Might I also suggest getting another 200mm fan, I just replaced mine with a Bitfenix Spectro Pro and it moves way more air.
You could also use the meshpanel and install more fans on there.

This is as far as my knowledge goes, maybe someone else can help further. And congrats on the case.
Sorry that was a photo of when I was putting everything together. The HDD bay on the bottom now has three drives but the ODD bay on top is empty. Tried removing it but it seemed like its not removable. Is it possible to remove it?
Also, I tried putting the HDDs in the ODD bay, but I couldnt find a way to do so. They just wont fit.
I dont want to use the mesh panel. It would ruin the amazing view of the Titan that I have. tongue.gif
I dont have too many brands available locally. I'll have to see if I can find better 200mm fans.

Thanks a lot! smile.gif

Tidy up the cables a bit and you should be good to go. If you want additional airflow you can ghetto mount a fan between the hdd cage and the 5,25". It might help you with a degree or two. biggrin.gif
Thats the thing. I need it to drop by 10 degrees. I cant overclock my Titan at all due to thermal limits. It can do 1202/1877 in Valley 1.0 when below 80c. But I had to max the GPU fan out at 85 and open up the cases from both sides to get temps below 80c, and even then it doesnt stay below that limit for two back to back benchmark runs. Such a waste of potential GPU power!

Trust me, I do too! here's a sample of what I wanted mine to look like. (found it here on OCN)


But I'm nowhere near getting mine to look that good! I'll post a current picture of my case in a few hours and maybe you guys can suggest accordingly.

Thanks a lot to everyone! smile.gif

I've seen a build a couple of pages back where it was removed, so I guess it's possible. You will have to buy 3,5" to 5,25" adapters. I ordered these but haven't received them yet.

Lol yes I wouldn't want to close that up either smile.gif

Most people here suggest the Bitfenix one or MegaFlow from Coolermaster (LED fans)

In regards to the 5.25 ODD bay, you'll have to de-rivet it to get the cage out as its been riveted in along the sides.

I use the Bitfenix Spectre Pro 200mm and its a beauty. Pushes a good amount of air and not as noisy as the stock corsair ones at 12v

If the 5.25" bays are available here, I'm definitely getting three for my HDDs.
Bitfenix isnt available here. I'll have to check for the CM Megaflows.
Thanks for the suggestions! smile.gif

You mean I have to cut it out with something? No thanks! I dont want to ruin the paint job of the case. Its easier to just get 5.25" bays for the HDDs and put them in the ODD bay and remove the HDD bay altogether.

Everyone's suggesting the Bitfenix fans, but they're not available here. I'll look up my options and consult with you guys as to which one I should buy.

Thanks! smile.gif

Ahh, yea I understand, well what I meant is that the extra fan between the HDD cage and the ODD could give you a degree or two on it's own. You will most likely see more than that with some better fans installed. 10 Degrees could be difficult but not impossible.

I'm bored so I'm just looking at your pic again. If you want your build to look like the one posted you will need to order extension cables for the gpu (8pins) and the 24pin motherboard connection. You could also replace the exhaust fan with an AF120 from corsair.

Oh I see you have the Dominator Platinum ram, I want that but just for the looks tongue.gif How is the led light on those?

I'm eagerly waiting your update pic smile.gif

Got it! What configuration of fans will allow a drop of 10 degrees, can you give me some pointers?
From my experience, it actually does seem impossible. I had to open up the case from both sides, max the GPU fan, and max both my ceiling fans to get a drop of 10c. I doubt that a drop of 10c is possible without watercooling and/or air-conditioning in my room.

Thanks a lot! smile.gif

This is the best I could do at a short notice. Hope it helps! smile.gif

I cant get sleeves in my country. They're not available here.
I'm surprised at myself. Why didnt I notice that I could use an AF120? I'll make sure to get one when I get all the other fans.
The Platinums really are exquisite. Too bad the LEDs on them dont show too much because of the huge LEDs of the 200mm fan above it.

Thanks again! smile.gif

Well you would have to have some high performance fans in order to drop it down 10 degrees. And that will be LOUD.

The setup I could imagine dropping it down 10 degrees just with fans is a 200mm Bitfenic Spectre pro, any high performance 140 fan between hdd cage and the ODD cage, Three high performance exhaust fans. MAAAYBE that could drop it down 10 degrees, but it's going to be tough.


http://www.tomshardware.co.uk/forum/331629-28-cooling-roundup-2012

I'd say look into something like the Cooljag Everflow, they seem to perform great (I do hope that you aren't afraid of noise biggrin.gif) Deltas are also a great choice if performance > noise is important.

But truth be told , where you will notice the most difference is by adding a side intake fan. If you don't want the mesh you can do as Darylreese and some other people here have done and modded their windows to add a fan mount on it.
