HAF 912 Top Exhaust Mesh and Intake Mount

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
This may seem like a silly question and maybe I am just going overboard, but I have looked everywhere and can't find any information on it. I have an Aerocool 200 mm on the top of my HAF 912 case for exhaust and a Megaflow 200 mm on the front.

Would it make any sense at all to remove the mesh on top? Also the front has mounting for two 120s and there seem to be large pieces of case in the way when using a 200 mm that would block flow. Should these be removed as well or is it even likely to even make a difference?

If anyone has any experience with this I would greatly appreciate input. Sorry the picture is rotated I don't seem to be able to fix it in my phone or on my computer. It does show normal when opened in full size mode though...



Since this picture the only difference I've made it that I upgraded my Mobo to Sabertooth 990FX R2.0. My temps seem ok with prime95 with cpu at 63 but Thermal Radar is reading my vcore 1 as getting up to 71-73 and that seems high to me. Correct me if I am wrong.

Air flow and cooling can only improve after restrictions are removed from a 912.

That is what I was thinking. I already removed the mesh from the rear where I have the H60 exhausting out. I just wasn't really sure if I would benefit from the top and front. My front fan seems to run at full speed pretty much always but that is only around 700 though Cooler Master does report a CFM of 110 on that fan whereas the aerocool only shows 76. I wish I had done more research when I bought the aerocool. I was thinking the side panel too like you have, I had read that you don't need much for the side panel though because it is more to just stir up the air to help avoid any dead spots. Did you notice much of a difference when you cut you the side?

Have a look at this thread, there is stuff about grill restriction and 912 modding for cooling there.
