hey guys, sorry for the noob like questions but this is one of my first "real" builds. So my question is, what is the best configuration for airflow in the 800d? I do not have water cooling, can't really afford it at the moment.

Right now I am running a 460gtx, 6gb of ram and a core i7 870. My temps are around 36c idle for my gpu and 28-34c idle for the cpu. I have the bottom fan in taking. the back fan as an exhaust and the same with the three upper fans. Any help would be great. I'm looking to upgrade my graphics to either sli or to the 580. So I just want to make sure everything is good. Look forward to your responses. Thanks.

If you want to go SLI or 580, then turn the top fans into intakes. Your temps look pretty good right now, though.

Big thanks to Corsair and CorsairGeorge for the their help. I just got a box with lots of accessories. I was just expecting a few bits and pieces but got a few of them

What would you guys recommend for the 2x140mm fans replacements in the 700D? I'm looking at:
- Prolimatech Blue Vortex 14
- Scythe Slip Steam 140
- Thermalright X-Silent 140
- Yate Loon 140
They're all under 20dBA and I think I can live with that, I'm gonna get a fan controller so it wouldn't be an issue.
So which one of those would get your vote for best noise/performance ratio?

kinda disappointed in the Yates 140mm medium, they have a high pitch to them. I prefer the stock oem ones tbh . If its the low speed ones, those might be as quiet as the Corsair ones. How many do you need btw?

As stated above I just need 2, one underneath the hard drive bays and another between the 2 compartments. I'm gonna use 5 Gentle Typhoons + 2 of these 140mm.

Sorry I missed your mentioning of 2 Im in SD too, pm if you want my two medium yates, I ended up using only one 140mm fan for my last 800D update and decided to use the quiet oem one. the blades are painted white though

Hey wermad was it difficult to disassemble the oem fans? Thinking about painting my blades white as well.
