-- Some more fan coverage
-- Page: 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9

   Right above the video card slot and below the power supply, we have one of our 80mm fans there acting as an exhaust.  We also have the second 80mm acting as an intake in the front.  It is held tight by the plastic casing that holds the case speaker also.  I wished this was taken out, it might give a little more room to work with in the front.  But then again, this case is huge and I don't think there is a lack of space really in any aspect of the word.

   These smaller 80mm are also extended by attaching longer wires just like their 120mm counter parts.  Both the rear exhaust and front intake are wired directly into Cliff's fan bus.  The original in PC modding, Cliff's fan bus has made many case modders enjoy the art by simplifying the connection of numerous fans.  The wires are pushed back and tucked away in good spots to avoid any extra mess inside the case.

   Pictured above is the fan bus mounted on the bottom of the case near the front.  There are 4 pairs of 12v/ground spring clips to attached any bare wire lead.  The 2 80mm fans are seen attached here at the beginning pair of clips and at the end.  I will most likely be attaching our neon bare leads to this fan bus also.  I usually leave my neon on all the time, so this is the perfect solution for an easy installation.  This centralized area for all the components to connect to make for a very neat case with the least amount of wires.  This helps a great deal in providing an open path for good airflow.
