Thanks for looking,

Nice looking rig smile.gif
I think you could improve airflow/cooling if you turned the CPU cooler 90 degrees? (intake pointing towards the front and exhaust right next to the exhaust fan in the case)

but by now you have probably allready upgraded to watercooled PC and no problem with airflow

Did you change the lower exhaust fan?

Hey

I have a Antec DF-35 case and I am trying to track down some mesh 5.25 bay covers so I can put a 120mm in my top bays. Has anyone used any other case specific covers and know they work, or any good universal ones? The only ones I can find are Lian Li ones and not sure if they will work... I might just make some but wanted to see if I can find some online somewhere.

Thanks

I had tried my buddies from his Antec 900 but the sides are not long enough to attach screws to them. Plus he only has one.

I tried making my own out of some old speaker mesh and they turned out not bad but were a tad to big. Still not happy with them.

I ordered some Akust 5.25 mesh bay covers so when they come in I will post how those are.

I took some pictures of my build so far.

Antec DF-35
ASUS Crosshair V Formula Thunder Bolt
AMD FX-8350 No OC
Cooler Master Silent Pro M2 620W
Kingston 8GB Hyper X running @ 2400
ASUS Radeon HD7870 V2
Samsung 840 120gb SSD
WD Green 1TB
CoolerMaster Hyper TX3 CPU cooler with additional fan.







After adding the top 120mm fan in the 5.25 bay I think i should orientate the cpu cooler 90 degrees. It is pulling in air from the bottom fan and pushing it out the top exhaust fan.

As it sits now i get CPU temps: Idle @ 13-14 degrees celsius, Prime 95 blend @ 44 celsius max. So not sure if I really need to orientate it differently. Thoughts?

If its chilling like that, dont remount the cooler.
There is always a chance youll mess it up and itll be worse then now.
Temps are OK, dont touch the cooler wink.gif
Not a big fan of the upper fan on the case thoug...

Finished my overhaul about a month ago and totally forgot about this thread. Anyways here is the updated version. next overhaul will be a watercooled specific case with full water cooling. Anyways everything fit like a charm and runs extremely well.
