I cut out that mesh on mine looooong time ago. Seemed too restricting.

I realy would like this case. Its an amaizing case with great looks and cable management but it sucks that a 5870 wont fit without having to do some mods
1. You'll need to derivet if you're gonna completely remove it. Depending on your mobo's orientation you may not even have to remove the hard drive cage.

2. Both the V8 and Mugen 2 are NOT compatible with socket 1156 motherboards so you'll have to get something that is.

These are the only ones that they have on newegg.

They'll PROBABLY come out with a 1156 bracket for the Mugen 2 later on if they haven't already though.

EDIT: Also, you can try getting a Prolimatech Mega Shadow. They're really nice but also really expensive. It's the best CPU HSF.

http://www.crazypc.com/products/mega-shadow-508603.html Out of stock here but you get the idea.

The HDD cage is riveted, and you won't find a 140mm that will outperform the 120mm Cooler Master R4's rating of 90cfm @ 19dB. You may find a 140mm that pushes over 90cfm of air, but it will come at the cost of sound...meaning it will sound like a Boeing taking off every time you boot up your computer. The best air versus sound ratio can be found with that R4, for under ten dollars before shipping.

The R4 stats are wrong. They're actually 19db - 61 CFM, 23db 90 CFM or something. There are a bunch of threads about it. I know for a fact they're not 19db because my Xigmatek fans are rated at 21db I think and they're much quieter.

Oh, and you can get em for $9.99 on amazon with free shipping if you order $25(or more) worth of stuff.

That's still good ratings for those fans, and you'd still be hard-pressed to find something with a better airflow/noise ratio.

If you look at the packaging for the R4 series fans, the packaging itself differs between, for example, the blue and the red. The red has an advertised rating for 90cfm@19dB but the blue has an advertised rating of the 61.3cfm@19dB. I'm not sure why CM released the "R4" with several variations.

It looks so much better without the grill...I can see the dust building up on the front of mine as well

They should have made it removable, so we could have replaced them when we wanted or removed it completely

But good job on yours

Man...my luck has sucked as of late. I measured my 120mm fan bracket and double checked that everything was right but I just finished cutting/painting it and I just brought it in and the screw holes don't match up with the case OR the fan. I guess I'll fix it later. Did some other stuff today too. False floor came out good. I painted it but didn't take any pics.



















Oh, and I take terrible pictures because the screen on my sister's camera doesn't work and there's no viewfinder so I just have to guess what'll be in frame when I take the pics.
