  1. That's exactly what I thought. It would make next to no sense that fans pushing air directly through the fins acting as air canals wouldn't be a good cooling solution.
  2. But I don't think anyone has ever tested one directly over three 180mm penitrator fans. They should push lots of air between the fins that are in vertical orientation
  3. I'll look at the models you linked this evening. I spent 3 hours after work last night looking for motherboard files to insert, but they either weren't free, weren't the right file, or weren't the right size. Since I couldn't find that I didn't really look for other parts. The psu is elevated just to make it a little closer to the components. The case is 680x300x580mm. I don't care how big it is, I like big cases, the parts can breath well and the 180 penitrators can throw air very far, so it's not a problem. The support is simply there for reinforcement. The large me
  4. Fusion 360 is a lot more cumbersome than sketchup, you can't just sit down and start making stuff. It took me many tries, watching many videos, and asking many questions before I was able to make something. But it is a lot more detailed than sketchup. That was my main problem I was running into sketchup with. But everything worked out in the end, I also found a new hobby. Sadly those sketchup files dont work in Fusion 360, nor can I find any good free ones for 360.
  5. Thank you for your kind words. I actually started making the design in sketchup back in January, but I kept getting into trouble with the design. In my research I came across many people not recommending sketchup and instead recommended fusion 360. After about 6 or 7 failures and restarting over from scratch, I have finally become a little comfortable in 360 and was able to design that. That screen grab is a few days old, and I am happy to report that I have almost finished the entire design. All I have left to do are a bunch of small things, like fan controller placement, hdd/ssd
  6. I've actually been teaching myself CAD and designing a case in my spare time because silverstone won't release new cases that come close the ft-02. Not that I'd ever be able to afford having the case made that I am designing, but I can always dream right. It's 300mm deep with a psu side and motherboard side. 3 180mm intakes and a 120 exhaust directly over the cpu. The psu side will have room for 2 420 rads and the bottom intake area has enough room for a 540 rad sandwiched by 180mm fans. If'n I'd ever go the water route
  7. Yes, that's the worst case scenario, and not very likely, given upgrades. But it also a distinct possibility. But, without a doubt, airflow isn't just a bullshit marketing buzz word
  8. Please do not give advice, if you don't know much about the topic. Airflow is essential to your computer. There needs to be plenty of intake and area to eject the intake. Take one of those away or have inadequate of either and you have a poor case. Your performance will suffer and worse yet, your parts run the possibility of not lasting as long. As for recommendations, I personally like silverstone cases and they have a few micro atx offerings
  9. Yeah, I picked up a pair of Amazon for around 20 dollars. I currently have stalled on my creative thinking. But when I get back to it, I'll keep those measurements in mind. I'm kind of thinking that the hole needs to be as large as the threads, I don't really recall the screw being able to begin tightened in the case by itself.
  10. Thank you for your detailed reply. I'll have to look for a set of those calipers
  11. 5.4 and I think they wouldn't bite well and bend the mount. But going too much smaller would run the risk of not fitting. I wonder what the sweet spot is... Thank you for your time.
  12. I knew they were self tapping, thus had a completely different thread pattern, but I just didn't know how much bigger. I did a Google search, after asking (sorry), and it said the same thing. But Google didn't yield any good results about how big the actual case holes, where the screw passes through to hold the fan to the case, are. Do you have any idea the standard diameter of the case hole is for fan mounts?
  13. So what is the theta of the case hole for case fans?
