yea i was thinking of painting my cpu fans but im not messing with that XD

My Camera usually takes such terrible pictures but the morning lighting helped immensely.

I own a Tempest but It's being replaced by the Vulcan next week.
I've really enjoyed this case and it will be retired to server rack duty.

Does anyone know how to remove/replace the side fan? I've got a scythe to replace it with, but I'm afraid of breaking it.

all you have to do is pull those little black pins on the four corners, you can even use them again if you wish

Hey guys. I'm working on a small casemod with my Tempest EVO.

My old case seen here has a blue glowing temperature gauge on the front. Yesterday I pulled the unit out of it with the intention to USB-mod the power for it but then I realized that it had a Molex adapter. Yesterday just as a test I taped the screen to the inside of my tempest's side window and it looked pretty good.


My next idea was to cut a small rectangle in one of my 5.25 drive bays to put the temperature readout on the front of the case. I had a piece of paper over the mesh with the rectangle drawn where I want the cut. I showed my stepdad and he offered to take it to work and cut it for me - he's a precision machinist.


Just writing this I realized that I could easily just use the 2.25" floppy drive adapter for it but its ok, the mesh would look a lot better. I'll hopefully have pics. I tried taking one of it in the window but the quality was just terrible.


edit: here.

Not sure yet. I could use the foam, I could use something similar. We will see.
