Yep I pulled the trigger and bought it!! biggrin.gif Should be here by Wednesday.

I ordered this too: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0078IWQGI/

Adding that to the front should help this case have better positive airflow. smile.gif

I would maybe take that fan out if you were going for a different color scheme lol

I have a red-ish color theme going on in mine so that fan may do really well if I was to install that but I would advise getting some BitFenix fans instead of using that stock Xigmatek fan.

Just a personal opinion of course wink.gif

Yeah I'll probably replace the fan that comes with the bay adapter. I'll most likely get another Bitfenix Pro fan. I've already ordered the 200mm and two 140mm Bitfenix Pro fans for the case.

Yeah if you already have the other ones on order you might as well get the 120mm for the bay adapter.

Sourtop has a pic showing a similar thing that he did to his case but I don't think he's using a bay adapter. He just has the fan sitting in the bay slots probably tied with zip ties biggrin.gif

Made some changes inside the case and added the fan in the optical drive!
EDIT: Wow, that fan dropped my temps across the board by 5-10 C!

Nope, I used the foam that came with my GTX 680's! There are a few pictures of it done in this topic.

Good point but the order already shipped! I have a couple extra 120mm fans so I'm going to try different things before buying more. When the case comes in I will be using a dremel to cut out the front fan grill. I'll post pics of how that comes out.

Hey Sour...
Did having that fan in the bays really drop your temps? I have the Corsair H100 installed but I was thinking of either having one in the bays or on top of my HDD cage.

What do you all think?

P.S. I was thinking of taking my Noctua fan in the back as exhaust and putting it on top of the HDD cage to cool down the dual 6870 cards.

Thanks,

Rosewill makes some good LED fans. I have a couple 80s (from a previous case) and some 120s and they all work great. Nice and bright and pretty quiet too
