Ok guys question. I'm really considereing getting the 650d.

I found this "guide" as I am using this exact mobo and the h100. And those are the fans I was wanting to get Although I will use 140mm's for the very top, not 120mm's like he did. . I will be using low profile ram, not sure if this guy did.

http://forum.corsair.com/v2/showthread.php?t=107819

My only question is do you have to do the back fan as intake for this to work? I don't see it being an issue but want to make sure.

Also the front 200mm fan, could two 140mm fans fit up there instead? Really not a fan of 200mm fans. Rather go with a 140mm for the rear fan as well if possible

Hi case gurus. I'm eyeballing a 550D pretty hard. I really like the look and cable management features. Is it as quiet as it seems ? I'd love some thoughts on it or a similarly priced mid tower with cable management and noise being my primary concerns. Air cooled, h80 cooler and 4 gt ap-15s need to fit. Any suggestions ?

Hey Trelga, it's not recommended to have the rear 120mm fan as an intake fan as GPU's generally tend to exhaust out towards the back, as do some PSU's. I have the H100 fans set up exhausting out the top and the 120mm out the back and it's fine.

I swapped out the 200mm front intake fan from the 650D cause that thing was 747 loud! I now have a Bitfenix Spectre Pro instead, which just barely fits. I would've liked a better 200mm but because there is only just about 25mm spacing, a 200mm x 30mm fan was out of the question if you wish to have both hard drive cages in their stock positions.

As for 140mm instead of 200mm. I guess with some light modding to the mesh of the front panel you could fit a 140mm in. I doubt two would be an easy fix though.

rear 120mm fan

rear 120mm fan

rear 120mm fan

My reaction: " F*** I ORDERED A 140MM RADIATOR AND 140MM FANS "

Then I remembered this thread wasn't only about the 800d.

As for 140mm instead of 200mm. I guess with some light modding to the mesh of the front panel you could fit a 140mm in. I doubt two would be an easy fix though.

Actually, you can install a 30mm fan. I had a 200mm x 30mm 166 cfm NZXT fan installed in my 600T, which has the same measurements at the front and the same drive cages as the 650D. It requires you to cut the curl off of the drive cage in the front left corner, both if you need both cages. Once you do that, a 30mm thick fan will fit in with the same snugness as the Spectre Pro fits with unmodified cages. Unfortunately, I don't think the screw holes line up though (I have the original 600T with the brackets instead of screw holes). I got the top two to line up in the mesh, and I just let the bottom of the drive cage hold the bottom of the fan against the mesh. Incidentally, in this particular revision of t he 600T, the SP 200mm doesn't fit either since there are no screw holes. I lined up the top holes with the mesh as I did with the NZXT, and I used cable ties on the bottom going through the bracket holes.

I just installed a Spectre Pro because it's a little quieter. Now that I've been using it, it is really not even close to as good as the NZXT fan was at full speed, but it is way quieter. (The NZXT fan was so strong at full speed, if I slowly moved the front dust cover closer and closer to the case, at about an inch the pressure from the fan would suck the dust cover closed).

I read that wrong the first time, I interpreted it as a 30mm fan. I thought to myself, what? wth.gif The front panel really is a nuisance sometimes. I probably should have clarified the Bitfenix is the nicest fit without modifications smile.gif That NZXT fan sounds like a beast. I have never used NZXT fans, only had a feel around a case and some flex LED strips awhile back. 166 cfm though? Even if it is bloated by the manufacturer that's still pretty good, at the expense of silence wink.gif I went from a Bitfenix Spectre to a Spectre Pro, and there is a noticeable difference between the Pro revision. But in all honesty. Those stock 200mm Corsair fans were awfully loud.

I'm getting ready to order a new solid side panel and some acrylic for my 700D to cut a custom window but I'm trying to decide if I should go with a clear window or smoked grey. I have an 800D panel with the clear window and it looks nice, but it gets a bit bright when I have all the case lighting turned on. Any thoughts?
