So I figured that his fans were slightly touching the mesh, I wanted to share with him what I did. Even if they don't touch, it's still a good idea to cut that piece out to increase airflow, and possibly still remove some of the noise because the fan is having a hard time pulling or pushing air through the grill.

I appreciate your help and I also want to try out to cut the plastic out, to increase the airflow smile.gif
But i got another question, I'm a noob in things like case modding, so with which kind of tool did you cut the plastic out? just curious wink.gif

I got creative and used a knife at first. Got a little messy biggrin.gif The easiest thing would be something like a pair of pliers or even wire cutters. They easily fit in there, so It's really easy to do smile.gif

Otherwise I would say a hacksaw place maybe?

Thinking about doing that to mine this weekend.
Must get some pics taken of my chassis and post them.

I used a hacksaw to cut out the support beams of the top. It doesn't make the cleanest of jobs but it's fairly easy.


So can definitevely recommend that if you don't have a dremel!

Did you get rid of the mesh first or did you just leave it in one piece and then cut out the plastic?

Okay guys, so my problem is this.

The temperature of my top card in my SLI is way too high (I'm talking 95 - 98°C + under full load for a GTX580) due to the fact that they are sandwiched 3-Slot cards (Asus Matrix).

So my plan would be to give the case a better airflow by mounting 2 Bitfenix Spectre pro 200MM in place of the stock ones, and adding 4 x 120mm good fans on the mesh panel (+ 1 on the 3,5 bay). Will this improve my GPU temps in a significant way, or would I be better off mounting an Artic Accelero xtreme plus on my top card? (a mod that scares me a bit).

Thanks in advance
