    i forgot to take pics of it but i had to notch out the alum in the front of the base above the drive bays to allow my MCR420 to fit. also there is a foam surround on the top of the case around the exposed fans that is to help with the vibration and sound seems to be working so far the entire 8 fan group of yateloons is quieter than my single 120x38mm scythe

    this is some serious shit right here!!
    a tip: cut, size and solder the wires of your fans on the radiator together( i hope you already planned on doing this).

    after you are done, put it up on case gallery and i''l give ya a 10!!.

    keep 'em coming!
