I would probably do back as intake with a filter.

I'm guessing that the areas I colored orange are openings between area above radiator and motherboard compartment, and i'm sure I missed some too. They all need to be blocked to keep the heated air coming out of radiator from leaking back into motherboard compartment.

My bad, I understood that you told me to mount the top rad as intake ...

Makes me wonder if I should ask Greg to make laser cut acrylic block off plates for these cases thinking.gifthinking.gif

I know when I did a build in the In Win 909, I had him cut me acrylic fan hole block off plates. They worked great.

Yes all orange except for latch points and door area,

If top is restrictive in your situation add another set of fans, if radiator is offset at top there is 28mm of clearance between bottom rad fan and 8pin power pin, also there are no clearance issues with rear fan, except you will need G 1/4" extender or compression straight fitting etc on rad to avoid clearance issue with bottom left fan

I like the idea, but how many different ones would we end up with? Radiator fin areas are 120x120, 120x240, 120x360, 140x140, 140x280; .. with how many possilbe radiator placements? Or at least common placements?

I wondered if if might be easier to apply adhesive vinyl the size of mounting plate to block everything, then use a razor knife to cut out out the radiator area before mounting the radiator? Once radiator is installed, 1/2" 1" and 2" vinyl tape would make quick work of it, but one side would be sticking in open areas .. a built in fly catcher. D

At a guess the back vent area is only about have the area of 2x 240mm radiators so would be restricting radiator airflow, especially at higher fan speeds when it's needed most.

No room for fan above mounting plate.
Yeah, could sandwich top fans between mounting plate and radiator.

I found on the Evolv ATX just unlatching the top and just setting it back on leave a nice 5mm space .. that's way more additional venting than top has stock venting.

Maybe removing the mesh and cutting the grill on both sides of the top panel might help,but keeping the corners in order to secure the latch points.

I made some spacers and used some longer screws to space the top up on it's mounts. Was just playing around, because I'm air cooled and want front to back flow, with little to no air movement going up. This helps CPU cooler get cool air from front rather than heated air coming off of GPU cooler.

Here's an updated shot of my rig with the TG taken off. It's a work in progress

I doubt that will make a difference. How many cubic inches is that, realistically? IMO the front panel IO blocking the air and the side mesh are more of an issue than the front and rear grill. All of that probably wouldn't be as effective as resting the to on the clips.
