Recently I picked up a CM Stacker case and have been busy doing some mods..

First I decided to sleeve my psu wires.. That was some heck of a job and very time consuming.. but was worth it afterwards..

Here is how that came out..

Next mod was a top blow hole.. which I used tin snips to cut.. And then used door edge moldening to cover the ruff edges with..

I also removed the rear fan grill to make the air flow better.. You can also see that there is a toggle switch in one of the pci slots.. thats hooked up to the cmos pins so I can clear it without taking the side panel off..

Now in the front I have two 120mm fans as intakes.. I also mounted my rheo for my tornado in one of the bay covers..

to be continued.. :)

edit..

You mean on the floor of the case.. ?

Thats just a vent ..But you could put anything there with some modding..

Maybe I missed something, but don't you still have to yank the battery?

Nope.. Its not required to pull the battery.. On the nf2's it was better to do so because they were more picky in the way they liked to be flashed and cleared..
