800d 5.25" bay fan mod?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I'm looking to get into modding so this would be my first one. Pretty simple "I think".

So what I want to do is get some more air intake into my case. The only source of air coming in is from the bottom fan near the PSU. My H100 is mounted on the top and pushing air out. The fan on the back of my case is also pushing out.

I figure there should be some way for me to be able to get more air in by using my vacant 5.25" bays. Since I don't know much about modding I'm not sure about the tools that I would need to make this work or any accessories.

I would greatly appreciate any help that I could get or just any additional information about this.

I have 2x 120mm fans just sitting around that I would like to use.

or just use zip-ties to hold it in place & perforate your current 5.25 bay covers

Not sure that I would go with something like that, I mean I'm sure it works but we gotta have our cases looking nice But that thread that you linked is helpful. Thanks!

You can use 3 5.25bays to fit a nice 120mm fan in there
