  1. i mean with some modes you could make em work, the XIGMATEK OVERTAKE all you would have to do is move the fans to the inside instead of the out side then you have massive space. i did find a work around would be to revers flow so in top, back bottome and out the front. other cases were the glass is sealing the front you would need to extend the bolts so there's a gap in the front.
  2. well if it were me ied put a 120 in the top in the bay in the front and 2 on the bottom but that's just me. and if your crazy like me could add one to the pci slots....i have done this....
  3. hmm now that you pointed them out i see it now haha....
  4. so i found a few different cases and whats your thoughts on them. also if you got some cases post em. XIGMATEK OVERTAKE abkoncore RAMESSES 850 abkoncore RAMESSES 780 abkoncore TENGRI 650 talius eviathan Segotep Phoenix redragonzone ironhid
  5. ya i no some cases are ridicules hi price. i my self really liked the antec lanboy sadly i never got one...maybe one day. i had a thing for as much 5.25 bays as posable and ended up buying a Xigmatek Elysium case so i could add rads in it. and i loved orange fans.....
  6. ya there's just something about old cases and how cheap there are. perfect for modding. i have an antec 1200 that i was thinking on re doing the side window but don't no its heavy modded all ready. one think i hate about it is the top. just collects dust.
  7. if you want each strip to have its own control you have to attach it to its own channel if you want it to got from strip 1 then to strips 2 then to strips 3 you run the together so data out to data in. if you want all th cope each other then all the data in are connected together and data out is unused.
  8. and i thought my build was nuts haha gj. hey why not 90 degree the mb? or you got plants for the gpu? putting some 180mm air penatrators would be cool. but hey if you already got the fans then w/e haha.
  9. no the 3pin is 5v and the 4 pin is 12v. there no way from going 4pin 12v device to 3pin 5v controller. but there is the other way around.
  10. ya i cant remember whats better for dust with a rad i think its pull. or just build that case right in the first place haha
  11. there's nzxt, corsair, asus, thermaltake, aquacomputer, and cooler master but there stuff suxs.
  12. if you only have rgb on the mb and want argb you have to use an usb controller. there is a convertor that can go form rgb mb to argb davice but it turns the argb davice in to rgb. there also problems with it as well. you can buy an argb /rgb back plate from jmod
  13. your right it should be cheap but when its the bottom line every cost counts so you are paying for it weather you want or need it or not. they are going to pitch to you that you need it want it. that's marketing look at j2cents video about fills rig were he got a air flow front panel came with a mesh that made it pointless in the first place.
  14. ya a big part of pcs about looks over performance. but you want cheap performance just go open air....
  15. 90 degree mb are the best for air temps but like i said there often look weird, and costy. also some cube cases like the tt core x5 /x9 were good all the aire just out the top and fresh air from the bottom and sides and back
  16. oh like front glass and back of mb filterd like bequiet case to make thing easier just tell me the case name haha
  17. you talking about like corsair cases were there a top glass panned then a gap the a filter?
  18. a vertical gpu will allow for the bottom fans to be more useful for the mb and cpu. hands down a 90 degree mb the best you can get but there not many of them, they offen look weird, or are costly. i remember a case were the mb was centered in the case so you could have air from the bottom, both sides and out the top. it may have even been a 90 mb. it may have been a evga case... in Win 909 case it was
  19. ya that's true i guess for thows fanless builds air can just flow to the top and out.
  20. well we no that any filter going to decrees performance that just clear that up. and 99% cases now uses temperd glass so that kills the need for a side. but side will help gpu temps and maybe even cpu hmm
  21. hmm this gets me thinking that we may have been seeing cases and the front panel problems were there little space for air to get in and a filter (there are case that do have good front intake and a solid front panel so keep that in mind but cheap case normally don't) intake form the top, bottom (if you can) and out the front may solve problems.... of air flow that is. the gpu wont be dumping air at the cpu instead it be drawn to the front. even if you intake from the back and out the top and bottom out the front (just might need to add a filter to the back fan)
  22. oh i think i kinda understand about sucking the gpu air thew the top rad i get it now haha i guess if you have an aio /wc gpu this be less of a problem or do i dare say it a blower fan gpu.... my question is what are the temps if you intake from the top and bottom and out the front? and disable the back fan or block it off with cardboard. i no lots of cases block the front and give little space for the fan and on top of that a filter.
  23. if taking hot air inside the case thew the rad and out the top even its hotter air i still think it be cooler then intake air from the top thew the rad and out the back i guess. but i don't really no so a answer would be nice. to no. people will be people they pick up traditions form people never finding out the real answer. i too thought in front out the top is the norm but now i question it...
  24. i no this.... im not saying cold air form out side though the rad is a bad idea its a good idea when even you can do it. but in this case you take intake form the top to make your rad cooler at the same time your cpu, mb and top of gpu would get hotter. lets say that the revers air flow might not make a difference so we ill exclude that. i guess if you really want to you could intake form the top, intake from the bottom and out the front i guess but no cases come with a back fan filter so guess just don't use it...hmm this could even be bitter then the tradition way...
  25. give me one scenario were intake from the top is better then exhaust and ill let it go.
