Thoughts about this potential Shinobie XL mod.........

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I am not in any way a Photoshop expert..lol. I am thinking about modding the XL when its released. I would like to mod the front with possibly (4) 120mm fans. I would use the top grill as a starter template for the front grill. Any thoughts suggestions?

I think 4 120mm fans might be pushing it. You can fit 1x 120mm in the top 3 5.25 bays and I reckon 2 more where the 230mm fan is. That'll leave 2x free 5.25 slots which isn't enough space for another 120mm fan. I like the idea of the mesh front and the big window though, maybe bring the window back a bit though to hide the 5.25 and hdd bays though.

Thanks for the advice, I will move the window back to cover the fan area. I am thinking about removing all of the 5.25 bay area as I have no need for it. I might possible install a Lamptron fan controller but I am not sure exactly how that will work. My main concern is the soft touch material on the outside of the case. I just hope this doesn't powder up or crack when cutting it with a Dremel.

I'd check around and see what people have done with their Bitfenix Colossus cases. It has the same soft touch material on it.
