Is it me or is it making a weird sort of noise that for me is hard to describe? Its making me have second thoughts about getting the 200mm one.

The 120mm Spectre Pro I have is nice and quiet. I was actually expecting it to be louder. As far as the front 200mm, the fan itself is quiet, but being so close to the mesh it creates a kind of whining sound. Its not that bad, but I wish I had cut the mesh out before I put my system together.

You could do it with a Nibbler and only have to remove the fan. thumb.gif I did that with my last case and it's rear mesh. thumb.gif

My 600T shipped with both a mesh and acrylic window...

How long do you think it would take to cut a clean opening? Doesn't have to be perfect, but a decent job. Thanks.

I wish there was a 200mm Rad you could mount in the front without modding.

post #2549 of 4826
i think u can fit the 360 in the front with not much of a problem. modding it would be just to cut the fan grill out but other than that it should fit pretty snug against the top optical docs.

Guys

I think this rad might fit perfectly in the front, If my calculations are correct the holes should line up perfect
