Default fan in optic drive of HAF X ( pics)

hey guys,

so i was looking in my computer through the window and the only thing i could really see was the huge housing that goes over the graphics card, and i decided i didnt like it so i took it out. it had a 120mm coolermaster R4 fan inside it, so i had this fan and wanted to mount it some where else, i was looking around tring to find a spot for it and i see this huge cave where the optic drive go. perfect, so this is what i did, its freaking genius if i do say so my self.

First i took all the metal taby things off


then i took all the screens off and moved a hot swap bay to the top row to get it out of the way, and i mounted the fan to one of the front grills



fan perfectly centered



then i installed it



and put the other grills on



and here it is installed completely




and a hole front shot of my Cooler Master Blue LED HAF X turned out awesome i think, took about 15 minutes.

Not too shabby, nice little mod
Now maybe switch up the colours a little lol, throw in some white or purple or SOMETHING lights to go with the blue!
