A lot of options with HDD bays and cable management, so that was a huge upgrade from the 902. I had 0 issues with fan noise etc, however I did install the fan pack when I built it to avoid any potential issues.

I am still toying with ideas for more airflow to my GPUs. I left the top bay open for a bit more airflow to them, but my temps in gaming get a bit toasty (silly x58 sabertooth pciex16 slots being so close). Using CCC for GPU fan control is fine, my case just sounds like it will take off when I blast them at ~45%. I was thinking about zip tying a 120mm to the open slot above my HDD bay to blow directly on the GPUs. We will see what I go for.

Either way - Loving the case! Not to mention I got lucky with an open box deal on Newegg as the new part numbers came out. It completes my nerd cave nicely.

I have a antec 902 and my gpu barely fits. How is the space in the 650 compared to the 902? And also u said playing games it got toasty in the 650d, did u have the same issue with the 902?

swapped some stuff around and made some changes in anticipation of the two 580's UPS is dropping off today.


new PWM noiseblockers installed in 5.25" bay and as rear exhaust:

Tried to clean up the wiring some. Panels fit very nice, but it could still use some work :sigh!:

Got 140mm noiseblocker pk2's up top.

Gotta say i'm much happier with the noise now.

I have the 140mm on 5v resistors and the ap181 on a 10V resistor. I can hear it with the ap181s inline switch set to high, but its not bad. On low it's almost silent.

Cant wait to get the new controller and do away with the resistors.

Yea, my GPUs were pretty tight as well. The main reason my GPUs get toasty is due to my PCIe slots being so damn close on my mobo. My bottom card temps are always fine, but my top card gets hot because it has trouble moving the air.

The air flow in the 650D is great so far. It is highly customizable as well. I have plans to put a 120mm in the slot above my HDDs to blow right onto the GPUs, like I had set up in my 902. You can also put a 3x5.25 bay adapter up top (if you only use 1 5.25" slot) and shove another 120mm fan as well. The options for airflow out-do the 902 should you choose to use them.

What 5.25" bay adapter is that?

also- I originally set up my HDDs where you did, but it got really crammed with 2 GPUs. I have my fan controller "fix" kit installed yet I am trying to figure where a couple humming noises are coming from and trying to work it out. I use 4x GTs, and just the 1 200mm front fan, so I shouldn't be hearing too much....

I need to figure it out because I would like to add a 120mm in a 5.25" 3 bay adapter (like you) and a 120mm blowing on my GPUs in the bay above the HDDs (you can see my pics above)

i took one of [ame="http://www.amazon.com/SilverStone-Aluminum-5-25-Inch-Converter-CFP51B/dp/B000NV9DMC/ref=sr_1_30?ie=UTF8&qid=1304445987&sr=8-30"]these [/ame]apart.

I had my HDD in the 5.25" bay, but i wasn't happy with all the SATA power/data cables and decided to try it this way.

Before i got the AP181 and sent off both 570's for step-up i had a fan almost where you want to put one.

I had a 120mm air penetrator here:

There is a little lip which makes a nice backstop for mounting a fan. I just basically didnt like the look and figured i was better off just replacing the stock 200mm with a 181.

Were you able to just take off that front plate with the silverstone emblem to reveal the front cage etc?

ya the whole thing comes apart into several pieces really easy..

but you could probably just get a cheaper one without all the extra crap you'd just take off anyways.

There are several options for internal 5.25" hdd coolers.

Cool thanks, I have seen some decent Lian Li options, as well as cheaper models. I will look into it if the 120mm above the bottom HDD bay doesn't help temps.

be warned that the lian li hdd coolers that include an extrnal mesh piece like this, will not work without taking a dremel to the front panel of the 650d.
