Oh, yeah. I guess I said I'd rep if I received help but I don't make threads then go off saying "rep will be awarded to those who help me". But yeah...you're right

Ok, I'm a trained engineer. I can make a steel girder bridge, I can make a timber trestle bridge from cutting down trees and I can make just about anything into a square, whether it's meant to or not!
However, while I do understand a lot about case airflow I just did something that is not in the grand design of this case.

Air is supposed to come in from the bottom front, from the bottom where the PSU is and from the front of the case in general. If you so desire, you can also make it come in from the side panel.
It's supposed to go out the rear and the top. Anyone disagree, let me know. I couldn't fit an air cooler that was adequate enough in the case on this expensive motherboard so I put in an H50 cooler.
Now, air comes in the bottom front, if the bottom grid and the PSU is pretty self contained it goes in the bottom and out it's own back, it's got a rubber seal around it, so it doesn't leak. Here's the problem, the coolest way to mount the H50 is so the air come in the back of the case through the radiator, so I took that fan that came with the case and hung it in the front, until I get one of those acrylic supports. That fan now blows out the front.
So I have air coming in bottom front, top rear and through the grids next to the PCI cards right. Air exhausts out the front and top. So, my problem is, which way should the fans in the window point? To my engineering brain it seems the bottom should blow in and the top out. That also doesn't make sense because I'm blowing out air that just came in through the bottom. Is this right or do I have tired brain syndrome from routing all these cables and stuff?
I hope Enigma comes on tonight, he's good at this air stuff.

Ok. Like I said, ignore me. If the moderator would please remove that post I'd be greatful. There's just a lot of new folks that don't even know what that button is.

Does it really matter whether or not you get a Rep+ point? I mean, seriously: does it make any difference?

No no, turn that fan around. Don't listen to Corsair. That is only a general recommendation. If you have a fan in the top side panel vent, it will feed outside air directly to the rad. Also, a fan shroud will greatly improve the air flow over the rad and lower your temps.

Apparently it does because you can neither trade nor sell on the trading thread unless you have a rep of 35 or more. I haven't been here for as many years as you have. I haven't posted as many times as you post.This must be your career?
I also don't pay for an account like you do so I don't expect to be able to tell people what to do. I just show up when I have time and help out (voluntarily) when people ask for help about this case. You don't show that you have now, nor ever have had this case or even have ever posted on this board until somehow by magic you see my post about rep up and here you are. Do you get notices of TOS violations if someone posts them when you pay for an account?
I know everyone else that posts here either has this case or is planning on getting one, even K10 is familiar to me and his case is on the first page. I searched for your posts though and you've never been here before. So before you go kicking me out of Overclock.net like an AOL flunky that gets a free account for enforcing a 30 page TOS that's only understandable to Lawyers, please tell us how you suddenly came to this board.

TIA,
BriSleep, here, there, everywhere I sign on I'm still BriSleep, it means something.

Before I get kicked off overclock.net tonight I wish to thank you dkev for helping me out on this. You've been of help to me before and once again you're one of those there when I needed you most.

NP dude. I recommend asking H50 questions over in the water cooling section. H50 club pretty much dominates over there. There are a lot of guys that can answer your questions.

I didn't pay for this account. Everyone gets a free Overclocked Account on their 1-year Anniversary.

But regardless: would you rather hear it from me, or a staff member who would probably give you an infraction at the same time?? That's why I'm telling you instead of reporting you. I know better than to be a jerk like that.

I was watching OCN Live, and I decided to post instead of using the Report Post button. Would you have rather I be a jerk and use it so that you can get an infraction, or would you rather me tell you so that you know?

And for the record: there is no rule or law that stats that I cannot post in this thread just because I don't own this case. I'm a member of the Cooler Master 690 Club and guess what: we have a few regulars in there who don't own the 690, nor do they ever intend to buy it. They just like the people. Is there something wrong with that?

Oh, and one more thing: this isn't your thread (you are acting as though it's yours).

Wow. If I had known you were so sensitive, then I would have just used the Report Post button and moved on.

But for the record: I don't have those authoritative powers. I am just doing you the very same favor that people have done for me in the past.

Anyway, I really wish you would just relax. You are overreacting to this in a rather extreme way.
