Is this just the price you have to pay for quietness?

Not a 550 owner, but curious about that sound dampening material. What is it made of? When I think sound dampening I think of a sort of foam material. I find it odd that Corsair would put foam over a fan hole and expect it not to hinder performance. If you're using it as a type of dust filter, I would suggest DemciFlex filters. I have two atm, 140mm and a 480mm, and they work amazingly. Super easy to remove to clean since that are magnetic

Yeah it has some big panels with foam in them over all the fans. I don't see how they could be meant to run off or why are they there. I guess you can just leave them on unless benching or gaming.


And maybe I didn't research enough. Great case either way.

whoa dude,
if you have your H100 installed up top, you do NOT put the cover back on. It pretty much blocks ALL air flow.
If you have no fans up top, then you leave it. The side panel, if you have no fans. Leave it on. The front fans, you can leave the cover on, because they draw the air in from the sides and bottom of the front panel area.

My setup:
Fronts: 120mm x2 stock Corsair fans.
Rear: 140mm Yate Loon medium speed (the only exhaust fan)
H100: 120mm x2 Yate Loon high speed (under H100 in pull config)
Bottom: 120mm Yate Loon high speed

With that setup, my 1090t @ 4Ghz under prime load tops out at 50*c.
The loudest part of my case, are my 4890s, I dont run the side fans at all and leave the cover on. So the get warm and under my MSI Afterburner profile the fans ramp up a bit.

Take off the top cover and leave it off if your H100 is installed up there.

Lol thanks man. Didn't really make sense how it would work with the cover on but it kind of has an unfinished look with the covers off.

My gpu was heating up quite a bit. But I think I need to redo my water block. I'll be happy if its the block and not the airflow. The rad of my kuhler 920 is not actually attached to the fan I put in the front spot. Because the holes wouldn't line up perfectly.
But the rad is flush against the fan which is a blade master. I have to wait until tomorrow to mess with it again.

Thanks for the people that helped out. Lol so turns out when I put the rear panel out my pump for the gpu block was unplugged. Doh! I though it was a bad seat on the block. Anyways all is well. I just need to take the vents off to get the best temps. Loving the H100 too. Dropped temps on my cpu a decent amount from before. Heres a couple pics. Forgive my camera skills.

Wow! Looks really nice man. Really nice.
Are you not able to run a second fan on the 920 for a P/P setup for your GPU? If so, I think that would help its temps considering the front fans dont get to breath all out.
I eliminated all my HDD cages. Picked up the Xigmatek 4 in 3 HDD cage that fits up in the 5.25" bays. Plus has a 120mm fan, I have it running, doesnt get to pull alot of air. But does keep the air moving over my HDD's just fine.
Link to my post with my pics: My pics This was before I swapped out the fans too. Now with 140mm Yate Loon medium on the back and the 120mm high speeds on the H100.

Thanks a lot man and thanks for the ideas. Yours looks great too. I can definitely put a pull fan on the rad. I actually have one sitting here and meant to this morning. But when I saw the temps I didn't bother. Haven't seen it hit 50c yet biggrin.gif

I thought about ditching both hard drive bays. But I don't think the gpu rad would reach to the front floor of the case. Plus I think its a little cleaner being able to run all the sata cables back there. It was a very tight fit though getting the cable on the bottom HDD.

But I am very happy now with this case that my temp issues are sorted. I am considering putting the 120mm fan I took out of the front on the side panel. But its always a pain to run the wire on a side panel fan. I may put the pull fan on the gpu anyways to get a little better air flow overall.

You took one of the 120 out of the front? Or are you talking about the one you removed and using a different one for your 920? Like you said, I would just use that one for the pull on the 920. I think it would look awesome.

Yah I have a blade master pushing the gpu rad. I actually have another of the same fan. To keep them matching. But using the corsair fan would keep the corsair theme going.
