Ive noticed there now seems to be 2 version of this case, on with a meshed side panel and one with a regular see through plastic window panel. Almost sure i read on here somewhere that with the meshed window the temps are higher for some reason or other. I would have though the opposite myself though. :confused:

They are higher, as the flow of air through the case on the meshed version is not as good, as the air 'leaks' out of the mesh, rather than flowing over the components.

Was thinking that but thought the dual 120mm fans at the rear would pull some air in from the mesh direction. :confused:

Think ill get the windowed version then.

I've got the window version which i got because i think it would cut down on some of the noise that my graphics card makes. I also like to see my pc's guts ;)
