Installed an extra 80mm intake fan in 5.25 bays a while ago:



Used some sound damping foam (pic quality is not good):




But i'm going to use another case. This case served me well and was good to keep cost down when i got my rig, but after overclocking my cpu and gtx670 bios mod it is at its airflow limits. 80mm fans are also noisy and there are no cable management options.

if only they stuck to one colour, when it arrives in yellowed creamy almost white, it's just not as attractive smile.gif

Thts an old Chieftec isn't it. Cut some holes in the roof for 120-140mm Fans (or a Rad)
If you put fans in the roof, you can change the rear 80mm to intake
And you can easily mod the front/bottom intake to breathe better, so you can run slower fans

Just some ideas; then again, for less than € 100,- you can get a nice Fractal Design case smile.gif

Yes it is, I think that case is about 12 years old, maybe more. It was our first non-generic desktop at home when I was a teenager. I 'borrowed' it and filled it up again with some fresh components smile.gif.


i've thought about modding it even more to get better airflow but I don't have the necessary metal cutting tools to do it right. I've bougth a used Nexus prominent R. I'm on a budget right now... biggrin.gif

Got some airfilters in that nexus, so no dust-fest inside my case anymore!

I used to have one similar that i pulled from an old PC, i used it for cooling a heavy duty motor since it liked to overheat. one time (before i got a fan grill for it) i put my hand about 6 inches away from it to feel the airflow, aaannd it sucked my hand in cutting about halfway into two of my fingers, and it broke two of the fan blades.

Antec Skeleton, ASUS M4A88TD-V EVO/USB3, AMD 965 BE, Corsair H100 zip tied on. The power, reset switches and HD activity light are scrounged from a Lian Li case. The Antec wiring broke like day one. Freaking garbage. front.JPG 2274k .JPG file back.JPG 2223k .JPG file


I don't know why I can't see my pics I uploaded. I had "import images" clicked on. sigh.....
