looking pretty good! have you tried double stick tape instead of the thumbscrews? Might be even more stealth.

Just realize I put the inlet and outlet wrong for my EK waterblock. Looks like I will have to change that tonight

Thanks for all the fan tips folks, much appreciated! thumb.gif

That review with the # of fans is awesome! Going to give that a read.
Quote:
1. The amount of venting in your case can have a huge impact on cooling, particularly around the CPU area. If you have fan mounts here that are blocked up, unblock them.

2. Generally, all other things being equal, it’s better to get hot air out of your case than to pump cool air in, particularly when it comes to CPU cooling.

3. If you have a roof mount that’s located nearer the front of the case than the CPU cooler, leave it open. Fitting a fan here only causes problems.

4. If you have one, two or three fans in your case, the side panel intake mount is the most important. Fill this first, followed by the rear exhaust mount, followed by the roof exhaust mount.

5. Bear in mind the fact that fans have an effect on each other and use this to your advantage. For this to work though they need to be close enough to interact - a side intake works better with a rear exhaust than a front intake does for this reason.

6. With four or more fans, concentrate on traditional front to back cooling and creating one strong, continuous air flow. Fill the front intakes and the roof and rear exhausts first.

7. More fans does mean more cooling, but expect diminishing returns when going above three or four fans.

Will an H80 in push pull fit in an R4? I am thinking about getting the r4 today and I just want to make sure I can fit my h80 in push pull on the back

I can try fitting an H80 tonight after work.

I currently have an H100 installed (push only, limitation of the R4's centered mounting) but I have an extra H80 lying around.

I can PM you or post pics.

Having a hard time doing the front panel mod on my Midi.

I plan on having it like wilow has it. Cut the material and then put the mesh on it. However, last time I tried I got uneven circles. How should I measure this? I'm very confused..
