    Went to wal-mart today and found this black mesh desk organizer for under $10. After it is cut from the framing it will yield 453 sq. In. of mesh or 3.14 sq. ft. Unless you need one big sheet, this sould cover most holes you cut for venting.

    eh, the holes are small and the mesh is tougher, I'll stick with my mesh from mnpctech! but creative usage of materials!

    I did order U-channel from MNPCTECH, but they only had silver mesh. (even though you can paint it).
    I will have a BIX 360 & 240 rad mounted inside my Rocketfish and both will be sucking outside air into the case. It will get the job done by letting air pass through it.

    it doesn't look very restrictive and i'm shure once you remove the border the mesh become's very pliable

    eh, I'd still think that actual modder's mesh si much more pliable

    you should see the stuff I have... you can like flick it and it will bend a tiny bit heh, makes it easier to bend by hand (using a mallet + table edge)

    who knows though :p, I'll stick with painting mine, its not that much work, atleast for me

    I don't mind using a pair of pliers knowing it would be stronger. In fact if modders mesh only takes a flick i'd think twice about using it.
