    I spent the better part of the afternoon here, placing the middle fan on the bottom of my case, swo all three slots are filled and to get more air in there.

    What took so long is, I needed to get rid of that adapter from ASUS for the chassis power button, HDD LED, Reset button, and front panel LEDs, and plug those teeny-tiny things directly in.

    My hands are not made for such fine & delicate work, and I needed to take quite a few "Frustration Breaks"

    So I took that Corsair blue LED fan from the rear exhaust and placed it with his brothers on the bottom.
    They all spin at a max speed of 1713 RPM.

    I then took the original fan, that has no LEDs, from In Win and put that back. It spins at 1560 RPM.

    Since the bottom of the case was only about 1/2 and inch from the table, I found two books and placed them under each foot of the case, one front, one back. Now the case is about 1 1/4 of an inch above the table:)

    It got me to thinking, maybe instead of a new case, find someone that can make me thicker feet, out of wood, then put some felt on the bottom of those(reduce chance of scuff marks on the table).

    HI,
    Sticky felt will help any foot from scuffing something heavy like a case :)

    Yup sounds like a good idea, couple pieces of oak, light stain, two coats of clear coat, felt glued to bottom, done. Nice idea Cliff. :)

    Good idea Steve ...:) Or get a Enthoo Primo Special Edition and you won't need them. Click image for larger version.

    Set up is a little similar, but I have 3 fans on the bottom, and my AIO is at the top.
    I have the 303 in black:)
    You see how low it is right?
    You see how the board sits recessed?
    The airflow from bottom to top and out the back, doesn't even really get a chance to flow over the board.
