New Coolermaster Elite 310 Super Mod Project.

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hey guys, here is my Project.
Instead of Going with a new case like the CM 690ii Advanced, I opted to go the Modder route with my Elite 310 case.
I will be creating a work log as soon as I get the case.
My other one was basically ruined by me over-modding it, but Now I've learned what I need to do correctly.
So I have put alot of thought into this mod, especially the airflow. I have decided on this type of configuration using all 120mm fans
550

For this mod, I will cut the HHD cage so that only 2 slots are available. I dont plan on going RAID. I just want room for 1 hard drive and an SSD later on down the line.

The bottom fans will be dual 120mm Coolermasters, along with an LED fan in the front bezel. I also have room for another 120mm fan in the 2 empty 5.25 quarter bays above . And It will be hiding a Lamptron FC4 fan controller.

The Very Top Exhaust fan will be a challenge to fit, but I think I found a solution. Scythe makes low profile 120mm fans that are only 12mm wide instead of 25mm. That will save me some space up top. 400
I have found a very simple yet effective case mod that will allow me to run cables at the back of the mobo tray. Its super cheap and highly effective.
I also plan on either powder coating the case or spray painting it myself. Pain in the ass though, really.
But I think with the Intake fans all the intake fans at low RPM with the Exhaust fans a slight bit higher, the case will remain cool, even as I OC the CPU, with a CM Hyper 212 CPU cooler in Push Pull configuration. Let me know how you all think of my future mod. Any suggestions will be appreciated.

the fan under the ssd and hdd wouldn't it be overkill, there is one already cooling it down. put it near the pci slots

Well said,I think I can position both fans a bit more centered. That way I can cool the ATI HD 6870 I have.
