Hi everyone. I just built a new rig for myself and I'm giving my old one to my mom. Here are the specs of my old PC: Antec SLK2600AMB Mid-Tower case, ASUS P4P800 MB, Intel P4 2.GHz CPU w/HT, Ultra X-Connect 500W PSU, Radeon 7000 PCI 64MB graphics card, and 2048MB of PC3200 Kingston Value RAM.
Because my folks have no AC in their house and it will get pretty warm there during the summer I would like to install some larger 120mm fans in the front of the case in the empty drive bay slots, and in the rear, if possible. I'm not sure how to accomplish this without cutting or drilling something, because it looks kind of tight in there.
Here are a couple shots of the front panel:
I would also like to install a 120mm fan here in the rear of the case to replace the 80mm that's already there.
I have no experience doing any of this so keep this in mind when you reply. I have never done anything like this before so if you offer a suggestion please try to be as detailed as possible (like describing HOW I could cut a hole, install some mesh, drill, etc.). Links to other threads or sites where people have already done this would also be appreciated. Pictures would be a plus.
Also, I would like this to look somewhat decent once I'm done so please don't offer to "cut a hole in the plastic drive bay covers" or "zip tie a fan in there!" (I've gotten enough of these asinine replies on other forums already).
