Jack, you may check, but I've always thought the PSU fan was intake and blows hot air out of the back of the case. Positive air pressure is very good. I have all my fans as intake except the rear exhaust. It works well for me. That ram is what I'm using as well as several others here. It's very good ram, as far as I'm concerned. Great build though. I wish I had the money for a 2011 build. But it's a little rich for me right now. Maybe a little later though. Also, if you get energetic, would you measure how far from the top fans on the bottom of your rad to the top of the motherboard. Your Rad is 46mm thick and your'e running push/pull. My rad is 66mm thick and I don't have a case I can run push/pull. I was hoping that case would do it. It looks like you have a good space in there. I would need right at 1" more than you do. My Switch 810 and the HAF X are both about 5 or 6 mm too short. I always get the VRM and the ram in the way. If you don't feel up to it, don't bother. I'm getting the case either way Already ordered as soon as Amazon gets them in.

Thank you for taking care of my brain fart. I don't know what I was thinking.
All power supplies blow out the back where the cord attaches. At least all I have ever seen.
Took care of the problem by putting the filter back where it should be by the power supply and took the one from the other 2 fan area on the same side panel and used it on the back.
Another thing I would like to see this case have is a push button of some sort to remove the side panels.
I have had my side panels on and off several times.

As for the room for push/pull their is about a 1 1/2 from the fans
I have installed to the ram. I held a 120 mm fan in a push/pull and there was about 1/2 in. to the ram.
The radiator sits in the case far enough to the glass panel side that the fans will drop down and leave about 3/8 in. between the side of the fan and VRM.

I do believe you could install the second set of fans under the top cover. I used a 120mm fan that measures 1 in. thick and put it in all 3 positions under the top cover and it the cover would shut with no bulge and no extra pressure.

Jack that is an awesome looking build mate! Tidy cabling on the "dirty" side of the case too.
I'm with Steve on the Trident X RAM, I have a 16GB set and it is fast.

An antiperspirant would help.

Looking for opinions on this PC.
My desktop PC is getting on in years - it's a 3GHz P4 I bought back in '05 or so. I've got a good NVidia card in it and 3G of RAM, and there's still quite a bit it can do, but it really is starting to cause me some headaches. I'm in the market for a new desktop, and in my shopping around, I've come...
