Computer Case Modding help

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hi

Now I have Coolermaster Elite 335, which I like, it is a nice case, but my GPU chokes in there, without overlocking I get 75-80 celsius degrees.
Thats why I realised that Im going to build a new case for my PC parts...
I would be sorry if i would drill in my 335, since I dont have much experience with that type of work.

Thats why I found this old case at home and I would like to make it a good PC rig smile.gif

Actually it looks that way

here it is with dimensions, and with the area I would like to cut off

I would like to make it that way

450

But Im not sure about the top side

And that is how I hope it will look after the modding

The white arrows indicate airflow.

Yes I want to make another small case (indicated as a green box) for PSU and HDD, which would be situated under the case.

Yes and I want to spray it to black color smile.gif

But the only thing which concerns me is the length of this case - wont it be too short if there is 30cm GPU?

And Im also not so sure about the cable management.

Looking for constructive criticism smile.gif

Thank you very much in advance

Wont it be too short if there is 30cm GPU?
And should I put 1x 140mm or 2x120mm fans on the top side?
And how should I do the cable management?

Too complicated and with too many fans and alot of noise. You don't have to worry about where the direction the fan is blowing now because you can easily change the direction during the test. Simply unscew the fan flip it and screw it back.

 

Go for watercooling thumb.gif

 

 

Edit: Make it 35 cm.

Yes now I prefer watercooling too, but I wont buy a new watercooling, because my NH-U12P is just 1 month old, maybe when I'll find some buyer smile.gif
