Thanks for the input I didn't think about mounting the top fans in the outside of the case, I might try that later. About the SSDs , I think it's a great idea, so I would be able to install a better 180-200 mm fan in the front.

I have a love/hate relationship with this case. Love the looks but hate the temps. And yet I don't have the heart to carve up its beautiful face. I keep wanting to some how enhance the cooling (hoe into a housewife).

I am waiting on the 990FX boards to be available in the US before I do any major changes, but I think I have a few minor experiments to try. I am going to get rid of the HDD cages like many have done. I wanted to try mounting the SSDs behind the motherboard tray, I have seen this on many high end cases and it should only take the right sized drill bit and screws to secure. Next experiment is to do push/pull on a 200mm rad I have mounted in the front fan area. If I move the HDD cages I can make it all fit.

That Sabertooth board looks good for monitoring temps!
Thanks for the comments I'm in the same boat as you, it's a love/hate relationship also for me : I love its look and awesome cable management, but the stock cooling isn't just good enough for my needs ( and I plan to 1/ chnage my graphic card for a GTX 590 /2 or buy another GTX 580 ). And I don't want to modify it without being able to put it back to stock, since I will be able to sell it for a good price here. That case is a real puzzle when it comes to find a good cooling solution for the front, haha

Go look at the Corsair forums. There is a problem with the SandForce Firmware. This is across all brands that utilize the SandForce 22xx SATA III controller. Mine is working for now, posted a little blog of what I did in the Corsair forum. Seems they are getting a lot of BSOD's and the drives just flat out disappearing in the BIOS. That is what happened to me, ALL of my drives disappeared. I was able to go in and get everything working though. I've been stable for 48 hours so far with only 1 freezeup.

Thanks for the info. Disregard my PM, I was being impatient.

What are you using to test ? I haven't run anything yet. I just finished with a fresh install about an hour ago.

Right now just Atto Disk Benchmark. That is what Corsair recommends. It's not the best but it does work.

Ill give it a shot tomorrow. It's pretty late here and I just shut off the computer for the second time.

What do you think of the black/blue sleeves? Looking forward to seeing yours and seeing how they differ.

Sleeves look great! I meant to say something earlier and got distracted...



After 72 hours of running stable, my Force 3 ssd finally gave up the ghost. Hope SandForce gets the new firmware out soon!

Hey all, I know a bunch of people have expressed interest in a WC set up for their 600T, and many people wind up getting a EK GPU block. For those of you who don't check the WC sub forum regularly, steer clear of any Nickel plated EK water blocks. Looks like they have a QC problem and the official EK response/remedy is rubbing some people the wrong way. Just a heads up.
