I actually tried it. I screwed up the first time. I bought another plexiglass for about 20 bucks and I am gonna try again. But I am not good with this stuff but I am going to try again. I really hope to replace it.

I decided to remove the lower portion of my HD cage to free up some more space and add a intake fan to my front panel -

Had to bore out these holes a little so i can thread some fan screws in -

Now that i see that i can fit a 120mm fan behind the HD cage i am going to add 2 of my older Antec blue led fan's there so i can get the blue affect from the front panel. I am also planning on adding about 6 more led strips to light up the case better and even more cable management.

I am loving the C70 builds i am seeing so far here it is with out a doubt a solid case overall and i love it.

Nice build.

But how come you attacked your case to get those thicker shorter screws in (bottom fan), when the longer screws that come with the case are whats supposed to be used for the fans and then, instead of mounting the fan inbetween the front of the case and removable front cover (where they're supposed to go), mounted it on the inside of the case?

Should have done it like this:

There is no point with a HD cage in the way because those have literally no airflow through them (bad design) but when not using them, it's the best place for them.

Let me know how you go with the LED strips. When we get around to it we will be putting some white ones in the case to light it up. Not sure where to put them though or how much light they give off, haven't used LED strips before.

Mounted 2 of my old Antec blue fans in the front for now but 1 fan's led's seem to be burning lighter then the other fan so i will replace both prob next week.

I emailed Corsair about purchasing more led strips with out actually purchasing the lighting link with it but i have not received a response yet.

Here is an example of the light they give off -

The led strips are very low profile and high quality so you will def be satisfied.

Excuse the quality as i am taking these pics with my iphone but they aren't coming out that great.

I liked the military style color scheme on the case but most of my hardware came out blue so i just followed that theme.

I could have went with black sleeved cables instead but i i can always change things up down the road..

Thanks for that.

How many strips did you use and where'd you put them? They put out a decent ammount of light. Looks great!
