When the Arduino detects the temperature changing, it automatically actuates the servo to raise or lower the louvers accordingly, and the rig features a pair of supercapacitors that can store enough power to close the vents even if power is lost. There's also the all-important little red button to instantly make jaws drop.

Neat idea, but purely cosmetic.

My next case mod I had planned something like this, but more functional and controlled a little differently.

Noise reduction maybe, but i dont see why you dont just turn the fans up and down. Pretty cool nonetheless.

Automated fan switching and throttling would make much more sense. And most cpu fan headers do that already, well at least the throttling part.

All I see is the loss of a vital area for mounting rads or at least case modding fans to.
