You do realise both of those fans are blowing into the case dude? What you doing about airflow?

That is how the case is designed m8ey.

The rear fan intakes air and the front fan and psu exhaust it.

Airflow shouldnt be a problem tbh.

Air will come in bottom rear and escape front and top.

Should cool reasonably well. If it doesnt I can switch the rear fan to exhaust etc.

You'd have to when thinking about equalizing pressure, wouldn't u ?

Or u mean instead of an exhaust ?

Well lian li do, and I know it wont pull out a huge amount of air but every little helps I suppose.

Got a load of 6mm (afaik) P clips from maxw a while back, gonna run a load of those to keep the power cable extender in check

Might also shorten the power cable extender as it is really too long now I've relocated the socket.

Regards

Positive preasure is the best way to keep dust down and neg preasure for temps but then your pc becomes an even more efficient hoover

I think this build will end up nearly equal pressure wise- 3 restricted intakes (2x rad and one fitered) while it will have 2 fairly unrestrictive exhausts and the psu.

Another update.

Since I'm feeling really flash with a dremel atm I decided to f**k it and go ahead with cutting the window myself.

It has turned out well. It is but a hand file away from perfection.

This is the design stage- a small window that shows (and more importantly hides) stuff while looking good.



Woo more scrap alu!



And the resulting window cut



Regards
