probably the easiest would be to change the window you have for a solid window. or to cut out the dirve cages for a radiator up front. the second option ahs been done by someone either in this thread or in the carbide owners club and looked legit! good luck and be sure to post pics or any more questions if you have them thumb.gif

you said you have the windowed version?

pretty much either way you will need to have a dremel tool, some sand paper, ruler, painters tape, pencil etc.

if you wanna know or see how i did it then go towards the begining of this thread and the steps i used are either in here or in another thread i started called "sulaco" take a look and let me know if you have any questions after you read through the older posts im talking about.

if you have a non windowed then youll need to decide on a shape in the door you need to cut out, then cut it, then cut piece of plexi/acryllic to fit, decide it you wanna double take it or bolt, then fix then your done. hope that helps thumb.gif

Only thing though. Did anyone else find the front panel audio cable to short? It's probably just my motherboard but I hate how I had to route it. I'm trying to find an extension so I can hide it better.


your cpu cooler is just so tiny

your cpu cooler is just so tiny
from here it looks like a CM 80mm and with only the two pipes for cooling if he's gonna use it as his permanent cooling solution
then he needs to add a second fan to it. it comes with second fan hardware and I recommend an 80mm PWM like this ARCTIC F8 PWM
to have proper BIOS control.
that 'mini' cooler's fan is only a 3-pin and he's gonna need a good thermal paste.
this is that cooler: RR-H101-22FK-RI
and with dual fans like I stated above it still had a hard time keeping my i3-2130 @ 3.6GHz under 72C.
not sure it can cool anything stronger than that.

needs to upgrade.
