I have this but might change it for one of these

I added an Ultra Kaze 3000 to the back of it ( I don't need the space for more drives)

UPDATE: I just ordered one and a CM 120mm blue LED 92CFM fan to replace the one in the front of the converter. I'll add a UK 3000 to the back of it as well.

Thanks for that. Those are the two I am now debating on since I can't seem to find that Scythe one listed before. I am really just going to use it for cooling, not holding drives. I will likely dremel off the Silverstone "badge" in the front if I choose that one. repped!

The reason I'm replacing the Cooler Master converter is because it has these removable plates on the side that need to be attached before sliding it into the bays. One of them came a little loose and twisted a bit which meant I couldn't remove it from my case (it was wedged in) I had to put the case on the ground and use all my weight to push it back into the case and busted my hand up. It was a nightmare I don't want to have to go through again.

Ah I see.

Just ordered this bay adapter to set up a mini wind tunnel across my mobo/ram/H70. I have been hunting for one that is black, and is easily modded if necessary, and cheap. Also picked up the replacement mesh that I will dremel to fit over the fan.

I will post pics upon completion!

I am probably going to use the 2 stock H70 corsair fans in the adapter to start.

That looks good

UPDATE:

After a bit of cutting, I managed to fit a Silverstone drive bay converter in the space where the hot swap bays were. I put a CM 90CFM fan in the front and another one on the back of it. I left the front cover off for now. If too much dust gets in I'll reattach it

Random update pics!

I installed this new bay to run an extra 120mm fan up top. Also dremeled the replacement 600T (also 650D) front mesh to fit over it. Currently running a stock Corsair fan in there, might pick up a nicer fan with blue LED to match later.

Yeesh, I also hadn't dusted out my H70 rad in 4-5 months, that was causing some higher than normal temps. With the new TIM, and more airflow up top, my temps have dropped a LOT. I was trying all I could to avoid using the mesh window insert =)

Looks great! Do you have any closer shots of the dremeled mesh? How did you mount it in the 5.25' bay. thumb.gif

Did you sleeve your cables or bought extensions? If you sleeved them yourself, how much feet total was it (assuming you did all the cables that came with the psu) to single sleeve?
