Here is a diagram of my airflow as of now. Typical Nine Hundred Two case, but for those who aren't familiar with it I did the diagram to make it as simple as possible.



Whata think? Keep it in the current configuration? My main concern is the 200mm fan alone isn't enough alone to exhaust the heat out of the PC.
Hey mate looking good, i'd have the h-50 pull cold air from the back into the case and out the top, but the side fan is a good idea too..

Kinda like this




and by the way, having the 12vatx cable running over your mobo and between your gpu isn't the best idea, try running it behind the mobo or orund the side!!

Yeah I know. As you can see most all the other cables are ran behind the mobo on the other side of the case and back out where they need to be. That 12vatx cable just isn't long enough to where it needs to go. About an inch more and I probably could have pulled it off. It was driving my OCD nuts just seeing it strewn across the top over the cards.

I have mine set up as a front intake, just to keep the front fan airflow uniform. It only takes minor modification of the stock Antec fan mount to use it with a radiator. Similar to what has been posted with the bay rafter modification.

But either rear or front intake would be acceptable...

Indeed, thats the kinda thing that would drive me up the wall too, is the 900 case a full-tower or mid? I'm thinking i need a full tower to maximize the airflow, but i'm good for a few weeks.

So yeah, try the H-50 set up as an intake and leave everything else, maybe one of the front fans as an exhaust, i'm sure you've prob tried the majority of solutions? and short of running the cable physically under the mobo (between the mobo and riser plate) there's always an extension chord? where you'd source one is beyond me but i'm more than sure there is such a thing..

But looking good man, keep it up

Having the radiator up front would have been nice, but there is that giant 5870 sticking its butt where optional 3rd front intake fan mount is placed.

I switched my radiator push/pull to intake instead, I'll go the day and monitor how that works out.

So hard sometimes to monitor temps. This morning I was idling at 33c (i5 @ 3.5) now in the afternoon as the radiant air temp has risen (nice day out!!) I'm up at 37c idle.

It's a mid tower. I'd love a full tower for the room, but it's just not worth it to me. I'm 33 and have been taking apart and building these darn things since I was 17 and everytime I see a full tower I'm turned off by the size of it. Just too big for my tastes.

That shouldn't make much of a difference in fitment. I have my radiator all the way up front where the the GPU doesn't reach. I have a pic of it at home, if I have time tonight I'll post it.

Anyway, you should be good just running it as an intake now...

Lots of solutions for short cables out there. Cable extensions work well.
Here's a quick list of different types
