Of course, easy solution is to put some exhaust fans on the mesh side panel. However, I'd like to show off the goods. What have other folks in my type of situation done? Go with a custom acrylic side panel with 1 or 2 fan mounts?
Anyone have some input?

Well rads work better with intake fans, doesn't really matter where they are mounted.

It better to test it yourself. I would try just having the rear 120 as exhaust. You might be right, or it could perform well enough to leave it that way. If your chipset is too hot or the gpu starts to get bakey, make the top 120s as exhaust. Another option, if the Gpus start to get too hot, think about installing an internal 120mm fan to help boost the 200mm flow towards the gpu.

I swear to almighty, its like one step forward and two steps back or tempting fate or something. I took CorsairGeorge up on his kind offer to drop him an email so he can smooth out my RMA dilemmas. (RMA HX1050 PSU and H100) I had told him in this thread that my case fan controller was on the way out which was a big problem as I am relying on the case controller for the H100 till RMA because the H100 controller is bust. Before emailing him I tested the H100 fan that was needing a push start. Turns out it wasn't spinning up connected to a mobo fan header either. and when reconnected to a case output it now wasn't spinning at all. ie dead. So when I emailed I felt I should inform him that the case fan controller was not dead after all, it was a dead fan. (Now running H100 on one fan!) The rear case fan connected to this output worked.

Well, after sending off the email, guess what. That case fan output has since infact died after all. No fan works on it.

In other news....Got my replacement MSI GTX580 Twin Frozr II today. This wasn't an RMA but moving the SLI purchase forward to ensure I had a card this week for BF3. I had a feeling the 100ºc temps on the first dud card was down to bad TIM and that some ICY diamond would sort it. In otherwords when the new card and TIM arrived today I'd know I had a good GTX580 no matter what, if the TIM worked, I'd have two good cards by the afternoon. If the TIM didn't work I'd start the card RMA tomorrow while still having at least 1 GTX580 for BF3.

Goodnews is the new card is perfect. 65º load on the 1080p Furmark benchmark where the dud card was hitting 100º. Bad news is the dud card with TIM replaced now hits 105º and causes a reboot. I was especially sure badly applied OEM TIM was the problem when I took the heatsink off and saw this...



So imagine my surprise when a 6mm pea of ICY Diamond 24 carat made things worse!! whats so strange is the card still idels as it did from the beginning at exactly the same temp as the new card. ie about 35ºc. Whereas on load in furmark the new card creeps up to about 65º by the end of the test and the old card races up to 100º after about 15 seconds.


So I'll RMA this dud card but at least I now know that with the addition of the NZXT 166cfm 200m and drive bay mounted 120mm that are on their way I should not need any of the wacky cooling/ducting mods I had planned. I put the dud back in and SLI'd them up for a quick Heaven test. Even with another card below it and no rear exhaust (put that on the H100 for the time being) and with the crappy OEM 200mm up front(NXZT due Thursday) the top 'new' card only hit 66º by the time the bottom card hit 105 and caused a reboot.

So once I have a working second card, a working H100, a silent HX1050, a new fan controller, well maybe then I'll actually have the nice computer I thought I'd have weeks ago when I bought it.


So yeah, at least got a 'good' GTX580 for BF3 on Friday, but will my remaining H100fan and 600t fan controller last that long!!

Thanks, I would like to get rid of the external rad. Change the top rad to a 360, and move the 240 to the front of the case. Bring everything inside for a better look. Hopefully

Wow I basically just went through everything you were asking about. I mounted a Black Ice GT Stealth in the top, and mounted an EK 240 externally. I originally had two fans on top of the Black Ice 240 pushing air into the case, the front 200mm as an intake, and I had a full acrylic window from MNPCTECH with two 120mm fans as intake. I had NO 120mm exhaust on the rear, because the Koolance rad bracket was in the way. BAD IDEA, the case turned into an oven. So moved onto 2nd scenario. Changed top fans around, pulling air through the rad as exhaust, left from 200mm and side 120mm's as intake. Temps were OK, ehh really, I knew they could be better. The Black Ice rad definitely performs better with fans pushing air through it. SO, moved onto a 3rd scenario. Turned fans around again on the top 240 rad, pushing air through the rad and into the case, left the front 200mm as an intake, and then turned the 120mm fans around in the acrylic side panel making them exhaust. That turned out the be the ideal solution in my case. Temps were way better on the CPU, and it also helped temps on the GPU as they left the 1st rad and entered the 2nd rad before going through my 570's. Hope that all makes sense, any questions just let me know

Do you think you have enough room to fit a 120mm fan in the rear exhaust ?
post #4070 of 18196
I just got my 600T (Pictures coming soon!) , but I noticed that when I put my computer to sleep mode, the power LED flashes on/off and it's driving me nuts. Is there a way to change this ?
