Hi guys joining the club soon. I have the case on the way and a have a few questions. I seems a few builds here have a 240/280mm RAD on the front part of the case. Now is it advisable to have the fans in between the front of the case and the rad (hidden) and blowing the air INTO the case (since no exahust in the front) thus having the air being blown towards the back? I was debating that setup with an H115i or just going air cooled with a Noctua U12S *I know it says 160 clearnace ) but I have seen builds with that fan. I doubt I will be overclocking so I could even go the Noctua U9 series but wanted to keep my temps a bit cooler if possible.

I guess my question really is Im not sure I need the H115i if not OCing I figured itd look cool and be quiet, however I know I may have some pump noise. I was thinking of moving the HD cage up the line a bit if I go with an air cooled fan. and then put 2 x 120mm in the bottom. I have read that using 2 bottom fans intaking cool air from the filter is the best way to keep this cool and quiet.

So I think I am now leaning more towards

Noctua U9/U12 (un sure yet)
A Cougar Vortex PWM 120 Cooling CF-V12HPB (ordered already) as the 120mm rear ehaust fan
2 x 120mm for the bottom of the case(moving the HD drive bay up)

My only concern is cabling when having 2 x 120mm fans on the bottom leavs no real room to bunch up excess cabling there. THanks so much for reading, hopefully I can get some inputs on that setup vs having the Corsair h115 .

Ordered a Noctua U9-s should be good for no overclock , but will decide which to do install and keep (h115i setup or the air cooled) once parts arrive.

As for clearance, I've said it before, but this case *will* fit a 160mm CPU cooler, despite what the stupid manual says (it says 156mm). I say 'stupid', because 156mm means a lot of the good coolers can't be used in this case (way to negatively market your own case, inWin!). I have a classy Be Quiet! Dark Rock 3 in there (160mm), and it fits just fine.

I actually removed my front glass-panel. I feel putting it on there was pretty much a design error. If you look at the InWin 303, for instance, it has the same kind of grill (on the side) as the 805 has on the front: and it appears uncovered (as it should be, IMHO).

Surprisingly, an 'open' front looks rather good (reminiscent of an 'open' speaker, sans cover: rather chique, really). And it immediately solves any and all heat issues (caused by that selfsame glass, of course).

I for one love the front glass panel. Just a rubber shim helps the airflow tons.

Also, I edited your posts to make one post, next time could you use the edit function please smile.gif

I figured since I'm not over clocking went with the slimmer noctua 9 already . I knew the 12 would fit but it's OK perhaps it's quiter smile.gif. I think I would want to leave the glass on. I heard it's best to put fans in the bottom of this case as intake to grab cool air from outside pushing it up and therefore towards that top rear exhaust. I will move the HD cage up where I was initially going to place the h115i rad.

I did both. smile.gif Bottom fan-intake, moved drive cages to top, *and* removed front glass panel. 2x 14cm Be Quiet! in fore, 1x 12cm Be Quiet! fan in aft, 2x 12cm Be Quiet! in bottom, and 2x Be Quiet! fans on Be Quiet! Dark Rock 3 cooler. And all 15 dbA. This case is totally inaudible, and 23C idle CPU (i7 6700K), and 64C full load.

See I don't want to remove the front glass and in one review it was mentioned putting fans in there raised temps for them a little blowing the hot air around in the case and had better results using two fans on the bottom in taking pushing cool air from outside the case up towards the exhaust fan in the back . That was my thinking in doing a similar setup . I can see why removing the glass helped but I personally want the front glass on . Planning on i7 not over clocked and a GTX 1080 when available from evga

If you read through the thread, I think I've posted a few times that you can easily shim it, a few users did it also.

I did read that portion, just not sure I wish to do that. I guess my question is if I leave it stock is the best position for additional fans in the bottom as intake and leave the front alone
