@Boinker - What do you mean by leaving the louvers in place? You mean the front grill with the bars? I wanted to open it up and expose the fans more. I was able to keep 2 of the 3 3.5" bays available while still fitting in the 2 120mm fans which is a win. I could put another 3.5" device or extra hard drive if I needed to. The case itself is just a classic. The biggest problem with it compared to today's cases is the lack of any real way to do decent cable management and the fact it comes with 5 x 80mm fan spots. Upgrading them to 2 x 120mm in front and 2 x 92mm in back really helps airflow and being able to use bigger, quieter fans (which reminds me I will be replacing the fan in the hot swap bay since it's the loudest thing in the case.
Yes the grille bars. I thought it would look wrong in my case but It was done in style on your part. I lost both my 3 1/2 bays. the intension of my mod was to mount water cooling internal of the case. And it worked out. just have not got anything in it as it seems I only have one system at a time. lol. But in other news its nice to see another modded dragon. thats for sure.
