i have two questions about this chassis.

1 ) The front cover of this case is alluminium outside and plastic inside or full alluminium ?

2 ) The I/O panel in front of the case ( USB connectors, audio jack, ecc... ) is removible whitout start and reset buttons or is it a single board ?
i speak about this :

1. Brushed aluminum on the outside, plastic on the inside.

2. It's a single unit, however the buttons and the little cover on the front panel are separate. The Start button and the HDD activity light are glued in there.

yeah you could remove those usb connectors, firewire, etc. they are just nested on slots on that front panel. on sevada88's first picture, you just unscrew it and there are 4 clips holding it in place. be a little careful with the clips on the side, they kinda break easily.

All right I had a few questions since I have a 650D. I bought and installed the 200mm Spectre Pro fan in the front as a intake. There is a CM Sickflow 120 in the rear as exhaust. I also have H100 push/pull on the top. Two of the fans are corsair fans and the other two are spectre pro 120 fans. The SP fans are on the top bringing cool air into the rad and the corsair fans exhausting into the case. Now I had this H100 setup a different way as well. The corsair fans on top to bring cool air in but they were very loud and gave me good temps. So I tried to switch the SP fans but now I get bad temps and the corsair fans blows all the hot air into the case. Heating up the 6970 card. Now I want to know how I can make this better. I was thinking of buying new fans for the H100 Cougar Vertex fans. But then my SP fans would be useless. So throw some suggestions guys want to know how to make the setup work.

i have the h100 and i dont really benefit from a p/p setup so what i will recommend is:

h100 to exhaust with 2 vortex fans
120 mm sp on the drive bay as intake to feed air to h100
120 mm sp running at lower rpm as exhaust
sell the stock corsair fan thumb.gif

personally i dont like setting the h100 as intake because it dumps too much heat in my case (i blame the gtx 580 for adding too much heat also).

Having it as exhaust also has the adavntage of it not sucking in humungous amounts of dust

The 6970 is long I wont be able to put a 120mm on the drive bay cage. I read at other forums that intake for H100 is better then exhaust. Besides I got so many fans I could do with a push/ pull. I do heavy encoding and gaming and the 8150 is a power hungry beast so too much heat.
What if I set the 200mm SP fan in the front as exhaust and 120mm CM in the rear as intake, would it make some difference in the airflow of the system?
