My fiance said she preffered the cross hair on and doesn't think I should cut the grill out because she likes the honey comb effect
What you are doing is more important for temps than looks.

well my fan controller and fans arrived today...here are some pics, not happy at all with how bright the red is on the r4's... installed one in front and couldn't see the red lights, so put my blue antec and she shined right through....now gonna order more 140's and 120's in blue and just make my case blue. Was gonna try red, but cant find any decent bright reds. Also the 2 dark photos, 1 is of the front 140mm red that i put in the top exhaust fan and the other is the r4 in the bottom front intake.

thanks, its acually antec 120mm blue fans on the side, i ordered red r4's to try to keep the red theme, but i am going blue now.

The Cable management sucks, i dont have the patience for it or the steady hands, whenever i get new computer stuff my hands shake like crazy when installing them and i cannot for the life of me get the cable management right....plus i need to buy extenders and not going to do that right now.

Just remember that if you use a sleeve bearing fan for the top fan, it will wear out prematurely. Fluid dynamic,twister and ball bearing fans would be optimal. Nice looking scout! Rep+

thanks for the recommendations, im gonna order 3 more blue antec fans(I like there speed and colors and they are double ball bearings). On a different note, does anyone here know what type of adapter i need to turn 2 fans with the 3 pin each into 1 3 pin(i wanna wire both side fans into one controller, one for front, one for top and one for rear.

On a side not, all the fans in this case can be 120mm, front(did not see that mentioned anywhere) and top(as known) have mounting holes for 120mm too.

GONE, fans GONE!!

Proper name for this tool is called Side Cutters. The Female
homosexuals took over the Dykes name that we used to call this tool.

Thanks everyone for the tips on how to cut the bullseye. Everyone got repped up. I think I'm going to try the utility knife trick first and see how that works. I also plan on cutting out the honey comb mesh so the tips will come in handy. I'll post some pictures when I'm done.
