Hi Janitor,


Well, the case is only about two months old, the motherboard about the same,
the power supply about a month old, the hard drive about a month old,
the CPU and fan about two months old...not much to dust yet :smile:

That's a good idea to clean once every six months, i'll have to put that
on my maintenance list [Done].
Yes, i have a small paint brush i like to use for that. I also have a metal
handle bush i can ground while brushing.

Naw, I think people are just waiting for the next hole to be cut in something. Once the hole was decided upon as to method and cut things became like anti-climatic so everyone is waiting for the next big cut. :)

Well, yeah.....
He finished installing the fan, and he doesn't want to put a "Blow Hole" on the top of the case.

Thou.....
After looking at the pictures he posted.
He could mount another 120mm fan above the current one.
I see the Gamer cases with dual fans mounted in this manner.

If you are anything like me, I was just holding back waiting to hear that after all that preparation and planning, and once cut - the hole was in the wrong place :shock: :smile:

Hi again,


Yeah ha ha, in the wrong place, that's what i expected too ha ha.

The next hole is yet to come. I havent bought any new equipment yet though, so
im not sure how i am going to do this yet.
After raising the hard drive fan (that's right under the HD itself) up about 1/2 inch
that seems to work better too now, and i am noticing almost 10 deg C lowered temperatures
in all parts of the case, so that's pretty good i think with only one 120mm fan.
I still have another one though, so i'll probably mount that next to the previous one.
(The hard drive fan though gets it's air from inside the case).
