smee, if you dont mind me asking, what are the dimensions of the radgrillz 120 grill that you used on the front of the case?


Obviously it fits a 120x120 fan. But how big is the actual grill? I cant find specifications on it. I'd appreciate it!

Thanks guys!!

@Batmang, dimensions are 6" x 5 9/16".
Got the grillz from here FrozenCPU. :D

Quick Update...
1-9-09


Arite guys, so I guess what happened was the case i wanted was not in stock at the place I ordered it, and they had refunded me in Paypal... and I wasn't aware of that until a few days ago...
I tried another place, but the same problem... out of stock and cannot be ordered... : /

I've looked around, and I just can't seem to find any other places with the case in stock. So it looks like that I MAY just have to find a different case to get two of...
However, the case's need to be cheap, looking at like $40 each...
But yea, we'll see...

Also got a couple other things for ya'll to see... but that'll have to wait. ;)

This is awesome. Great choice with Lian Li! Think you'll give us an idea of how silent this is when you're done?

props to you for some very nice work!
have you got any fan comparisons (either online or your experience) comparing these TT fans to any others, like Scythe S-Flex or anything?

Subscribed! Awesome job so far! I would say Rosewill cases are the cheapest and easiest to mod if you're still looking for a case?

hey smee how's it going?
what are the spacings on the radiator - are they the same as most other rads?
S-Flex are now so expensive I'm considering doing this with those silent wheels..as they're half the price..
how quiet are they actually too? (12/7v?)

thanks man, I'd hunt you down personally but I can't getcha through PM..

Update!
1-29-09


It's been busy lately, but we've made a bit of progress.... got a package the other day. :D


The ONLY difference between this case and the case I already have is that the front plastic part is different... we can deal with this methinks. :)




Gutted down a bit, without the side panels and front.


Another angle...


Sat the cases together just to check it out....


I'm liking this... hehehe...


I've decided to ditch that Mest idea to cover the original PSU hole, will be doing something else instead....


Got another 120.3 rad grill, going to cut the top of the second case like you see i have done on the left case.


Hehe.....


So how to make these two case fronts work together.... that is the question.... :hmm:

More updates soon!

Ok guys, so a little "update" for ya'll. :D

I've been working for the past month and a half or so on a little side project, to support "The blank.box"...
Check it out:
http://theblankbox.net/

It's just another place to log my progress, thought it'd be nice.
It's been a real fun time (ahaha.... i hate working with domains... xD) getting this website up and running, I made it from scratch. :)

But there ya have it, a little surprise. Be sure to add it in your bookmarks. ;) :D

Feedback on the site is greatly appreciated!
I've tested it with FF and Safari, both seem to work fine, if ya'll can let me know of any other browsers that work/don't work, any glitch's, that'd be great! :)

Thanks guys!!

Ok another update!!!
2-4-09


Got to work monday night!!
Pics explain them selves basically, but I just took out a ton of rivets to take out the pieces of the case I will not be using, then cut the top of the second case for the radiator.


The case's ready to be de-riveted.


First case done.


Second case done.


Now for the top of the new case.


Cut out.


Methinks I done good! :D


Weapon of choice.
Also, see the dremel discs, I used the one on the Right for the ENTIRE cut, the one on the left is just showing the original size of the disc that I used.
These disc's are AMAZING!! I was cutting through steel.... took about 20 minutes..... the discs are a tad more expensive than regular disc's, but I HIGHLY recommend them. :up:


Holes drilled.


Can't forget my handy assistant! My little bro, Preston. :)


Alright! So the tops are done!


My mess, along with the ghetto table!


Just laid the grills on top to see how they look, I like em! Will do test fit with radiators in next update.


Time to head back inside...


Time for a nice root beer float. ;)
(btw, thats not photoshopped, safeway sells "Parker's Root Beer"!! It's great!! :D)

Till next time,
~Parker
