Project: Guarded Fan

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I basically had a very faulty case, so I decided to take some parts away from it. Fans and etcetera to add it on my newer case. I did not know which fan should I have placed since one of them was a led fan and the other was a normal one. I could still switch it, but that is not the case. I do not know if this is what you call modding, but I just thought it would be interesting to add a fan there since I remembered someone else had done the same. I did not use screws, instead I used cable wires. You can see on the edges that I used the cable wires to tie it tightly. I also used physics to get it fit in for it to stay and hold still. It is basically bending so it could hold it tightly with the dvd burner as a helping hand too. I am planning to put something to cover it, like something clear with holes so it could look nice. If you see the first image, I was thinking about keeping those two caps there and something in the middle. I also used the cages' guards to make them fit inside, I thought it would have been a good idea. Anyhow, would anyone know what I should do for covering that area up and still have the fan work nicely? I presume.

heh, adding fans is always a fun thing to do ^_^

you could always get some Modder's Mesh for covering it linky linky 2 linky 3
and there's always a sheet of acrylic w/ pattern(s) cut into it

i use some porch screening 2 layers thick, take some bondo or some epoxy and you've got a good filter.
you going to have your HD's behind it? or is it going to be a general intake?

Just general intake. I have 3x120mm fans in there now. There is one in the back, and two in the front, the one within the 5.25 cages and one on the bottom which is in front of the hard drive cage. I was thinking about trying to make something on my own. lol Modding is pretty fun, gives me the same feeling while overclocking. >

Thanks for the links.
