Project: Moar air and paint

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
This is a Lian li PC-k57W I'm modding. The plan was to add two 140mm fans on top. One as an intake and one as a blowhole. The overall goal was to better cool the case and make it a bit quieter. Also I figured since I was already taking everything out to cut it I mind as well paint it black on the inside and back.

Before:

After cutting and paint

Everything was very very close but I was able to get the fans to fit in.

This gives you an idea of how close the fitment was, this is the fan blade above the CPU power clip

Here it is now. I still have to paint the HDD bays and the clip on the PSU clamp.

Painting that primer grey is always one of the best case mod to do. Nice job on the fan cut out. Keep up the good work thumb.gif
