    Well, the first thing I did was removing the back fan and replacing it with one of the two UV 120mm fan. Then I removed one of the two HDD cages and installed a 120mm X 35mm fan at the bottom for extra intake. and finally I used the included fan bracket to install the second 120mm UV fan on the side of the front HDD cage.

    So, now the setup is like this... 120mm fan - HDD - 140mm fan.

    Later I will post pics....:cool:

    Very nice job. Did you get any pictures of the other side? (Nice case of yours in the gallery by the way).

    thanks, friend!:toast:

    btw my case in the gallery has none of the features offered by the armor case or any of the modern cases around... imaging that the :rockout:XazerIII:rockout: I am using is about 6 years old and it was the super tower :cool: of its time.... so cable management was a pain!:twitch:

    I kind of feel the same way. I love my Armor, but wish I had the option of the new features like removable MB tray etc. I have the same cable management holes behind the motherboard tray, but mine were done with a dremel by me. But still happy with my decision at the time.

    Very nice machine you built for your cousin. He should be very thankful and happy.

    well, I have not powered this build up, yet. However, in my PC, on which I use the same mobo and the 9700 with an e6420, the temperatures are great.... The picture shows temps on current OC, while on idle! :cool:
