Buy the mesh side panel, worked wonders for my 6970 Crossfire setup. Nothing you are going to do on the front 200mm spot will compare.

I understand the complaint, but it's a fairly easy mod.

I'm not saying how I know this, but if you cut a pair of women's black nylon stockings and stretch it over the mesh, it acts as a fantastic dust filter.

It may, however, lead to an argument with your wife or girlfriend in which your $200 logitech harmony one remote controls is thrown across the room.

Just saying.

I'm not complaining George, not everything is perfect, and if it was, almost no one would pay the development cost via retail. I work at an engineering firm where we do development and manufacturing, believe me I go down this route daily.

The panel has been amazing, and I will buy a can of air and blow the case out when it gets dusty and benefit from the cooling effects, rather than clean the filters constantly.

I'm happy, and will be looking for more from Corsair regularly!

I finally had the choice of Add To Cart, and purchase the accessory side panel from the Corsair store today.

Just ordered mine as well. Ground shipping, so I guess I won't see it until the end of next week.

Btw I absoutely love the case too. I just orderd a TON of water cooling parts. It will be all IN case.

I've got a thread or two in watercooling that is pretty much documenting the process so if anyone wants I can post those links too. (Have an invoice included too if you want prices.)

The items shipped today. I'll keep you guys updated.

My ony concern right now is my airflow. I've got the 200mm fan on the front and will have 3x 120mm exhausting out of the top and back. (Along with the PSU pulling air from the case and out the back.)

I'm not sure there will be enough airflow so am considering the mesh side panel and/or an upgraded 200mm.

I highly suggest using the rear 120 as an intake and pulling with the 3 120's on the rad from outside the case. you will get better airflow and better temps.
