Very easily. This case is very large... I don't think I can stress that enough.

While the BTF90 isn't that big (92mm) it felt very small in the Tempest. This thing can fit a 2x120mm radiator internally, so I doubt a 120mm cooler will be a problem.



As an update to sleeving... I got lazy tonight an the 1.6GHz Sempron was killing me. So I setup my PC on my desk, and will be sleeving it on and off for the next week.



Stock Tempest fans finally being put to good use...




More to come.

i have a megahalems. if it can fit that thing, expect it to fit anything. the only problem you can run into is if it doesnt work on your mobo. this problem is VERY rare.

Hola all.

Well, I ordered a moar powerfull PSU, because the one in my sig wasn't powerful enough to handle OCing, and cathodes. If I flipped the cathodes on, It would power off, lol. It's being replaced by a corsair 650TX. So, I'm going to be taking apart my case, and re-doing hella cable management, and other projects while the case is apart. Here's what I plan to accomplish, in order of priority:

1) Pop the rivet of the PSU support bracket, and dremel/drill a hole in the bottom of the case, allowing the PSU to be flipped over, and the cables closer to the mobo tray. Also, find some spacers to help support it, and a filter.
2) Re-do the cable management with zip-tie anchors. Currently, I'm fastening PSU cables with duct-tape.
3) Plasti-dip the entire inside a flat black.
4) Replace the 140mm top fans with more powerfull ones
5)Replace one of the front fans with a CM R4 (Blade broke)

I'll post pics of the dremeling, and painting when I find a non-snowy/rainy weekend.

Edit: Wow, so I got done mauling my Tempest with a dremel. I dremeled out the back fan grill, and a 120mm hole for the PSU fan on the bottom of the case. I'm so proud of myself because it was the first real dremel job I've done. Right now, nothing is in my case, as I plan to upgrade the PSU within a day, and hopefully paint it this weekend. I will post pictures of the dremel-ing tomorrow. I think it turned out well.

a couple tips. i would dremel out the grill on the front fan bracket. also hoes in the top left and top right of the mobo for 8pin and front panel wires.i got some awg18 wires and ran them off of the top fans which really helped because i didnt have to run a molex to the top of the case.

i feel you on the rainy/snowy stuff. im up here in ct and i cant believe we got snow already. i have an insulated garage so i heat it up and use a respirator to paint which works well.

Haha actually already did all of those, except for the front panel wires. Thanks!

i found the pics of your case. did you consider drilling a hole in your hdd cage(side opposite the window) to route cables? i did this and it worked well. if you like the blue id say stay with it but personally i like to be different so i switched out the LEDs. individually sleeving your psu cables is the way to go. mine came out so amazing i cant believe it.

i havent had anytime to work on my computer as of late. i did get a raptor but i havent used it yet. also, ive been working on spraying fan blades to match my case. im just testing it on old fans but it seems to be coming out well. if all goes good, ill have to implement this somewhere in my case

Yeah I just dremeled a rectangle between 2 of the lower ovals to help route cables. The sata connectors were too tight of a fit. Fixed now
