Can anyone tell me how to take off the front section of the case? I know it's been posted in here but this thread is far too long to look for it.

You gotta push 3 tabs out on each side, be careful to not break them as they are not very strong.

After about a dozen iterations of modding the OG bay covers all the way to replacing the bay covers with plexi, I finally discovered that if I don't mind murdering my front airflow, I can fit it inside the front fan grille, so it is available when you pop it out. No modification required. If I end up sticking with this solution though I may consider opening up another part of the case for intake, as there will be minimal flow after that mod. redface.gif

Why would you take a slot load DVD drive over airflow? I have thought about a slot load DVD drive, and I was actually thinking about putting it just above the top 5 1/4" bay and cutting a slot for it, but since I can't be sure of getting a clean straight cut I gave up on it.

One thing that worries me though is that a lot of people seem to be having problems with the H100 (e.g. grinding pump noises).

From what I hear, the max safe temp for a 2500K is 73c.

My 2500K is running at 4.3GHz, and when I use both Furmark and Intel Burn Test at the same time for maximum load, my 2500K will tickle 70-73c. If you're getting 4.8 now, I would just stick with what you have.

I love the H100, but a lot of air solutions out there seem just as good. I suppose I may have just gotten a poor 2500k, but I have reseated and all, and I have had 4.7 but my temp was hitting 76c so I backed it off to 4.3.

Note I am not using the stock fans, and my fans are not as good. So, if I swapped back to stock my temps might improve by a couple of degrees. Just wanted to let you know so you don't waste $110. However, if you purchase it because you really like the form factor, it's still a great cooler.

Yeah I figured it had something to do with the tabs but I was worried to break them.

Thanks.

73c is well within the safe zone IMO. And with normal usage it won't get anywhere near what Prime95 does to it. Also tjMax is 98c so there is a ton of room to work with there. But of course everyone has to decide what temp they are comfortable with for their chip.

At 4.7 my temps touch 80c so that's why I want a better cooler. My 24/7 OC is 4.5 GHz and it peaks at ~71c.

And yeah a large part of why I want the H100 is that it's smexy biggrin.gif

I was beginning to arrive at the same conclusion before I decided to test it out first. Running at full load on prime95, my temps only increased around 2C, which was acceptable for me. I'm running my top fans as intake as well which I imagine will help. If temps become an issue, I could take a hack at modding a 120mm intake on the bottom. I've also got the 3-to-4, 5.25-to-3.5" adapter from zigmatek, which I could put in backwards (with the toolless clips removed) and throw a high CFM fan on to at the very least circulate the air more. Ultimately, I'm willing to sacrifice a few degrees for the aesthetic so long as they're still reasonable. My CPU is running at ~60C full load, and my GPU is currently at ~78C load.

Thats for that suggestion, overpower. I'm still debating on what to do. The white 600t just arrived today so I will update here what I did with some pics. I really have to admit though, I am liking the 810 Switch a whole lot more than I thought I would. Its pretty beast.

My girlfriends step dad has just given me a black and decker wizard tool (same as a dremel) is it worth taking my whole rig apart to cut out the top, front and back mesh or are the noise and airflow gains not worth it? Also do I use a heavy duty cutting disk? How hard is it to cut??
