tT Soprano mod idea; Need input.

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Next time I take the mobo out for something, I was thinking about taking out the top inputs, and putting them in one of the 3.5" drive bays, and sticking a 120mm blowhole where the inputs were.

Pics so you can understand. I have the white version with no holes in the side panel version of this case.

Put blow hole here:


Put Inputs in 3.5" drive bay:


Thus getting rid of wires coming from top of case:

No input?

Personally, I'd agree with your idea 100%!
It's smart, it's practical and it's the way to go
What the heck... building a panel first to assure its doable, then adding the blow hole makes good sense!

Another possibility....
If the 3.25'' bays are not needed, you could insert/inlay the cut out section/door from the top as a whole unit
Provided there is enough room and that you want to go that far in your mod.

I like your idea a lot. It would make the posts and inputs much more usable as it was stupid of TT to put them on the top.

First time I've seen this post.

You made a few post in my Soprano mod thread. You have that sharp lookin Soprano in white. If you noticed I installed an exhaust fan up top in place of those (useless to me) top ports.

I would presonally put a 120mm on top and on the side panel, and use the 120mm fan that comes with it for exhaust.
the more air flow the better

Edit: the above picture would be perfect, but i would make the side window smaller as to hide the drive bays, and only show the mobo/cpu fan and pci slots
