Yes it does improve ariflow too remove it, thus removing an obstacale that's lowering the space for the air too flow through. Imagine blowing at something and then placing your hand with some space inbetween your fingers, the airflow will get lower with the hand cause it's in the way just like the HDD-cage.

For improved airflow you could also try and remove the dustfilter and plastic framthingy in the front as i belive Kev-B did correct me if it was someone else who did it and posted it here

I've seen lots of people remove the plastic crosshair, and cut out the mesh in the case to open up some airflow...but I've never seen anyone remove that foam filter. You're better off keeping that in place. Just vacuum the front panel to pull the dust back out, no need to remove the foam.

I took out all that foam crap. Doesn't do much good anyway. There isn't a lot of dust in my house and what there is I'll just use compressed air to take care of.

If you used a FilterRight filter in front of the front fans, you could get rid of that foam and still have filtered air...but for me the front of my case would look ugly due to the cathode kit lighting it up. You'd see EVERYTHING under that front panel.

This filter thing has got me thinking lately about what can be used as a decent filter. Well your never gonna believe this. I'm getting ready to do some landscaping at the house. I have this stuff that you put down under rock or mulch or whatever. It's main purpose is to block weeds from growing. Well I started looking at it and...its denser then the foam crap they put in your case but will allow air to pass threw pretty easily. It is extremely cheap too. http://www.lowes.com/lowes/lkn?actio...001&lpage=none
It might be worth a try.

I just bought something like that a week ago, building a new deck and needed that for the gardens that will line the front. It's a black meshy tarp stuff, I've used it many times before but it doesn't really seem like it would allow much airflow if used as a filter. Maybe the stuff you have is different?

the only thing they didn't take into account was the fact the megahalems does amazing with 38mm thick fans, they did it with a single 25mm fan. I bet the results would favor the mega if they did it that way.
