Covering up fan holes

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Im looking to do a few case mods to my current project but one thing i cant seem to decide on is a material to use to cover up fan holes, ie, the case is cut on the top for 2 200mm fans or 2 140mm fans or 3 120mm fans. Im installing a 3x120mm radiator there and would like to cover up the rest of the holes with something to promote better airflow and to prevent the air from coming back in the case through the holes. Id like something thin and easy to work with if possible and can be painted black to match the case. I even went as far as to think about using electric tape. You wont be able to see it unless you get your head into the case and look hard so i figured that might work. thoughts?

Thanks.

PS: its a nzxt h630 fyi
