Cosmos 1000 mod. Need advice.
 
If you have a cosmos 1000, you know it doesn't have enough air intake. That's why with the Cosmos 1010, they added a side 120mm fan. Well I don't want to do something that's permanently an eyesore if I mess up so I decided to find a spot where i could mess up, but still hide it.


If you have a cosmos 1000, imagine the area I'm talking about.

In the front of the case below the dvd drive areas and even more frontal than the hard drive enclosures is a sheet metal piece with no holes in it. In front of that (on the very front,) is a mesh black screen.

I was thinking that I could take the thing apart, drill holes in that area, and install a 120mm front intake fan that would go through the black mesh (as a filter) and increase intake airflow without it being an eyesore. If you look there, there's definitely enough room to install a 120mm, 140mm, maybe even bigger fan.

What do you all think? DiscipleDOC please help me out on this one.

Edit: kind of what like this guy did, only make air come through the front (to the right of the fan he installed)

BTW Raiden. It sounds like you have a good idea there. I would also think about having an intake in the bottom of the case below the hard drives. And tidy up dem wires, dammit :D

1. It's not my case.
2. There's already holes in the bottom of the case but not enough room to put a second fan.
3. The only place that has room for a second fan is that front place where I would drill holes in.

whatever air you pump in the front is just gonna get sucked out the top

At best it will cause dead air.

If you want more airflow cant you cut another hole at the base for a 92mm fan so you have all the air going in mostly one direction?

Personally I'd build a chimney on it, no fans.

The Patriots still would have lost,

pfff losers.
