- The case came with 2x 80mm blue LED fans (crap), and one more 120mm CoolerMaster green LED fan was installed inside the case...
The case side was cut on the side and the top.The cutout part was replaced with a 3mm plexiglass which were screwed on with hex screws.Since the case had preinstalled mesh to prevents dust buildup tho were had to be removed so the case can be cut, after the cutting was finished a new aluminum mesh was installed on all the previuous places and fitted with a plastic frame.. no glue, or silicone was used... Also the case was fitted with 4x 50mm wheels :) UPDATE: August 13. 2008. I just put an aluminum mesh on the left side of the case to prevent dust from entering the case from behind the motherboard... hopefully it will do the job (and hopefully it will not short circuit something) :D
So far this is all we have done... it obviously lacks aftermarket cooler but hopefully that will come soon. Also presently the plexiglass currently has no fan holes since i couldn't get ahold of a 12CM circular saw, but that is planned for another date. Very soon im planning on cutting out two 120mm fan holes (one at the side, one at the top), and installing two fan grills for those fans.. Silencing the case is also a tought, but at a later date... One 120mm fan was meant to be installed at the front of the case in the place of 3x 5,25" bays... THIS IS OUR FIRST EVER MOD, SO I'M PRETTY HAPPY WITH IT... HOEPFULLY MORE WILL FOLLOW SOON - HOPEFULLY WITH BETTER TOOLS :D
