    With my chosen method, my Sunon fan blows 42.5CFM air over the hard drive and also aids in the overall airflow of the case. :)

    Yes. Check out the review of the Antec PLUS1080 case and you'll see it. Both front fans are filtered.

    Yes, I see that. I think that particular solution is the best for HD cooling if your case allows it.

    Thats exactly how i have mine...but with HD coolers as well...but there is really no need for both and prolly perfer Darth's example out of the two options.

    The reason why i have both is because i didn't know much about the case's interior and didn't know that fan was located where the drives went...two hd's can be setup there and get cooled very well tho the purpose of the case cooling part forget it... since two hd's on there will block the airflow to the rest of the case.

    Both front fans are filtered.
    Actualy Darth, the Filter does not even come close to covering the top fan completely. The upper third of the fan is left unfiltered, not to mention the entire filter is a horrible design which leaves a 5mm gap ALL the way around the filter, so when even when the filter is clean, most of the air rushes around it, not to mention, when the filter gets slightly dirty the air will completely stop going through it and therefore defeat the purpose of the filter. Not only not filtering the air, but acting as a barrier to the air.

    Did you not see this when you were writing your review? You should go back and add it in, along with a few pictures of the culprit. I know you haven't used filters much in the past, so you probably weren't inspecting it like you would if you had made it yourself. But don't take offense, no other reviewer noticed it either.

    A filter by simply how it works, restricts air flow. Therefore, it can only be effecive if a seal exists. If a seal does not exist, the air will find the path of least resistence, and go around.
