Oh good. I was ready to return my case!

I have a question about distance of fans to radiator. Is 6 to 7 mm too far?

Did he give any hints as to the final design?

A bit disappointing to be honest, if that is the final design. It's about as standard as it gets, looks like a DIY job at home.

Now if it looked more like what jassmith posted http://cdn.overclock.net/b/ba/ba377c46_rTe0jvo.jpeg then i'll be all over it.

Ditto.

I want some sort of metal grid or something to protect the filter and the very least.

You could easily push that filter off.

I just emailed him to check. He wasn't too keen on keeping that as the final design.

I would really like it to be the three square openings like in the previous page. Also, does the front cover have restrictions too? Should we start looking into cutting vent holes too?

Get some rubber washers, i.e. Home Depot plumbing area, and shim your front panel forward. Works great, lowers temps, and still looks good.

I really thing cutting the front panel will ruin the look of this case.

That's actually my pc. I chose that for maximum airflow. I know it looks standard and tbh I can't see it as my view angle doesn't allow me to. I chose the largest space that didn't look weird. As for the filter it's removable as it's magnetically attached from the bottom. You could not take it off unless you removed the lid them removed intenionaly as the magnetic strip is entire perimeter of the filter. I could easily swap it out for something more firm like a speak grill or aluminum perforated plate. The most important thing for me was temps and then aesthetics afterwards. I have almost identical temps without the top. Now that I've had the id for a few days I can tell you heat will still build up under the lid but not enough to effect temps in more than what can be considered a repeatable small margin of 1c at best 2c. The hole or other cuts would be more looks orientated. However, I will say that it will not produce as much of a temp difference as a more open design would.


For a reference point. I have 2 360 gts in this case which is pretty much the maximum possible without severe modding or attaching rads to the exterior. It is currently 25.5c ambient. Under load my hottest gpu is hitting 51-52c and I have sli.

In terms of fan speed they are at 1200 rpm max. I find increasing my fans which go all the way up to 2400 does not bring a dramatic or worth while change over the noise it brings.

I was thinking of drilling a bunch of tiny holes (1/8") close together in a grid pattern, kind of like a built in grille.
