I got the Dark Rock TF. I would assume that it would fit in the BH4. It wasn't very difficult to install. I made one or two mistakes along the way that made it take a little longer than expected to install. As long as you follow the instructions correctly, you shouldn't have any issues.

Really sad my gpu is too long to get a fan in front so will have to get a smaller one soon. Anybody have any recommendations I could do to help the temps in the mean time like adding an exhaust fan to the back grill or put on the top fans, etc?

That's a pretty great looking build. I like the all white paint job. On a separate note, what are those speaker mounts/where did you find them?

Thanks and Proline Adjustable Studio Monitor Stand - Pair Black from Guitar Center but you can get a similar pair way cheaper anywhere online bought the studio monitors for the desk but found them too big and there was no way I was putting my pc on the carpet so went to GC and found these.

Hi guys,

I just ordered a BH2 along with a Corsair H100i v2....Im guessing it will only top mount, and if thats the case; can I still get standard 120mm fans installed on the front? Wanted to order up fans before it got here biggrin.gif Otherwise I may need to reconsider the cooler.

Thanks in advance guys!

The build will be 6700k based and was hoping for as much of a cpu OC as the silicon lottery allows without temp issues biggrin.gif

Edit:
I do want to add, anyone use Corsair H5? I havent been able to find much on it with this case, just want to make sure some weird dimension on the fan doesnt hit anything. Im just about 80% sure the tank it going to hit the side panel or just BARELY fit....haha gotta love ITX biggrin.gif

Thanks. The dark rock spiked in price big time so I just went with the ugly u9s.

I just found the Thermalright Macho 90, which is 135mm tall. Has anyone tried it out?

Perhaps rotate your CPU cooler so the fins are being cooled by the front intake fan as well? Won't help your GPU but it might knock off a degree or 2 on the CPU biggrin.gif

While at PDXLan I talked with a guy who had a complaint about the back of his Bullet case being much warmer than the front.

I went and looked at it with him and the problem was easy to spot and correct. The heatsink fan was blowing just as fast as the intakes were, so I adjusted it so that it would run slower. This allowed air to circulate around the heatsink instead of being pushed out. As soon as I did that, ambient temps dropped significantly (cool to the touch) behind the heatsink.

Keep that in mind if going for an air-cooled system, especially with large heatsinks that block a large section of the case from the intakes.
