case mod question

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
hey ive got an older micro atx Dell powerspec tx366 , and I personally like the way the case looks, kind of nonchalant and blends in. ITs got a front fan pulling cool air in , and a rear fan , and the side of it has vents, a port that leads directly to the cpu. If i wanted to modify the side panel, and cut a big square out of it, and put some like porch screening or some kind of mesh that would allow the rig to breathe more, in the hole to keep the dust out ( i was thinking of possibly superglue) would that be pretty good, or do you think i should just drill a bunch of holes in the side of the panel(question mark on keyboard is broken). I have never used this case, personally it looks like it breathes pretty well, but i am building my first rig with it, and i am planning on overclocking, so I dont want to run into the case being an issue. I am planning on putting a noctua nh-c12p se14 in there and i want to make sure it has access to cool air to blow on my components. Ive never modified a case before, curious about any ideas, suggestions, or alternative routes to take. And i could buy a new case if i wanted, but i am partial to the way the micro atx cases look, and I want to stick with this one.

I think a hole cut in the door would look better (and breathe better) than a bunch of holes in the side. Could you post a picture of what you've got so we can get a beter idea of what you're planning?

Also, if you've got questions about modding a beige case, check out the OCN Beigemodder's club (link in my sig)! thumb.gif
