Your making me feel like hacking up my expensive Corsair 800D case, I know I would make a proper mess out of it but that new fan grill looks awesome.. Really can not wait to see this thing finished.

Man, I have a ton of respect for your artist innovation as well as your skills. Keep up the great work, and I wish I had the guts to chop up my 800D :P

Thanks for the comments guys!

Just a thought for Corsair's design engineers, the 140mm fan mounted on the HD hot swap bay relies on air drawn up to the mid section of the chassis by the other 140mm fan AND perforated chassis floor. A better solution would be perforated holes in the side panel over the fan's location. Draw in more cool air and eliminate the plastic "duct-like" enclosure altogether.

Addtronics was one of the first to implement "cross flow" drive bay cooling. They gave you the option to mount fans on both sides of the bay. Both side panels were perforated over these fans. It was great way to isolate cooling for your HDs.

You know what...I've been looking at those HWC grills and to be honest, I prefer the first "block-more-air-but-looks-sexy" design.

The design just seems to flow better with the logo and text in there...it looked right.


Either way, once again the skill is shown in just the concept of this casemod....I look forward to watching this develop.
