your heatsink fan is pointed the wrong way. should vent to top

They said they wanted that air flow direction.

If it works out for them, why not?

I know heat rises, but fans will fight that anyway.

I'm really curious about your front exhaust, got more details on it for me?

Once you remove the drive cage the front of the case actually has a bunch of holes in the metal. I took off the front plate of the case, it's only held together with glue, and put velcro squares on all the corners so there is room for the fan to take in air. Recently i doubled the amount of velcro squares at the top so there is more room between the front plate and the intake.

I've also managed to stick an H80i in there and a NZXT G10 GPU bracket since i last posted but haven't updated this log yet. Didn't see any reason to haha but here are some pictures if you're interested.

yeh i know there is alot of holes in the front but i didnt realize you removed the front shiny panel as well. nice idea of spacing the front panel out.

how much of a gap did you allow? I actually thought of drilling out some air holes in the front or replace it with modders mesh.

im sure you realized you can use some slim fans and actually mount the GPU rad internally.

I have about half an inch of spacing between the case and the panel. The H80i completely removes the chance to even put even regular fan up there, and the rads im using are double thick. I'm fine with mounting it on the side since i never see it haha. As far as drilling holes i would just remove the front panel and use something like velcro squares to get some intake. I feel like that takes less away from the looks of the case.

fair enough mate, could i get a close up detail picture of the spacing?

i might just end up spacing it aswell and if i'd ever watercool it i'd be using thin rads with low fin density for slim fans.

i was thinking if you have a rad in the front you should have a fan spacing left at the back for another internal rad. ie where the 2 stock fan mounts but the one at the back.

Sure thing! I apologize ahead of time for potato quality. If there is any other angle you want to see just let me know. I get home around midnight so my lighting isn't the best.
