Same reason why everyone else doesn't? I think it takes up way too much space at the back and it dissallows you to use the side 200mm fan.

Personally I'd rather lose 1 top 200mm over the side one as 1 top 200mm is more than enough to draw out heat. However having no side means a lot less cool air onto the mobo.

The side fan does nothing to help airflow in this case. Its positioning doesn't help the CPU or Gpu's if anything it hurts the cooling allowing air to escape the case without providing benefit.

Hello,

I was wondering if there i a way to connect both top 200mm fans to the on/off light switch.
Both of them are the 200mm NZXT Phantom fans with the blue led.

Thanks

Incorrect. Its very beneficial to the temps of the motherboard and graphics card(s)

I've got to agree with Rowey here. There is a reason side mounted fans have become so popular aside from their asthetic value.

But thats sorta beside the point. Does anyone have the dimensions of that converter?

My side fans keep air going at my motherboard, since I have water cooling, I have no air flow on my VRMs without the side fan. It also helps bring in air to go up through my rad in the top of my case.

Exactly my point mate
post #2708 of 15187
maybe i should point out that in my setup the normal limitations of this case are not present.

I have all sidepanel holes closed off with acrylic windows.
I am using a sabertooth P67 with the fan in the tuf armor to cool the vrm's and other motherboard components.
I am using intake in the front and back and exhaust out the top.

my case temps are great but am not following any of the standard setups for this case.

considering buying a new noctua fan for my case/cpu. I currently have the stock fan as exhaust out the back and a gentle typhoon on my thermalright HR-02 blowing from right to left. The gentle typhoon is 37cfm, the back fan is 47cfm and then fan I plan to buy will be 59cfm.
What I'm wondering is which fan to have on the cpu, should i go for the highest cfm fan on the cpu and the lower one on the exhaust or the other way round?
Thanks
