    For those of you like me,who have bought a nice high end case that look good but just dont provide the best cooling,and to those who dont have a fan port on the side of the case,and your wondering if it makes a difference.Heres what i did,and i have positive results....I have a RAIDMAX 901-XE a very nice looking case that has 120mm intake fan in the front,and a 120mm fan in the rear.Its a case i didnt want to chop and cut to add fans,But i figured WHAT THE HELL!! either i do this and hopefulls it works and knocks my temps down,or i fry the system eventually sence i am overclocking...Id rather ruin a case then destroy the whole system...So i grew some cahones,and broke out the mini hack saw and drill,and got to cutting this $150 case(wish i had before and after pics of the modding) BUT i do have some speed fan results,and here they are...THESE TEMPS ARE WITH THE SYSTEM AT IDLE 5 MINUTES AFTER BOOT LOAD...



    In my conclusion:
    Now i know its not fancy water cooling,or huge heat sinks.BUT sometimes its the small things that get you where u need to be..
