Default Fan mods!

Ok I am cutting a hole for a 120mm fan in the top of my thermaltake soprano with a "nibbler". Works well and percise but SLOW. I want to put a 120mm in the front 3 bays. How do I but the 3 panels infront and cut them with what.

Ok I cut the hole and it looks decent (with 3 bays the hot glue doesnt hold at all but super glue works great, doesnt it eat plastic though) I just have to drill holes for screws and im good.

Yea superglue is notorious for eating through plastic, so just watch out. Once you get the whole thing put together and its in the drive bay, itl stay noce and solid.

Yeah it kicks *** to be honest but does the fan in the front top bays and a fan at the top of the case just cancel out or what?

I just found out the ghetto fan i had to use is really a 37db 85cfm delta fan. FTW!
