I just recently got a new case. It's a Raidmax Scorpio 868 (Silver).

Well, I'v never modded a case before. Had about 5 fans inside my old case, but without much orginization, a couple intake a couple exhaust (not including the cpu hsf).

I cut out the four intake grills in the front bottom of the case, installed 4x 80mm fans with aim sight type grills, and cut out a portion of the front bezel to allow better airflow. (Don't worry, it still looks good :P) This case also came with 1x intake 80mm fan on the side, 2x 80mm exhaust fans on the back, and 2x 80mm PS fans on either end.

I forgot I also have a system blower underneath my Radeon 9800 pro. Doing exhaust.

Right now I am in the process of adding a blow hole at the top of the case (cause we all know hot air rises). Here are some pics:



Without front grills removed


Front fans after case grill has been cut out and normal grill + fans installed

Top part where I am cutting a hole.



The stock grills kill airflow when you put a fan in those slots, so I had to remove em :) Same with the front part of that bezel, lots more airflow without it in the way.

Whatcha think? I am thinking about adding a few more fans to the glass side panel, but gonna see how airflow is first. I am also going to remove the back grills from the two fans included in the back.

I think that, even without seen the final pix, you have enough fans and you can probaly take the existing fans and run them at 7v to quiet the thing down.
