I think you could easily do a cool fan guard design yourself, just something minimal that still hinders you from slipping a finger in it.

You don't need more fans, you just need to accept your Darkside and get a water block for you GPU and go the full hog. All my water cooling is just for my GPU, in the end all the equipment cost more than the GTX690 was brand new on release date.. but my card went from 89'C down to 46'C at full load even with 8 hours of continual game play

I just moved it around to see how it would be if I would mount it in a 5.25 bay. I put it back in it's original place, started up pc and well the rest you know.

And to say I was gonna sell it frown.gif
Then it must of been on its way out, simply moving it wouldnt of damaged anything so i wouldnt worry, its nothing that you would of done (if thats all you did)

hehe i would do mate but watercooling SLI is going to be expensive and a pain in the 600T!

I could go down the road of fitting a closed water loop to my GPU's like i did with my old GTX 580 (see pictures below), The temps and noise on that was amazing but even that would cost £100 and would need to find space for two extra radiators.

67c is the highest i have seen it since removing the filter which is a 7c drop and well within acceptable limits. A Fan guard is the answer for my current setup as it wont restrict airflow but will give it a better finish thumb.gif

I pulled the mesh off the Silverstone filter and refitted it and the max temp was 71c which isn't too bad but i didn't like it enough to keep it fitted.

I personally would rather keep the filter on. Couldn't stand the though of all that dust going into my case. It's not like 77 is a fatal temperature by any means.

But I see you're dead set on getting your nice temps tongue.gif That's fair enough. I'm sure it still looks nice with the fan guard.

Edit: I was planning on getting a couple of red LED 200mm Spectre Pros but now I'm scared that I'll get bad ones. I dunno if I can convince myself to get a Megaflow because of how inferior its build quality is in comparison, though. I really don't like how cheap Cooler Master fans feel.

too excited for my next mod. the ssd wallmount mod. going to dispatch my hdd and change it to another intel 330 series 120gb in raid0. smile.gif i'd do something like my previous build but this time an icy dock will be mounted with the 2 ssd's. smile.gif
my previous core 3000 build
the ssd was mounted in a sheet of metal and i'd do something like that but with the icy dock mounter. smile.gif

this is going to be beautiful. i guess. smile.gif

True!
But the glass side panel may not only be used to show off your parts, but also to keep positive pressure in the case as most of the air that the side panel fan brings in would escape through the mesh. That's the idea behind my modification of my case which I'm yet to share pictures of. With only one 120mm in the back and my video cards as exhaust, the air is literally forced into the cards.
If you really want to show off parts, might as well get the full glass side panel

Sorry manny, i can't remember from previous posts, do you have your h100 as intake or exhaust?

I am thinking about this route... should have never spent the money on a h100i but that is in the past. What I am more concerned about is my cards. Only down side is that living in Korea, I am probably going to have to import the items in and maybe pay taxes on it. Probably could get a family member to send to me for about the same price as my 20 boxes of girl scout cookies cost tongue.gif It won't be cheap either way!
