masterbox 5 lite rgb modification

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

maybe a really stupid question, but i had some kind of a idea. my rig during folding with front panel on gets too hot for me, so I'm thinking of changing it. now my question is the following: would i be able to fit a mesh panel from for example a mb511 or mb5 on the existing mounting? i don't want to screw up my warrenty yet, so yeah...

 

thanks in advance

Hmm doesn’t look like the case is the same height as the top of the Masterbox 5 RGB has extra space for thicker rads.

I did actually find a thread saying the MB500 front panel fits on the Masterbox 5 lite (with photos) but not the other way around

 

 

 

I've also seen some good mods to the sides of the existing panel which should help significantly

No how-to tutorial on that oone.

 

This one used a dremel, doesnt look nearly as clean though.

You could also jsut remove the front panel entirely and put a dust filter on the front (makee sure to move the fans to the inside of the case rails)
