The OEM fans are surprisingly quiet also!

Hey Team,

At 28 finally built a rig that I believe is semi-good, and clean. thought i would post it for some reason.
One of the photos shows a 3 hour rewiring of the hidden side panel, dont ask me why but even though I will never see it (no one will) something seems more satisfying knowing that it's neat inside LOL.





Specs:

NZXT H440 case
Intel i5 2500K @ 4.0Ghz (hoping to increase now that load temps are under 50 degrees)
Gigabyte Z68XP-UD4 MB
Gigabyte 4GB 770 GFX (got the 4Gb version incase i want to SLI later)
Corsair 8Gb Ram
Corsair HX750 PSU
Corsair H110 cooler
Scandisk Ultra 256GB SSD
Raptor 500GB HD

Just waiting for the new 24" GSYNC monitors to hit Australia.

This is an H630 questions, my case has finally shipped and I have a couple of Ideals of what I want to do. My question to the club is, is it possible to extend the front and top panels out to add extra clearance for fans. Right now I know I can't mount the fans under to the top or front cover, but I would like to do this. If you have an ideal on how I can achieve this it would be helpful. I was thinking about putting extending braces to boost the clearance of the panels while adding mesh around to give it better airflow at the time. The only downside is I’m pretty sure It will look ugly and loose the simplicity look of the case

2nd Ideal: Create a shifted look to the case while still using the mesh, except this time I can extend half of the top portion so the lip that meets with the front of the case still remains the same, Same thing applied to the front panel lifting the bottom half portion to add mesh around the lifted part to increase airflow. Don't really want to alter how those two edges come together at the top front part of the case,

Is it possible for a H630 owner to take pictures more like closeups of how the front panel mounts to the frame and the front panel holes for connecting, same thing with the top please!

I have way to many ideals......

So I decided to Water-cool my 780Ti Classified, I am currently using a EK 240 Radiator in the front with a D5 Pump and EK Classified Water block. I am not using the CPU on the loop since I already have a H100i on it. My plans in the future is to change the 240 Radiator in the front with a 360 Radiator and move the 240 Radiator to the top and adding the CPU to the loop.
The space in the H440 is tight but I got the D5 pump and reservoir plus a 4TB and a 2TB HDD inside.
So far I am very happy with the H440 but the biggest problem is the front panel which does not have enough airflow so I running my PC with it off. What I am thinking is cutting the steel in the front panel exactly where the fans are, and adding somekinda mesh.

It appears that the H440 does not like to have it's fans configured in an extraction configuration in any fashion. I would recommend that you configure your case for intake on the upper rad also. This should also increase your airflow across your VRM's, which should drop them down a few c.

Both the front and top panel have too much restriction to force air out of the system, but drawing in fresh air should lesson the impact. With that said, many of us are also looking at some sort of mod to increase the open area of both panels, such as a screen mesh, holes or slots.

I'm looking forward to seeing who gets there first and with what design. Myself, I'm thinking about a full mesh design to follow the outside lines of both panels.

The best most OEM looking and easiest was is to cut out the panel and install a radiator or fan grill to the top of the panels. Here I did something like that to my front h630 intake. The fans will fit in front and panel will close but without the panel and foam cut out it obviously wont get any air flow. Here is an example.

For this particular set-up the push fans are mounted behind the front panel attached to the case metal mounts. Then my rad and pull fans are on the inside.

There are many grills on the market that will look good on both white and black h630's, This one just fit my theme.
