Ah I see, yes those bars do obstruct airflow a bit so probably a good idea to get rid of them anyway.

Indeed, it's a very easy mod to do as well. Gonna take a go at doing the same to the front fan filter.

If you cross reference the standard Stats. on these fans they are right up there. Beating most fans for fun.

Yeah mine turned up this morning and it pushes a ton of air and isnt that loud! I just need to see what its like once fitted to my side panel as that often causes extra noise. The fan though and its performance / noise level and specs are amazing. Looking forward to seeing how it performs.

Also the side fan without a side mount, i used old PCI Brackets to do that mod but there are other premade solutions out there but they seem to be available only in the USA.

Bend two PCI brackets and fit onto the mounting points on a fan, lign up the brackets with a PCI slot and screw in place.







I found it didnt make a huge difference so in the end i made a custom side panel which is where my new Piranha is going to sit

Please let me know if they are worth to buy, beacause 2 of them + shipping costs the same as 1,5 noctuas without shipping tongue.gif

Will do mate thumb.gif

Thanks buddy, nice simple little mod i might experiment with that idea Cheers ... ! Nice build too, by the way thumb.gif I have the Mesh side panel coming as well as the normal window. I have a few ideas in my mind with regard to side panel air flow but not really sure what the best method is yet. I want to keep a positive air pressure really ..... Mmmmm i need to think about that, any ideas would be gladly taken .. is the stock side window suitable for cutting ? I was thinking may be a perspex and mesh combo

Yeah that's the first MOD i will be making to my case. When it gets here that is ... lol

I didnt cut the original panel, it felt a little brittle to be doing any mods on it and i didn't fancy having to find a replacement in the UK should it go wrong. I bought a sheet of arcylic and made a new one. Then used a CAD machine at work to cut the hole. Temps have gone down now by 8c on my GPU's but im having issues with filters restricting the airflow too much which is why i got the Piranha to see how that does.

Ill do a mini review on the Piranha fan tonight for those who are interested as i cannot find hardly anything on the internet about them.

I was thinking half mesh and half arcylic panel too but that would be fairly complicated to do i expect. I wanted to make something seperate from the original parts so that i don't muck anything up thats going to cost a small fortune to replace.

I did break some of the plastic mounts on the side window when making it as i had to use new screws so will have to buy another if i ever go over to the old panel.

Next week, I'll get my bitfenix for the front, so I'll try it out first to see if I get it to fit, if not I'll get 2 120mm ones.
It will fit but not well, it find of wedges in there.

Yeah i would like to hear your thoughts on the Piranha fan, i will let you know what my take on them are too. I thought that might be the case with the stock window panel, looks like a trip to the Perspex supplier is coming ... lol Yeah i am gonna look into a fixing method for a mesh/perspex combo panel.

Seeing that your gpu's exhaust into the case, wouldn't it be better if that side fan was an exhaust instead of an intake?
