When I first set up my rig:

Looking nice and tidy

I would advise cutting out the back fan grill to let more airflow, just needs a pair of nibblers and a file

That was probably one of the next things I'll get around to doing. I could feel the air from the Yate Loons bouncing off the fan grill and back into the case. Gotta be good for temps right?

Yea, so I hacked my fan grille out. I said hacked for a reason. I couldn't find the cutoff wheel for the dremel to make a nice clean cut, and didn't feel like spending some money or time to go spend money at home depot/lowes to pick up said cutoff wheels. So I just used what I had. I had some form of cutting bit for the dremel, its like a flat tipped drill of some sorts. So I stuffed that in one of the holes and just started hogging around the outside of the 120mm grill outline. It definitely didn't come out looking any kind of straight. But it wont ever be seen since its facing a wall and never moves, and its got a fan cover, the silver grate thingy (dunno the technical term).

I'll take a pic of it at some point to show the ghettoness of this, but hey it works great. No more air bouncing back into the case and the fan and grill fits just fine

Just hooked up a spare 15" next to my widescreen 19" pretty cool. Guess I gotta go get another 19". I thought I was pretty much done spending money on this rig...gah. That is all.
