@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.

Sorry you are having problems with that IR_cow. 

 

Reason I stayed away from nickle systems and run copper blocks only and Automotive coolant. Coated with nothing and never clogs. woohoo.

Very nice mod for the dragon. I did mine quite some time ago. Photobucket has sense deleted my photos but I still have the case in the garage. One of the things I did different was I used 2 120mm fans but left the Louvers in place. I may have to get a system going just to put it back in service. Just to say its back in action again. lol. I have all but a mobo and proc to do it.

In Topic: Need Heatsink better cooling that fits my case

I think the best option for cooling would be this. so long as it will fit properly. I cannot measure the underhang of the front fans but I can see room beneath the fans, maybe not enough though. Check the cad drawing and see what you can measure out. Its an expensive solution but will be much better then a self contained unit such as an H100i or something similar... The only real advantage to the H100i would be that you would get it fans and all so you can relocate thje factory fan. Good luck, I hope you find a cooling solution that will get you what your looking for.
