My case pictures – need serious help!

post #1 of 34
Thread Starter 
My cousin gave me this case. It looks still a solid case. The water-cooling unit was removed because of leaking. I put the E4300 and Gigabyte 965 on and it is very hot. I want to improve its airflow but don’t how. Here are some pictures.

1.Overview



2.Top.




3.Back. No screw hole. What type of fan I need to get and where I can get it?




4.Front. It seems I can put fans but no screw hole.




5.Side panel. Use rotary tool to cut hole but it is in solid steel. How?

On the back fans, the clips will hold them. Have to get the right size for the clips... (probably 90mm... unsure of thickness...)

still waiting for last 3 pix to load

Werid. Won't let me upload.

Front's probably designed for those clips too. ZIP tie a fan there if you want.
As for cutting thru the side panel. Best to use a Hole Saw & cover the area with masking tape to keep from damaging the paint...

Thanks for the infor. Here are my some idea.

1. Let the black and front as vent. Cut hold to install 2X 120mm fans but I don't know in or out
2. Install fans on back and front. Cut few rows of small holes for vent.

Which one is better?

Personally, I'd probably do #2.

Should probably get some more ideas from some of the folks around here.

Change the title of the thread to "Need help modding case for Max Airflow." gives a better description of what you need... some others may have a bit more to say here...

I'd put a vent right over the CPU on the side panel, probably 1 fan in back, 1 in front. Thats really about all I'd do personally...

just remember you want as much air going in as going out. One in the back and one in the front would work well thats prob all id do and some vent holes if you want.
