Sorry for the late reply. I ended up ordering the Corsair Obsidian 750D Dust Filter Kit from DEMCiflex and with that you're able to utilize all the pieces except the one for the front of the case that sits in front of the two fans.
The top, bottom, and two rear fan filters work great and I have had zero problems with the magnetic borders coming loose or sagging. Everything has stayed in place real well, even the bottom filter. The case itself comes with a filter for the PSU but leaves a large portion of the bottom open where I currently have two intake fans so I definitely needed a bottom filter for that area.
I would purchase this set again with no regrets. Also I believe when you order the standalone filters they all utilize the magnetic border for securing on to the case so if you ordered à la carte instead of the complete kit I'm sure you'll be fine. Good luck!
Sorry for the late reply. In my opinion and based on the temps I've been seeing in my case, utilizing just the three stock fans will be adequate for cooling especially if you're not doing any crazy OCing. The NH-D15S is a beast so your CPU is going to be just fine even with "only" three fans in the case.
Also, while the CPU cooler does come close to the rear fan I have it setup where cool air is being pushed and pulled in one direction (front to back) through the CPU cooler and out the rear fan. So in theory they all act in unison in getting the hot air away from the CPU and out the case.
So again in my opinion if you stick with the three case fans and put two up front for intake and one in the rear for exhaust, along with the fan(s) on the Noctua CPU cooler you'll be just fine. If you find out down the road you want to add more fans, like in the top portion, this case is so roomy that any extra fans is a 'breeze' to install. No pun intended. Good luck!
Good eye. I ended up purchasing eight fans (six 140mm & two 120mm) but ended up only using seven. The current setup is two 120mm fans in the bottom (intake), two 140mm fans upfront (intake), one 140mm fan in the rear (exhaust), and two 140mm fans up top (exhaust).
I had originally purchased the extra 140mm to swap out the stock CPU cooler fan, but it is not compatible with the cooler. I was considering placing a third 140mm fan up top above the drive bay but I figured seven fans on the case was enough...
I'm a total noob when it comes to water cooling and anything beyond an AIO from say Corsair or NZXT was just out of my league. For the next build I'll really have to sit down and do my homework on a custom loop. Its the obvious next step.
I was really on the fence about going with an AIO water cooler but just couldn't pull the trigger on it yet. Next build maybe. Other than the appearance, as the Noctua air cooler blocks most of the view of the motherboard, I have no regrets.
The monitor was pricey but well worth it. All I've heard is that once you go with an ultra wide monitor its hard to get anything else. I wholeheartedly agree. Thanks for commenting.
Those red vibration pads will definitely look great in the case as compared to the brown stock ones. Thanks for the link!
That's actually a removable dust filter held in place by magnets. The case has two other filters, one beneath the PSU and the other for the front two fans.
Very clean build. Love the color and cable management. I'm currently doing a build using the 750D and its an excellent full tower case with plenty of room. +1
Awesome looking build. Glad to see some people still running their rigs on air. +1
Just picked up an Acer X34 today for a new Kaby Lake build that's going to be cooled via a Noctua NH-D15S. Glad to hear you like yours.
Looking good. A very clean build with nice use of cable management. +1
I'm going with the 750D in my new build too. I'm glad to hear it's as roomy as everyone says and has plenty of space for good cable management.
Also picked up the Acer X34 and coming from a 24" monitor as well, I can't wait. Glad to hear you like it.
Glad to hear it's working out well. Thanks for the reply.
OK great news, thanks for the reply.
Appreciate the reply and info on the fans. You gave me some more decisions to make going forward. It never ends!
Refreshing to see a build without all the LED's and different colors. Very clean build. Well done. +1
How are those Corsair fans working out? Are they as "quiet" as advertised but still able to move some air fairly well?
Excellent, appreciate the reply. Big reason I was leaning towards the 750D was its cavernous interior and muted look on the outside. Thank you for reinforcing that decision. Happy gaming.
Yeah while researching your motherboard I found that in addition to the two M.2 slots it also has a third M.2 Socket (Key E) which supports M.2 WiFi cards. However considering I'll have an open PCI-E slot and after reading your review and recommendation on the Asus wireless adapater, I'm going to go that route.
Appreciate the response and again nice work on your build.
Very very clean build. Well done. +1
Looking to do a Kaby Lake build in the 750D soon using a similar Corsair AIO cooler. If I get it looking 1/2 as good as yours I'll be happy.
That really is the Red Dragon. Looks like it's on fire! +1
It looks like you replaced the stock fans in the Corsair cooler with some new ones. Were the stocks too loud or did you want the red LED's in those fans as well? Looking to put together a new Kaby Lake build in the 750D along with a similar Corsair AIO cooler.
Lookin good. +1
I'm considering using the Corsair 750D in my next build along with a similar Corsair AIO water cooler. With the radiator installed like you have it, is there any room left over to put a 120mm fan next to the radiator at the top of the case if you were to remove the top drive bay?
I'm planning on using this motherboard for a Kaby Lake upgrade and was going to use a Corsair AIO water cooler as well. What was the problem you were/are having with the h100i v2?
Lookin good. Really like the cable management and clean lighting. +1
What problems were/are you having with the cooler? Looking to use this same motherboard and a Corsair cooler on a Kaby Lake upgrade and am interested to hear your experience with the Corsair AIO cooler.
How is this motherboard working out for you? Putting together a Kaby Lake upgrade, from Bloomfield, and want to use this board and a Corsair AIO water cooler. Any problems mounting the H100i V2 on the board?
Very nice. I like the color scheme you have going on and well done on the cable management. +1
I'm looking to use this motherboard for an upgrade from Bloomfield to Kaby Lake and its nice to see it in a completed build. This board has 1x M.2 Socket (Key E) for use with a wireless network adapter. Like yourself I'm not looking to go SLI at the moment so I'll have an available PCI-E slot open.
Any other reason in particular why you didn't use that slot (M2) for the wireless adapter?
