In the thread i explain why I am doing it this way--this case is too small for a blowhole and I am running an exhaust only case this time to draw air through a rad...you'll see.
I don't have to make sense--I am MAD. lol
Here is an ideal use for this mod--pop a hole in the side panel over the CPU and run a HSF like a Zalman 7700 or Ixtrema ITC 120 and aim that bad old Panny right at that HSF--no other intake--all the air comes through the filter.
For that mod though I would mount the fan with screws to the panel with a 120mmhole using the same clampling system but with a lower profile filter that is much larger in diameter--you see the point I am making? This mod is a mod is a mod--how you or anyone else chooses to apply it is up their own particular MADness
I almost got the triangular Edelbrock airflilter for this application--but I thought this one is the right size for this small case...and the exhaust only Rad idea I want to try out...and it would allow me to mount a blowholefans where I could not previously do so...
EDIT: silly hats are in now--haven't you heard?
