It's about 3/4" to 1" depending on the area.

The great thing about having all that space behind the back panel is that it's awesome for cable routing, but the negative is that unless you make the entire case wider (which adds a lot more to shipping costs than you'd think) then you're going to cut into the height of the CPU cooler.

Perhaps you could mount a black box like the CM HAF X ones.

my lian li bezel mod and front mesh filter for a 120mm intake fan for the 5.25 bay worked well enough for me to be happy with it. Sorry the pictures suck, but this is better than with flash.

How is the airflow of this case, what are the 570's temps, I'm considering to buy this case and 6950 crossfire in it.

there is a lot to work with depending on what you feel like doing.

My top 570 doesnt really get above 80 OC'ed to 800 on stock voltage and using the auto fan setting, which i cant hear over the case fans.

If i match the noise of the GPUs with the case fans (about 75%) they load in the low 70s.

If i give them 1.0875 and bump them to 930mhz at 75% fan settings the top card jumps back up to about 80C.

I am not running the case stock though. I replaced the 120mm exhaust fan with a noiseblocker M12-S3HS (same fan i used in the 5.25" bay).

I am also not using the hdd cages that came with the case, as i have my ssd and hdd mounted in the 5.25" bay.

This leaves nothing between the 570s and the front 200mm intake fan.

There is plenty of room to add another 120mm intake on the bottom of the case almost right under the GPUs if you are inclined to do so. If you did and wanted to filter the air, i think the PSU fan filter could be mounted pretty easy to the bottom if you can get your hands on an extra. I also think you could rig it up to slide right out to clean, just like the psu filter, only from the side and not the back.

I am not sure if i will do this myself or not.

I never did do any testing with the stock config because i had my own ideas lol.

Oh, so there is room for a bottom fan provided you don't have an extended power supply?

That makes the case even more attractive. Your mods look really nice BTW.

what'd you do for the bezel mod? is the door spring loaded or did you separate the bezel into two parts?

i took the spring off and separated it. I didnt want to mod the front panel of the 650d if i didnt have to, so i just separated the bezel and attached the bottom to the drive cage and the top to the drive tray.

Ya i guess i should have clarified, you'd be better off with a moderately sized psu like i'm using if you wanted to add another intake to the bottom.


The whole thing looks good enough, but you know how it is when you do something yourself you can see every imperfection. the pics really highlight that too .. the coloring is a lot more uniform in real life.



here is one with flash:

Looks good Fulkton. I should have all of my watercooling parts in by the end of the week. I am going to mod the front so I can add a 200mm up front with the 240mm rad up top. I am going to be cooling 2 580's. Ill post some pics one I get it set up.
