INWIN 303 Front intake fan case mod

Recommended Posts

Hi, Basically I think I need to increase the airflow in my case as every current slot is occupied by a radiator:

Next weekend I'm going to strip it all out and spray the rear inside (currently black) white

I noticed in another thread that other peoples 1080 on water seem to play around 38 - 45C where as mine was 63C. I removed the gpu and cleaned the block and reseated it tightly and things got better to around 52C - I'm pretty sure things will get better with some air flow going into the case as the backplate does get quite hot and so does the glass panel.

 

So I decided to add a 120mm fan to the front of the case to basically sit behind the front reservoir

I've opted for a Silverstone which is white and blue and matches the build nicely and will use a front mesh cover also from Silverstone that has a snow flake on it (matches the theme, Temporal Snow! :D) and paint it white.

So heres my issue, I know how to cut a blow hole, that isn't the issue my issue is making a neat job for the front of the case. It seems I will have to put up with the mesh grill not sitting flush, or mount the grill inside the case with the fan and hope and pray the there is zero cutting issues.

 

Any have any ideas here?
