Corsair 500r Hard drive cage mod

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
So i decided to change stuff in my pc in term of getting better air flow and better cooling, one thing i made was remove the 2 hard drive cage since they block some air flow .

place the cage in the drive bay since im only using one slot for my dvd drive

700

now i get a little more air flow toward my video cards smile.gif
