Thank you! Also would you recommend the Zalman HSF for the 6600k? I'm aiming for both silence and cooling in my build.

I can't really say. I've never read any reviews on it or compared it to other coolers. That's more of a question for the Air Cooling section

I have I'm waiting for a reply, but if I have to have it shipped from from America it'll end up costing more for the panel than I paid for the case. Not to mention the waiting time.

Initially I was dead set on an AirCooler for this case.. Now I'm pretty dead set on a nzxt Kraken x41 (140mm Radiator) Water.. If only the stores could get these damnd (beautiful) 6700k's in stock......mad.gif

My GPU a little bit hotter than I would like any suggestions how to know a couple degrees off e.g another radiator placement I've not thought of. Also still looking for another windowed side panel if anyone has any info.

I'd flip the fans around so that the front radiator is intake and the 80mm fans in the back are exhaust. It may shed off a degree or two, but your options are kind of limited with this case on fan/radiator placement

In regards to the windowed side panel, if all else fails you could probable make one yourself. You could get a cheap sheet of plexi glass from a local hardware store and cut one of the vented side panels into a window and mount the plexi with some double sided mounting tape

Haha XD Did not see that biggrin.gif YEah... fans wrong way! Also i have had better results in small margins with Pull-fans config on radiators..imo that physic speaks for it self. Pull = Max possible. Push.. = not so much tongue.gif

Edit: + this is absolutely a radiator pull case! You want that fresh air. Dont be afraid of a hot motherboard, Those 80's will do the job.

Edit2: I was also allways planing on having every radiator this way in this case.. Now i think more of having it sideways, and warm water in the botom cold out the top (Will probably give the best cooling imo.

Have tried air in front out back as far as I can tell doesn't make a difference in GPU or cpu temp. (If it does it's less than a couple of degrees) But does dump ALOT of heat in the case.

Didn't really want to start cutting up my case but think I might have too.
