If you have, can you post a picture? I'd like to see how that irreversable mod looks before I do it.
Many others and myself have cut out the sniper thing in the plastic front cover if thats what you are reffering to. It looked cheesy and there is no easy way to make the fan most of us have in the 5.25" drive bays have the same sniper crosshair thing.

Heres a pic (crap camera, sorry)

here it is.

a few months ago some where in this thread some one posted a link to and a picture (im almost positive it was Gen Enigma) an electrical contact that attached to the side panel of computer cases eliminating the need to have wires run from your side window fans to the rest of the chase.

i would a couple of those contacts in my build. find them and i would be eternally grateful


this message probably wont self destruct in 5 seconds but who knows?
I think you are reffering to "Terminal Blocks", try a auto spares place. I have yet to find them in my country (not really looking hard enough I think). Just make sure you don't use something that looks very similar called a Nuetral Bar

I mounted my H50 in the drive bays as a push/pull intake. The mesh in the front is always icey cold to the touch. I felt inside today (wrapping red gel around my ***** pink cathode thanks to General E's advice) and was pleased to feel that it is like a windstorm inside the case.
Heres a pic :

Yes. Personally, I like the front sniper thing, but that's another issue and it also doesn't block airflow like the top grill does.

I was thinking of getting one of these and leaving the grill in place...

I think the stock fan's 60cfm rating is a load of crap. Either that or it just doesn't have the power to get through that grill.

After 13 days my replacement AGP card is on it's way. I don't know what the hell was up with newegg. The item that I RMA'd was no longer in stock (Sapphire HD 3850 AGP for those that don't know the back story)and every time I called, which was only like three times, they were rude and short and the policy was written in stone! First off they said the serial # wasn't matching up, HUH?! Second It was no longer in stock and policy was no in-store credit (well I believe Dannyboy can dispute that claim) refund only. Then I get an E-mail stating that I may choose a substitute item for, and this is the exact word they used, "around" the same price. So I'm thinking COOL! For my trouble of having to send this item in twice, $20 shouldn't be too much to ask. Boy was I wrong! I was curtly informed the replacement item had to be equal or lesser value or I had to accept a return. I had to remind the guy of all the glowing reviews I've read about how Newegg "upgraded me for free!" in the various product reviews. I also explained that I understood about performance mismatches as nothing in that category came even close the performance of the Sapphire. I mean having to go from 256-bit ddr3 to 128-bit ddr3 hurts even if you get a gpu upgrade. So I suggested this http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814131329 and had to settle with this http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814161308,which for the my buddy will probably be a great card (he currently runs a FX5200, I know, Poor guy).
I figure what's $20 bucks between friends, right? Everything according to the way Newegg handled this one. I'll keep buying from them cuz I'm afraid to go anywhere else, but my confidence has been shaken.

I hear ya. I felt the same way before cutting out my top fan grill, the metal not the plastic and while it didn't create a wind blowing turbine it did increase the airflow X2 and that was good enough for me.
