Looks like he has it for some extra NB cooling.

Yes, that 80mm is extra cooling for the northbridge.

A 120 would fit fine. You just have to take the rivets out holding the bottom hdd cage in place. And do some more work to get the top cage to hold in place hanging from the 5 1/4" bays.

I'd also recommend cutting a blow hole, as there is not one in the "front" spot.

You could even fit a 140mm down there if you wanted to.

Sadly I did not. But I couldn't get 4Ghz stable before the mod. Made it through an entire LAN after the mod. I do remember GPU temps though.

Before: 86 C
After: 81 C

Any numbers are good, thanks. I'm still surprised the card is that high though. Does the 560 Ti normally run hot? (Wonder if I might be getting spoiled by my card & cooler...)

EVGA's 560 Ti uses the reference design with a smaller heatsink and single fan. I run it on auto and it's overvolted a bit...doesn't get as hot @ 900Mhz/1.000V. I wanted the MSI or Gigabyte SOC, but Newegg had a sale week one for $220 shipped w/ 2 free games so I jumped. Here's a shot of my temps after playing BC2 for a couple hours. Got up to 83C this time. The aux temp's from the board and would read 60C before the mod. IIRC, CPU's would hit closer to 75/78 too. I probably would never have done the mod had I got a nice 760 that could do 4 @ 1.25. frown.gif But at least it's all stable now. biggrin.gif

What does everyone think about using the bottom inlet fan as an exhaust fan. Some mod's that I am doing would make this is a useful change.

I am worried about there not be good airflow because of the front of the case being blocked.

On a side note, has anyone fitted third party fans to the front fan caddy. I bought two Thermalright x-silents to go in there and they just do not fit! If you kinda jam em in there, then the caddy doesnt go on to the case again. Very annoying!

That would not be a good idea at all. You would be sucking the fresh air from the front 2 fans out the bottom and it wouldnt get to your gpu.

That doesn't matter. GPU will be watercooled. and the false shelf seperates that bottom fan from the one above it which would cool the other comps. I have a 240 rad underneath false shelf and looking to exhaust that heat using bottom intake as exhaust.
