Just ordered the case

 

I will be air cooling for a while but may go wter cooling in 2013

 

I hope the case is not BAD for air cooling in general.

 

I would hate to see increased temperatures after switching to this case.

Utilize the top panel as an intake with good airflow fans and one 140mm as an exhaust at the moment. Sure it can provide good results. smile.gif

I unfortunately cant do that because I have a H80 CPU cooler with push/pull configuration.

 

I install it on the rear fan spot in my current case.

 

Or maybe should i install it on top this time so I can do what you are saying?

 

Interesting.

 

Edit

 

 

The question is can i install the H80's radiator on top? would it be a ncie setup?

oh, I thought you were on air cooling. H80 is still considered liquid cooling. doh.gif

Okay, since you have an h80 mounted at the rear, do a push pull config on that spot. The rest would be intake(top and bottom). Sure its going to be a dust magnet but you can minimize it by using filters or put your rig on your desk or clean it regularly. smile.gif

thank you

 

so i should basically do what i did on the picture?

 

H80 radiator goes on top 2 other fans go there as well. ALL are intake

 

bottom intake

 

rear exhaust

 

I have a 110 cfm 140mm fan that I can put on rear.

 

 

 

Edit :

 

Here is what I am thinking

 

I will replace all the bottom 140mm fans with Noctua NF-P14 fans

I already have 2 NF P-12 fans for my H80 radiator and i will install it on the top

I will also purchase 2 more Noctua NF P-12 fans and put them on top.

 

ALL of these will be intake

 

I will than purchase another 140mm Noctua NF P 14 and put it on rear as exhaust

 

I am guessing that this setup will be silent and effective?

 

or instead of all Noctua fans, i might go with Akasa Viper as 120mm Akasa's clear 80+ CFM and 140mm Akasas clear 110 cfm.

I've just bought myself a brand new 650D from eBay. £120 including shipping biggrin.gif

From the videos i've seen on youtube of this case, it uses standard USB3 connectors instead of a header for the USB3 ports. Is anyone using an adapter to convert them to the USB3 header and if so which one?
