    My vacation has started and didn't do anything on the case yet :)
    I did practise some.

    From the start i had the idea to make the fan/rad guard just like the S21T's little brother.

    [​IMG]


    I'm already walking with that idea for 2 weeks now how to do that.
    The case is 5mm thick, brushed and black anodized aluminium.
    So i guess i can't restore the smallest scratch.
    Today i just tried to make such a fan hole in a piece of 6mm thick aluminium.


    First had to do some shopping again. (The dremel virus even got me before i started working with it)

    [​IMG]


    piece of 6mm thick garbage measured out.

    [​IMG]


    Still no idea how or what, but i've got to do it with these tools.

    [​IMG]


    Forget about a dremel in 6mm alu :p so lets prepare for the jigsaw.

    [​IMG]


    Only had a bad quality metalsaw, the woodsaw worked better :/

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]


    After sawing, the dremel works out fine.

    [​IMG]


    Grinding the edges from the Bitspower radguard. (Starting to love the dremel :) )

    [​IMG]


    Bending the edges a little more.

    [​IMG]


    Tapped the radguard in it's place, in the case itself i will use kit / black glue to hold it in it's place even better.

    [​IMG]


    Painted it black for the picture.
    In this picture the guard needed a few more taps.

    [​IMG]


    And this is how i want it .... X 3 :)
    Next time further on with how i will fasten the rads/fans.

    Thanks m8!

    Been busy yesterday with the mod-attic again (Wife's ... :p )

    [​IMG]


    Also been thinking all day how to fix the radiators to the case on the inside without being able to see it on the outside.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Going to use Velcro around the radiators and going to support them with a few layers of 5mm thick rubbertape.

    Update.

    First of all the nice package from
    www.highflow.nl
    The footprint on the box did scare the shit out of me but nothing was damaged :)

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]


    Because i replaced the PSU fan, i needed another fan, also one to replace the fan blades

    [​IMG]


    Going for Feser Red, liked the colour more. Also some Red Dye to make it darker.

    [​IMG]


    Some extension cables from Cubitek

    [​IMG]


    And ... a cpu lapping kit ;)

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]


    Thanks for the nice discount Freddy, this wouldn't be possible without you!

    [​IMG]


    Got me some new sawing blades for the 5mm aluminium.

    [​IMG]


    And assembled the fans to the rads.

    [​IMG]


    Finally could use the black M3 allen bolts.

    [​IMG]


    Want to change this somehow

    [​IMG]


    I think i'll use Bitspower mesh there too.

    [​IMG]


    Fast sketch-up for the radiator placement :)

    [​IMG]


    And the case almost completely disassembled.

    [​IMG]


    Hope i'll ever get it working again :p

    [​IMG]


    And taped it with extra smooth tape. (I'll cry if I'll scratch it :p )

    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]


    Still need to think of something for it.

    [​IMG]


    Blood red acrylic it'll be

    [​IMG]


    Even Origen AE works with a black marker when they damage something :)

    [​IMG]


    Back to the fanholes.
    Pre-drilling first.
    Don't mind the drill's brand ;)

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]


    Also taped the jigsaw.

    [​IMG]


    Ready to go.

    [​IMG]


    And the first hole is there.

    [​IMG]


    Two to go.

    [​IMG]


    And the third!

    [​IMG]


    Now finish the nice round edges.
    Wanted to use the dremel, but got myself my file again, needs to be as straight as possible.

    [​IMG]


    More tomorrow!

    *Update*

    Been polishing for 2 hours on the 3 holes to make it as straight as possible with nice round corners.

    [​IMG]


    But finally they fit!

    [​IMG]


    Tape can be removed.

    [​IMG]


    Still need to paint the blank aluminum corners.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]


    Need to be careful with the sawdust, so cleaned it first.

    [​IMG]


    And further on with the plexi front for the Koolance controller.
    Taping it first.

    [​IMG]


    Drawing the round corners.

    [​IMG]


    Started off with the dremel again, but the jigsaw won again :)

    [​IMG]


    And again polishing.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]


    Marking the plexi.

    [​IMG]

    And again polishing it.

    [​IMG]

    More L3p! Yeah!

    You're the one responsible for getting me interested in custom computer cases, so I'm definantly interested in what you do with this case mod. But I'm having issues with your website- when I go to access it my antivirus freaks out with Infected HTML Script warnings; so you might want to look into that.
    I'm subscribed and can't wait to see the updates!
