Windows 7: Front Panel Mod on NZXT H440

Front Panel Mod on NZXT H440

Whats up guys?

So im having issues with temps mainly on my GPU. i finally got to water cooling it with a Kraken G10 and Corsair H90, but even so, im still having issues with temps because of my front panel. So i have 2 140mm fans up front and my GPU and CPU rads as exhaust on the rear and top of the case. With the case front panel on, im getting about 60C on the core and 62C on the VRMs. with the front panel off, im getting 48C on the core and 51C on the VRMs. with a ~10C difference, its pretty a big deal. anywoot, i need help figuring out a way to make this case less constrictive in the front my any means necessary. only thing is, i would like to actually keep the front panel on. so far, i have ripped out all the noise dampening foam, took off the filter, and recessed the top 140mm fan roughly 2" from the front of the case. i was thinking about dremeling small slits across the front from the top to the bottom so the fans can pull air directly in from the front.

Patrick, you have built yourself one great rig. Why not get this, rather than doing the dremel mod chase
