Lastly, is there space for a 280mm radiator in the bottom or just 240?
EDIT: Also, with 3 fans pulling air through a relatively narrow slit in the front, how often does the dust filter need to be cleaned?
sgtgates is getting excellent results, he's using a whole lot of radiator(s) which certainly helps
I'm on the lookout for results with more modest rigs with a liquid cooled cpu on a single rad and a pair of air cooled gpus.
That discrepancy between the number/size of fans that can be installed and the size of the venting is universally questioned. I really hope nzxt is taking note of that and will make design changes to address that concern at some point. I think they'd sell more of these cases if they did. An option for different front/top panels with some additional mesh grill work on the large surfaces sort of thing, given user removable sound dampening behind the extra grill work... folks could trade off silence vs cooling more flexibly and the case could cater to a wider audience.
