It would be cool if someone made a filter for a 240x240 application. Some fine aluminum mesh in a easily removable frame. Sort of like this only 240mmx240mm. It could be used on quad 480 radiators as well.

Got the 200mm rad in. The fit is again Ace-Ventura-like-a-glove style. I did make some minor adjustments to the routing as well, but not for the better. Because of the proximity of the pump to the 200 rad, I had to make a crazy silly loop to maneuver the tube into a kink free configuration, at least with the fittings I had on hand. Probably a 45 degree fittings is what I need to clean it up. I now have all fans running as exhaust except for the side panel fans. I wasn't sure how that would fly but so far with this config I am seeing the best case/mobo temps I have ever had. Of course I am going to turn my case into a dust bowl without filters but one problem at a time.
Oh and on a whim I decided to use the swiftech hydraX stuff in my loop. I made it double strength, allegedly it will last 3 years this way. So now with lime green tubing, all I need is some yellow and orange fans and I will officially have the gaudiest case on the planet

Sounds like a great idea making the side-panel intake and top/front exhaust. Let us know how those temps are.

I was wondering how people were mounting the dust filters? The screw is only long enough to go through the filter and barely make it out of the rubber grommet on the side panel... It's not enough to thread through a fan... Also, anyone have suggestions on how to mount dust filters in the spots where I won't be using a fan on the side panel (I don't plan on using all 4 fan slots...).

Which has more airflow this case or storm sniper.

Well, not exactly scientific but based on old screenshots I made when I first got the side panel and comparing temps I get today after an hour of Prime95, I can conservatively say a 10C difference in case/motherboard temperature with side panel fans as intake and all other fans as exhaust.

I know that is a ridiculous temperature change, so there may be more then one variable at work here. Considering I now have all my heat sources (except chipset) as rads bolted onto the exhaust fans themselves, this may be part of the reason for the drastic change.

Only way to tell is for some more people to give it a shot and compare the before and after temps with this set up. Any volunteers?

If I hadn't just spent the money on my wc loop, it would almost be worth the wait!

EDIT: Would look most excellent in our 600T cases!!!
Sigh, yeah, I saw them. I just purchased an H50 for my guest computer. Just figures.

Agreed.

Yes. The rad affects the fans more than the grills do. My H70 is mounted like that, using push pull. See pic below.

LOL. Ha! Maybe some some UV CCFLs? Pics pics pics......

I was entering my comment, pulled my PC out to take a picture and it unplugged the power supply and I lost my message....

I got my HD6970, and am using it as the primary card with the 6950 as the 2ndary. With the 6950 flashed to a 6970 they run identically. Both are using the fan curve from Afterburner. You wouldn't be able to tell them apart without looking for a model number. I'm doing a little benchmarking, comparison to my old crossfired HD4870s and temps with both cards. I'll likely post them in the HD69XX club sometime next week, I'm heading there now to join up. 3 day weekend in Canada so I'm going to bum around and play with my comp. I also have some work to do on my other comp. I want to fit the H50 in a micro atx case by removing the front hard drive bays and mounting the H50 at the front. I want to prepare it for painting too.

Here's a pic of the system with the 6900 cards and the NZXT 200mm front fan and the cables cleaned up a little more. If the H100 is as fat as the H70, I can't see using push/pull on it without the RAM interfering as I had to move the H70 to the left side of the case by about an inch to get the bottom fan to clear the RAM. The dust cover on my bottom fan has gotten so dirty I cannot clean it without unscrewing it and washing it (compressed air and vacuuming just doesn't get it clean). I'm going to look around for one of the dust covers I've seen with a removable/washable filter.

I have this for my H70:
http://www.performance-pcs.com/catal...ducts_id=25552

and this for my 250mm fan:
http://www.performance-pcs.com/catal...ducts_id=29206

But they increase my temp significantly when I use them.. Because of that, I don't use any additional fan filter again, I'll rather clean my rig once a month than having my daily OC break because of temp problem...
