Doing it this way, did it make your temps better or worse? I can't imagine that having a gap between the mesh and fan makes an improvement in temps because it seems like it would get less fresh outside case air, and recirculate some of the inside case air. But if all you wanted is less noise you got that. I am just curious as i really want to cut the mesh i am just not wanting to take the system all apart right now.

i can barely hear my front fan so it doesn't bother me. but if you want to cut the mesh, i just used wire cutters on my top mesh and it worked great and i didn't have to take anything out because it didn't make any scraps or dust. unless you are going to cut it for two 120's then you would need a dremel or jigsaw

There are multiple pics and comments on this in the thread. I know it's long, but that's how it is.

Yeah, you can. It all depends on your motherboard. If my RAM was 1/4" lower, I would have push/pull right now. If you look through the thread, you'll find one guy who actually trimmed the DRAM socket AND the actual DIMM to fit push/pull. Lots of people have used the offset method (even though it does obscure a bit of the rad or fans, or cause them to miss-align a bit).

How's this:

http://www.overclock.net/t/831636/official-corsair-graphite-club/2630#post_14528585

That was my push/pull H100 build in the 600T with the rad and one set of fans inside the case. No problems putting the top mesh on. I did have to mod the case, but everything fit inside. If you can find a motherboard with the memory mounted down slightly, you could also do this. I actually thought about trimming the blades and case of a fan to get it to fit but I thought it would just end up being a noisy fan.

If people start looking through the thread from that point on, they will find some off-set builds.

Man that's a tight fit. Unfortunately, I can't even do that because the DIMM socket on my board also hits the fan. I'll look at it a little more closely next time I have it apart though. Nice job.

Agree. The H100 rad is too thin to benefit much from p/p.

You can also add rubber washers between the fan and the case to reduce the noise without removing the mesh. Next time I do a major overhaul of my system I think I'm going to remove the mesh too.

There's no measurable difference in temps.
