Thanks Draggin and jgarcia. I was curious about airflow even before Hambone07si wrote, but I've seen more people than just you two that also says it's a decent/good airflow in it if you just doing it right with the fans etc. That's why I wonder how to place the fans for best airflow/cooling

Found some on the net about it, here's two posts I found pretty handy:

I'm aware that one of them are for 800D but I think the fan setup will work on 700D also? What do you think of them and which setup do you think will be the best? I'm thinking of using GTX470 SLI, so maybe the GPU's will be pretty warm or will it work? The motherboard I'm choosing got 2 slots between the PCI-E slots so there will be plenty of space between the cards.

Ok. For small overclocks its cool on air. But throw in a couple 470/480's and it gets warm. Cases with 2 front intake fans or similar are much better. Heavy overclocking on air with 2 or 3 cards gets hot. The case is awesome. I just think it's geared towards water.

You have room to add two front intake fans using four 5 inch bays..

I have heard really good results about this. They say that the finish is really close.

Well.....like I said, I was "thinking" about it I haven't had the time really and my psu wiring happens to tuck in there really nice. No messes that I have to hide......yet!

It should be easy enough and if it doesn't look good, I can always peel it off. Besides, my window is modded and I can always get another (cheap) piece of acrylic to replace.

Thinking of making the jump to the 800d but, I had a question and asking it elsewhere didn't net me any worthy advice so, apologies if this is unwanted.

Just upgraded my rig and debating cooling my motherboard as well as the CPU / SLI480's so, I was thinking...Can the 800d fit a quad rad in the top?

Dimensionally, I know it fits but, what kind of room is there etc?

Thanks much!

Yes you can, you will need to mod the top to install a new rad grill but from the looks of it, it doesn't seem too bad. I'm sure there was a pic of a set up like that in this thread.

For my 800D, I went with modding the bottom and fitting a 240 rad there. I have my CPU, mobo, and 2x5870 on the loop and the 360 and 240 is sufficient in cooling all of it with low rpm fans. So this is another option to explore.

Yeah, I really want to stay away from the dual loop scenario as the pressure from the 655 is enough to more than handle 1 loop of that magnitude but, good idea none-the-less.

I'm not opposed to some slight modding and a little dremeling but, not really looking for another project like my current HAF was...

Thanks for the response

this case is awesome
i just wish it had better stock fans
just so u guys know the hotswap door is reversible
since i put my tower on the right and the door opens left it doesn't make much sense imo
so i reversed it
just be careful taking it off and putting it back on

would u guys recommend putting the scythe kama bay plus in the top 3 slots or the bottom 3 slots?

I seriously doubt the kama bay offers any significance difference in temps.

Think about it, you can already mount 3 fans at the top directly below your heatsink, and theres a fan less than few inches away from your gpu...whats the karma bay going to offer?

Add a pcie exhaust and be amazed
