Planning to do the modifications tomorrow or friday.
I'm already sure to place 1x 120mm in the top pannel and one in the bottom.
I wont use the standard 80mm outake anymore.
I also have a vga-silencer on my radeon which is also a slow outtake fan.
The psu will also have a 120mm outake.
I'm not sure if I will place 2 120mm's in the bottom or not.
Any suggestions?

Don't need the overkill. Install a temporary temp probe hanging in the middle of the case, if the temp is within 1-2C of ambient temp and runs quiet, you've done an excellent job.

I'd say two big holes at the bottom of the case even without fan will do the trick.

mm, i've experimented with that. comparison will be up in a few days

for overclocking, you need more airflow IMO. place one 120mm in the top, and a 80mm in the back that sucks air IN the case

That's what I meant; 1 fan on top; one in the back and one infront; the bottom hole if needed doesn't need a fan. It's call drawing; drafting effect.

If I'm long winded; it will be like putting a fan at the rear of the car deck to create down force.

This is what it turned out to be:








Casetemp: 34°
Cputemp: 52°
Roomtemp:32°

All fans at 7V.

If you could tug all the wirings to the other side of the case rather than using duct tape on this side, it will look much better.

34C room temp; that's pretty hot for both human and beasts; although beasts don't use computer.

Like jmke said; the rear is exhaust (out take); front intake; top blows out.

From my own air flow test; the top blower should have less pull than the rear exhaust; otherwise it defeats the use of rear exhaust.
