    Default Viper 2 case

    This thing needs some serious revamp on cooling! it comes with a rear 120mm and an 80mm in the front. Any ideas to help me get cooler?

    You could mod the case and fit some more fans in the top or side not as easy as it sounds. Cable management may help a little, or if funds allow buy a new case which offers better cooling. Last resort take the side panel off and get a large fan blowing air directly into your case(by no means a long term solution)

    It defiantly has the room in the top for fans, it would need modded for them but it could help both side panels have vents but no way to attach fans to them. Suppose they could be modded too. Thought about water but my luck it would leak haha.

    If i was you unless you can afford a new case id go for modding your original. Even if you can afford a new case you could still try modding your case sure it would be beneficial. Take a look at this case its a great cooling solution for air cooled cases.http://www.ebuyer.com/UK/product/118...FSdPEgodMjt0zQ

    Update, I have changed out the 80mm fan in the front of the case with a 120mm fan and changed out the stock cooler with a Zalman on my CPU.
    Now I just need the courage to cut my new case to put that 80mm in the top exhausting air out.
    Close only counts in horse shoes and hand grenades!
