1st mod going back in service

My first mod is going back in service for the new board comming in. Nothing extrordinairy. It was my first when i wanted to OC my Epox 8k5a2+ and an Athlon Xp 2400+. Full tower with a 3 1/2" blow hole out the top and the back as well as a 2" out the back. A 3 1/2' in from the front as well as a 5 1/2" in from the side pannel onto the board. That gives an egual air flow except for the PSU which now gives a negitive air flow-drawing air in.( In Theory! Sounded good!)

This is the best case I've got for ventalation unless i want to do another Pet mod case! Way to busy for that.

Fans to mount-rubber grommets included-cleaning and a brand new AOA badge and we are good to go.

Here are your pics. As you can see, the tray isn't in. It's got a 2" exauast fan on it.The side panel with the 5 1/2" fan has a speaker cover for it's vent. The front intake has been drilled out as large as practicle on the inside as well as the ouside. At every point where metal contacts metal, a vibration damper has been installed. Fancey verbage for duct tape!
With the addition of the 9600Gt video card and the Freezer Seven Pro and thier fans- this thing is going to sound like a hovercraft. The duct tape is to cut down on as much harmonics as possible. Even the drives get different treatment. I used to use 1 screw just to hold it-easyier to move about. Not this one-everything is secure. Just a little more and it's ready to go!
