My opinions so far on my 750D

#1 Posted by TDuiker (11561 posts) -

I just got a 750D, and i allready got a few gripes with it. some fo wich i was allready aware off, and maybe some not.

The front intake is narrow, its clearly designed for 120mm fans, if you stick in 140mm fans, the case panels are covering some of the fans airflow, wich i dont like. Corsair is also kinda forcing you to use there screws for front fan mounting. because there are no standard fan screw holes with wich you can also use rubber grommets for mounting fans. instead there is a narrower hole with thread in it.

I also dont like the fact that theres fan positions on the front bottom, wich are unfiltered, they are actually under the drive cages. Its goign to be kinda hard to keep positive pressure in the case, also because of narrowed intake. So these bottom meshes are going to suck up dust, since my pc sits on the floor..

That's why I always recommend on the R series.

Just make a filter yourself?

Weird that the 550D has a dust filter for the fans in the bottom, and the 750D does not.

Well i have several screw on filters, and the PSU actually does have a filter, but theres 2 fan positions on the bottom aswell wich dont.

I have plastic filters from NZXT i believe, i also have generic alloy filters.

Im not going to put fans there, im more inclined to just block them off entirely, by mean of (im thinking) a filter in combination with a drive cage base.

If you're not going to put fans on the bottom of the case, just block them with some duct tape or something

I was actually thinking exactly the same thing just now LOL. I got some black electrical tape, that i think would be perfectly suited for this aplication..

Well blocking them also works if you are not going to use them.

I have absolutely no intention of using a bottom intake, so i just cut some pieces of paper to size, and used the electrical tape to seal it off.

I was afraid i didnt have enough of the tape, so i used the paper to seal the majorety of the meshes.

How often do you look at the bottom of your pc .. lol
