just an idea Don but maybe get some rubber and make a a square gasket with rounded edges to sandwich the Window so even if things are not perfectly square you can give the illusion of it being so and it should help with rattle and other noises not mention will look better then say a window attached to plain metal

^^ this.

If you get the window looking nice you would have improved the overall look.

Looking great so far. Awaiting next update!

thanks KieX :)

i will get on the window later tonight

today ive been sanding and filling some small holes, where case feets were, and some other small holes, and a rather big one i had to cut some metal for it




filled the usb and fireware + audio since the cables were fucked, so only the powerbutton will work


and there was/is a piece of the alu that is bend, so trying to fix that

If you draw a perfectly squared box just outside the window lines, using the stretches of it that are straight for part of the box lines, you can use a dremel to slowly trim away the curved parts.

Clamp a straight piece of wood to the panel, and run your jigger next to it. Works like a champ. Just measure the offset of the base of the jigsaw to the blade, and clamp your straight edge there. A level works great for a straight edge.

EDIT: Lots of folks, for some reason or another, use Lian Li trays for their aftermarket modding.

thank you for your ideas guys

but here's the thing

on the back of the side panel there is a "frame" for the locking mechanism holes, and i need to keep the window inside that area, so if i start cutting more and fuck that up too, then there isnt really too much room left for me to fix the shit :(

that is the reason for the laser cutting

but first im gonna try and get some of that rubber thing to cover the edge, if it looks good ill let it be as it is for now, and if it looks bad ill get it laser cutted next month:toast:

yep the Lian-Li trays is the ones im looking at, but ffs i have ny country, you cant get parts like that here, thats too special so no shop has those things

do you guys know any EU shops that sells them?

yea all u really need to do is get a rubber gasket thats fits the hole then but the window in measure for the holes etc to anchor it then use another rubber gasket on top then anchor the window down


example... photoshop pic coming soon.....

screw that ill do it in 3d cause im just that bad ass







basically with proper modding and some rubber u create a nice square gasket that goes under the window then use another gasket on top then attach it to the side panel this way it looks neat and clean and the rubber will make a nice seal that dosent amplify sound or rattle

:respect::respect: thank you for that :D

i see what you mean, will see what i can do about that, looks like an excellent idea

nah, i already have a 80gig intel drive, so your (mine) ssd will go somewhere else, or i might trade it for some water cooling parts :pimp:

i got one of these for free



so what im thinking is this:
paint the chrome plate black or red, and then make a acryllic plate to put on top of it , and paint that, to cover all those other holes that i dont need

what do you guys think about that?
