If you moved your bottom fan even lower you did cut away the metal mesh and then some more right? Putting two fans in front means you want optimal air cooling correct? DD and I didn't do anything more then what should be expected smile.gif I had to cut my mesh away and the sides of the 5.25 bay so my fan would not hit it. I did not move a fan down though. Good idea though that way the top of the fan will not be hitting anything and you wont really notice the fan controller. My Fan controller had burnt out so I just sheared off what was needed to install the RAD. Looks nice though and the USB ports still work so that all I needed it for. I control my fan speed via MOBO AI SUITE.

Oh okay, A mesh will most likely help quite a bit but it looks so damn ugly in comparison to the window ):

I think the SP series will work just fine for the sidepanel. The SP ones move quite a fair bit of air.

Yeah they do, its just that they are designed for radiators in mind. I can go out and get 2 x AF120 fans if needed. I need to see if i can find something thats molex too as i have run out of connectors!

I know i really dont like the look of the side mesh, i really like being able to see in. I wish there was a comprimise, half window half fan mesh or maybe even just a way of mounting to the side window. I guess modding it would be the only way!

The soundproofing was a waste of money to be honest, it was also a nightmare to cut to the correct shape on the side panels.

I'm well aware of their designed purpose, but they still works more than fine as case fans. Maybe not optimal but they work.

TO THE WORK BENCH!


I can imagine... gave up that idea quite fast. It just didn't seem to improve much and way to much of a hassle AS WELL as it making the inside look uglier.

Also I'm more than happy of my soundlevels at the moment after I found the Be Quiet Silentwings2 fans! biggrin.gif They are bloody amazing.

In your case i wouldn't bother smile.gif

I love my build, i just need to get my top card running within safe temperatures whilst retaining the look i want. I really dont want to get rid of the side panel if i don't have to as it was one of the main reasons i chose the case redface.gif

I feel ya! I'm much of a temperature freak myself. I went crazy when my 680 went to 35 idle after I installed my sound card. Have been obsessed with improving airflow since and now I'm back to around 30 biggrin.gif Your temperature issues are much more warranted though...

Also, the sidewindow is such a huge part of the look of the case. Plus, that much work that has gone into your interior it feels like a shame to cover that stuff up with a mesh ):

Exactly how i feel about it.

What would be an acceptable temperature of a GTX 670 in SLI in the top slot? Aslong as i know what i should be aiming for i can experiment with different options smile.gif

I syncd my core clocks to +50mhz last night on both cards and the top card reached about 72c which i dont think is too bad.

I wonder if anyone has ever braved it and cut some fan holes in their 600t side window / panel? 2 80cm fans could sit quite happily in the side window without taking up too much room. I'm not so sure the plastic will withstand drilling though.

I would definitely appreciate pictures. I dunno if I have the skill or necessary tools for DD's mod : /

Edit: Oh, by the way, do you have any ideas on how to paint that silver part where the 5.25" cage attached?

Did the 120mm not help? Curious.

Someone here said they were planning on doing just that with their window. It would be a cool mod, although there would still be the problem of dust filtering for me.

Hey Darylrese, Spot cooling your GPUs with a high static pressure fan will improve your temps. You gotta push the cool air into where the hot air is being recycled so that it displaces the hot air with cooler air so your GPU can suck in the cooler air. Also, use EVGA Precision X or MSI afterburner and make the top card's fan speed faster at the critical temps. A 120mm Corsair SP Performace fan on top of the drive cradle should be enough. if not, you could always mod the window panel.. just buy another in case you screw up your first one. BTW, it'll help to have a strong front intake too.
post #8579 of 18196
By the way, I replaced the front fan with a CM Storm Force 200mm fan and my case is a tad quieter and if i have all my fans at full tilt i have neutral pressure biggrin.gif ...
Still experimenting on different loads and situations so that i can use the fan controller to get neutral pressure as often as i can :3 anyways, here are 2 photos. i'll be posting them on the facebook™ page too.
post #8580 of 18196
CM Storm Force? Is that new?

I set up a Corsair 120mm SP fan at the front like yours yersterday (well, without the 5.25" cage). I'm not sure if it's making a difference in temps, but it's giving me positive pressure. I switched my frontmost top intake for a backmost top exhaust with another AF. So I've got two AFs exhausting, one rear and one top, and a front SP and my 200mm Bitfenix Spectre Pro intaking. I'm spot cooling my GPU with a blue LED CM Sickleflow 120mm, but I might switch it for my other Corsair SP so it looks nicer. By the way, how did you get your spot cooling fan to stand so upright? The tie-down spots make mine tilt back.
