Actually, four months of research into what I wanted my case to look like seems like enough, but you know, maybe I should have gone a full ten? And I am not doubling back, I am simply answering your questions. If I remeber correctly, you said the shield was going to diminish air flow, because the shield would block air from being pushed OUT. This is where I corrected you in saying that the air was being sucked in, for the fans I was clearly talking about were in the front. Then you talked of how my vacuum was flawed, then once again I replied, knowing that I would not have a full force vacuum, but something of the sort. You see, my fans anyway will create this sort of a vacuum, because there are 2 80s that suck air in for the case(the other sucks air to a thermal hood to my cpu), which from my research should be pulling in around 58-60 cfm. My 2 120s on the top will be pushing out around 120 cfm (58-60 for each fan), creating a vacuum EFFECT, but not a true vacuum. The shield is merely for aesthetics, not to create a vacuum, which is why I said the shield will be .5-1" off the case, so it would not interfere with airflow as much as it would being <.5" away. You see, even without the shield, there will be a vacuum effect, because there is a deficit between the 120 duo and the 80 duo, by about 60 cfm. This is where the vacuum is created, the shield just hides those ugly fans up front. And yes, there may be a tad bit of poor airflow, but this can be solved by purchasing another fan to put in the front to even out the cfm deficit, preferably an 80, so there would only be a 30 cfm difference. What ever the case, I don't care if you think that this will have poor airflow, because I have already tested it once, and got the temp in the case to below 20 degrees celsius. My case now that has 3x 80s just in the back has a temp on the inside of around 30 degrees celsius, so post however much you want because frankly, I dont care.
