    So I have the VA8000BWS Black case and I need a new side panel with a nice fan on the door to cool my GPU down.

    Now I have been researching the A2400 and the reviews aren't very good and it is actually pretty old too so I wouldn't feel crazy about purchasing it. :/

    So with that being said, would you guys be able to help me find a new side panel for my case? I at least haven't been getting much luck on my search for one. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.

    I didn't even know you could buy side-panels by themselves. I doubt there are any third-party manufacturers of side panels so if you want it to fit without any tinkering or modding your stuck with whatever thermaltake is offering.

    What's bad about the A2400? If it's just the fan then you can buy the side-panel and just replace the fan with something that performs the way you want.

    They stopped making them ages ago, the only real way you going do it is get lucky on ebay or buying the fan and putting it on. I got a fan for mine i keep meaning to fit never got around it it and it's loads better than the TT fan.

    He might be in the same place as me picked one up without the side fan, How ever if he got one with the fan and the fan failed just pick another fan up.

    hehe that's the fan i have here lol. Problem is cutting the metal and plastic are a little thicker than most.

    Note to OP be careful as some CPU coolers will come in contact with the fan.
