Well this really isn't a mod but I replaced the side fan with a high CFM from Thermaltake that moves 72.5CFM vs the stock 80mil that probally moved like 15CFM. Spins at 4800rpm when I crank it up but lowers my GPU temps roughly 2-3C. Knocks about 1C of my CPU as well.

yeah it sucks, everytime i shut my door my whole room will heat because of all the hot air bursting out of my case, specially the 8800, god those coolers are efficent, mine only gets about 75c when gaming

a cool mod though is too add a fan where your drive bay covers are. i had to put acutal covers back on though, i needed a place to store my extra psu cables

I didn't know you were into case modding Setishock! I have an Antel 900 project coming along slowly. I have about 4 more holes I need to cut, then I plan on smoothing and straightening the current holes. I didn't do too good of a job, since this is my first time holding a Dremel, but it's fun.



Edit: If your wondering about the dust, it's because I used the wrong cutting wheel that was eaten up by the metal in my case, which you can see from the leftover dust at the bottom. I got the right wheel now though.

if you have a forced air system, you could drill a 4" hole in the side of your case, and connect it to the a/c vents. that would be really cool.

Cutting holes so I can route wires on the other side of the case. The Antec 900 is one of the worst cases for cable management.

Haha I just got Lian-Li mobo case and will soon be ordering the mineral oil. I am so pumped right now. On top of the aquarium, I am going to install a second 200mm exhaust, and keep my tuniq tower on my CPU.
