Need more fans but love my case.

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Ok, so I have a NZXT Guardian case that I really need some more cooling on. I really like the case size and layout but I need some more cooling. I was thinking about cutting a 120m or 140m circle in the bottom of my case. And maybe adding a 60m slot on the back side of the case side. Suggestions?

Use a hole saw and a drill. You can get a fan template from mnpctech.com to make sure you have the fan screw holes properly alligned.

I put an 80mm fan in my case.

Why not put a fan at the top where you already have the space for it?

... just rig up a 120 or 140mm in the upper rack, that way you'll have 2 exhausts and 2 intakes, combined with your psu's fan and your graphics cards fan[s] it'll be more than enough airflow. I have 3 intakes and 3 exhausts but I really only need about 4, the extra two only drop my overall temps an extra degree or two.
