so.... i'm using dis case for 3-4 months i loved d way it look..... but i'm worried bout my HDD temps
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

as u can see my ssd & hdd's temp r above or close to 45 degrees ..... & i'm using 2 preinstalled exhasts as intake & another cooler master 120mm as exhaust ......

any suggestion ?


PS: i live in india ...ambient temp is 35
The stock fan are terrible for intake. The rear fan you have is very close to heatsink and should be removed, as it is not doing much.
I suggest you get some faster 140mm front intake.
How many drives are in the HDD cage? If only one, stick the HDD on lower position on cage and stick a fan to pull air up through vents.
You can try to move your PSU so your fan is inside and kinda help pull the heat out from under the metal shroud, not much.
If you have a non-modular PSU, the extra cables will prevent airflow under the shroud. Get a modular PSU, and use less cables.

With that high ambient your temps will rise.

yeah i've already changed 1front fan ... & opted for a scynth ultra caze 120 fan which is 3000rpm 110cfn fan running in 7v & moving a lots of air
I originally had 4+4 tb wd blacks in der but now i've a 2tb tb black & 500gb seagate ..... 2tb wd is now 47degrees & seagate is 42 degrees
i cannot move my PSU & it is a moduler PSU rm850x ... & bout a fan in hdd caze ... der is not mounting hole in der ..i can try zip tie .. & dat would create sum vibration .......



It looks lyk dos r passive cooling vent ...... now only way passive cooling works is if der is a -ve pressure ...so if der is -ve air flow in d case air should come from d dust proof vent infront of d HDD CAGE



i donno wat was nzxt thinking ... dey made a such a beautiful case but missed a fan mount spot ..we can easily put a 80 mm fan in der if d cage was 2inch behind from front .... or even changing d hdd cage top vent direction's angle ......

problem solved ... i had 1 antec spot cool ... put dat behind hard drive cage at low speed 15.3CFM ... & was rendering a file from wd black ... 2hr render time 39degree ...

bdw dat fan is in pull config.. so i'll intake from front dustproof opening & blows towards psu ....

Hey all, apologies if this has been asked and answered before but I've been through 30+ pages of the thread so far (still reading!) but i need to go to bed as i have work in the morning, so...

Bought this case to build my first custom loop in (yes i could have gone for an easier case like a Fractal but i loved the look of this too much).

Question i have is, i see you can fit a 280mm radiator in the front, using Noctua 25mm fans i guess i could get one that's 30mm thick, but are there any other dimensions i need to be aware of like height or width of the radiator?

Currently thinking of cheap and cheerful Magicool 280 Slim which comes in at 323 x 145 x 29 mm

And then similarly, for the rear 120mm radiator, I measured the width where the fan is, and i don't think i can get anything more than a 124mm width radiator? Is that right? Also have people installed thick (eg 60mm) 120mm radiators in the back, and how did they get on? I am not sure i'd have enough room for something like an Alphacool Monsta without covering the CPU block, but how about something like an Alphacool Nexxos 45 which measures 157x124x46mm + a 25mm fan?

I just recently started my custom loop and got a EKWB Coolstream PE 120 in the rear (38mm thick) using a Vardar fan in pull to have it fit right, I also took a dremel to the window clips where it was hitting and took the plexi down to nothing and the metal clips off. Then I fit a Swiftech MCR220 in the front with 25mm fans and it's like 59mm total where in the specs it's only a 58mm gap, it's snug but doesn't wiggle which is nice.

The 280mm may be stretching it since the ports won't really fit at the bottom without modding and the top headphone/power button pins may get in the way of ports at the top...Worth a shot tho!

Hmmmm i'll rethink on the rear radiator. I'm not very good with DIY, this is my first attempt at any sort of watercooling and i think i'll limit myself to trying to bend PETG tubing and spray painting fans / radiators!

I see that the rad you mention is 130mm wide so i wonder whether one of the ones i was looking at might fit without dremeling and cutting the case, as they are only 124mm eg
http://www.alphacool.com/shop/radiators/active-radiators/12341/alphacool-nexxxos-ut60-full-copper-120mm?c=20545
Or even this magicool which seems to be 120mm width in total:
http://www.magicool.biz/product_120ultra.htm

Also found someone on the modzoo who fit a 280mm black ice radiator and seems just enough space to get it in after the headphone i/o ports :

http://themodzoo.com/2014/11/nzxt-s340/4/

Also the black ice radiator is one i was looking at anyway as i've heard good things about it!

The 124mm wide one should fit well. 3mm on each side would clear the window edge. The first setup I had is in my Signature photos if you want an idea of how tight a fit that is. I can send you current photos when I get home as well...

120mm width Magicool would be perfect you'd have full clearance of everything, but if you get a super thick one over 45mm it's gonna cover most of your motherboard.

Hi guys thought i'd add to the immac builds on here with my very first pc/gaming build ever, will be glad to hear any inputs as this was my first time building anything to do with pc's as im more into my cars the only thing i could bring over was hiding wiring haha, anyways specs are as follows:

i5 6600k @ 4.8ghz
MSI Krait Gaming motherboard
MSI GTX 960 2G - painted white
MSI GTX 960 100ME 2G - painted white (yes i know the led needs to go white, im still trying to figure out what sort of led it is lol)
Corsair Vengeance LPX 16gb 3000mhz - white
Corsair H105 liquid cpu cooler
Corsair SP120L radiator fans
Corsair AF120 rear case fan
Corsair AF140 top case fan
Corsair AX1200i Power supply
D-link wireless card
Samsung 850 EVO 500gb ssd

im gonna get some white gloss vinyl wrap and do the top deck of case, ssd and maybe also wrap the back of the lower gtx board, also contemplating getting a Corsair Airflow ram cooler and giving it the same white touches

anywaysss...let me know what u think also any ideas for further white theming smile.gifthumb.gif

It's builds like yours that remind me that I don't need to spend a ludacris amount of money for a good looking rig!
