Enhance cooling!

Get rid of those ****ty metal grilles/meshes covering your intake/exhausts!

Most cases come with thick, crappy grills on the case locations.

By cutting these off with a pair of shears (or even the wirecutter i used), you can :

a) Increase airflow

B) DRAMATICALLY reduce sound level of your fans. <-Seriously

It's tough on your hands if you use a wirecutter, but there's nothing wrong with a ghetto solution.

wow, thanks for the tip..can't believe no one has seemed to thought of this idea yet?

just came to me

Fans were iritatingly loud. Loud annoying whine.

Not now. and my case temp is lower, too,

I think people did it, but just never bothered to mention it.

I dont have a dremel, but when i figured out i could do it with wirecutters, i jumped on it.

Everyone should do it.

Yeah, I have like 6 fan punchout things I have to cut out, but this is a new case, so I will let it be for a while. Besides, other than my GF4 cooler and my Thermaltake Volcano 7+, I have seven other fans blowing in my computer. So, if temp starts risin in it, then I'll cut it, but for now, they stay.:D
