Over your video card area is very good. CF or not, it will lower your temps

@Danny Boy. There are a couple quick ones that come to mind. Cutting out a hole in the mobo tray where the CPU is for easy access to the bracket so you wont have to take the mobo out and mess up your cable management.

Some people like to enlarge the bottom cable hole next to the PSU as the stock one can be a little bit tight.

Might want to punch a hole or two in the area to the right of the mobo for your SATA devices.

To improve airflow of the top fan placements, alot of people will cut out the honeycomb there, it can also help to reduce vibrations.

If you intend to use side mount fans, you might want to enlarge the fan mounting holes and put in a 1/4" inner diameter rubber grommet as that side-panel tends to amplify vibrations. If you want to use a high speed fan here, it's pretty much mandatory. You can do this on the side panels too.

A very cool sound dampening idea is to spray the inside of your case with "Rubberized Undercoating". It makes it look better too. But do some practice first, as its a little harder than paint to keep the stuff evenly coated.

1: cut out fan honeycomb at the top and in the front
2: mod in a 120mm fan in the bottom three 5.25" bays using zip ties
3: enlarge PSU cable hole
4: cut more holes near the edge of where the motherboard would be for epic cable management
5: paint the interior - conventional paint is good, but plasti dip (the rubberised undercoating canadian is referring to)

for side panel fans, i suggest putting one over the CPU/RAM (seeing as how you don't have a huge vertical heatsink) and one over the GPU(s).

I'll take a better pic tonight to show you what I'm talking about. But it under construction ATM I'm adding a Crazy Frog electronic noise maker so that when you hit the power button it does the whole crazy frog motor noise.

This is what it looks like now after my upgrade.

if youre serious about the crazy frog thing... that is the greatest idea ever..

the idea itself deserves rep.. lol..

and for the cable management idea. haha thanks
