well thanks a lot man but how do I handle the motherboard? Where do I hold it?

I still don't get how to take it out, I mean first I remove the screws, then I just pull it out and the i/o part should come off easy?

I'll check out some videos.

What specific setup would you use for a 2 intake (front & bottom) and 3 exhaust system (2 tops & back)? Keep in mind i have no idea what manufacturers are more reliable or what CFM is preferrable.

I'm also thinking about getting a fan controller and any advice with that would be very welcome.

Thanks again for all your help.
I just got 2 of these fans for my top exhaust http://www.crazypc.com/products/5750.html

Hold it by the sides of the board, and as long as you have removed everything and all the screws it will lift out pretty easily. Also you will have to pop the I/O shield plate out which isnt too hard at all.

Handle it by the sides. Make sure your hands are clean. Touch the metal on your case on your case before you touch the any of the hardware (vid card, mobo). This will help dissapate any static electricity.

Then, yah, you just remove the screws and it all comes out including the i/o part. Don't forget about the thin metal i/o panel. It should just pop out after you remove the mobo. You'll need the i/o panel for your new case.

I know it looks tough, but it's not that bad. The important thing it to take you time and don't force things. If it feels like something is pulling on the board stop lifting and make sure all wires are disconnected and all screws are removed. An ATX mobo usually has 9 screws, not just the 4 at the corners.

Do it once and you'll be able to do it in your sleep.

...actually your mobo looks like it only has seven. But the point stands: there are more than 4 screws holding your mobo in place so be thorough. If you feel something pulling back as you lift, stop and double check that everything is unpluged/unscrewed.

Good luck!

I need some ideas of a better way to mount an extra 120mm front fan in the 5.25" bays
I have 1 screw holding it in the break off metal peice covering the bay

I just received this yesterday, the coolermaster 4in3 device bay.

Of course, there are plenty of folks that have modded it to work with the bottom fan mount from the case... others have zip tied them.

I've seen folks cut the metal mesh that was in the drive bays and screw that in to mount fans as well. There are a few pics back through the thread that show that method.

This is how I did it...

I took the bottom fan mount (on the bottom of the case), dremeled the 4 clips to a 1/2" length (I'm sure you could snip it with some scissors or snips), screwed the fan in place and attached it to the sides with zip ties. You can run the zip ties through screw holes on the side of the drive bay and run it through the holes on the side of the fan mount. It first perfect and looks like it's part of the case. I can take some pics when I get home. Hope this helps.
