    Quiet case with good airflow? Is the Meshify the best option?

    The one area where Corsair is definitely top of the industry right now is hardware control via software. iCue and the rest of their SW for controlling fans and RGB is beyond what anyone else has. Just a shame it's so ridiculously expensive. Won't be touching it for a while yet, until it costs...

    Quiet case with good airflow? Is the Meshify the best option?

    Would a 360 even fit in the front ? I mean, physically sure, but would the holes for push fans all line up? Doesn't seem like it, a 360 would have the same rad bump that your 240 does, so it's still nearly misinformation that they claim such support. And it really isn't your fault, at all. The...

    Wow, glad I don't buy Fractal cases often anymore, their QC and design really seem lacking. Your rad barely fit even when slide to the absolute Bottom of the top two 120mm intakes spots, which forced the weird mounting of lowest 120mm intake. That's just Terrible design. They should actually...

    Quiet case with good airflow? Is the Meshify the best option?

    Gotta disagree with @Bond007, sorta? The only Real problem with excessive negative pressure /too much exhaust fans is overwhelming the intake and drawing in air from the case from strange places - which normally aren't filtered. So you *could* go with the new plan no problem, but the only real...

    Quiet case with good airflow? Is the Meshify the best option?

    Ahhh silly rads... Those extra bumps are the bane of so many builds. Silly Q perhaps, but does the 280 AIO rad work with the inlet/outlet at the bottom? Aka, let the rad bump overhang the last bottom intake fan? I'm assuming there's no room for the rad bump at the top... Alternatively, and...

    Help? Suggestions for side work & a future.

    @JD not bad, but again I don't think the service would allow a flexible-enough schedule for me. My sleep patterns are all over the place, irregular, and often listless. Since covid I'm sometimes only able to sleep after 5-6am for a few hours, then maybe an hour or two after dinner. TL;DR...

    Help? Suggestions for side work & a future.

    Over the phone tech support isn't a terrible idea. So I guess I'll look around for some info on it and to see if there are any opportunities. The problem with the it though, is scheduled. I don't know if so can work a regular set of hours anymore, even if they're very small. A if the...

    Help? Suggestions for side work & a future.

    @On2wheels I did tech support for friends and family for over a decade, but can't anymore. I can be in pain from a long drive over too many potholes, so I really think that finding something I can do from home will be necessary in my situation. @Izerous Similar to your stepdads situation, if...

    @supaflyx3 interesting suggestions, I'll look into it but I'm not sure if I'm fully comfortable with those types of ... Things. The fact that cryptocurrency is involved makes me even more cautious about it. @chrisk I am seeing people for depression, and have been for a long, long time. I also...

    Backstory: In the next few days I'm going to be evaluated for medical retirement. I've been off work 2.5 years, living almost insurance paycheck to insurance paycheck. But once the decision comes down, my income on medical retirement will drop a bit as well. I'm not sure exactly how much yet...

    A hero has fallen - RIP John Fleming aka Soullessone21

    The world in 2020 is so very hard to live in. Every single day is a struggle. It's a nightmare. Soul was a good person. But the best people often get hurt the most. Condolences.

    Quiet case with good airflow? Is the Meshify the best option?

    Push pull is always best IMO, but if you don't have the fans, just push I'd say. The hot air flopping out of the back of the 240 AIO will get dragged out of the case super fast by all the exhausting fans. The only other thing I'd suggest is: build it and try it. Play with fans speeds and fan...

    Quiet case with good airflow? Is the Meshify the best option?

    That photo? Nope. You forget that rads are restrictive and 140s push a lot more air at lower rpm than 120s. So 2x 140mm intakes vs 1x 140mm and a 2x240mm rad probably equals balanced at best, or possibly positive air pressure, depending on how hard you ran the AIO fans. It's even possible that...

    Quiet case with good airflow? Is the Meshify the best option?

    Just remember that if you do stick with the S2 and add more intakes, there stills needs to be either A) even more exhaust fans or B) the exhaust fans run much faster. You're trying to pull air out of the case fast, but too much intake will mess up the flow. Balanced airflow isn't bad per se, but...

    Quiet case with good airflow? Is the Meshify the best option?

    Yep, just like that. But don't forget the one added, clean/cool air fan at the bottom of the front panel. That's an intake for GPU. The only downside that i can see to this idea is not fully utilizing triple 140 intakes. But on the positive side: any hot air from the AIO will get dragged out...
