Very easy mod to do, simply found out it would fit a nice big 120mm behind it then "vivid"ed around it and drilled corner holes, then I turned it over and made a grid with a pencil on where I would drill the holes for the air.

I chose quite large holes, and not many of them. Although I think this has meant that the fan doesn't pull much air and thus makes it spin faster, meaning more noise. But the main reason I didn't drill many holes is so the fan is quite unobvious.

If I had wanted a total "unobvious" fan I should have hot glued the fan in so I didn't need the corner holes, this would have made it just look like a Dell with the nice front.

That temp moniter just doesnt mix with the case...try to modify it to mount it in a drive bay...and you could paint the case cuz the paintjob is really old from what I see...good job...another thing...when you used that pencil you should had done it from the inside of the bevel..
