Man, the top mesh won't hurt airflow. I have an ex240 up top, with the fans mounted on top of the case between the mesh. My yate loons flow air just fine in a pull configuration (pulling air from the case, through the rad, and out the top).

I will tell you this, though... The ex240 will not fit up there without cutting away a significant portion of the plastic, and I see no reason the butcher the too panel when it fits perfectly inside.

If you remove the plastic bracing from the mesh area you can just yank out the filter. Top should be exhaust anyway (since intake would just suck falling dust in) so the removal of the filter only helps the flow.

With my ans pulling through the rad and blowing out the top I can't place business cards unless I stick something on top of them to hold them down. If that's not enough airflow for a radiator then some OEM solutions are in serious serious trouble.

All sorts of external n stuff n things.

Sure, unfortunately I lost the blueprints, but I made a simple draft to explain it.

Also note that the hdd's will get close to no airflow so I had to add that fan sitting by the 6950. Hope it helps smile.gif

I also decided I am doing this... so you just got some sheet metal, bent it, bolted it together and sprayed it right?

Yes, I used 20 gauge sheet metal. Also remember that the thikness of the material will skew your measurings 1 milimeter when you bend it, so if you want a height of let's say 9 centimeters you'll have to do your bend at 8.9mm and so forth.

also take this support beam into your consideration

I overlooked it and had to do some last minute cutting. redface.gif

I havent worked with steel before but have some experience with fabrication. Great design to separate the heat from the PSU, float the HDD's and make it look OEM.
