Default Re: How yo fit a fan on the P182 case?

I took out the center HDD compartment and installed a 120mm fan right next to the bezel, which pushes air directly onto my 8800GT... seems to work pretty well... my GT stays right at 50C under load (Crysis, 3Dmark06).

I could never get a fan to fit on the front side of the case that blows right on the lower HD cage. Then later when I upgraded to the powersupply I have in my sig I had to take out the middle fan that seperates the two lower chambers. With the side pannel on the case would become very warm.

I also had the middle HD chamber empty with an fan in that location so it would blow right on the GPU's.

I have no such problems with cooling with my new case. It's so big inside it's not funny. The mother board tray makes your full size mother board look like a mini atx LOL.

182<b> has 120mm fan slots all around. However the bottem compartment does not place the fan in the front, but rather inside that plate infront of the PSU.

Yeah theres really no need, I can feel a lot of pressure from that vent what with the fan behind my drives

Unless you have a long PSU and want drives down there in which case you cant fit a fan in the middle.
