What measurements did you use for the cut? I imagine the width is the same so you just had to cut the right height.

That link didn't work for me. As for the cut, the width is the right size and you just need to cut the height. I decided to just fully remove my ODD at that point haha. Honestly, most bay adapters will work, I just wanted a black one that matched up. I noticed a little bit lower temps on load for my CPU as well, gaining a little airflow up top. Plus it looks awesome.

How did you attach the mesh to the front of the case? Does Corsair also include a dust filter with it?

to those who want to add a 120 mm fan at the drive bay, you can put thick foams at the side to lessen vibration plus the foam itself will hold it securely in place. even without modding the front panels, the airflow from the 120 mm fans is still very good. it is a waste of money to buy a drive adapter biggrin.gif

i am too lazy to take a picture so i will just borrow ehume's picture.

mine works fine even with the psu fan facing downward. i think the filter shouldn't really be moving unless the psu itself is vibrating?

That sounds like something else is going on. Is the filter bent or warped at all?

I had the same suspicion too. I'm not sure how to figure it if it is indeed the PSU vibrating, making the dust filter rattle. I have a Seasonic X750 PSU, and it has that auto fan feature, where the fan turns off when my pc doesn't need the power. I think whenever the fan goes on and off, it vibrates, slightly causing the dust filter to move a bit. But I'm not sure.

If that's the case you may have an unbalanced or loose fan in your PSU. That sort of thing should never occur. Try listening to the PSU with the side panel off when you put the system under load and see if you can hear anything odd.

I have the same PSU as you do. I can't even tell when the fan turns on or off, so there definitely is something odd going on there.

I don't even use my dust filter, occasionally it rattled a bit from my WD Black spinning up, and my X650 doesn't even use it's fan so I just removed it, not to mention my 650D is on my desk tongue.gif
