Re: A Little House Keeping!!!

No what I meant is remove the side panel and take a pic of the setup from the side.
Its easier to recommend stuff.

Re: A Little House Keeping!!!

Your top fans are acting as intakes, as is your rear fan.

Top = exhaust, Bottom = intake. Regular people have their rear fans exhaust while front serves as intake. However, akS had a reverse setup. He had his rear as intake with his TRUE fan pulling in air ( it's pretty close to push-pull ) and top exhaust. He didn't upload the rest of his pc's innards though :S.

And wtf. Your side fan is an intake as well. Dude, you'll have terrible airflow. Where are your exhaust fans at?

I'd suggest.. Change both the top fans to exhaust, leave the rear fan and window fan as intakes.

As for cable management, you can go hardcore and get zip ties to tie up your cables or use electrical tape. Why not follow JD666's CM430 cable management thread?

You can coil the sata cables around a phallic object ( lolz ) to make them look like springs, but also look less ugly.

And can you not run your cables behind the case? My case was so neat before I got my 4670 that I could use wires to prop up fans on the mobo ( was OC'ing the onboard gfx so yeah ). I'll be doing some cable management myself tomorrow.

I'll be changing my rear fan to an intake cuz its closer to the CPU and it'll keep the processor cool, while the hot air exhausted from the cpu will go toward the PSU and exhausted out the back again. My 4670 has another 80mm fan pushing cool air toward it from the front of the case, but there's an unused open slot at the back for air to come out.

So change

Re: A Little House Keeping!!!

erm...the top fans are exhaust......the fans are placed like this:
top 2 and rear=exhaust
bottom,front and side panel as intake
for cable management i have gone hard core with zipties and all,tucked up all the messy fan cables in the floppy drive bay.....

more pics coming soon...now at college

Re: A Little House Keeping!!!

Lol.. The airflow always goes from the open side of the fan ( where people usually put grills ) to the fan frame ( which holds up the magnets ) Even if you look at your first pic, you'll see thats blatantly wrong :S

As long as youve patched it well, I dont see any problem with it.

Re: A Little House Keeping!!!

Erm, if you keep the pc on that stool and close the case, you'll have just the front intake fan..

And well, you need to route all the cables behind the drive bays if you can. Here's a pic of mine taken just now. I haven't even done any cable management yet.
