The 23cm fans are pretty good. Huge, quiet, and move a lot of air.
Since I can't find a replacement for the one that threw a blade, I fixed it! I plastic welded the blade back on and then braced it with a small metal bracket & hot glue. I'm surprised but it's running fine-no vibration. It's a good thing these are low RPM!

i got an armor the only mod i did that i haven't seen anyone else do was i took the rear expansion slot light switches and cut them so they fit into one of the front slots with the middle peace out. it looks really cool if i had a camera i would take a pic. i also plan on drilling some wire management holes in the motherboard tray, one behind the cpu 8 pin and another behind the 24 pin. could you post some pics of what you did to the front.

Good Luck

Drill bits for wood are no good for plastics, especially for bigger holes. Wood bits and cutters have a positive rake angle, which snags on plastic and causes it to split and tear.

A hand drill can be better for plastics, for slow and controlled drilling. Fast drilling will melt the plastic.

In your travels with the Amour, have you seen any site that has the 23cm fans? One of mine on the V9 case threw a blade and I'm having difficulty finding a replacement. Even Thermaltake doesn't have it on there web site.

Contact Thermaltake directly by email, they're actually pretty good usually with spare parts.
