last year when i put together my first "raw" build, i didnt have enough money left over for a new case, because the original case i bought wasnt wide enough for the new cpu cooler (off less than an inch, but still off).
so i put my old rig inside the new case and sold it like that, (prolly got more money for it like that)
so i was still stuck with my old case, it was made with good quality metel, but by no means was it a name brand or even suitable for a newer rig inside it.
since my cooler needed air from sidepanel rather than exhausting out the back panel like the one i should have gotten, i had to drasticly put some powertools to this old case.
i originally was going to cut out the side panel and install plexy glass (spelling here?) and i did that, but that did not allow anywhere near enough ventalation to keep the new rig cool enough, i was getting blue screens with this setup, so i ditched the glass and tried perforated air duct (for a house) and cut that to size, now the power tools i used didnt exactly cut like i wanted them too, so its fugly stuff.
i know this solution does not work quite the way it should, but atleast it has worked so far (a year with no problems)
i just wanted to share this story here so see the "bad" reactions from the people who actually know what they are doing when it comes to cooling and the like
rip it away guys
(btw, im still using this lol)
edit: here is what it looks like when its actually on the pc while running (still ugly
