    I keep holding back on the SSD because I always hope for something new to happen. And HDD is for that plus backup. Planning to make it a HTPC, but for now I don't really have a role for it. XP Also added another fan when I bought the case.

    hah it works better with just one fan on the rear panel, but switching my rear spacer from 25 to 38mm made a big difference, made the phtc12dx more of a push pull
    I think it flows better with the single based on my very unscientific hand in the airstream test metric.

    So now I am running just the single 38 +25 spacer on the front of the phanteks and the single 38+38 spacer on the rear exhaust of case.

    I think you may need to change that 'some' to 'most' haha.

    Amazing stuff, I don't know how you can put up with the noise though!

    fan controller ;)
    edit: yeah the extra 13mm on the rear fan (bringing it closer to the phanteks) helped with a couple degrees!

    Prime 95 max temp 72 now for 4.5 ghz 1.24v

    Optimally I'd cut a hole in the back of the case and just run push pull straight out the back

    I bought some plasti-dip or rather the h0b0 equivalent because of being $10 cheaper. Anyway, I plasti-dipped the plastic parts of the front and top grills on my Air 540;

    I found it difficult to get a smooth finish because the paint kept running down the sides because of the diagonal edges on each column. But I'm pretty happy with the result!

    Removed mesh from plastic;

    Taped up the case badge as I didn't want to bend it trying to pry it off and here is the first coat;

    5 coats later and here is the finished product;

    Looks very nice. Did you just do the grill? If so the color match looks pretty decent.

    Thanks yeh just the plastic part of the grill - front and top. I was actually surprised at how closely matched the colour was. The texture/finish is almost a match too. I was trying to get the look of the Air 240 on my Air 540.

    "old school" speakers lol I had those back in the day .. in 2004 IIRC lol
    cheap and they sounded just great for tang ban drivers in small plastic housings... The damn speaker with the knob was such a PITA because the cable was so short.
