I'll probably get a Midi R2 for my gf later on and switch the windowed pannels.
Here's my part list, just in case : http://ca.pcpartpicker.com/user/stnz/saved/
I'm going for a white & black scheme as explained here
Now, question time !
Did any of you tried to rotate the bottom HDD bay ? If I can't, my problem is that I have 2 HDD & 1 SSD, the SSD can go behind the MOBO, that I know, one can go in the optical bay, but since I'm planning on getting a DVD drive (quite useless these days, but I still burn stuff time to time), where would the second HDD go ? Any idea ?
Second question is a fan question ! I'll use the same kind of airflow mentionned by iworkatstapples (and I work at staples too ! What a coincidence !), anyway, I'm planning on getting 4 x AF120 and 2 x SP120 (as replacement for the H100i fans), how to set them up to achieve this airflow ? This is my first build, I didn't go that far in the airflow route so far. I would place 1 at the back, 1 at the bottom and 2 at the front (also I'm starting to wonder if the bottom is truly useful if I cannot rotate the bottom HDD bay or remove entirely and still place my 3 HDDs).
Thanks guys, hoping to see some good answers
First Question: Use an Adapter to mount one hdd into the 5,25 bay and than drill some holes and skrew the second one under the bay. Than throw the ssd wherever you like
I´m still on my build so sorry for that mess...
Second Question: I would built on quiet a positive preassure.
Like 2 AF as Intake at the front, one intake at the bottom and rear intake (with a dustfilter on it thought.
Sorry for short answer I´m on the phone -__-
Just pm me if you have more questions..
