my current rig, featuring ghetto cable management, ghetto power button (not displayed) and ghetto noise dampening.
my laptop (still typing this on it, as the rig is moving files to make room for a new win7) is louder than that rig. weird.

I jammed a small fan (90mm I think?) behind the expansion slots, on the outside on the back of the case, using styrofoam to "encourage" air flow past my video card and out the case. Not that it needs it or anything... And its not the best sight, but I don't look at it.

Wanted to add some more airflow to my RAM/CPU, and I wanted to match the other 140mm in the front, so I modded in a 140mm fan in my 3 empty 5.25" drive bays with some small zip ties going through the holes where you would normally screw it in, and around the drive bay screw slots. I don't get an ounce of fan vibration, even on 100% speed.

I also modded my drive bay covers to be a lot more sturdy, and not fall off. Unfortunately they never stayed in that well, no matter what I did. So I got a couple of plastic clips (I don't know what they are called, my Dad gets them from CA state buildings when he does jobs, and I have not seen them in stores. There are like a plastic clip you would use to close a bag of chips, but with a small metal wire handle that you can remove just leaving the plastic clip part. And these things are STRONG STRONG. They do NOT move).

Its late now but I might post pics tomorrow or over the weekend. It looks really crummy though, not terribly proud of it. I was just messing around last time I took my case apart, not like my card needs it, and no temp comparisons either.
