    Eleven 120mm fans, around 1700 CFM is mounted in in this beast plus six other high-RPM 80mm fans. It kept the system cool but at a cost of nearly opening up a dimensional rift in the time-space continuum.

    My trial at something similar proved that if the air is movin' to fast thru the case then it can't pick up enough heat to dissapate it. :hammer:

    lmao, I saw that before. Hmmm... I always wondered if one could make a case with one or more sides made completely out of air filter. Wonder how well that would dissipate heat, although the noise would suck... :?: . : peace2: Mista K6

    here is a quick little mod that i think looks pretty cool. It cost me about 10 bucks, i had to buy 3 drive covers and some velcro to hold it in place, o and some Certs, even cheaper if you still have the covers!! I took my normal cd drives and made them very stealthy, this project took about a few hours because i had to paint them and apply a glossy coat. I think it turned out decent. Although this was easy there is a lil bit of ghetto in this. if you notice the top drive there is a hole in the cover. thats because since my cd-r drive doesnt eject normally i have to open it by hand with a paperclip, like the amish do. not too bad and it looks cool! hit me back with any questions

    That looks pretty good actually, and its a nice alternative to some of the more expensive covers. Just a flash, if you really wanted to go cheap, you could get some aluminum sheet metal (1mm thick), but it to the size of the bay, then secure it using a pivot pin in the middle, with a spring on the side opposite the eject button. Then you could add a little piece of plastic or metal to make contact with the ejector button. That way, you could tap the panel, and the tray would slide out, then you could push it back in. It'd be cool. Thanks for the pics and info Moctezuma05, keep em coming. : peace2: Mista K6

    P.S., Zer0, what foam are you talking about? THe stuff I've seen is quite thick, do you have a picture?

    I'd often wondered as to how an Amish CD-ROM drive worked:thumb:
