Default New fan - puts me at 11 total fans

My eleventh fan:

I added a 92mm exhaust fan to the right-side panel, to aid in cooling the HDD's. Although it doesn't appear to be moving a whole ****-load of air, so I may need to buy a better fan.

Pics:








I cut it using only a Dremel with two cutting discs. I then sanded and cleaned up the cut a bit with a sanding stone for a drill.

I'm really happy at how round the hole is.


Man...this modding thing.......it's got me by the balls now, LOL

EDIT: I screwed up on one of the holes, and had to drill another right beside it. Apparently my fan grill moved a hair while I was punching the holes.

EDIT 2: WHOA! I just looked at Everest, and it seems to have cooled both of my harddrives down around 4 - 5*C.

Yeah but I'm not too concerned there, as it's not really visible. My desk is in a corner and you can't see it unless you stick your head between the computer and the wall.

Anthrax - are you including ALL fans or just case fans? I including my PSU, CPU, and GPU fans aswell.

If you have 13 case fans alone in a mid-tower...daaayum

I always have music on. And if I don't, I'm playing games.

The noise doesn't bother me, and it isn't really that noisy anyway.
