What a mess, eh? I decided that I was totally fed up with bad airflow and some fussy temperatures.

I picked up a CoolerMaster HAF 912+ case and a Seidon 240M water cooler and got to work. The water cooler rad was a difficult mount, as the case was just a little short, but with some longish screws and some patience, I got it in. Mounting the fans inside the case was a little daunting. I had to cut one down with a jigsaw. It's a very tight fit. I mounted two fans on the outside top of the case for a push pull configuration, and the rear fan had to go on the outside of the case, as well.

Here's a closeup of my machining:

And the new case, after ward:

I'm not the biggest genius when it comes to cable management, and I'm no Lady Fitz (awesome machine she's building!), but it's a heckuvalot better than it was. The idle temp is 2C over ambient, and the load temp runs around 48C. I'm waiting for the thermal paste to cure, and I'll see how the temps stack up then. It's much better than the old air cooler that was almost the size of my head.

I have to do a little bit more work, but I ran out of cable ties. I also have to build a fan splitter for the two top case fans. Right now I only have one of them running, though the two inside are running. The temps might improve later this afternoon.
Nice upgrade on case and cooling...much effort to place that Fan on top! I recon Aircooler take a huge place in a Pc Case and is a little satisfaction to have a new view on your Mobo.

The desktops are not dieing as some say.
They are just getting a good cleaning and the wiring and harness are getting neatly arranged.
Long live the desktop.

If one thinks they have to many computers they just need a bigger computer room.
Problem solved.

I have only one desktop and need more room for the peripherals.

You have hit a glancing blow on one strongly possible reason why desktop sales are so depressed. More people are keeping their present desktops instead of buying new ones with the despised Win 8 on them. Many of the people buying tablets also have desktops. I agree, desktops are far from dead.
