Does the positive air flow mean to run both the GPU area and other side panel fan as intake? Because I was planning on running the two GPU fans intake, and the CPU/side panel fan as exhaust. Which would you recommend with an ACX cooler?

Either way will be positive air pressure, if it's possible, I prefer the run all three as intakes. There is ample venting on the case to allow the heated air out of the case without using a fan as an exhaust.

Yes, you are supposed to set all 3 fans as intakes for positive air pressure. What happens then is that all the heat expels outside of the case as the 2 sides are open with ventilation and then rear has the vents to push the heat out of there too. For the two fans under the GPU, I was using 2x Corsair AF120's and then the slim case fan on the panel.

In the week that I had the case running like this, I didn't have any issues with heat. Granted I didn't OC my components like some might be.

My idle temps on the 770 ACX were 29 degrees roughly with 58-59 degrees under load. My CPU was at 32-36 degrees on idle with about 45-48 degrees under load.

Thanks for the vid and info! What do you mean the sata cable doesn't reach for the 1TB WD Black? Can't you just buy a longer one? Not sure why you'd have to replace the drive with the 2.5'?

Not sure if his issue is the same as what I had. When I had 3 HDD's (2 HDD slot in the rear & 1 HDD on top of PSU cover) in this case, I had an issue where I could not get the 3rd PSU cable to plug in to the HDD since it wasn't long enough.

Ahh, did you use the short cables? I'll only be running 1x SSD and 1x 3.5" HDD, how can I avoid this, get an extension cable or something?

I just used the cables that came with the 450W PSU. You should be good with 1 SSD and 1 3.5" HDD with the included cables for the 450W PSU.

I went with the stock cables that came with the 450Gold, but I didn't use ANY of the included SATA power cables. I prefer to use molex->SATA splitter cables, and then just use the molex cable that comes with the psu. It makes it easier to do cable management and so forth, since it's one less cable to plug into the psu.
