That is still not an excuse to not clean inside the case regularly lol.

Thanks! Completely forgot about the rear being full of holes, that should be plenty of ventilation to allow the air to escape!

I'll also have four of the included 140mm fans as intakes (the 2 in the front and I'll move 2 to the right side panel) and the rear 140mm as exhaust to create a good crossflow of ambient air in the case and to make sure I have good amount of positive pressure to help prevent dust from being sucked in through the unfiltered back of the case.

On moving the top and bottom included fans to the right side panel .... if any wire sticks out past the plastic tabbies on the HD bays, the fans will eat it. If there was an award for "Mod with Most Rubber Bands" I'd win. Used the RB's across the two tabs to keep wires from unfurling. Will go away once make custom cables but works for now. I set my side panel fans as exhausts.... already have 12 fans blowing in and just the 1 going out.

Sometimes the shipping from China aint that bad. But given the price difference, I don't mind waiting. Of Course depends on what item I'm getting and is the price difference worth the wait.

They also have ....

-string of holes above PSU in back
-string of holes along the top
-Some holes under the HD bays
-the unused 5.25 bays ..... if ya leave door open ... smile.gif

I ordered the 5M roll from China .... thru Amazon tho .... feels a little safer knowing when I call to "fly off the handle', the person on the other end will be able to understand and enjoy my excellently chosen words and tirade smile.gif .... the Dad from "A Christmas Story" is my idol in this respect.

BTW .... I'm only using maybe 40" .... maybe I can trade the rest for bracket fabrication services !

Yeah I know. FWIW I ordered 50 prewired blue leds, 50 prewired UV leds, and 50 of those JST led connectors off ebay from China (well, 2 were mainland & one was 'Hong Kong' as if that makes any diff) from 3 different sellers. Each was under $5 & free shipping. The first arrived exactly one week later, and the last took 11 days to arrive.
post #1069 of 19369
Yeah I went ahead and ordered the China one from Amazon for 11.95 for the 5 meter strip w/ black tape. At leas if something screws up, I will be able to complain to someone who understands English smile.gif

I only have 1 female connector left unused on the Enthoo. Anything else I will connect to the Reeven so I can control brightness. I only have two controls being used on the Reeven.... Rad Fans and Case fans .... that uses up two channels....that leaves four left for lights or whatever
