I have a Coolermaster Wavemaster case and I am wanting to get some more air moving in there; I am going to punch out the top USB, firwire, and audio ports and put the fan there. I was wondering if anyone had any pictures of this done with the same case.

Thanks.

It's the exact same contraption for the CM stacker's blow hole. I can take a lot of pictures for this I guess. Now, finding that fan assembly is a bit much, as I couldn't find one for sale on their site. But the Wavemaster LE comes with it as it seems.

Q: How do I change the I/O function panel on the top of the Wave Master?
You can easily unscrew I/O function panel and change it with a 80X80 mm casefan.
I think the mesh looks better, so try and find that on their site.

Earlier versions of the Wave Master came with only the I/O Function Panel. I thought this was a poor design and was happy to see they added the 80mm fan option later. Switching them out is just a matter of 4 screws.

The mesh screen for the fan has recessed brackets to allow for a flush mount finish.

When I built my machine, I wanted it to be as quiet as possible. I used rubber and silicone dampeners where I could. Some are more effective than others and I changed the configuration of some of my "washers", but this gives you an idea.

If you are going to paint or powder coat, it would be a good excuse to hide those screw slugs. Preparation is the key to a quality finish.

I think the fan is much more functional and aesthetically pleasing than the function panel with a myraid of wires and cables hanging out of it.
