All that was answered in his actual post, lol.

Valen, did you try pantyhose as a filter? Works great for me on my HAF 932.

Temps are similar. Although, it seems that a slight increase has occured. (2c more)

Forsaken, I did try socks and stockings, but they were hard to clean and ripped a lot! In the end I got fed up!

I will see how the temps go when I get this Scythe Kama bay. (Today I hope)

Got the Scythe Kama bay fitted, and temps have dropped back to normal again. (-2C drop) 29c - 31c average idle.

But I can say without hesitation, that having a perforated side window (Like the CM Stacker 830) reduces temps drastically.

Take the side panel off you 800D if your running air, tell me what you get. :-)

So my next task, is to create a side window made of wire mesh!!

That means dropping the 2 x 120mm fans.

Back to the workshop!!

By dust you mean with a wire mesh side panel fitted? I never had dust issues with the Coolermaster Stacker case. (Except when using the 4 x fan door)

hey guys. i was thinking. for AIR COOLING some guys use the first spot up top as an intake and the back 2 as an exhaust.. well i was thinking if i get a 240 RAD and do those as exhaust on the back 2 spots for fans. and the first spot as an intake, how would that work out?

or should i just get a 360 rad and use them all as exhaust?

Never tried that config tanderson. I take it you would use the front fan as the intake?

lol aye it's a tough case to air. Although I think I am being overly fussy.

My CPU temps peak @ 55c on Prime95, which is nothing for an overclocked i7.

It's the 87c peak temps of my 2 x GTX 260's that concern me! (Even with two fans blowiing directly them)
