I wish they made a triple 120 top panel i could mod to fit the 05N. That would make installing a triple rad much easier.


Im still up in the air if i want to paint the alum interior or not.

Anyone know if this panel will fit on the A05? http://www.performance-pcs.com/catal...ducts_id=24799 Im looking to just purchase one because I dont have the tools to cut it myself.

It will assuredly require you to mod it.

Edit: Edit your post silly.

The panel might fit, but it's odd that P-pcs doesn't list compatibility. You'd probably want to install it backwards so the radiators were toward the rear of the case, which will require modifying the slots for the side panels

I have a question for those who have this case:

I have a TRUE with a push pull config. I bought a H50 for use with this case (slowing working on it before installing).

So, I'm wondering if i'm not better to keep with the TRUE and returning the H50 (SSD maybe?) or the H50 would be that much better.

I think that the TRUE would help keep air moving more in the case?

I'm not asking of TRUE vs H50, I've read those reviews. I'm talking about them in this particular case. Thoughts?

TRUE would be better in terms of keeping airflow through the case. It would make sure air reaches the hdds and the PSU.

I see in the evolution of your build that you did have water cooling once (even H50 based), but now have a version of a TRUE, so thanks for the words. Did you notice about the same performance?

Also, I was wondering from the later version of your build, you dropped the side duct, any reason why or was it just taken off for pictures?

high end air > budget water

always.

A good 10-15c drop in CPU temps compared to a stock H50. Hard drives and PSU also ran much cooler.

The side duct is actually pretty pointless in this case for a few reasons
  • if you have it set to blow hot air out it will just be sucked back in by the rear intake
  • if you have it set to blow cool air in it will just intake hot air from the GPU

Thanks (again). Wish I didn't spend the time painting it. Oh well, maybe I'll mess around with it and see what I can do with it.

I think the side duct would only work well as exshaust only if you had this on the intake pointing down.
