    PC Case modding

    I want to get a better airflow with this case, but how would i do this?
    I can place an intake and an outtake but i would need a new front panel, this is a Mid ATX case i think.




    (Front fan)

    I am asking for help, not that you buy a whole new case.

    Like you said, you'd need a new front pannel. Maybe put an outtake on the top position you have marked, so the hot air from your power supply will get blown out right away...

    ​If there's nothing electronic blocking it, you could theoretically just Dremel or cut out a hole from the front panel and mount a 120mm in the lower HDD slots.
    When the earth is changed into a humid dungeon,
    In which Hope like a bat
    Goes beating the walls with her timid wings
    And knocking her head against the rotten ceiling;
    When the rain stretching out its endless train
    Imitates the bars of a vast prison
    And a silent horde of loathsome spiders
    Comes to spin their webs in the depths of our brains,
    All at once the bells leap with rage
    And hurl a frightful roar at heaven,
    Even as wandering spirits with no country
    Burst into a stubborn, whimpering cry.
    — And without drums or music, long hearses
    Pass by slowly in my soul; Hope, vanquished,
    Weeps, and atrocious, despotic Anguish
    On my bowed skull plants her black flag.

    Ugh, you need a Back fan and a fan under your video card, you want your Back fan to Pull air in, your Power supply to push it down, your CPU to push it out! and your a fan under the video card to Push the air out the back again. my setup is kind like that,1 puling in, Supply pushing down, CPU fan pulling in and the 2nd fan pushing down on the video card, and the video card pushing down and the last fan pushing out of the PC. keep's it really cool i hope this help's! if not ill take picture's and show!

    First thing you want to do is block off those honeycomb holes next to the PCI-E slots. They do nothing but let stagnant air escape. Then you want to mount a fan next to the CPU blowing air out like you pictured. You don't exactly need a front mounted fan if you have a decent rear fan.

    After what i understand you can have 1 fan in the front, 2 on the side and 1 in the back, so why not just get 4 fans?

    Why would i need 4 fans when 2 will be enough, 1 intake at the front, and 1 outtake at the end.
    I just need an airflow trought my case

    It won't be very effective because you have a massive hole in the side panel. My advice would be to get 2 slower fans with high static pressure for the side panel, and 2 high speed fans for front and rear. That would give you best airflow. Having front and rear alone won't work as well as it should because air seep through the sides. Imagine having your motherboard cpu etc just lying on your desk with just one fan on each end. It''s not going to be very effective now is it?

    I decided to make a new front panel from acrylit with 2 big fans in it to blow air inside my case and then put 2 rear outtake fans and one at the back too

    I suggest having air being taken in from the side panel.
