I'm new at this and would like to know how to cool my Enlight 7237 case I need to know where to place and the size of the fans . The case came with one fan in the lower front.
Don't want to fry things if possible.

That is the same one I am using. Ditch that fan that came in the front and get something with a little more ummphh. As a matter of fact, get two and put the other one on the rear just below the PSU.

I have the same case. I also replaced the stock front one with a stronger fan. Then placed a powerful 80mm in the spot right below the Power supply sucking out. It is also a good idea to drill out those little pin holes in the bottom of the front cover. They are useless for airflow the way they come. I widened them to about 6mm and it helped my temps alot. Recently I also cut out a whole on the side of the case for an 80mm fan blowing right over my PCI and agp slots. With each additional fan that I added, my system and CPU temps dropped 1-2C, with a total drop of about 5-7C

Hey mike, here is what I did with my Enlight 7237. I mounted a 120mm Nidec 112CFM fan in the front. I also drilled all the pin holes in the front of the case out to .240" (just shy of 1/4 inch).

I just started a case mod on my enlight 7237 and I also drilled out the holes in the front but I put a 92 mm sunon and am going to add a extra fan to the back to have 2 I also clipped the grill off on the ps and put a cage
but what do you think of this idea Since my puter sits on a little table next to my desk I was going to extend the feet by about 1/2" or so and put one or 2 120mm bolted through the bottom with filters has anyone toyed with that idea yet? Maybe directed right at the processor .

He probably used tin snips or wire cutters to remove the perforated metal circle that covers the power supply fan output and replaced it with a less obstructive metal grill like you see on case fans.

Hinge out
