Just an Update for those who want custom or no window in the 800D you can pick up a new blank side panel and extra hot swap bays from the Corsair online store.

if you put a 360 rad up top, will it be an exhaist or intake?

I read and watched on you tube by making the back fan an intake and the bottom an intake, and using the top as an exhaust it made a big difference on heat issue

Yes, it does make a big difference. However, if you're air-cooling, most heatsinks blow to the back of the case. In that scenario, you're shooting yourself in the foot.

I have mine set up that way as well. It doesn't quite solve the HDD airflow problem though. I'm dreaming of adding another fan to the PSU area just above the dust filter, but there isn't a 140mm fan on the market that has decent specs much better than corsair's stock fans. I'm looking for one which would completely turn that region into positive pressure.

well I have the Dark Knight heat sink and since I have an AMD the heat sink runs horizontal so I put the heat sink fan on the bottom side so it blows upwards

Yes, that will work fine

Well, I didn't like any 140mm either. I went with a YL high speed at first but found I needed more. So I added a 120mmx38mm 133cfm Panaflo. Helped my hd area and then added the YL on top of the pre-installed 140mm from Corsair blowing up towards the mb region.

Helped my temps all around. But I also have 3 YL high speed 120mm's up top as exhaust, so I know I still have negative pressure as my set up. Which isn't good but temps are fine so I'm not worried.

I absolutely love this case now. I have a few things on my mind to do with it, but not anything major.

And yes, this case was thought of for the w/c community, if you're not yet you soon will be.

Already starting to piece me up a setup.

Oh yeah I totally agree with you. Changing stock fans will give you better air flow also your right on the watercooling. I never taught I would watercool one day but I am. This site is very addictive and the bank hates it
Well So far I love this case and I'm sure Corsair will only improve upon this case. 3 way SLI or CFX is easily done in this case, with watercooling setup
