Default Re: Case Log - PowerUP ATX Black

Interesting mod there kid. I did notice that you didn't cut out the fan grills.
The real estate between the holes in the grill is enough to make a difference in air flow. Besides the noise reduction you get from not having to force air through a small hole.

Agreed. I usually do it to my cases.

He wanted to, but didn't have a grill to do it with. He needs to purchase a few things and then we can continue this case.

Only on side panels. Rear and top MUST have wire grills and molding (when case is black) You know this as well as I do.
