On a side note, I'm not getting any love in my build log and I'm needing some feed back. The way I was trying to mount the pump really wasn't working. I couldn't keep it from sagging, plus I had no way of decoupling it from the case. I finally admitted defeat and came up with this. I'll be making a platform out of wood and using foam to decouple it from the case. Let me know that you think.

i put in the "high-flow backplate" today, and it did actually make a couple of degrees difference (nothing major, but worth noting for anyone looking to get the best possible performance outa the stock air cooler). HERE's a link to anyone looking for one, works with any reference layout 400/500 card.

Hey everyone. I've been following this thread for awhile, so I decided to join up and start modding my case. I've had my SS for about 4 months now? Something like that. It's a great case, and after seeing all your pictures and modifications, it seems this case can only get better. So I'm about to engage on a rather large project, but I have some questions first. I have 3 spare 120mm fans I'd like to through in the case. Any spots that are "must-have"? I was thinking about mounting one in the 5.25" drive bay, and maybe one on the floor, and the last in front of my HDD's. My cable management is pretty good, but after seeing some of yours I'm left thinking I'm a horrible amateur haha. Any little tricks? I need to get my case off the ground....it's sitting on carpet. My PSU has it's fan facing down, so it's drawing in carpet air, which I can only imagine is horrible. Do I add longer legs (never a bad thing LOL AMIRIGHT!?!?!) or do I just flip around the PSU and have it drawing in warm case air. I'll be taking pics with each and every step, including my cable management, so expect a build log coming soon.

i added an additional intake in 3 of the 5.25" bays, and added a hole in the bottom for an intake. if adding taller feet isn't the way you want to go, simply buy a piece of wood to sit on the carpet, and put the computer on top of that (something like a 1x10 of the proper length would be great). painting it flat black will help tie it into the case too. here's a couple of shot of how i did my fan mods:

You'll need zip ties! Speaking of which, I just ran out.

i used a thin piece of left over fiber glass, though a solid piece of hardboard would do just as good, painted black it looks like it's part of the case.
