Mesh panel is good but windows is better. Never mind when Corsair arrives in Serbia I will buy all 3 different panel, normal, mash and window reserve because I never change this case. N E V E R.
Window for every day to look inside, mash with 4 fans when something OC, and normal when remove case on different location.

Hi guys,

My mesh insert just arrive today. I took a few pics. I am not thrill with the quality. I am not sure if I got the bad batch, but as you can see in the picture, most of the rubber stubs are not flush against the mesh like some of the other rubber stub. It just bend out at a weird angle and I can't force it to smooth out. Also I missed that free shipping discount which hurt since the shipping cost more than the mesh itself.


Aside from those nitpicking, the mesh look like it belong. I am currently using the CM 200mm temporarily until tomorrow when my four YL D12SM arrive. I am already miss my clear window, but I really need the 4x 120 side fans as my SLI 570 run 93F on the top video card and 86F on bottom playing BF3 beta.

I must doing something wrong to have those high temps on the video cards. I am currently running 2 Noctua P-14 on top as intakes, 1 Noctua p-12 as exhaust in the back attached to the radiator and another stock 120 corsair fan attached to the same radiator. A 140mm and 120mm both as intakes both in the front replacing corsair stock 200mm. I also attached a Scythe Ultra Kaze 3 on top of the HDD cage as intake to blow air into the video cards. Now hopefully the addition 4 yate loon side fans will cool the vga down. Please someone provide some suggestions on how to improve the video card temperatures.


on the bolded did you mean Fahrenheit or was that supposed to be Celsius?

cause if you really did mean 93F then thats very very cool...if thats 93C then you got some issues...not sure what they could be though...seems from reading the rest of the post you may need to change around some fans from intakes to exhaust...you may have to make the tops exhaust...cause the issue could be not enough exhaust and too much intake and its all just swirling hot air around..but honestly im not 100% as air flow isnt my strong suit

Sorry, it 93C and I haven't overclock it either. I try changing all sort of direction for the fans, most effective was by having 2 top exhaust but that only lower it by a degree. I try leaving my room temperature to a low 70F, and it still running a hot 93C. There is a large gap between the two cards, there is a pci slot in between the vid cards. So I still can't see why this is a problem. Currently playing League of Legends, and it stay at a constant 85C. But I am hoping to play BC3 next week when it release, and 93C is not healthy for my vid cards. I have been reading on improvement air flow and bought many high rated fans, so far it not helping. Only hope I have now is the 4 YL fans coming tomorrow. So after installing that, I would have 11 fans total in the 650d case and that cpu watercool kit from corsair not sure what I got.

Can you take a picture of the inside of your case for reference? If you haven't already check out the thread I linked in my last post.

Hi,

Thanks for the link, I think my current set up is really similar to that except for the back top which is intake and not being blocked.

Here is the inside, a bit outdated my front 200mm intake is replaced by two fans. I also attached a scythe ultra kaze 3000rpm running max on top of the HDD cage there, not on the picture, currently it does not lower anything, I think it making it hotter.

That didn't help? eek.gif What are your ambient temps? You can also try removing the PCI slot covers on the back panel. That will allow more air from the Kaze fan and your GPU's to get out.

Also what card to you have specifically?
