I'm very tempted to get this case except for one thing, the cooling seems to be way less than what I have currently in my case. Anyone know if I can fit 2 ap181s near the front for extra cooling?

You mean like in the link I posted right before your post?? If not, you can add one into the 5.25 bays, and have another slot open still for an ODD

EDIT: for best airflow, I would recommend cutting out the whole circle for the fans, instead of drilling out the grading. The grading really holds back a lot of airflow.

People usually set the rear and top fans as exhaust. I think you should go ahead with your plan though and see how it works first. You may find something different that still works well. If it doesn't work out it's not hard to change the directions of the fans again.

Not impressed with the hard drive cages. I broke two cages because the tabs just snapped off. My hard drives are stuck in the cages as well. I don't know why my 3.5 inch HD's are not fitting in the cages correctly. Is anyone else having this problem?

From the picture you put up, your hard drives are in backwards. I don't know if this makes much difference because I have seen other people do it that way, but the drives should be in so the cables plug in from the right side of the case, not the left.

That's bizarre. I have never heard anyone say the top grill of their case was hot for any case. I basically have two HD6970 cards in crossfire without any heat issues, my top grill does not get hot and I even have a H70 exhausting out the top of the case. Sure, it gets warm but not hot.

Well done. Love it.

Now I didn't thoroughly test it and I am new to this so I hope others might have some info that I don't know about or realize. I just checked my idle temps using CPUID hardwaremonitor. Thanks

I actually removed that portion of the top grill because I installed an H70 rad at the top, but it interfered with my RAM. In order to accommodate the H70 I had to move the entire assembly to the left by about an inch. To get the top grill to close after moving the cooling assembly I had to remove some of the ribs from the top grill, and while I was at it I removed enough for the rear fan as well. I never bothered to check the temps so I don't know how much it changed with just that one mod. I didn't do the front grill as some others have. Also, note that some people have actually cut the metal grill off of the case as well. There's a picture of that one or two pages back.

Did you drill those holes by hand? That's a pretty good job.

Thanks. Yes all by hand. I have a drill press, but it wont open far enough. Easy to do a good job if you take your time, and have the right tools. I could have done better, but realized I had distant family coming. And I had to get everything done.

Here is my small mod link.

Wow, I'm not sure why I didn't think of that. That is an incredibly easy way to do that mod. Maybe I'll get the drill out tonight.

I finally got the HDs out of the cage took about 20 minutes with my screwdriver to bend the cage. DO NOT put the drives in backwards. I should of known in the first place.

I rigged up a 3 speed antec fan were the extra drive bay is. Seems to help cool the gpu better.

I have been chipping away at the pile of parts accumulating at my desk.

I began trying to attach the SSDs to the back of the mobo tray, but I ran into two issues. First, there really isn't that much flat space where you could mount two SSDs together. Of course you could mount them in two different locations, but not what I had planned. I liked the area behind the 5.25 cages for this application. There are plenty of holes already in place to use for mounting. The second issue was clearance for the SATA power and data cables. You need some type of gap or mount it by the edge of the cage to have proper clearance to attach the cables. In the end, I didn't like how it was turning out so I went with Plan A, and just used an adapter to mount them inside the 5.25 cages. I would like to see Corsair build this feature into the next line of cases though.
With the HDD cages out of the way I could now make the 200mm rad up front push/pull. I previously just zip-tied the NZXT 200mm fan/rad to the case, I decided to just drill some mount points finally. It is pretty easy to do, as long as you remove the front bezel. Once I got the 200mm rad sandwiched and mounted, I had a pretty monstrous set up in the front. While I had the drill out I figured it was time for a proper fill port, and put one under the top mesh.
I still have to relocate my pump/res and do the mobo swap. Should also probably flush my rads while my loop is drained. I am hoping that the Crosshair does not have a crazy hot NB like my Gigabyte, if so I think with two fans on the 200mm rad running at half speed I might have the balance of temperature and sound level I am trying to achieve. I will post some pics with the latest build later.

Mount all of your drives in the 5.25" bays ftw!
