The Rear Exhaust!
With all that air coming in through the front, you
need to make sure it goes out to create that perfect air 'tunnel'.
So the most perfect place to stick these 2 80mm bad boys was in the
back. Very nicely done on Antec's part was that they already drilled
2 spots for it in the back. The only bad part was that again, they
decided to use tiny itsy bitsy holes :
After the normal penciling and masking taping,
heres the end result :
This has probably got to be the easiest and most
efficient way to get air out. It also greatly reduced the noise
level since the holes have been chopped out.
I had a spare YS Tech that I ripped out of a
Globalwin hs/fan combo so I decided to stick it in the space next to
the I/O panel right above my Geforce. Since I had my Alpha heatsink
fans suck air out, there was a tremendous amount of hot air sitting
right on top of my Geforce. The video card itself was pumping out
heat also so this was a good way to get rid of some air at the
hottest spot. I penciled, taped and drilled. I had a couple of
mistakes because this panel for some reason was very stubborn. Maybe
it was because I was getting very impatient and wanted to get the
damn thing over with :) :
