Maybe you could just add some rubber to the side? Picture (Click to show)

No... I don't think that would look nice... I'm going to get another case I'm pretty sure.

I would also suggest not to put mesh on the fan as they will produce noise, just leave it open, but if you're using them for intakes a plastic filter will do, but that's just me.

Yes, these will be intakes. Although, ah hell, why not, I'll change it so that the rads are exhaust and the 80MM fans on the back are intake. I'll slap some small 80MM fan filters on them and then I just get the new case, take the half I need, cut two 120MM fan holes in it, slap a 120MM fan grill on it and call it a day. I think that would look pretty nice... ideas, ideas, ideas....

Hmm...I'm a VERY frugal person when it comes to modding...I think I mentioned this before in my past threads. Anyway...as for being frugal...NO! You're already into the final stages of the case mod, no need to get a new case...here's my solution:

 

1.) First of all from the images you have those 2 holes you did are in the bottom. Best solution I could think of is measure the length and width of the bottom of the case and get a blank piece of aluminum sheet and make the holes there. Then just secure the new bottom aluminum sheet with bolts.

 

You might get some ideas from this thread's mod. http://www.overclock.net/t/1060594/first-time-mod-cm690-ii

 

The solution is on the 9th post.

 

The red highlighted area is where you need to blot the entire aluminim sheet.

 

 

 

2.) Second as for the rubber u-channels, there's nothing wrong in a little bit of black accent that will ruin the look of the case. PM me and I'll reply with a good seller for you. (AFAIK e-bay links aren't allowed on OCN threads) Also IMHO and this is just me, those wire fan grills give the case a bit of a retro-look, but again that's just me.

Really liking how professional and neat the case is turning out, really inspiring me to do my own case mod.
Wouldn't mind building a case with a 2-3 rads.

That's from a G5 mod from tonymacx86.com

Well I found a guy selling a working G5 and the lowest he will take is $150 so I might take that offer. I can sell the working parts on eBay and easily make my money back.

If you could fit 3 radiators in a G5 case, you'd be my hero! Thanks for the comment! thumb.gif

Oh I wouldn't use a G5 case for a casemod. It's a nice case but personally not for me. I'd probably try to build a case from scratch, as cases never feel to satisfy me completely. and from there I would try to make it fit 3 rads, though with cooling like that I'd go all out of parts and right now I don't have the money for that. Plus I will wait how cooling advances in 2013-2014.

Also subscribed, bet it will be beautiful tongue.gif.
