Somewhere in the middle would be fine. I prefer it to be white to match the other fans, but it can be black and orange too. It doesn't matter to me if it is PWM or not.

Oh, didn't know that. Well, would the stock 140mm fans be good enough as an exhaust?

@ airdeano - That looks awesome. Can't wait to see it finished.

@ ahzrukhal - I purchased these http://www.fractal-design.com/?view=product&category=4&prod=19 which are slower than the stock fans but very quiet. I have 2 in the front and 1 in the rear and 2 ap-15s on my h100 and during gaming sessions with all fans on the lowest I get a max of 65 on the cpu and 67 on the gpu and I can hardly hear my rig. The only thing I can hear that is kind of loud is my h100 pump but it's being sent back for a replacement AGAIN.

I'll get better pics once evreything is done. The plan is to replace the front mest with acrylic, cut 2 fan holes, then carbon wrap it to finish the look. Got the acrylic cut to fit in place of the mesh, now i just need to cut the 2 fan holes thumb.gif

Few updates smile.gif
  • GTX 580 (HD6870 running to hot)
  • Custom side panel.
  • small amount of cable work.

The side panel didnt come out how i wanted it to, im getting the font laserd on with a thicker outline or maybe even filled, still looks awesome though! thumb.gif

great modding...
take some electrical tape and run a stripe along the chassis rails to block out the through light of
the interior lighting. makes it solid. i will use a 3D carbon vinyl for my black out..
