Hey quick question to somone that can answer i replaced the stock exaust fan with a 96 cfm 120 mm fan is that to high my tuniq extreme 120 only 90 cfm. now the question it seemed that having that 90+ cfm fan on the bottom the case with the stock fan in seemed to work so now im wonderin if i can put the stock fan back in and put the 120 mm on the side would that create better airflow cause it seems like im exaustin to much air... should i turn around the top 120 and have it intake then ??? im really confused lol i have the BE so 3 200 mm fans i bought a areocool 140 mm shark 95 cfm and a thremaltake 120 96 cfm 2500 rpm its not as loud as you would think im actualy suprised but it moves a **** ton of air way more then the stock exaust so i wonder if its too much exaust in the case causein bad flow... the 140 mm fan is bottom intake and i replaced the 120 oin the back with the 96cfm 120

Two Questions

First, regarding 2.5" SSD installation.

Following the instructions in the manual, it seems I am supposed to install my SSD upside down in one of the HD spots using the HDD bracket. Will this cause the SSD problems (being upside down)?

EDITED: I plug the Corsair H70s two 120mm fans into a fan power connector on the MOBO, right? In other words, I don't connect these two fans into the normal fan power connectors on the case, right?


Thanks for your help!

Sorry. My question regards where I should plug the power connectors for the H70s two fans. From the instructions, it looks like I plug the fan power connectors into a power connector on the MOBO rather than power connector wires that come with the case. Does this make sense?

Yes, use the fan splitter that came with the H70, attach the two fans to the splitter and then take the single plug, and plug it into the Fan Header marked CPU on the motherboard.

Depending on what you plan to do as far as overclocking, if the fans are too loud for your tastes, you can slow them down by attaching the resister wires to the fans, prior to connecting them to the splitter cable.

omg i hope you did better cable management than that first pic.
Thats terrible!

Take a look at my rig.
link is in my signature.

You can get a good idea of how to hide wires.
Wire conduit helps hide when they cross over to the drive bays.

Well, cooking up a 'dream' computer to build here in a few months, and ive been mulling over a new case. My current one is nice, but these new ones are designed better, and have more thinking involved in their development.

Ive had two cases on my mind.

COOLER MASTER HAF 932

and

COOLER MASTER Storm Sniper SGC-6000

They both seem fairly equal with minor differences. The HAF has caster wheels, and larger fans, but the Sniper (from what i've read) seems lighter, and has space behind the mobo for cable management. (plus its already black inside)

Ive also briefly read both "club" threads here and just from the skimming i did, i got the impression the Sniper case is a little easier to work with.

So i think im leaning toward the sniper, but just wanted to ask What (if any) pitfalls or issues people here have run into when messing with this case?

Another question, im noticing the dementions are alittle wonkey. Its showing the HAF @ 21.5" high, and the Sniper @ 21.7". Yet the Sniper is listed as a Mid tower, while the HAF, a full tower. Is the sniper really that tall?
I own both these cases if your plan on water cooling then I would go with the 932 if not the sniper is a great case. Wire management is better IMO than the 932. Also don't be fooled by the "mid-tower" this case is huge!

I have my H50 fans hooked to the fan controller on the case, that way when just surfing I turn it all the way down and when gaming or folding I crank it back up, that way I don't have to worry about overloading the MB headers.

I only see a fan power connector in the case for one of the 120mm fans for the H70 and not for both fans.
