Default Small mod on my Gigabyte Aurora 570

Just cut a 120mm hole in the top of my case panel for a second intake fan.

I have two 120mm exhausts in the back of the case and only one 120mm intake so I figured I'd even things up.

Now, on to the pics.












As soon as I get home after spring break I'll get pictures up of everything put back together.

Stay tuned for pics of the fan powered on for sweet blue led action.

Awesome job. Very clean.

Usually the top should be exhaust, since heat naturally rises. But as you said, you already have 2 x 120mm rear exhaust.

All he did, was cover up the fan with a fan grill.
