I would just cuz .. .
another awesome build incoming, subscribed
Thanks guys !
Nah wanted to keep them for when it's finished
Finally bought my first dremel
(Bargain sale somewhere)
And for all the small future damage i will create with it on different cases
Drool, I can't believe you didn't have a dremel!?
Well D3sk was 3mm thick aluminium, so i preferred the jigsaw, grinder and drill
Fair enough but every MAN should own one.
th1s i5 pr3tty k3wl L3p, I ju5t w15h y00d l34rn h0w t0 sp3ll.
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.
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)
piece of 6mm thick garbage measured out.
Still no idea how or what, but i've got to do it with these tools.
Forget about a dremel in 6mm alu so lets prepare for the jigsaw.
Only had a bad quality metalsaw, the woodsaw worked better :/
After sawing, the dremel works out fine.
Grinding the edges from the Bitspower radguard. (Starting to love the dremel )
Bending the edges a little more.
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.
Painted it black for the picture.
In this picture the guard needed a few more taps.
And this is how i want it .... X 3
Next time further on with how i will fasten the rads/fans.
Looking good, can't wait to see more.
Been busy yesterday with the mod-attic again (Wife's ... )
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.
Going to use Velcro around the radiators and going to support them with a few layers of 5mm thick rubbertape.
Looking good l3p
First of all the nice package from
The footprint on the box did scare the shit out of me but nothing was damaged
Because i replaced the PSU fan, i needed another fan, also one to replace the fan blades
Going for Feser Red, liked the colour more. Also some Red Dye to make it darker.
Some extension cables from Cubitek
And ... a cpu lapping kit
Thanks for the nice discount Freddy, this wouldn't be possible without you!
Got me some new sawing blades for the 5mm aluminium.
And assembled the fans to the rads.
Finally could use the black M3 allen bolts.
Want to change this somehow
I think i'll use Bitspower mesh there too.
Fast sketch-up for the radiator placement
And the case almost completely disassembled.
Hope i'll ever get it working again
And taped it with extra smooth tape. (I'll cry if I'll scratch it )
Still need to think of something for it.
Blood red acrylic it'll be
Even Origen AE works with a black marker when they damage something
Back to the fanholes.
Don't mind the drill's brand
Also taped the jigsaw.
Ready to go.
And the first hole is there.
Two to go.
And the third!
Now finish the nice round edges.
Wanted to use the dremel, but got myself my file again, needs to be as straight as possible.
Wewt finally another update! Can't wait to see what you do next!
Been polishing for 2 hours on the 3 holes to make it as straight as possible with nice round corners.
But finally they fit!
Tape can be removed.
Still need to paint the blank aluminum corners.
Need to be careful with the sawdust, so cleaned it first.
And further on with the plexi front for the Koolance controller.
Taping it first.
Drawing the round corners.
Started off with the dremel again, but the jigsaw won again
And again polishing.
Marking the plexi.
And again polishing it.
And it fits.
Next job like this im going to look for a lasercutting company near me
Further on tomorrow!
Everytime i see that picture i have to laugh
Man u should start your own laser cutting and modding company...!
I'll surely send my HAF X in your hands...
Project looking amazing and attention to detail is insane.
Keep it comin....
If i'll win the lottery i will buy me a laser cutter and start a mod company
We should start a L3p donation paypal, I'd donate $5 just so I could see one every month.
Your welcome . . . . now get back to work j/k
Ok.... I'll make it a Non-Profit mod company when i win the lottery
yep yep yep, sorry Sir
lol srsly i just saw how expensive that case was, i was like
but well u know what u r doing l3p i saw that with ur other case mod it turned out awesome with great style ^^
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!
I hope i know what i'm doing
Thanks m8 !
Lol thats quite an honour, thanks
Hmm well there's nothing wrong with it, i assume you're using avast ?
