do you guys know if having side fans installed on this case would affect a push/pull configuration? or is it just like most others where the top side fan will need to be removed?

I tried a fan on the door as an intake but it didn't seem to do anything. Any recommendations on getting good airflow in this case??
Two side fans help immensely with NB temps. Have you tried more than one?

I found that having both side fans installed eliminated the need for having the push/pull set up to intake air; I set it up to exhaust instead. The side fans brought in enough cool air to negate any of the ill effects of having warm case air travel through the radiator, and actually lowered my temps by about 2-4 degrees C. The exception to this may be if you were running two hot cards, such as the Radeon 4870. I still recommend the push/pull setup regardless.

Two things that can be done. The 140 fan at the bottom is the right size but it is too damned slow and you need to put a stronger fan. Also cut out the metal grill in front of the case with some side cutters to add air flow.

Also the blow hole at the top should always be used in any Case over the back exhaust fan. Heat naturally rises.

Now one more thing. A lot of guys add a 120 mm fan under the DVD Drive to add more ventilation to the north bridge and the CPU. The video card can break the flow of air in the case so, Lots of guys were doing that when the case first came out and now you new guys are rediscovering what we did earlier. Its Normal.

Ohh taking the fan from the bottom is a bear. Take out the fan to the back of the case. it will not squeeze thru the front drive bay.

Ok thanks, I did put a fan in the 5.25' bay. I just screwed it to those pop out things you pull out when you install a drive.

Just went out and bought an antec spot cool. Not really doing anything. It almost seems like I messed up the contact on the NB heatsink messing with the motherboard. The airflow in the case seems fine. Cool air is coming out of the back. I will probably flip the heatsink to blow out of the top.

I guess I need to remove NB heatsink and check contact, thanks for the pics again. I like that sheet metal idea to put the extra fan in the 5.25' bay. I wonder where I could score some of that.

thanks, but just to be clear.. so none of the side fans will block a push/pull configuration setup as the rear exhaust/intake (im currently on exhaust) right? and i guess while im at it, would it make a difference if i setup the push/pull as the rear or top?

on my current case, i had to remove one of my side fans because it blocked the two fans i had in push/pull in the rear.

Yes.. I have a picture I will show you let me get it.



What you do is take a ruler and draw two straight lines that you will use to line up the wheels and make them straight. Then drill the small holes and mount the wheel with the screws that come with the Lian Li Wheels. add the locking Mech. on the front for easier use.
