no you need to cut the metal out too and on the one towards the back of the case need to trim the plastic at the back edge of it and angle the fan a little bit. but they can be made to fit up there. and give you more room around your cpu heat sink. my true with the nicer fan holder wouldn;t fit east west with 2 top fans in stock location

Hmmm, how much space would be cleared up by this mod? Around an inch? (really bad with estimating lengths so I had to ask) It looks rather interesting. I think I've seen this done before to fit a radiator on the top of the case.

the depth of the fan you put there minus the plastic mounting it. its hard to show but you mount the fan out side the box with the mounting flange on the inside of the box with zip ties so it can be on an angle

theres some more pics of it.

Ahhh, ok, I get it now. Looks like an addition half inch or so. hmmm, might just do that next time I'm in a cutting mood. Was wondering what effect it would have on the structural integrity of the case. Any problems?

you mean 15mm a 25 won't fit up there with just the mesh out, you can put lower profile 15 mms up there but you won't get the top back on with a 25 in both spots.

i would say you gain about 20-23mm above your cpu, but if you are close it will free up what feels like a foot or 2 of room.

as far as structural integrity goes i wouldn't sit on top of the case(recently watched a guy use a hp as his main computer chair) but its still just as strong if you ask me. the front fan will be touching the mesh if done right

you don't fold like i can fold

in general tho if you are doing any thing like folding or converting video the cost of building that system in to a gaming rig is just the price of the video card at that point. so why wouldn't you spend the extra 150-200 bucks and be able to play pc games when you have some down time.
I had already spent $1500 on the system, and was waiting for Fermi to release before upgrading card. Fermi is taking ages, so am getting a 5770 soon.
