new front panel (antec 900)

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 


Overall, I'm pretty happy with it. It actually took me three tries to bend the second side so it would fit within the bezel - even after attempting to compensate for the bend radius, the final measurement was 6mm off my first one. On the plus side, the extra couple mm helps hide the areas where my masking tape took some of the paint off. It's actually tight enough that there isn't any glue, screws, or tape holding it in.

Now, some of you may be asking why I don't have space for an optical drive. Easy answer is that if I had an optical drive, I wouldn't have space for a triple rad.

Nice work looks great subbed so I can see these better pics don't forget to add more. Would like to see what it looks like close up and on the backside how you attached it I mean.

I'm trying to borrow a camera from anyone who is willing. I'd have a better camera if I didn't spend all my money on computer parts.

Seems like no one wants to lend me a camera, and my brother's is still being "borrowed" by someone... but better quality cell pics should keep some of you satisfied for now.



Pics from the inside of the side and at the top. Absolutely no screws/tape/glue required. It's all attached by friction. At this point, I figure some of you may wish to ask how sturdy or how strong is it considering that it technically isn't attached to anything.
