I found a thread last night somewhat dealing with this, and I don't know if it was on this forum or what, but I cannot seem to relocate it. Nonetheless, I needed some additional opinions either way.
I have an Antec P182 case, and an Ultra X3 800w PSU. So far I've been highly impressed with both products.
Unfortunately, it doesn't look like I'm going to be able to keep the lower fan installed. The one that resides in front of the power supply. I have since relocated it to the upper area. Here is my crude paint pic.
your psu fan will keep things good. I have the same case and have been playing with it as well. Isn't there a spot for a thin 120mm fan on the front bottom? you have to pull the hard drive cage out to get to it. I think i'm going to take out the big fan in the middle lower compartment and put a thin one in front of the hard drives.
Yeah, the card I am using temporarily until the new nvidia 9 series come out will fit just fine. And even then, I can remove that upper hard drive bay and mount the fan directly on the front of the case, instead of clipped on the upper hard drive cage.
As for the bottom, the fan bracket that screws onto the fan and slides into the case can only be mounted on the PSU side and not the other, lower HDD cage side. Though I did look into it. Ha. I suppose I could finangle something to work there, but it wouldn't be pretty.
EDIT - Hmm, that is a good idea jeremy. I will check into that when I get home.
