Need Help With Adding Cooling/Fans to My Case

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
The two fans for the case is not cutting it.

I overclock and right now I'm running Prime95, my CPU (w/Zalman) is 60-65 degrees under load.

I would like to add additional cooling/fans without having to mod/cut anything. I'm not sure which is the ideal way to go about this. I have the very popular Cooler Master Centurion 5 CAC-T05-UW Tower:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811119068

There one intake fan in the front bottom section that cools the hard drives.

How can I mount a fan in the upper front section where the optical drives sit?

I would have gotten a better case but chose to spend the money on better components.

I used ty-raps and put a fan in place of a drive to put air on drives
