That's the nice thing about missing deadlines (at least some of the time): Once you're
past it, the pressure's off and you can go about things much more relaxed. Of course,
it depends on the ramifications of a missed deadline, sometimes they may be much more
stressful (and/or damaging) than the stress from trying to keep the deadline.

Anyway, looking forward to the rest of this. smile.gif

Here is the case that Fractal has sent me (a fractal define mini http://www.fractal-design.com/home/product/cases/define-series/define-mini) for a future mod and review. Corsair was kind enough to send me this Ram for the Xylo Mod (its just in the system temporarily) NZXT sent the Sentry Fan Controller that looks perfectly at home in this case. I can honestly say that it is one of the nicest blank canvases for a mod in its size I have has the pleasure of working in. Its simple feature rich and was just plain easy to set up in a short amount of time for PDX Lan.

So I was still able to take a great case and computer.

Yup, totally agree on that one. My R4 was such an awesome case to work with,
I really loved taking it to pieces and modding it. smile.gif

Also: Nice build! thumb.gif

Yup, my intern J did a great job - I told him what I wanted and he made it happen while I was still trying to get the Aspros Done.

Step 5: Test fitting Panels and Dremeling

So I was not able to meet the date I set due to the plastic seller sending me the sheets super late. So now I have a little more time to finish it. However a ton of it is done, and I need to focus on sleeving jobs for this week.

But here is where we are.


Here is the small parts I need to dremel offa the drive cage.


And here you can see why I need to remove them!


Here is my Slot Loading OD, it needs some painting.


Here is the one place I need to dremel on the MB Tray


And here is where I need to dremel it.


Here are the slots that need painting. The gloss ones are going to be redone with a Matte Finish.


Slot Loading OD has been painting and needs a sticker on the top.


Here is some test fitting of the panels and a good idea where I am headed with this.


Testing fitting the 200mm rad and fans.


And a better pic with Drive bay cover.


New front panel turned out great, the letters Aspros will be light up. Behind it will be the white fan blades.


Test fitting of the hard drive.


Here is the 2 peice back panel I will be putting on the mod to clean the back.


And here it is with the HD included.

I still have allot of straightening up to do and planning out the hardline tubing for the watercooling, but we are extremely close to being finished.

Thanks for following! I will have more work up here soon.

I'm starting a build on my 600t next week! I love what you are doing so far Lutro0. I can't wait to see what you have planned for the loop.
