maysito:
i'm curious why in your antec 900 why you moved the two hd cages up to the top and the optical drive to the bottom. does that help with temps and airflow?

Some people do it because it's easier for them to access the drive there

I think the airflow is better this way, the upper fans go direct to the tuniq and breathemetal is also right, its easier for me to access the dvd drive .

PS thanks for the comment breathemetal

Welcome, you have a nice rig. I love the case. My backup rig rests in that case. I love it. But im still partial to my massive NZXT Zero.

4x120mm side fans
1x80mm top fan
2x120mm rear fans
1x120mm front fan

Unplug the fans. that's about the only way to do that on the 900's.

hmmmmmmm... I'm thinking that I'll do that to my case as well. That's a really good idea. Especially now that I've gotten rid of that monsoon II cooler that requires a front bay to operate, I can now move everything way down. That will help tremendously with wire management too.

Just personal taste, but no I'm not a fan of the led fans. Nice rig though.
