Since this referred to someone who needed more airflow in their case I don't see how it would concern you. You must be one of the few who need zero air in their cases to be pushed through their radiators so they can actually work.
What good is an internal radiator if it cannot receive a fresh, healthy dose of air to flow through the radiator so the heat may be extracted from it and your coolant?
Besides that, not everyone watercools. People that use aircooling would benefit by having two 140mm fans directed towards their videocard(s) and also have a nice flow of air over their other motherboard components. Always a good idea to help the longevity of their internal components and will also help achieve greater &/or more stable overclocks. All people that use watercooling don't always use chipset/memory/hdd and whatever other types of watercooler blocks on their motherboards. Some choose to only watercool their cpu's and vga's. Having little to no airflow to their non-watercooled components is rather ludicrous.
What about the heat that can be displaced by an airflow over the watercooling blocks themselves? Extra aircooling at the source of heat can do nothing but help lower the temp. of the fluid going through the radiator(s) so the fluid will be cooled even further.
It looks atrocious? I've seen things in this thread that I wouldn't allow my cat to see. I've never decided to semi-flame them though. The builder/modder may think it's beautiful. Whether I agree is of no concern at all.
The Obsidian 700D, 800D and the newer 800DW cases have always had terrible airflow. My suggestion is just an easy, bolt on mod to help alleviate this inherent design flaw. If you, Agenesis, don't like it, I really couldn't care less.
This little mod is for people that need extra airflow, not for people like you that need none, except the flow of air that goes through one of your ears and out the other, of course.

Damn I forgot I even recently responded to this thread.

But yeah, on to the issue of airflow of internally mounted radiators: There are honey comb vents all over the back of the case to allow air intake, and many watercooling users flip the back fan to intake if they feel it may make a difference above their already massive radiators.

I won't bother addressing the rest of your ramblings on how "terrible" the airflow on the 700/800D is, but rest assured that a $80 plexi (i dont even remember what the price was, but i remember it was overpriced) could be alternatively spent on superior aftermarket coolers such as the d14 for your cpu, or the axp for your gpu which will yield much more desirable results in the matter of temperature (while not being ugly as balls! biggrin.gif).

[QUOTE=Tator Tot;8820448]Stock Air Cooling is sub-par.

To improve it, add 2 x 120 (or 140mm) fans to the window (you'll have to mod for this.)

http://www.performance-pcs.com/catal...ducts_id=26271

So that can just mount in 3 of the 5.25 bays?

Also I do not know how to make the hole in the front of the plexiglass to make a 140mm fan do you know anyone who does?Or better yet is there a company that sells one already made?

Damm that is a pretty good job. Can I ask you how much it cost you for the case and painting?

You should consider custom watercooling for that nice case.

Every powder coat job is different so i don't really want to go into detail on price and such but if you're interested in getting something like this done the guys over at FTW PC having a group discount on white powder coating you can either email Eric or Adam

http://www.overclock.net/ftw-pc/1147...just-25-a.html

Watercooling is something i want to do but still learning on how to do it

Going to be adding this to my new rig that I am buliding.

And I think I am going to cover them with 2 these.

So what do you all think?
