Corsair Obsidian 650D Mid-Tower - Page 134

post #1331 of 4826
Ok, so what fans should I get, I want to replace the front 200mm and the rear 120mm to quiet but effective blue led fans any thoughts on which ones should get?

and what is with the cutting of the front grill behind the fan filter? does it improve air flow that much? I don't want to ruin my beautiful case frown.gif

Sean please help me biggrin.gif

Wow, aren't I fast? lol

I'm getting a CM megaflow for the front of mine. Has blue LEDs too and is quiet.

You should cut the mesh in the front and the back, cuts noise and increases airflow.

And you won't need a fan in the back if you cut the mesh smile.gif

sweet thanks smile.gif

I don't want to cut it though frown.gif noise I can live with but is it really needed for airflow, I mean I haven't oc'ed my gpu or my cpu yet.

Do ou have any tests showing the decrease in heat? I dont want to destroy my brand new case for a measly 3c or something frown.gif

LOL, destroy lachen.gif

You don't even see the front hole anyways. I was afraid like you too. But now that I did it my temps have gone down ~3C lol

Once I get my Megaflow I have a feeling it will decrease my GPU temps like 2C and CPU a little as well.

If you want you can just get the side mesh and a few extra fans...but then you will have no window. tongue.gif

anyone know if the rattling the drives make in the case are that bad?

If so one of these might work: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817996019

2-3c isnt worth cutting the case for me anyway but i will still get my megaflows from coolermaster biggrin.gif

the reason I bought the case was because it was sleek and the window tied the case together smile.gif

EDIT: OH BTW MOFO 1337 post!
