The coolest thing about this machine is the raised vents on the top automatically open to vent out heat via the motherboard sensors! That's gotta be worth at least a couple hundred bucks alone!

It looks a little tight in there lol.

Today I figured I would pull out the 140mm top fan as it died on me, cooolermaster so kindly sent me a new replacement! arrived as a red LED (same as front) resleaved this.

As most of you know using the threaded screws can be a PITA screwing into fans, so I put the new harbor freight special, drill press to work I forget what drill bit I used..think it was 3/16ths..but anyways I drilled out most of the plastic on all my fans. This gives just enough "bite" for the screws..while making it less hand cramping removing the screws.

Yeah, definitely tight in there. It has 2 5970's and the vents don't open when it gets warm but as soon as you turn it on. All the ram slots are filled (even though there's just 3) and it's not at all awe inspiring like an Alienware used to be or even the Dells top of the line, what were they ALX or something. Y'all showed interest so I gotta show you the horrifying facts, I really was going to by an Alienware back when they were an independant. Now it's just an expensive cramped Dell.

@ MeatloafOD. Scary sight to me seeing that drill going through a perfectly good fan. I agree though that those screws have always been a bit tight and lately many even have different kinds of thread widths. Some day I'll spill out all my screws and bits collected over the years. Should make a fantastic pic. Anyway, you realize if you stop using those fans you can probably never sell them.

All I did was use a bit big enough to pull off the plastic slag that gets built up from the threaded screws. The existing holes were just cleaned up is all.

Really the ball fan died? Dang i figured that would be the last fan to die since all the others are sleeved. Also the replacement fan they sent you is a sleeve bearing fan so dont expect it to last any longer.

No problem, its either from you pressing CTRL + mouse wheel up/down or some pages have JavaScript that resizes the window zoom :s Much better to get a fluid page by having the font size resize and not the window element.

hmm... If those flaps on the top worked on a actuator, you could find a way to hook it up to a thermostat and have it open/close more/less dependant on the cases ambient temps. In fact thats a great idea for a mod on a custom case. Have flaps like the above described on the top(exhaust) and front(intake)

oh boo, its already like that Still would like it on a custom case


* On another note, dang I hate body filler. First batch used to much activator and it dried way to fast (30mins to hard) and the second batch WAY to little(10 hours and its just not there yet).

This is taken from the Alienware site; "Designed for Total Domination

Active Venting — This Alienware-exclusive feature helps your system stay cooler in the heat of battle. Controlled through Alienware's Command Center, the series of motorized vents can be programmed to allow greater airflow in high-performance situations.
