I haven't tried them yet, probably won't even use them.

These extensions of ports never bring anything good in terms of signal quality.

Ok let me try. I have the front panel off anyway.

Jeez these do suck indeed. At first thought they are jammed or something, couldn't plug it in. Then after a few tries got it down on both ports. They seem to need some break in and will always need more force to plug them in at the very end. They will hold sure, you won't accidentally unplug them. But sometimes it's better to unplug your headphones than to break your cable or headphones. Don't like the ports, too hard. Hardest 3.5mm jacks I've ever used.

Beat it on their head to fix it. I don't feel like returning every god damn computer part I buy. Chinese manufacturing...

So that sounds like mine...

I only use them for my headphones when I use them. I have 5.1 system connected at the back and I don't want to unplug it every time.

Don't a lot of 5.1 systems come with a headphone jack port in the controlling (right) speaker? Mine does.... so if i would ever feel the need to plug in a headphone, i dont need to unplug anything, nor do i need to use front panel ports (these are 80% of the time crap anyways)

anyone tried different airflow combinations with the 2 top fan positions and can comment on results?

was thinking about top rear outflow and front top inflow?

Atm im using two 140mm fans that came with the case as front intakes and tomorrow ill add another 140mm as bottom intake. Using only one 120mm exhaust which i plan to replace with same 140mm Fractal fan.

Temps are good imo, CPU hovers around 50C in gaming, GPU 84C (stock HD 6970, my r9 290 that died was around 65C), HDD and SSD around 35C ( no airflow for them )

I would do the same, definitely top front as intake. I would probably try to put there some separation so the outtake does not suck the intake fan and the air is forced to go down. Shouldn't make a big difference but you can try.

H110 does not fit correctly. The clearance for the rad+fans from the 8pin connection kinda gets in the way.
You can do a 240 on top and 240 in front or 360 on top with OD removed.

I removed the side grill, bottom grill and rear grill. then I`ve put 140mm fans on the side and on the bottom. dropped my gpu down to 64C on load, that`s minus 11c before removing! crazy

gonna play with top fans now around and see what goes

//edit, top fans intake or outtake does nothing temperaturewise for me.
