If possible, can one of you fine folks please give me the exact dimensions of the side panel? (Including details on the exact holes in the corners etc.) My uncle does glass work & i spoke to him about cutting a new one for me. Thanks!

You mention the side panel and main panel. Which do you need dimensions of?

Thanks for the reply bro. Apologies. Was referring to the same panel. The largest panel. The square panel. My bad. Hoping to get this fabricated in the next day or two due to the rest of parts for the build arriving soon. Any help will be greatly appreciated as mentioned.

Panel is square at 22.5 inches. The holes are about .31 inches in diameter, and the center of each hole is about 15mm from the 2 close edges. It might be wise to take the case and metal bar supports over when he cuts the holes so that you get them just right.

Thanks!

Exactly. What you linked isn't exactly a fitting but a fitting adapter. Like the previous poster mentioned, fitting/tube size doesn't matter for these. The ones you need to pay attention to are the angled adapter that actually come with a fitting or has a fitting somehow integrated into it.

Or should I go push pull (8x fans)?

Right now my 4x fans are pulling air from the front of the case out the back. Note that my rad is not sideways. I'm not familiar yet with the exact way I could get it sideways and since all my tubing is done, really don't feel like tackling that "mod".

Your thoughts?

Yes 4x 120mm fans will be enough for your set up. Since the Core P5 has more natural airflow than a standard case, I personally do not see a reason for a push pull set up unless your were running SLI, extreme overclocking and more robust of a rig.

There is no real "correct way". You can have your fans pulling air through the back of the case but personally I am not a fan because you are then pulling the hot air from the rad and bouncing it off the front glass panel which is then coving all of your components. You can also have the fans set up like most do that push air through the rad and out the back of the case. Yes it makes the mesh a little pointless and why I will not install it when my build is complete. If you do not have the tempered side glass panels I recommend pushing air to the back of the case as you will have more natural cool air at the fans than pulling through the back of the case. Remember the back of your mobo behind the GPU gives off a lot of heat and with the back panel on the case most of that hot air is stored in that location, so pulling air from there to the front of your case will result in warmer air going through your rad.

While this is true, the vast majority of the air will be coming straight through the filter. I tested this on mine and there was zero difference in CPU/GPU temps. So I went with pulling air through the filter and out the front.

Those with less rad space may have different results, of course. I'm cooling a 6600K and 1080 with a 360+240 loop (see my sig rig).

Just get rid of the dumb mesh and buy an air compressor to blow your fans/rad out sometimes.
post #3080 of 3192
Much thanks again. Pieced together the exact specs as best as possible & took one of the smaller panels to match the shade. Hoping all goes well & should be collecting it within the next couple of days =)

Here is the entire build:

Unfortunately i had to hold off on the water cooling til early next year =(
Using a Cryorig H7 temporarily which should be fine.
Currently waiting on the last few parts to come in.
