    OP; how did you seat that fan in the optical drive bay?

    Well it's been a long time since I've been on here and have a few changes that were just made. I first went from the 580 then to a EVGA 1070 ftw and just yesterday I went to a Asus strix oc 1080 ti. I also removed all drive bays from the front of the case and temporarily mounted my hit swap hdd cage down on the floor. It works for now until I can upgrade to z270 with all nvme and ssd drives. Once the drive bays we're removed I mounted another 230mm fan in it's place. So now I am running 4 230mm case fans and one 140mm in the rear (which I actually don't feel I need).
    I will post pics in a bit.

    Max temps during benchmarks was 59°c before I installed the second fan up front.
