Nice, I was going to add a second cable management hole there myself (below the existing one on the motherboard tray). It should really be there by default. The ATCS 840 has good cable management. First of all there is a decent amount of space behind the motherboard tray. I have an Antec TruePower New 750W PSU - most of the cables are hardwired and I'm using two additional modular ones since I have 12 case fans. Since the case is so open, you'll have no issues getting the cables behind the motherboard tray. Secure them to the edges of the motherboard tray and drive bays with cable ties. It's really easy, but time consuming.

The ATCS 840 is wonderful, but has some flaws. Dust filters are provided for fan intakes, but not for non-fan air intakes, such as the rear of the case, which need dust filters, because the case is designed for negative pressure. I have found a great material to use as a homemade dust filter. Get it now on eBay before it is gone. Finest quality (industrial grade) polyester filter mesh (135 microns), 49†x 36†for $8 shipped.

It's not "designed for negative pressure". It just has negative air pressure by default. And the external air duct covers the holes at the back - with a fan mounted in it, dust won't enter through there. My ATCS 840 has positive pressure anyway.

Soon to be an ACTS 840 owner - the case should arrive tomorrow . This is my second build and I could use some help with a some final planning problems. Assuming everything arrives on time, I'll be building over the weekend.

My goals are to have the CPU OC'd to 4.0-4.2Ghz (probably underclock the ram), OC the graphics card (no specific setting), and have a "reasonably" quiet case with all fans running as stock speed with the possible exception of the heat sink fans. I'd like to get positive air pressure as well.

Quick Specs:

MotherBoard = Asus P6X58D-E
CPU = I7-930
DDR3 = GSkill RipJaws 2000Mhz
CPU Heatink = Thermalright Silver Arrow
PSU = Corsair HX-850 (mounted on the bottom - personal preference)
Graphics Card = MSI GTX460 Cyclone
HDD = 1TB WD Black (OS/software), WD Black 2TB (data), Samsung F3EG 2TB backup.
Audio = Asus Xonar DX2 PCI -E
Optical = basic DVD-RW + DVD-Rom
Single 5.25" bay HDD hotswap rack = Thermaltake "Max 4"

Adding a Thermalright TY-140mm fan (fits 120mm mounts) at the bottom, plus 2 x Noctua NF-P12 behind HDD cage (I figured the higher pressure models would be better since the HDD's block some of the air flow) and replacing the rear 120mm w/ another Noctua NF-P12.

Here's what I'm trying to figure out:

(1) The case will be located under an "executive" type desk which is enclosed on three side. Figure about 43" (w) x 29" (d) x 26-27" (h) of space underneath. The area is a carpeted though I do have a plastic chair mat over that area where I'll put the case. Still, I'm sure the case will sink into the carpet a bit and the feet are only 1/2" tall. There won't be much if any free space for the PSU or added fan to get air.

I've found these after market case feet which are 7/8" tall and ridiculously expensive (IMO). Still, another 3/8" will give me enough clearance. I could try to add this Lian Li case wheels set which is almost the same price (only $5 for black version). However, I'm not a modder so there's a chance I could screw up drilling the holes. Plus I'm not sure if all those mounting screws might interfere w/the PSU mount, etc.

Any thoughts on either option, or better yet, a cheaper, easy alternative (other than put it on some blocks).

(2) I have A LOT of dust in my place so I will need to clean the filters at least every two weeks. I don't want to try reversing the poorly designed PSU filter mount as some have done (too much modding), but I don't want to unscrew and remount the bottom fan all the time just to clean the PSU filter either.

I think this 120mm magnetic strip air filter, placed on the outside-bottom of the case could be a good solution. However, I wonder if putting a filter so far from the PSU might cause too much air restriction. Actually, I don't even know if I need a 120mm or a 140mm filter.

Any ideas on this or alternative solutions?

The only thing left is figuring out positive airflow/fans, but this post is probably waaay too long as it is. Plus a lot of that is trial and error anyway.

Any help is appreciated. Thanks.

@ Chunky_Chimp - I'll wait until I can post a pic or two of the completed build before asking to be added to the owners list. That way I'll have some motivation to do a decent cable management job XD.

If you haven't bought your P12's yet, do consider Gentle Typhoon AP-14's. They push a bit more air and are significantly quieter than P12's. I have both kinds of fans, and I use AP-14's. More: rather than use the two P12's I have for my case, I have ordered another two AP-14's.

I tested them both on a Megahalems (see below).

Thanks for the reply. I know the Scythe Gentle Typhoons are very populate, but I've not been impressed. I did check some reviews on fans and it seemed that the NF-P12's were at least a good choice, especially on CFM/noise ratio, if not the best value. I've got in in the front of my Lian Li PC60II Plus, and even with an added fine metal mesh filter and the front face plate on, I can still feel air pulled into the case and it is pretty quiet. Again, not dismissing your opinion - I'm just not a fan of them right or wrong.

As strange as it may sound, the most pressing issue for me is what to do in terms of raising the case off the floor so there's more space underneath for the PSU and bottom fan intake. I'd like to get the PSU fan filter issue resolved as well. I can't measure PSU internal temps so trial & error doesn't work.

If it wouldn't be cluttering up the thread, I'd be happy to post my configuration ideas for comments, but figured this post is long enough as is (>_>...)

Thanks for the reply, and please, if anyone has any ideas regarding the above to issues, please let me know. I really wanted to have the feet question solved by now & the parts delivered before I build, but now I think it's too late.

If you take out the dust filter that comes with the case first and then add one of those magnetic filters like you posted to the bottom of the case, it shouldn't be a problem I think.

Can a dual slot videocard be used in the 7th slot? Looks like the lower motherboard tray bracket would have to be removed and the PSU placed at the top. I'm looking at the Gigabyte UD3R if the 7th can be used. Otherwise I would take a look at the MSI Big Bang-Xpower. I'm kicking around the idea of dual Zotec 480 AMPs, removing the top 230 fans, adding 2 intake fans at the bottom, 3 120's on the drive cages, and ducting the exhaust from the external air duct and rear exhaust 120 outside. My portable a/c is right next to where I will put the 840 and I can utilize the window mount. The AMPs are 3 slots which cause spacing problems, but they run cool and quiet for 480's. Dumping tons of hot air into the case will require some mighty airflow. I'm sure the 840 is up to it. Boredgunner's recommendation of a top mounted PSU and extra fan on the bottom will give the cards some more air. Might have to get taller feet for the 840 for more breathing room. I've seen the prototype replacement and competitors but I just love the ATCS 840's elegant look and versatility!
