Mnpctech also has some acrylic fan grills that i really like so i might even take a piece of plexi for the window cut the holes out and sandwitch the dust filters between the fan grill and plexi.
I am planning to go watercooling tho so now im wondering if i would even need those 2 big fans, they just move a great amount of air i figured it would be a sin not to use them lol.
All i have to say is this:
If you are 100% sure that you want to water cool your rig-FORGET ABOUT THE SIDE FANS
-they will serve no purpose, apart from sucking in dust as Ceader said earlier.
Secondly, sit down with your Dad and plan your plexi window for your side panel, when finished, you will be able to show off your rigs innards and all your hard work.
(Make sure that the plexi is sturdy enough so that it provides support to the side panel, dont get thin plexi cause it may be prone to cracking whenever you remove your side panel)
My wife's 922 came with a side panel with a 200mm fan, i promptly boxed that in the store room, and installed a new side panel with a huge plexi glass window.
Whenever we eventually sell the case, the original side door will be sold along with the case as it is now.
As for your fans, store them for a rainy day, or in case you decide to ever get a 200mm radiator, or simply sell them Edited by kkorky - 1/19/13 at 6:17pm
