The panel cooler master makes with the weird shaped window works great. The 120mm fan is right over the video card. Some people don't care for the window shape though.

I have my evercool 80x15mm fan as exhaust. My top fans are both 140mm exhaust fans. The bottom fan is 120mm intake fan, rear 120mm fan is exhaust and front 120mm fan is intake. I have one 120mm fan that is on the bottom of the side panel as intake.

I've installed 80x15 intake and it dropped down a bit of 1-2C temperature on the motherboard. Thanks Canadian.

Today I decided that the fan controller and DVD drive didn't look good against the purple so I decided to make a change. The controller is a simple fix due to the fact that I rarely have to adjust my fans so I just removed the hold down screws and simply pushed it back into the bay. With it recessed into the case it really doesn't even need to be screwed down now. The cables plugged into it keep it in place.

The DVD drive was a bit different. I had painted my last two bay covers before doing this mod. I was hoping to just snap them in as normal with the drive recessed and just snap the covers in place and use a small putty knife to pry the cover off when needed. Good old CoolerMaster has to make a top notch product and these babies snap in place pretty good so that option was out. I had only so much room to work with as well so I had to remove the extra metal tabs and rolled over frame on the cover so I had just a flat piece of mesh.



I took a 6" plastic ruler and cut about ½" off so it fit across the cover and used two sided tape to apply it. I then applied tape to the drive tray front and stuck it to the ruler. The tape allows the cover just enough movement to where all I have to do is press the lower right corner where the button is and the tray opens very smoothly. It takes even less pressure than the actual button did before and I don't have to search for it in the dark.
You can still see the green ruler that I used in this shot. It's too late in the day to paint it purple. I also didn't worry about lining it up straight or filing the face just yet as it will need a touch up with the paint as well.

Has anyone modified the motherboard tray so they can take replace coolers that would normally need the motherboard to be removed? As in cutting a hole in the back or removing the grill that's there already and making the hole bigger?

Im worried about strength, especially on mine as theres a kink in the mother board tray already.

Mainly I want to do this as I want to upgrade to a noctura but I may go water cooling not long after or just for reseating the cooler if it needs doing. has anyone done this?

I have an Asus P5N-D.
