Anyone else having real problems with cable management (especially a corsair psu) I have no idea where to put all these extra cables. seems like there just isnt enough room behind the mobo tray and the outside case.

I haven't had any issues, maybe because my PSU is modular. But you can always put some cables behind the HDD bays, and make sure you are using lots of zip ties.

awr8 guys some ppl were impressed with my window mod and requested for pics...so here they are...i'll let them do the talking


ok guys so i went on the with a few more mods...



Here is how the casing looked...naked b4 the window mod.....










Here is the template drawn for the CUT...with ROUNDED edges !...








Here it is...with most of the hard work done..that is cut up with rounded edges...REPAINTED .....and the edging applied....the rubber edging was really really hard to find :S...but still got it done....









Here is the close up of the rounded edges...what do ya think?











Here it is with the window fitted and the cathodes off....just the led fans....










And here it is with the cathodes powered ON...








Here is how the casing looks from front....





MOD 2





AND now for the second MOD where i cut the fan grills out and replaced them with my own custom ones....this greatly greatly improved the airflow...and really did reduce the noise.....





I took the pliers and went at it like beast !!








Here it is all cut out...







Did similar stuff with the bottom 140mm grill as well.....





Here are the three custom Chrome Fan grills i got....with one of them painted Flat black..eventually painted all 3 flat black...thats how i like em










And here is the pic with the custom grill in place....pretty sweet huh?










AND HERE's the BOTTOM INTAKE FAN WITH GRILL.....







soo lemme know what u guys think about this one?

how much did the back one reduce the noise. all but the back one right now on mine are cut out and im wondering if it would be worth it to take every thing out. cut 1 hole and put it all back to get rid of the very last little sound of air moving noise lol.
thinking maybe if i do a metal grill on the back about removing every other ring on it too. its would really be just to keep wires from going in. i know better then to stick my fingers in that hole...

dude the rings on these aftermarket grills dont restrict airflow whatsoever....so if i were u id keep the rings in place....for reasons that u know better


and yeah it rreally did reduce the noise...the back and bottom one showed the most gains...the top ones didnt that much...but thats maybe cause i got 88 cfm on bottom and rear...and CM generic fans on top...so thts why didnt notice much.

my back fan is the stock black cm fan every thing else in the case are blue led cm 120's.

i don't think i would have done it with the motherboard in still i would worry about a piece of metal falling some where after that i didn't notice and frying every thing lol

ps. did you paint the inside??

I cut out the back for the rear fan yesterday and will be using a grill to dress up the hole, by the time the powder coating gets done it will be even cleaner.
