Ive also seen people mod the front to install an open mesh. But as far as stock parts go, Im not sure whats available.

I inquired with Corsair and the new 450d front panel is not compatible with the 750d. The tech support guy even tried it while I was on the phone.

I have Silverstone magnetic filters that I screwed on to the bottom and they work great. The Demcifilter doesn't stay on too well, because it is not a flat surface and its hanging upside down. it moves around on me easily.

@hobbs I'm sure it's not for everyone. I just wanted to offer another suggestion. I have 4 of the 12" CCT in my case and you can even see them looking dead-on with the case. I didn't have many issues with the inverters once I sleeved the two cables that go to each separately. Together made them not want to light as bright. Not sure why. I find they gave a more even glow apposed to the spots of the LED, but maybe that is different with the UV LEDs, as I was using blue ones. Good to get different opinions though, nice pictures thumb.gif.

Here is one with my 4 CCTs


Interesting you should mention the Demciflex filters!! biggrin.gif

Just received mine today, and while I'm satisfied with mesh size, i am less than ecstatic about the magnets they use. It's weak as all heck and falls off at the slightest bump.
And with the top filter in place (top used as intake), i have this horrible whooshing sound, kinda like a teeny tiny vacuum.
Also, if you do plan to order, dont get the brushed aluminium. rolleyes.gif

Edit: And i got around to looking at the front panel closely, you were right.....i have no idea how to remove it completely.how did they get the screws in there in the first placE?

It's a pain, I had to cut the zipties enough to tilt the whole thing upside down to remove them else they just fall. I guess if you have a magnetic screwdriver it is ok. Also I'm getting my Demciflex filter today too! 20$ of ebay for the top filter. I'm hoping it does a better job than the stock one. We will see. It is such a pain for me to remove the radiator and fans with my setup unfortunately.

Sorry about that - I was being a little cryptic

When I installed my video cards, the thumbscrew holes on the case didn't line up with the holes in cards. I had to apply pressure against the rear (i.e. where all the expansion slots, PSU, rear fan are located) in order to get everything screwed down.

I don't think it's a huge deal. Either it's cause the motherboard is slightly warped or that's how it's manufactured + the way the gpu sits in the pci slot plus it's dimensions and tolerances and then you have to screw it into a hole that has it's own set of dimensions and tolerances. It's not surprising you had to apply some pressure. I normally just move the gpus until they line up and get the screw in as quickly as possible threaded.

Thanks again for the replies. The more I think about it the more I think I'll plop the lower rad at the front and see what I can come up with. Does anyone here have links to images with the modded front to allow for more airflow?

Thanks.

Just quickly browse through the threads photos. Top right hand corner and you can find the post that describes the picture you were looking for.

I guess I'll be re-reading this entire thread this evening with a cu of tea. I'm placing orders for a lot of the stuff I need and I might as well pull the trigger and order the case already.

Thanks to everyone for the really fast replies. I appreciate the help.

There are lots of great ideas in here. Even though it's a lot to read, it's very worthwhile.

Agreed on the Demcifilters, the magnets are very week and although the mesh is very fine, it does restrict airflow a bit. When I was toying with it on the bottom fan it increased the noise level and cut down on the blowing power...guess it was having a a hard time sucking in air. Might work better with a static pressure fan but then what's the point? Also, the top filter is larger than the stock one and thus does not fit inside the panel. It fits around it nicely but I would have wanted something that fit into the recess better. It would work good if you wanted to double up your filters using the stock one and then the demci on top. I bought the whole kit for the 750d and I think I am only using the little rectangular one at the back above the 140mm fan. They are just too restrictive and magnets are week.

Should have my build done in a week or so. The painting of the front cover looks hot!! and I finished my hidden SSD and HDD icy dock hot swap bay. Have a look:
