Does anyone know how much quieter the case gets when you cut out the plastic thingies that support the mesh on the top and front panels, because my case is pretty loud with all of my fans running through there...

I duct-taped the bottom hole of the case because my room is too dusty for it to be an intake, and it would make a really lame exhaust. (the filter is for 140mm fans and all I have are 120s, plus the filter that comes with it isn't very legit.)
Too loud? Do you live in a hot environment? I mean, if not, then there's no need to have the fans running that fast. Plus, you only have one GPU.

Now, I know you have 6 case fans, plus the 80mm, so it would be rather difficult - or perhaps impossible to control each of the fans using the BIOS. So, if you can control at least some of them, then control the ones you can, and perhaps get a fan controller for the rest so that you can turn them down to a comfortable sound level. After all, you have 6 case fans!! So, unless you live in a really hot environment where it's like 80°F or more all the time, there's actually no need to have that many fans at such a high setting for a rig such as this.

Due to crappy A/C in my house, it fluctuates from 76-79 degrees in my room 24/7. At night (when I use my computer more) it is actually higher than it is during the day.

Keep in mind that I live in Pennsylvania, and you'll realize why 79 degrees is pretty bad.

I also want to keep my processor cool as it is running on the stock heatsink... I want to push my OC further at a later time, but to do that I may need another CPU cooler... I was thinking a Gemini II...

wow that's really interesting actually... i would have figured 10mm would be a little too much for a side panel.

I know but companies like Scythe are supposed to have pretty accurate specs and their specs pwn...

imo a xiggy S1283, Sunbeam CCF or TRUE/megatron would be far better... exotic coolers like a gemini can't stack up in all honesty.

Hey guys...well I have decided to do a little more modding whlie I have a few weeks off work

1. I want to do a few more cuts on the chasis...open the cable hole a little, open another hole for PCI-E power cables and SATA cables, take out the HD bay and open a hole behind the CPU for better access to the back plate.



2. Another thing I want is a different window. This is kind of what I have in mind.



I have never done a window mod before and I have a few questions for the forum. I am a complete nOOB when it deals with a window mod.

A. What should I use for a window? (I was thinking about getting a 24" x 24" sheet of Polycarbonate) It says it is stronger than Acrylic and Plexiglass. Will this work for a window?

http://www.estreetplastics.com/3_16_...3001585100.htm

B. What is the best way to secure the glass to the side panel?

C. What is the best U channel stuff to use? What size do I need?


Thanks in advance for any responses

Never made a window mod myself, but why dont you take the space of the side fan with it... and put that fan somewhere else. Since you are removing the entire harddrive bays you are already going to get improved airflow. I would say put the space of window covering the harddrive area and put that where the fan is now. Making it one big square.

A. I think normal acrylic is enough that is off course a bit larger then your window size
B. Strong double sided tape would do just fine, no need to glue anything down.
C. Any I suppose, maybe not to fat ones since you want to let the window stick to the double sided tape.

Question for you though how long did it take to get that black interior with priming painting etc...? Realy want to do it too, but not sure...
