    Thanks. It sucks mega amounts of dust. It is a good case and one day when I can be bothered it also offers pretty good cable managment.

    try a few swifter refills for dust filters they work and when they get full just rip it off and throw it away and replace with a new one

    I don't use filters. They kill flow, and therefore cooling.

    I just keep a can of air handy, and choose not to be too lazy to clean out my PC every once in a while.

    Temps dropped for the GPU's as they were not making good contact with the WB's after first install. Very happy now:)

    Craigleberry, did you have a Noctua NH-D14 or am I thinking about someone else?

    If you did what are your opinions between it and the Thermalright?

    Never owned a Noctura heatsink. But I was not impressed with the base on my IFX14. it was very lumpy and needed to be lapped. :laugh: EDIT I should add that just because my IFX-14 had a shitty base on it does not mean they all do. Overall it is a pretty good performing heatsink. But if I had the option back when I purchased this one I would have got a Promaliatech Megahalems. But they where not made back then.

    Filters still kill flow. Even with killer fans, you will get better cooling without filters.

    And I use Yate loon Mediums. At 70cfm, they aren't monstrous, but they aren't low flow either. And with 7 of them in my Stacker, they move plenty of air. Using the filters raises my temps.

    I really liked the looks of the pedestal that Erocker was considering, so I threw one together this afternoon, between gluing up things for clients. A few more coats of paint and lacquer, put hinges on the door, and I'll be ready to move my 3.120 and pump into their own little appartment.

    Why would you want 6x 5.25" bays just how many burners and fan controllers do you need LOL as for the rest it sounds like a really good setup

    you can fit HDD's in them too. 3x 5.25 can take 4x 3.5" drives and a 120mm fan to cool them.

    true but wouldn't you still be able to do that on standard 3.5" drive bays 120mm fans fit perfectly over the the bays anyways and 10 HDD bays would be better

    some people like reservoirs in the drive bays, and if youre going for a heavy dual loop then i would say you would go with 2 oif the dualslot res' :)

    and then there is a burner, a FC, maybe some other stuff and what not
