Smells? For real, do you smell it often lol. Temps are awesome for me.

Max temp gigabyte windforce is 55c with no side fans. Woot!

So I got the 550D. No real good pics of it as I don't have my PSU/RAM/HDD in yet (Only SSD/mobo/CPU/Case/H100)

I got a fan controller from microcenter (again, LONG drive away) and it doesn't fit with the door.... No way I'm returning it to save $50. Not worth the $30 in gas I'd spend.

I'm stuck with a nice fan controller slightly recessed in the case. And to think I ALMOST got the touch screen one frown.gif

Also, if I have to be critical of the case, it isn't made half as well as my old FT02. Its sexy though..

I've thought about it and just might (We'll see if I can hook up all of my fans to the PSU without extra adapters when it comes)

If I did I now know the only thing that will fit is a touch screen or button based system, there is NO WAY knobs will fit behind this door.

Yeah no knobs. I got the nzxt sentry mesh. Not a touch screen but pretty flat. It was recommended by a previous owner.

Why'd you switch from that? It's a much more expensive case, too tongue.gif.

Do you have a fan controller? And how is it controlled by software?

I can't tell if my temps aren't great because of the lack of a rear exhaust fan, a bad seat with the H100, or because I'm using the Corsair fans on the H100. I was using a push/pull on my H50 with Scythe S-Flex's, so that could be a factor as well.

As if that wasn't enough, I still need to put in my CCL's and that rear exhaust fan. I have had the case for a while, but not a lot of time to really test it's temps or anything. It's ignorant of me, but im not even familiar with the features of the H100. I'm assuming it's 3 levels are low, medium, and high, but on high, the H100 gets LOUD. I just hope the Scythe's remedy that.

I see. Can you take a pic of it in your front bezel? Please? smile.gif

Fractal Design is making a similar controller with a brushed aluminum face that I may wait for. How is your H100 performing btw?

I haven't actually put it in yet. Busy week its sitting here in the box. I will probably have some time this weekend. I did see that one coming out from fractal. I would probably look better but I always have the door shut so wanted something that would fit.

My h100 is great. 2600k/4.8ghz/1.38v. Temps in the low 70's while priming. While folding its right below 70c. Hottest core sometimes hit 70.
I was hoping for 5ghz but my chip heats up too much as it takes a big voltage jum. Got into the low 80's.

Here you go, this is from a good guy that has helped a lot me after I showed interest in the case. I was going to buy his but it wasn't for sale yet when I had the cash. Great price.
