@Keehar

I definately got better results this way for my CPU temps...about 8-12 degrees better (core temps). Think about all the heat rising up from those smoking hot GPU's...then being sucked in by a fan. I gave both ways a 24 hour test to see a difference...and this way..on this particular board...works best for me. Take into account a few factors first though. Had to reapply TIM, i tried to be consistant, but maybe I did a better job on this particular set up. Impossible to tell. However, my VREG temps were alot better with the TRUE mounted blowing up. Besides, i did alot of reasearching on various forums on the TRUE, and most folks that have a push/pull config mount it bowing out the rear of tha case.

Just my particular take on it, results may vary

Thanks for the detailed response Mezzler.

Any chance you could take a picture of your system in the dark? If you have already, sorry for asking. If not, it would be great to see how it looks.

Thanks again.

Edit: By the way, have you applied the copper washer mod to your heatsink?

The "L" brackets you can get at any hardware store, maybe even wal-mart. I got mine at Lowes. Have them held on with a single 1/4 bolt and nut. Used rubber grommets to get better height on the Mobo tray, and rubber washers on the drive fan to eliminate vibrations.

And, here is a pic of it in a totally dark room. Will look great once i get the UV in there...hopefully soon!

The PSU exhausts out the bottom, and the bottom intake has a fan grill on it, supported by brackets. So, if you took the feet off it would be very unstable and uneven. The feeet only raise the case 1/2 inch to 3/4 inch. In order to meet your requirements, you would need to mount the PSU in the top of the case. Which would result in loosing 1 230mm top exhaust. You would also need to physically remove the bottom intake bracket. Honestly not sure if this would be an ideal situation. It is an awesome case though. And i do hope you find a way to make it work. Then of course you will HAVE to post your build!!

Welcome to the forums also!
Thank you Mezzler. i agree with your analysis,will have to come up with an alternate plan, to utilize the 840. Thanks again for the most helpful info.

what up everyone

I just got my system fully set up. I took some picture to share with you all.
But I also have some question for you guys as well; hope someone can give me a hand.

I have a scythe mugen 2 heat sink for my i7 920 (overclocked to 3.6 and already lowered my vcore to 1.15) but it still idle at 50 and when i start gaming it usually go up to mid 60s. I already did the push- pull method for it and also added all the additional fans for airflow.

What I think the problem is:
I am using the intel DX58SO board and there is a northbridge heatsink that is located beside (that blue thing) the intake fan for my Heatsink. Can that heat affect my CPU temperature? Should I replace it with other chipset cooler? any suggestion?

Do you guys think that the noctua fan are not enough for the heat sink? or the airflow is not enough?

Additional info:
My room temperature is 35C , kind of hot this few days >_<.
and i am trying to built the most silent system as I can.
