post #4271 of 19729
i need to put a grill on my rear fan, i had to use the filter from the bottom fan to cover the side fan and to help filter out dust and stuff, it looks a little awkward but helps.

Stellarex,

Check out my build log here with pictures, it might help you out some.
HERE

The extra cabling that is from the Corsair can be placed in the HDD bay and tucked nicely down on the bottom. For the cables that you NEED for power, I have put them in between the mobo tray and the side panel. It is a TIGHT fit but keeps them out of the way quite nicely.

I have also modded my case to put a 120MM fan below my optical drive. It blows straight over my RAM to my Xigmatek....I have found that to work out quite nicely!

i put a fan in my drive bays also thanks to someone who gave me the idea on here forgot his name but i cut up the pieces of metal that block the drive bay slots and use them to mount the fan. It blows over my ram and into my xiggy dark knight too.

yup My fans are extremely loud when i turn them fully on it sounds like a jet engine turned on it is that loud. I turned them down to where i barely hear them and my temps actually dont change at all if i turn them off.

I actually removed the side fan and placed it in front. The honeycomb cutouts on the side panel really enhance the noise so that's why I moved it. Temps are actually a little bit better the way I have it now.

I'll have to tear my case apart this weekend, maybe even tonight when I put my new cooler in and I'll look into better cable management.

Thanks for the write up and support. +rep for you!

No worries Stellarex.....glad I could help out! The Corsair can be a bit of a challenge to get it "in" but once it is there it is a great PSU. The cable management is also a bit of a challenge but once done is well worth the effort!
