    Update: Drilling holes in my case directly above the fan reduced overall temperatures 10C, it went from 70C down to 60C during the same one hour drive. I have speedfan 4.34 installed and noticed if I change the fan % it makes the fan run harder -- I'll have to look into this more.

    I think that I've seen someone do it, although I could be wrong. It may have been an Opus. Either way, the guy had to get another aluminum plate, like the one the Mobo is mounted to, and slide it into the top part of the case. I wish I could find the link to the thread.

    Any pics? I dont think I would know how to drill holes evenly without a drill press...

    Ive also managed to lower the temp by 10C, but I used cardboard ducts on the inside so that the cpu fan sucks from the outside air.

    No pics, but I used a punch tool before drilling so the drill bit wouldn't wander. Drilling aluminum is really easy with a hand drill.

    Anyone think it would be possible to fit 2 2.5" harddrives in the mo-co-so case?? or is it just too tight?

    I have a mo-co-so case (and system) and I have two 2.5 drives mounted under the M2 ATX. Fits fine (with their mounting bracket).
    PDP1170/TRS80/Atari800XL/Amiga500/286/486/P2/P4/C2D/i7 still a newb (but an old newb, been doing this a while) working my way up to "Complete Newb"

    What mounting brackets? Do they come with the case or are they sold seperately?

    I talked to the guys over there at mo-co-so and they basically added the capability of adding a second 2.5" harddrive for only 25 bucks. I just wish i bought from them to begin with to be honest. They have the best customer service of all the MinITX equipment suppliers i've seen.

    $25 is quite a bit for a piece of bent metal. I wonder if something diy can be fabricated...
