This kind of where i'm at, have test fitted with some fans etc. and have put in some cardboard where there would be steel plates installed.

The fans in the picture are 140's

My plan is to cut a piece of 0,6mm steel plate and rivet it on to the front of the case, which will allow me to make a cut out for the radiator i choose.

Adding the steel plate will also add alot of stiffness to the case so it doesn't flex so much, and i also need to figure out how to make it work with front case panel, i have a spare front for my case, as i bought a P183 V3 front that had USB3, my P183 V2 only had USB2, so i can test fit with that and save the good one for the final build.

So it turns out you can actually fit a 140mm fan in the basement of the P183, but you need to a few spacers between the 140 fan and the case as there is 6 rivets preventing it from sitting flush, but no big deal, also you would need to take out the harddrive cage bottom mount and cut a good deal of it off, i haven't done it yet, i only test fitted the 140 fan after removing the mount.

I'm also considering cutting the HDD cage apart so it only can only hold 2 harddrives, so i would have room for a pump next to it.

There's a few names missing on the first page like @Bear304 (P183), @D-pea (P180) and @Daedalux (P180) smile.gif .

Also need to get @jkuzic to post some photos here and add his P380 to the list wink.gif .

I'm also keen to add myself to the P180 list (original post) biggrin.gif .
Thanks man, so proud right now

Looks good man, sorry ive been away from the thread for so long. If anyone is thinking about cutting away the dividing plate, id recommend a cutting drill. I used a cordless grinder with pre-drilled holes but it was touch and go for a bit.
Leaving the existing rivet holes is imperitive for reassembly, and you will definitelylose some regidity in the case.

Definitely two pieces and held on through the front plate, optical drive bay cage and dividing plate... yuk. Only really accessed it once every part was seperated.
