Sorry for the slow progress guys. I got distracted with a few small home repairs. Good news is I'm now refocused on the project and plan on steam rolling towards having this project up and running by the weekend (minus the interior painting
). For now, here's what I have done since my last update.Update 8:
Drilled holes for terminal block and will mount it behind the 5.25" bays
Cut out a 120mm hole and mounted my the 120mm radiator... this project will now house 3
Hole cutout for some wires, the sharp edges were ground down first with a dremel then hand filed
Early mock up of what the final cable routes will be like. I plan on laying down a few more cable tie bases for the main ATX power cable and the other cables going up in that direction.
Stick around guys, if all goes according to plan, I'll have a bigger update coming within the next few days.

Sub'd I can't wait to see this completed. I too have a p180, and just ordered one of the XSPC Rasa RS240 kits, so I'm trying to think of ways to set it up. I'm debating between adding another 240 Rad, or a 360. After seeing your mod, and a couple others I'm definately leaning toward a 360. Keep up the great work!

I wanna suggest Fastenal.com for all your bolt needs. Major supply of button head, flat head, shallow head socket cap screws. Im getting all of mine for my current build from them. And CHEAP prices too. No, i dont work for them lol.
Thanks, I ordered a few screws that weren't available from mcmaster-carr. The base shipping price was a little high for what I ordered though...

Nice I got that same case but I mounted a 360 to the top and cut out the top to mount it and put my pump in the bottom hdd tray
Do you have work log or pictures of your case? I'm interested in seeing it.

Where did you find those radgrillz in black? All I'm finding is stainless steel. I think those are sharp, I was just going to go the DIY route with some black acrylic, but those look nice.
 another question, this may sound silly, but where are your HD's going to go?
I answered your questions in a PM but if anyone else is curious, acryan.com used to be a site for computer mods. But since a year or two ago, the site is now focused on selling a media player device... I don't know if there was an owner change, but I can assume that all of the prior A.C. Ryan modding gear has been discontinued.
As for the question about my hard drives, I'm using a Scythe Bay Rafter Combo
. It houses my regular hard drive along with my 2 SSDs all within one 5.25" bay.Edited by skkhai - 7/20/11 at 9:20am
