Ok so these are the holes (4 of them) which used to have stands that lifted up my case. They are 3/4in in diameter.

I could try finding something to put into this. I could also use the book trick as well.

A used dryer sheet. Just cut what you need and tape the thing down. It's underneath your case so no one will see it anyway.

Use books for the time being. I recommend just getting rubber feet with sticky tape. Just cover up the holes so dust doesn't go in.

I usually used swifter pads but I know we said that was a bad idea.

remember those cut to fit air filters i suggested before? just cut a square filter that would cover the intake for the GPU intake hole you are going to cut, but add about 1/2 inch on each side so if the hole is going to be about 2 inches wide, then you want to cut a 3 x 3 inches sized filter. the additional 1/2 inch on each side is so you can superglue a strip of Velcro on each side. glue (or double sided tape) the other side of the Velcro to the bottom of the case so you can Velcro the filter to the bottom of the case. (and take it off when you need to wash the filter)

just make sure you clean the whole case very well with wet paper towel to get all the aluminum shavings out. you don't want anything shorting out from those things flying around.

put the case on a flat surface and take a hammer to lightly tap the aluminum back to a flat surface. looks like some of the aluminum was bent from the drilling. if you want to clean up the work alittle, you can use a jig saw to make the hole more circular. but as you said, it's functional atm. so if you are satisfied with the result, then just take those leftover cut to fit filters and cut yourself a custom filter for that hole.

Ha

I know I wrote to a mod to get the name of the thread edited this has turned into a whole case mod reconfiguration.

When I have time on post one I will show the changes lol.

Right now at idle GUI Photo (Click to show)

The fans are at 50 percent idling at 39/40c on the bottom and 50c at the top. Weird that the bottom is now lower... I will load up titan fall as a test with the fans at 100 percent

I can't get the case totally closed but here is how it looks.
Bottom of Case lifted on books (Click to show)

The Book thing seems to work I used nylon hose as the cover... Ha!

I will stop by a store for rubber lifters it the books actually cover the 4 holes here is the clearance

Excuse the girls boots she wouldn't move since I have been at this.
