on the list is a front 120mm blowhole, pushing air in. I use
a Sunon fan that blows about 70cfm, which I found at Nerdsbyte.
I did this blowhole with my jigsaw as described in my previous
And Windows article. There's nothing special about it really.
There is already a filter inside the front bezel of the Addtronics
case so I just slapped a fan guard on each side and that was
also enlarged the ventilation holes on the front bezel to make
sure the 120mm fan has enough room to breath. The back 92mm
exhaust (there by default) also suffered the same surgery. This
is a simple mod that cost nothing and can greatly increase the
efficiency of your fans.
far so good, now what I need is more exhaust. I have about 160cfm
of intake (2x92mm @ 44cfm each + 1x120mm @ 69cfm) for only about
75cfm of exhaust (1x92mm @ 44cfm + PSU 80mm @~30cfm). The best
solution would have been a nice exhaust blowhole on the top
of the case. But I don't have the space. I have my floppy drive
and hard drive in the upper section of the case leaving no space
for a fan. Instead, I decided to use two 60mm fans behind the
hard drive, over the PSU. These fans will remove hot air from
the top of the case and cool the hard drive at the same time,
80mm fans would of been better but there simply is no space
