I think that I might be doing something like that soon. biggrin.gif

biggrin.gif I didn't want to try out the side mesh just yet and had seen a member in the SA Club do this with a TY-140. Figured why not since I don't need more than two fans on my SA. Plus I want to crunch through more GPU heavy WU's in Boinc and F@H. biggrin.gif

I have a unopened shipping box containing the 650D side mesh right next to me that has been sitting for the last month or two. XD
post #2683 of 4826
That's just wrong...unless you're super busy. Due to my work and home hours it took me an extra three days to move into the 650D. Then the issues with top fan noise started the second I finally powered on for the first time. mad.gif I'm thinking about trying no fan up top as a temp fix over using one of the stock 200mm fans. Even with a 7v resistor it's still buzzing nasty annoying, lol.

3 Days! It took me about a half hour XD.

I don't have a GFX card so I don't need the extra ventilation for cooling. frown.gif

Stock fans really are bad lol. I like my CM megaflows. They aren't silent but they are pretty quiet on a controller and move a good bit of air.

My HDDs are still annoying...I am talking them out soon once I build my storage server.

Lol, I go slow especially with cable management once I confirm everything is working ok. I had to do all my planning during the build times as well. If I had the whole evening without distractions (my son waking up with teething pains) I would have finished in an hour or so. thumb.gif

Can you get a push pull H100 to work in this case without any modding?

Seems like some peoples 8pin or RAM get in the way of the two bottom fans.

Yes, you just may need to have it screwed in off center, but no modding needed.

Removing the bezel takes all of 5 minutes- I just googled remove DVD bezel and found a Youtube vid that shows exactly how I took mine off: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=usimq6Q3Pa0
Then all I did was take the original brushed aluminum/plastic drive bay cover and cut off everything. I used masking tape to cover the part I was keeping and to make sure that if the dremel/rotary tool slipped it would not mark up the cover. I used a standard cutting wheel at high speed and a sanding drum to smooth everything out.
All thats left at that point is to attach the new cover. I installed the drive into the computer with the tray fully closed just to make sure the front lined up with the rest of the covers. You should glue the bezel on with the drive attached to make sure everything lines up 100%. After the bezel is on, I ejected the drive via Windows and glued the calculator button on the bezel so that it sits right above the eject button.
Thats really all it took. I'm pretty sure I did it while I was watching a basketball game that got boring, so its really simple and a non intimidating task.

I was able to remove the face and tray bezel on my Asus optical drive. Unfortunately I didn't have any power tools like a dremel, so I stared at the 5.25 bay cover for a while and wondered if I could just remove the aluminum from the bay cover itself. You actually can! Except I went too quick, (using a paper clip to pry the aluminum portion off), and ended up doing a lot of bending to the metal. So unfortunately it's not straight and flat, but I did remove the aluminum. I can try straightening it, but it's practically impossible to get it perfectly flat. I'll have to order some extra cover panels and try something else out. And I'll need to buy some tape or something to attach it to the optical drive when I figure out how I'm going to do the cover panel. But yeah, the whole thing took like half an hour.

Thanks for the info. How should I go about getting extra bay covers? Would it be free?

Best way to get them is to contact Corsair. I have no idea wether you'll be charged for them or wether they'll send it to you for free.
