What's yours suggestions?
Cut a big hole then put some mesh over it, or cut like 5 smaller holes so there is still some kind of grill

Nearly finished cutting the 200mm hole. Once thats done I will look at some fine mesh to cover it.

One question for H50 users, is it possbile to tie the two tubes together? They are at risk of hitting the side fan and I want them pulled back a bit. (Or I could change them so the tubes sit toward the roof)?

Hey guys. I am looking at getting this case, but does it have good airflow? And is there a good equivalent, cable management wise to this?

Hi Dale

This case, IMHO is average for air. (Depending on your set-up)

If your overclocking, be prepared to invest in good replacement fans. (My experience)

With 9 x fans fitted and a Noctua CPU push/pull cooler, my idle temps were 43c, blue screen @ 93c. (Prime 95 lasted 1 minute)

I upgraded to a H50 and removed the side panel, and temps have dropped by 11c.

Tomorrow, I will have 2 x 1850RPM Typhoons doing a push / pull on my H50 as exhaust, Enermax Clusters all over and a 200mm Big Boy blowing air into the side!

I hope to see temps 27c idle!!

Thanks for the reply Valen. 43C Idle, that is pretty bad, even with all the fans installed in the case. It seems that this case is mainly made for Water cooled systems.

Others have had lower temps on air, but it's just what happened to me.

It's an awesome case, the best I have had, but be prepared to spend a bit on quality fans. (I live in Ireland, so it's frosty here at the moment, but with a 2 month old baby, the heating is on a lot, but it's 06.45am now, no heating on and my idle is 31C as I type)

Yeh it is for watercooling, but Valen is the only person i have ever seen with such dodgy temps. Note he is also overclocked to 4ghz on air, so in other cases you wouldn't see it much lower

Im going to hunt for this case tomorrow, and see if I can find it locally before I pay a $95 shipping fee.

Worth $400 absolutely!

Wells folks, just finished my side panel mod!!

Steps taken to get it done...

1: Removing the side window was easy enough, if slightly hampered by two nuts being recessed into the window. (See pic) To remove them, I had to use a fine drill bit and drill around the nut to allow me to remove it with pointed pliers.

2: Once removed, I was able to measure out a copy of the Corsair window onto a sheet of acrylic to create a new window. (I did not want to use the original in case I wanted to use it again)

3: My next task was to measure the 200mm fan and screw mounts onto the new window. With careful use a Dremel, I created the 200mm circle.

4: To make the mounting holes for the fan, I made small pilot holes and made them bigger with the pointed 'stone' grinder from the Dremel. (I had to do this as using a bigger drill bit would crack the acrylic being so close to the 200mm edge)

5: I used a hand file to smooth out the cut circle, and then covered the edges with flex from a phono cable. (I split the wire and removed the core, but this is a temp until I recieve the U-Channel flex I am ordering)

6: To mount the fan, I used long rubber mounts. (See pic) They are very secure, and keep vibration to a minimum.

7: Before I started, I tested fan position for clearence, and it paid off. Once fitted, it was perfect! Temps went from 42C idle to 28C idle!

**See next post for more info**
