Build went well. Case worked out great for cable management. Easy CPU cooler install. Love the motherboard thermal plating. Keeps it looking clean. The case, (Thermaltake Chaser- MKI) made installing the 240mm radiator for the H100 a breeze, fit perfectly on top for a push/pull fan configuration. Pretty much chews up every game I throw at it. Curious to see how it handles Battlefield 4 at max(if possible) Built Nov, 2012.

Switch that side panel fan to exhaust, your GPU is blowing hot air towards the fan but the fan is pushing the hot air back into the case.

Would it not exhaust out the rear with the 2x 80mm GPU fans? Plus the case includes the rear 140mm exhaust as well as 2x120mm / 2x200mm push/pull exhaust on top. Turning that one exhaust would limit me to one intake. But, then again, I'm not a "cooling expert". This is my most expensive/intricate build to date.

The type of GPU cooler you have doesn't exhaust outside of the case. It just blows all of the hot air out inside of the case, the reference cooler, however, blows the air right out the back of the case.

I recommend this airflow config. http://imgur.com/gLUE6xk The rear fan will pull air in so that the radiator gets plenty of cool air, and the front 200mm fan will bring in cool air for the GPU. The hot air from the GPU will be exhausted out the back, to the side, and to the side 200mm fan, which will obviously pull all the hot air from that half of the build.

Thanks! I'll give that a shot tomorrow when I have time to tinker. I'll also update 3D mark11 scores.

Thanks also djArtifact for input.

I meant to "save" this build when I completed it last November. Really did this for my archive purposes. Probably should have chosen a different name.

Yes. I have to air-dust this bad boy monthly. Interior doesn't get that bad as the case includes dust covers on fan panels.

Edit: original post /title updated
