Hello All

I have been arround this site for a while but never made an account but I finally came up with an idea for a plexiglass case and had some questions.

1. How thick does the plexi glass need to be?
2. If the disk drive is moved could air flow be revirsed?

3. I want the HDD to still be removable but need to know how to move the plug it plugs into
4. I also do not know how to relocate the daughter board "ROL"

I think that does it for now. I will get some diagrams up of my design idea a little later.

Alex S.

Your red arrows show the stock cooling system as pushing air in, and it does not. The stock system pushes air out as well.

exactly, you are not changing the airflow direction. the stock fan pulls air through the shroud and therefore through the stock heatsinks

if you are going to do what you say, i would definitely do a xclamp mod to relieve the stress of the clamps

to extend the stuff you can desolder the connector and then solder in wires to go from the motherboard to the connector
