Are you talking about the glass window or the mounting of the res on the PSU cover?

Replacing the side plexiglass with actual glass.

Sorry, I was quoting the reference to mounting the res on the PSU. However, I really like your idea for using glass as I plan on modding my windowed side and was thinking about what to replace it with.

Removed all the unused HDD trays from the front, made the top an intake (3 x 120mm) and the h80i rear exhaust

It has shaved a few degrees off the cpu & gpu temps, but best of all my vrm temps have dropped considerably now the fans are pushing cool air on to them smile.gif

VRMs top out at 50C, whereas before changing anything it was getting up to 65C

Happy is me!

*update*

this setup is much better for my H440

as well as the decent drop in vrm temp, my gpu temp has taken a good drop as well

With both GPUs overclocked, they would get up to 52C in PS2 on the previous fan setup (admittedly not overly hot as it goes)

Now they don't get any warmer than 42C while overclocked

Obviously other games will vary, just using PS2 as an example

So, you're using other the 3 top and 3 front for intake and only the rear for exhaust?

I thought it might. Too much exhaust with those small openings would create a high-static pressure area and force the air back into the case through the vents due to lower restriction. This was the same thing that happened to the old Antec Sonata.

The H440 black and red is in stock at Newegg just ordered mine! Possible convert from a 2 time Corsair C70 owner.

yup
3 x 120mm top - intake
3 x 120mm front - intake
2 x 120mm push pull on the h80i as an exhaust

when i'm gaming or doing anything intensive while overclocked I have the h80i set to balanced or performance mode, which exhausts at a really good rate

What are your thoughts??
Has anyone mounted a res horizontal before?
I was planning on the same thing! Was hoping the photon 270 d5 will fit there nice!

Do you have radiators in the front and top? Or are these only populated by fans?
