Default Top Panel Exhaust Grill

This aluminum grill is for the top of a case. It's cnc milled from 1/4" thick aircraft aluminum. It measures 7-1/4" wide, with 4.5" opening for 120mm cooling fan.





The grill in the center is removable.

Looks good as usual. What is the edge width and what will the starting price be?

TBH I think that looks kind of weird on a 360. However, if you did 360 mods that would be amazing. Things like custom colors, cutting windows, etc. You'd probably get pretty good business with it too.

Could always make a smaller one so people can mod it to where they can install a fan that sucked fresh air in where the cpu/gpu heatsinks are.
