Ok guys i made the fan look alot nicer now. Check it out at

www.xanga.com/productreviews2

That fan cover came from this case:

http://www.ewiz.com/detail.php?name=CA-VP2-RED

Long story short after i bought it and set it all up, i went to work and came home and the front of the viper case was broke. I didn't want to throw it out and i couldn't mod it on the front cause i tried to so i wasted 2 hours today to make it into a 120mm fan cover.

Yeah, No air is getting in through a chunk of plastic. Take that thing off, Get yourself some ROUGH grit sand paper and have at it for about 15 minutes, Get a proper grill and it'll be a good mod.

I know its purpley brown but thats cause its on that steel or whatever.

Air still gets in and out cause the fan is not completely covered and the front and back of the cover aren't touching the case cause there lifted up.

May I make a constructive suggestion? I have modded 3 cases, and ruined 2 of them due to not being prepared... the third one turned out good, I just didnt like it, so threw it away.

Get about 30 bucks together, go to the local hardware store, and buy some paint, a little lexan, and anything else you may need. Dont half a$$ it, it will just turn out looking like you... half a$$ed it.

Not to be mean, but are you retarded? You first didnt do your homework and look up how to properly cut a hole in your case. Then you think you solved your problem when you cover half the fan with plastic and prevent air flow. You should just finish the hole with a dremel and then smooth the edges. It would look ALOT better than.

P.S. Take electronic components out of case before you mod.

Well if you can, you should do so and do it fast.
