Default Hafx 2.0

While waiting for my boss to finally decide if I can take a few of the old server cases. I decided to start modding my own case at home. With the help of my fiance and a birthday gift. She gave me a new 120.3 rad and a pile of new 120mm fans for all the push pull I can handle. This is a quick pic of what she used to look like.

All those fans. They were begging to be cleaned up.

I thought the hdd cage was attached by screws. Silly me. Those are rivets. Gone you go. Dremmel some holes. Now there is room in the front.

With the front cleaned up and I made some room. I moved my old 120.2 rad there.

With the hdd cage gone I had to find a new home for my ssd. Those little fellas will go just about anywhere. Infact, I moved mine to the cable management section.

This left only the new rad to be mounted. Naturally I placed it where coolermaster designed it to go. I added a fan grill to the single 120mm to avoid possible hose and fan collisions.

The loop was then completed. I will post a final picture of the build when I get home from work. This took me longer than I was hoping a mod would take. But it was still fun.
