Yes Gary, it's a paulpicks21 specialist modification, it draws cool air in from the front strait through and gets sucked out the top and back of the case.

Not that I'm an expert in cable routing, but in cabling, the shortest distance between 2 points is not always a straight line.

You also asked about fans. I believe in positive air flow. More intake fans than outtake fans. All of the pcie cut outs and a lot of the back of the case is made to allow for airflow. Positive air pressure uses those to push air and dust out. Negative air flow uses them to pull air and dust in. Tests have shown that positive air flow reduces dust by 30%. It also pushes hot air out while bringing cooler air in. Even the U S Navy, because of chemical warfare, have all their ships with positive air flow, to push any chemicals out of the ship. Silverstone has a good explanation of it. All of my fans are intakes except the rear fan.

@Andrew
Here's a couple of pic's of the rig i built my daughter, The case has absolutely nothing in the way of cable management features except one hole near the psu so i had to get busy with the cable tie's. If you put an hour or so into it you can get it pretty tidy

Andrew those cables restricting airflow may well be a factor in the high temps you mention on the temp thread you started.

Your probably right.

But it still makes me wonder though why my water cooler was mad cold at first, and now its back to the same old same old. I mean it does not make any sense. If the cables are a problem, it would be consistent problem. It wouldn't be cool and then go to hot.

At least I think. I don't know.

Tell you what, I'll spend a hour or two today and try to get it tidier

Probably better in the long run anyway. Thanks guys. I'll attempt to get 2 people to close the back side of the case haha.

ganjiry, considering what you had to work with (the case) you did an excellent job. I don't see any options to do it much better other tha a modular PSU. But, even with that, you have few ways of bringing cables back in the case.

Cheers Steve
It was the build i did for my daughter last xmas.
It was a pretty good case to work with considering the amount of hiding place's it didn't have lol. The psu was the only thing i didn't test when i built it( i just overlooked it) but recently found it's only putting 10v out on the 12v rail so it needs rma'ing. Hopefully i can get Corsair to sort the shipping again otherwise it will be cheaper to just replace it

Andrew, with water, when you first start up, your water is at room temp so the temps are cooler. After a few minutes with the water absorbing the heat from the CPU, the water heats up. Once the water heats up you are trying to cool your CPU with already warmer water, so it does not absorb as much heat from it and therefore your temps go up. That is why. The radiator can cool your water down to some degree, but it will never cool it down to ambient temps (room temp). That's why the temps go up after a few minutes. I hope that explanation makes sense. But, it's the same with air too, just water absorbs temps better than air, but the principle is the same. With air, once the computer has been running, the heat builds up inside the case, so you are using warmer air to try to cool the CPU, and it won't absorb as much heat.

Thank you very much for the explanation. That makes sense. Durp. I kinda feel dumb now

So question then, I am running at stock at 4.0 GHZ (4.2) with turbo. How in the world do people overclock then? Especially this chip? I know someone who is running this at 5.5ghz.
I don't know what their temps are though...
I mean jeez, the temps now I have are sometimes really bad.
