With the introduction of the tempered glass side panels, adequately cooling high-performance components in the DA2 can become a challenge if not properly considered as airflow from the side panels is no longer available.
To offset this airflow restriction and give additional cooling potential we have created an alternative design for the upper/lower acrylic panels that not only allows for increased airflow but also provides additional fan mounting slots. These allow 120/140mm fans to be mounted directly to the acrylic panels (with the included rubber mounts), removing the requirement for the horizontal brackets. This has the additional benefit of saving 14mm of space, so if combined with low profile fans, provides a huge boost to cooling without compromising typical component placement.
The included PVC NETs feature larger holes for reduced airflow impedance, further improving performance cooling.
