Well, I found a rosewill enclosure for 25 on newegg not long ago.
Or get creative and build an enclosure And pick up a controller from an enclosure on eBay cheap or just run an extra long sata data and power cable to it

So am going to flip fans on H105 and setup will be:
3 x SP120's 1450 RPM top - intake (H105 will now be: 2fans + add 1 net new fan, then Rad below )
3 x 120mm NZXT front - intake
1 x 140mm NZXT rear - exhaust

I will post me results after.

Update
I didn't get as good of results as planed, I did see a couple degrees less on CPU but prob not worth keeping setup as will be sucking in more dust over time. My gpu ran at same temps with no improvements.

Part of the problem is that the hot air being pulled out from 140mm rear fan is getting sucked in from h105 on top.

I might still try move h105 to front intake in push/pull format on bottom to slots to allow air to be dumped in closer to gpu fans, maybe then block all top vents to force air out only 140 mm rear fan, maybe leave 1 additional top rear exhaust and block other two?

What do you all think?

Try moving the h105 to bottom two front intakes like you suggested, then have the top 3 exhaust and back 140 intake, minimal dust intake being just the one 140 unfiltered vs 3 120 on top. See how that works and report back!

Should get a few better gpu temps as well being the high power front intake and back 140 pushing air in so the exhausts on top don't starve

Question to H440 owners. I got mine yesterday and moved everything over from my old case. I mounted my WD Green 2TB hard drive on the metal rack via the 4 screws. When I went to turn it on, somehow the HD PCB got zapped by the metal rack and fried it like it was metal on metal but I looked and there was a space.

The HD was sitting on the 4 rubber spacers to keep this from happening and wasn't actually touching the metal tray that the HD sits in. Am I missing something here? Why were the hd racks so poorly designed like this?

Could you maybe get a picture? I would like to see how it mounts.

Now I tried:
Moving the H105 to bottom Front 2 bays in push/pull (might be too much, haven't determined yet) bottom 2 fans are connect via y-splitter via mobo header and top two I plugged into the NZXT fan header on back of case(on H105) prob move them also to a mobo fan header soon. I have zero fans on top and just 140mm exhaust.

As planned the CPU is running much cooler around 10C drop, but the video card is still the same just under 60C if gaming long periods of time.

Next few tests:

1) I was thinking about a test blocking off the top bays to make sure the fans are pushing air out the only exhaust port.

2) Not sure if turning the 140mm as intake and placing a few 120mms in top for exhaust will do anything more?

Although my setup Seems to be pretty cool now, just have to get the GPU cooler... G10 I suppose if they will ever become available, might have to try the GPU Zip tie mod with my H60 in the meantime... Must order some VRM heat sinks.

#2 Will help you temps a bit with back 140 intake top 3 exhaust. Keep front cpu set up. Not sure how much but can't be worse

I'll get some pics tonight. I ordered a replacement Black drive but am afraid to mount it because of what happened.

Yes, I'd be scared to, I hope you didn't lose anything that you can't replace :-(

Thank you for taking the time though, I would drift into a deep(er) depression if this happened to any of my drives.

I think if I just replaced the PCB on the drive it would be fine but I can't find anywhere that sells the latest version of the PCB it uses. Until then I won't be able to recover anything off it.
