    You should put a fan controller in there and replace the knobs with those pirate ship steering wheels.
    Pretty sure those are Mega Blocks or something, not Legos :p

    eh they do the same thing... and you can combine them with Legos as well. (i do prefer the Lego brand better, the quality is better)

    looks like an awesome mod in the making

    I'd like not to think what would happen if one of the smaller pieces came loose and got jammed in one of the fans during a stress test but I can't help it :ohwell:

    Maybe use longer blocks from the right side that come closer to the video card and rebuild the left side to see if ou can get it closer too.

    my current case Xigmatek Asgard
    i make it to place an intake fan since the front bezel has little space that aint allowed fan to attach on it :D
    i tear the steel then i paint it with blue to prevent rust, and as usual i use zip ties to hold the fan
