Hey guys, I got my white H440 today which I am very happy with. But I have one problem, my 780Ti Classified blows the air directly into the side panel where the glass is. This makes the temps go up 5-6c compared to the side panel off or taking the glass off the side panel.
I have tried to replace the stock NZXT fans with Noctua fans but it doesn't help much at all.

I was thinking about modding the window with air vents exactly where the videocard blows the air out.
I also know that water cooling would be an option, but the temps aint that high with the panel off.

What do u guys think, can the window be modded or will I just end up cracking or destroying it smile.gif

I would go buy a large sheet of plexi if you have never worked with it before, cut a few pieces down to the window size and give it a shot with your dremel tool... Just a trick of the trade tip for you... keep the plastic or paper covering on the plexi when cutting, it makes for clean lines, then peal once all of the custs are made.

This way if you mess up you have not destroyed the factory window.thumb.gif

Ordered my H440 after it was on back order at NCIX for 3 weeks; should be picking it up tomorrow.

I'm still waiting for my NH-U9B to arrive at NCIX from Austria, even though they said it was in stock. I guess they just like to ship all the way from Europe instead of just shipping it from Toronto to Vancouver. Will build as soon as I have the U9B.

You could always go to the hardware store and buy some screen and just make a from for it and use the screen in replacement for a window. Then your case will have the side panel yet be in a sense completely wide open.

Just ran to the garage and cut a quick piece for an idea. You can see the mesh size, and its just your typical nylon'ish screen, black in color. Or as phibz said, and mount some of this stuff in the window as well near the video cards

Hey guys, got my white H440 last week and completed a build, but I have a question about airflow optimization for the top vent. My current airflow setup has the three stock NZXT V2 120mm fans as intakes, the stock 140mm rear exhaust, and a Corsair H100i set in a push exhaust configuration on the top.

It appears that the hot air the H100i is pushing to the top isn't completely venting out because of the partial enclosure, and that much of it is instead getting recycled into the case. I put a hard drive in the top-most mounting position, and it was running 12 degrees Celsius warmer than the HDD that I placed in the bottom mounting spot.

For those with more experience with this type of thing, do you think it would be best to either cut a piece of cardboard to close the open fan mounting position at the top (so that air must be pushed out of the vents rather than recycled into the case), or reverse the direction of the H100i to pull air into the case from the top? I had considered doing the latter initially, but opted not to in order to avoid creating another intake filter, as well as to keep the intake to exhaust ratio fairly even.

I commented on this many pages ago. My suggestion would be to use both locations as intake with the only exhaust being the rear 140 or both as exhaust and tape up the additional vents under the top and front to keep the air from returning to the case.

Won't know what works best until someone tries them out. I'm going to tape the vents closed for my build and see how that plays out.

I'm going to first try to tape up the vents on the top as well. I'm thinking of cutting down a magnetic vent cover, which hopefully will stick without the need to use any tape.

Mr-Mechraven why are you planning to put the GPU back to air, seems like a great setup and I was planning to do this myself on my build but if there is something undesirable about it can you let us know? Is it just because the HDD is not able to be mounted? (You could Velcro it upside down to other)

Nice build thumb.gif

Thanks
