i bought this case for the advertised GREAT revolutionary airflow...although revolutionary, it cant cool squat lol....at least with what i comes with, i was wondering if anybody could help me find more spots for fans or anything else that could increase the airflow in this case (already upgraded to non-stock fan on top)

using speedfan it is reading over 50C as a case temp...i have to open the case sometimes to cool off......thats y i need help cuz i dont want to have to rebuid the pc in a new case....time consuming and pricy


Thanks!

Probably too late for you to do it, seeing how it's up and running
The first thing I do when I get a new case is to cut out the built in grill(s) in the case to just one large hole
If it needs to be protected, I use a wire grill cover. It might not do anything be I believe it helps
Coolects a lot less dust anyways

The Raven's cooling ability is also only mediocre. Raising it higher off the desk, and giving the fan above the PSU greater access to cool air might improve this. It's an interesting design, but the fact is that the Antec Twelve Hundred provides better cooling, is easier to work inside and costs less.


On the contrary, other expert reviews stand by the Raven's EFFECTIVE cooling solution and claim that the stock setup will suffice.

So in your case, you could try replacing the other case fans.

BTW, are the CPU & GPU(S) temperatures normal? Better cooling solutions for them perhaps?

You could replace the stock coolers on the GPUs with something from Arctic Cooling or Zalman.
