Ok so I just ordered my new CPU HSF and after ordering I looked at the specs and it weighs in at a whopping 3'6" amd 120lbs...

Nah just playing but it is big and my 250mm side panel fan in my X-Jupiter case wont fit anymore so I put it on the outside...

Also if you guys have any ideas to spruce it up a lil lemme know...

Nice job, maybe, make a metal grate for the fan so you don't get anything in the fan. I just finished my mod and I have an 80 on the outside of the top of case. I made a new steel grate and welded it to my case. I guess its not a grate so much as a fan cage! If you paint the grate and round the edges, it looks nice.

I'm no expert on case modding, but would modders mesh work for a cover? The Honeycomb style wouldn't look like it would restrict airflow much at all.. might be worth a look.

I would take off that grill. You're just restricting your Pull airflow. Take that off, then put a grill on the outside.

Actually, I was just looking around, it doesn't seem as though anyone makes that big of fan grills. SO MAKE ONE YOURSELF! ! ^_^

Go get something like this, CrazyPC Hex Mesh, put it on some standoffs or something, and mount it!
