Thanks for your opinion and great work on your HafxIce ;D

But is there a reason you don't recommend the R4's? 90 cfm @ 19 dba seems to be great plus they have red LEDs.

I guess it also comes down to which do you think looks better; LEDs or black casing and red painted fans. What do you guys think? If no to the LED's, can you recommend a specific model of 120mm under $12 (which can be taken apart easily)?

I absolutely love the case - Huge, cool looking, air filters everywhere, options to put fans everywhere.. etc

Btw, I do not recommend CoolerMaster fans, get aftermarket ones (GT, Scythe, Noiseblockers, Gelid, Silverstone AP, alot of other good fans out there).

Anyway, the below is my first case-modding attempt (rig building after a long time). I've built rigs before (but those were 7 years ago with just rig assembly).

Sweet setup!

I don't have direct experience wif the R4's but I have a couple of CM fans and I don't like em 1 bit. And I don't believe in their specifications.. But thats my image of em so.....

As for your second request - I think you may want to try Enermax Magma - reasonable price as well as red blades, ok performance-noise ratio and removable blades.

and thanks guys for the thumbs up.. Put in alot of thought and sweat for my first casing mod. (Was literally sweating when I put the dremel on my first cut into it...)

I am paning to buy HAF 922 but how can I create my own dust filter?

Pantyhose folded over until you you place it over the fan works well.
