I am jealous of those Noctua fans and coolers, they are incredible! I just wish they offered some color schemes... If they had a black+white, I would be all over that ****! Great looking rig!

I finally got a Core 3000, and and decided to reorganize my cabling.

Looks good! I'm still debating whether to throw my middle HD cage back in or not... The open space for airflow is good but I feel like its empty... Not sure how the airflow will change from the front of the case with it in there.

it turns it into pure crap with OE fractal fans. the R2 or more powerful fans make a difference. im gunna fix
mine real good with no HDD cages and fill that "empty" look with alphacools (no monstas). just gotta get
all the review data and boo-yaaa.. swimming in mayhem..

I put it there since I routed my PCI power and Sata cables through there, to make it look neater biggrin.gif at the same time, it let me store the cables in the lower cages since the core 3000 won't really let me hide my cables in the back.

In the second pic there's the predecessor in the background, a scaleo p.... lol

Please forgive me for the floating molex connection, the fan controller cables are too short to route them behind the board! mad.gif

Let me know what you think and suggest improvements please!

yeah, routing all the cables behind the motherboard is quite difficult in the 3000, there's so little space.... but if you arrange the cables well it's sufficient to fit everything! thumb.gif

thanks! smile.gif

noctua nh-u12p se2 manual stated it can be placed one way or the other with no problem, i choosed the vertical exhaust cause the case will have to stay near the wall and it will have little space behind to blow air off.

You have to understand though that heat rises, essentially your taking the hot air from your GPU and blowing it across your heatsink if your venting up at the top. I suppose if you have it set to intake from the top blowing down it wouldn't be such a problem. I believe fractal design made the dust filters on the top and at the front because they want their customers to use positive pressure by utilizing the top and front as intakes and the rear as exhaust. This is how I have mine setup. Can't complain about the temps.

Thanks for sharing your thoughts guys!
At the moment, with 28°C ambient temperature the cpu (i5-2500k not oc'ed) idles at 35-36 that means 7-8°C above ambient... i don't know about full load cause still i haven't installed the OS by now.... when i get all the temps i'll give a try and see if the rear exhaust setup works better! thumb.gif
