My problem was that i couldnt get air into the front of the case because the "eyes" of my raidmax ninja case blocked all air ways. also, i was short on cash. My first step was clearing the cluttered wires from the case for better circulation.

Second was trying to figure out a way for more air from the front to get to the back.

My Solution: I bought some pretty inexpensive round cables for my DVD drive and floppy, and tucked the power cable to mobo behind the mobo on the other side of the case.

For the second step, i took out 3 bay plates, added an 80mm fan hot glued to hard drive cooler w/ a custom cut metal screen for dust and the hard drive cooler(3 tiny fans and on low) itself that was just so the air from the 80mm on top of it could breeze in. I also drive small holes in the bottom of the case and in the front panel behind cover and added a 120mm on bottom front. For lighting, i changed the side and back fans with blue led and used a UV pen mod on the side view.



Finished product:
Lite Photo of side-it looks messy from the side view but the cords are away from the middle air passage.
