Thanks for the reply. Yeah I figured SP's would be better at least where the HD cages are. So you have 4 fans as intake on the bottom? Curious as to why the back 140 would be an intake?

Question on the 900D hot swap bays..... I am going to use just three drives to start, a pair of SSDs in RAID 0 for boot and OS and a 1 Tb Raptor for data. I am considering using the hot swap HDD bay. I do not intend to hot swap these drives but the advantage is that I will have two less power cables to run. The power and signal cables that come attached to the 900D hot swap cage look to be of good quality.
The disadvantage is that the more connections and plugs/sockets you put in line the higher the resistance. I really do not think that will be a factor however.
Have any of you done this? Are any of you using the hot swap bay at all and if so have you had any reliability issues?
Thanks.

Finally got my loop in. Problem is I bought a Swiftech Komodo HD 7950 for my Sapphire card only to discover that my card has a 7970 PCB. I've arranged a swap but that means draining the loop to finish...bummer. Can't wait tho it all looks pretty good for my first attempt.

I use the hot swap bay for my Intel SSD and my 2 TB WD Black. I have not had issues with them at all. Its actually convenient to use the hot swap bay.

mpoffo - I just read an article in CPU I think and the corsair cooler actually had slightly cooler temps when used as an exhaust. I could only think that it flowed more air because of a positive pressure in the case? Anyway SP fans are designed mainly for radiators. I don't personally think the restriction of the drive bays justify their use. I would use AF fans in the front unless your putting a Rad there. If you put fans in the bottom as intakes the rear would still be better as an exhaust. the layout you showed looks Ideal. If you really want to get stupid? put 3more fans on the back side of the bottom. Good luck

Looking for some feedback. Current plan is to mount 2 480s on the bottom, one on top and moving the power supply where the drive bay brackets as followed:




Or should i run a 360 on top to allow for the power supply to vent in the first 120 slot, with a fan to assist?

psu in bay area, takes me back to my old 800D. Even the biggest and hottest gpu setup won't need that much. Get a 240 for the bottom along w/ that 480 (down there). IF you're psu is small enough, you can squeeze in a 360.

I'm not using the mounts but I do have a 360 and a 480 down there but its uber tight w/ the Enermax psu I have now.

Most ppl put in a 240 down there.

Thanks for the advice,ya its overkill, but that's what this site is all about tongue.gif

I was just figuring that if I ran 2 480's on the bottom, with a mid-plate, I could create a balanced wind tunnel effect with push/pull set up, without the PSU to interfere on the back side. The gain is probably minor at best, would love some feed back on the idea
