Ya I noticed side panel front glass is quite hot to touch but that don't make sense cuz I got 16x fans in my case. I don't think side fan is a problem because the side fan is intake just like the front fans so it sould help the front fans.
I liked my z170 maximus extreme board more than my formula ix because the extreme had better spacing on the pcie slots
Maybe my fans are ****, I heard lot of bad stuff about those new corsair MLF fans.
XD what you mean with reduce my oc I don't think a small 100mhz on my 7700k would be considering a OC also voltage is un touched.*
PS custom fan curve thing only works when the software is running in background and I don't like many programs in the background, probably sould flash my gpus with custom bios and set my own fan curve in the bios, sadly there is no pascal bios editor yet**
