Wow, I never knew you could remove that. I am so frustrated now as I just finished my build yesterday. Oh well, may not be much of a temperature difference.

Just one question... Do you have 1 or 2 top 200mm Fans??
Because if you have only 1, then its quite understandable... Cause mesh doesnt let air through easily, and it will be pushed back into case through the hole for another 200mm fan...

Yeah, I have just one 200mm fan in the top. I'll probably add the second one when I have some extra money for fans.

Could do with some help with airflow, overclocking my cpu to 4.6ghz temps are hitting just over 70C. Opened my case to feel how much air the fans are pushing and it just felt like the top fan was blowing in hot air. The fan on my heatsink is mounted to blow from bottom to top (it's an 1150rpm gentle typhoon). What do people think is the best way to push heat out of my case off the processor?
Thanks

on the tread i have seen someone that replaced the extra HDD bay with the 5 HDD bay, but i couldn't find it again. The question is the extra HDD bay can be mounted in the 5 HDD bay with screws or pop rivets?

that's how it's currently setup and it's not working wonders to be honest. Might try flipping my heatsink round 90 degress so it blows from right to left.
