Adding extra air cooling to Storm Enforcer

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
So I'm throwing around ideas to better the air cooling on my Enforcer. I love the case, but I wish it had more fan ports. Namely, I'm trying to figure out how to get better airflow at the graphics cards. I don't mind running the fans a touch high on them, as the noise doesn't bother me. What I have been curious about is the vertical port on the back of the case. I am wondering what fan I could attach there. I've seen it done, but I can't find the fans for the life of me. Any ideas on what fans those could be? Or what would be the best places to mod a couple more fans (140mm, doesn't bother me to dremel if needed)?

Not quite sure what you mean by the vertical port... Perhaps the "LAN party security slot?" Honestly, I wouldn't even bother with a fan there.

You could always remove the SSD mount and cut out a bottom fan intake (in between the PSU and HDD cage). As soon as I get my new gpu in next week this is a possibility for me; depending on temps that is. If I go ahead with it I will let you know how it turns out. You could also mount an additional fan in the top drive mounts for intake. If you're really hurting on temps then the haf 912 side panel with window and fan mount could be beneficial.

Yeah the security slot. If it's not worth it I won't bother. I was actually talking with someone in the other thread about mounting a fan down there and about the HAF 912 side. It's not bad in the case, I would just like the extra fans, mainly around the graphics cards. I thought about adding a fan in the drive bays but i use it to keep a couple cables. I'm gonna look into the HAF side as that sounds like the best option. Though definitely let me know how the fan on the bottom turns out. Thanks for taking the time to answer!
