See before and after pic.

Great job and now you can look at the armor and enjoy it's clean functions.

Thanks Alan, that's what I figured. The cooler covered a large amount of the motherboard before.

I just thought it may run a few degree's cooler as it's no longer getting warmer air from the gpu. Or do you have it as an intake?

I do believe it will lower temps just slightly but the case air flow and heat convection should improve as well. Even the ram will get better air flow.

Nice 1
I've just bought one of those Antec spot fans just t get a bit more air around the cpu socket and Northbridge heatsink. They don't get really hot but the cooler the better enit

Paul that does look a lot cleaner, good idea. Having a new daughter must have stimulated your thinking.

Lol thanks Gary

Ryan, Its pulling in air from outside the front of the case and I chucked an exhaust fan on the back, temps are looking good so far, it's hard to say as it was a lovely warm day here, but to give you an idea the cpu temps were the same today as what they were on a cold day when I tested it before.

I had it set up before so it was pushing the air out the back, so it would have been using the warm air from inside the case, now its drawing air from outside the case at the front and pushing it inside and then the exhaust fan is hopefully sending it back out.
