what do you think of this temporary case mod? will it overheat my pc?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
ok so as most of you know i was given a free 4U server case to use for my pc build. it didnt come with a lid/top so i decided to make my own. keep in mind this mod is only a temporary mod. in about 2 weeks i will be buying a proper micro ATX CASE. what i want to know is assuming i put some 80mm case fans in here to help exhaust the heat, will this mod work or will it just cause a heat buildup? this mod is still a work in progress but should be finished tonight, also i used velcro to fix the board to the side panels. that way if i need to access the inside of the case i can just un velcro the lid off. if u have any suggestions about ways to improve this mod or any comments or concerns about heat buildup let me know i have 2 case fans plus my psu has a 120mm fan in it also my cpu cooler has 2 120mm fans lastly below are pictures showing the mod thanks


edit i dont feel comfy running the case with the top cover left off due to dust buildup

will the back be completly open ?
if YES: don't worry, a lot of air will circulate

chimco back will be left as it is in the picture aside from an 80mm case fan that will be placed in the slot where the psu would normally fit and the fan will be pushing the hot air out of the case

put a 120mm for the peace of your eardrums

with the back open the airflow by the cpu cooler is already enough to make air circulate and avoid heat buildup
also do you have a graphic card? with it's fan ? wink.gif
