The only thing my Megaflow wont fit is the size (30mm), I have/had to move the front cage back or remove it.

Sharp looking build lowfat.

I just have to ask ... wouldn't an intake in the rear position make sense? Seems like it'd feed your rad pretty nicely.

I *really* like the looks and design of this case, but I decided to go with an RV03 this go round ... although I could possibly be convinced to switch as I've not started the build yet.

Really the only thing I don't like about this case is the lack of a bottom fan. The cooling layout of this is an awful lot like my Sniper, and I'm not entirely happy about it's cooling even with the front bay removed AND a bottom 140mm AND an Antec 900 drive bay I have installed in the front which provides even more air (however apparently based on an earlier post from last week, that drive bay would likely fit in this case just fine as well).

So basically I'm rather doubting the 650 is capable of providing me with any better GPU cooling than my Sniper ... and better GPU cooling is one of my main reasons for upgrading my case.

But dang, I sure like the looks of this one SO MUCH better than the RV-03. I LOVE the look of clean, black brushed aluminum and no exterior plastic.

If I was just running a single GPU and didn't have to worry much about airflow to two cards ... I'd be on this case like white on rice. It's a REALLY nice looking unit, and everyone's builds I've seen on this thread look pretty stellar. Good job all around OCN'ers

I'm looking to get this case (its a beauty ) but have a few questions.

First, would this cable be good for replacing the firewire front panel port?
http://www.performance-pcs.com/catal...3f5ea4a928ed37

Its a female usb 2.0 to internal header plug. I plan to remove the front firewire, dremel the hole out a bit to be a rectangle not whatever rhombus it is, and somehow affix the above cable to it. Thats one thing I do not like about the case; I've no need for firewire.

My other question is regarding the "feet" of the 650d. Are the "feet" removable? I want to add some milled black aluminum feet, and dont mind drilling holes in the floor of the case, but I want to make sure the default stands the case is on can be removed without too much marring.

Anyone have any experience in these things? Or could you look at your case and see? No reviews show the inside of the front io box, nor the very bottom of the case in any detail. xP

I am currently in a debate between a few different replacement 200mm fans for the front of my 650D. I am not a fan (pun intended) of the stock 200mm from corsair due to average airflow and relatively high dBA. Maybe this post can also help people in the same boat as myself.

Stock Corsair fan
Fan Speed: 1000RPM
Air Flow: Up to 92 CFM
Noise: 28.8dBA
Bearing: Sleeve

COOLER MASTER Megaflow 200
Fan Speed: 700RPM
Air Flow: 110 CFM
Noise: 19dBA
Bearing: Sleeve
Size: 200 x 200 x 30mm

NZXT FN-200RB
Fan Speed: 1300RPM +/-10%
Air Flow: 166.2 CFM
Noise: 37.25dBA
Bearing: Sleeve
Size: 200 x 200 x 30mm

NZXT FS-200RB
Fan Speed: 800 RPM +/-10%
Air Flow: 89.5 CFM
Noise: 20dBA
Bearing: Sleeve
Size: 200 x 200 x 30mm
*This fan seems to come in a couple different LED colors as well with on/off switches, and the specs are almost the same.

XIGMATEK Cooling System XLF XLF-F2003
Fan Speed: 800 RPM
Air Flow: 76 CFM
Noise: <18dBA
Bearing: Sleeve
Size: 200 x 200 x 20mm
*This fan will fit without moving HDD bay(s) or modding the bays. Also comes in about every LED color imaginable.

Antec BIGBOY200 200mm
Fan Speed: 800 RPM
Air Flow: 134 CFM
Noise: 30dBA
Bearing: 2 ball
Size: 200 x 200 x 25mm
-will not fit (mounting holes don't align)

There are probably more 200mm fans out there, but this is just available newegg/amazon stock at the moment. So far I am leaning towards the CM 200mm, and moving my HDD bays. Seems like the best cfm/dBA mix. I just wish I could find it without LED.

Here is my current setup:

I think moving the HDD bays + a higher CFM fan will improve airflow throughout the case. Overall I absolutely love this case! New 200mm fan + new fan controller are the last two itches I have... for now...

Also, Very nice sleeving job too.
Doubt checked today and the fan is made by Antec, which is why I may have not been able to get the mounting holes lined up like you were.
