AddRAM,
The new gear is going to run smokin well in that case. if it was me I would still run the Corsair pulling air from inside and exhausting or try it both ways to see which gives the best performance. I've found that good micro filters will slow air substantially through the rad. IMHO its better to have quiet powerful air flow and clean more regularly then to constantly cleaning the filters especially in the back or bottom that rarely get checked.

Are you kidding me, I`m gonna clean it once a week whether it needs it or not lol

I`m still on the fence about which rad to get, but I really like the Intel model.

Good point though, with all the fans I got in this thing, hot air is not an issue at all.

Exactly and in a properly large case with good fans creating good air flow from the front low point and exhausting at the top and rear creates the best flow....IMHO.

Yep off the board. I did some cable management on mine. When I removed the usb3 cord the whole header came of the board. Very tiny pins and my reading glasses still were not enough to realign those pins. I still have it, thought about getting a magnifying glass but haven't wasted the effort as it was only for two posts on the top of my case. I still have the ones on the back and all my usb sticks and external hd's are usb2 so it wasn't priority.

Ya, you gotta have your thumb on it holding it securely when you push the cable in, then don`t touch it again. That`ll be something I hook up last. Thanks for the heads up
