Is there anyway to replace the side panel with a more open one so I can get better air flow? My board has been running a tad warm and I am replacing the chipset fan with a fan/heatsink but I'd like to add a side panel fan if possible.

Is there anyway to do this?

Thanks

Yeah but thats not really helping since I don't want to have to actually cut the side panel myself I don't have the steady hands for that.

Just want to be able to order a precut side panel with at least 1 fan opening in it that I can just then install

Hello Corwin_Trueblood

Side panels are pretty much case specific, so finding a replacement panel for your case may be a real crap shoot. There are some sites like CrazyPC that offer case modding supplies, but finding a pre-made side cover for your case will probably be just about impossible.

Have you looked into using more efficient fans in place of the ones you have?

Not yet but I am waiting for my new chipset/heatsink to come in the mail so I can replace the old one that isn't working right

Though the case I have is a Lian-LI PC7 Silver Aluminum case
