Thermaltake V9 Airflow case mod.

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
Ok so the airflow in my case is terrible, but im going to try and mod it to improve it...

Case Mod Thermaltake V9

-Paint grey bits black (i assume with spray paint).
-Remove HDD cage
-Red dot (install 3*5.25 to 4*3.5 adapter, will hold 4 HDDs and fan in the front) Coolermaster 4in3
-Green dot, 120mm Hyper212+ CPU cooler fan
-Right of green dot, replace fan with an enermax fan.
-Black dot, install Hyper212+ CPU cooler fan with double green LED coolermaster fans.
-Cut bits out at green dot to make room for 120mm fan, also make holes
-Need dust filter at green dot.
-May need fan pin to molex adapter

Suggestions on improvement/other things i could do? I could do with a fan controller, problem is i have no space for a 5.25, i could mod the space next to the power supply to hold it maybe (i measured it, its possible, but i would need to put some of my excess cables somewhere, but once i installe my graphics card they will be everywhere anyway...), seeing as i wont be changing fan speeds much i could keep controller on the inside.

mod cable management holes into the right of the motherboard, as well as just in front of psu, like the haf x... also I've got a tt v9b sitting next to me, was my first real case that isnt from a dell lol. Maybe you could mod the top 200 to allow for a 240mm radiator?
