People can have glossy finishes?



Looking back through this thread, you modded the front of your case. What was your tool of choice for that? Those nice rounded edges would be difficult do with with a Dremel cut off wheel (at least for me they would lol). I normally hate to copy someone elses mods, but that just looks so freaking sweet I may be forced to lol.

I'm thinking maybe use a drill for the rounded edges and a dremel for the straight bits. Yea or nay?

Really nothing to see right now, the case is partially torn down and nothing is mounted yet.

is it alright for this set up?

res- pump- gpu- 360 rad- CPU - res- and so on

or is this better : res- pump- gpu - CPU - 360 rad - res....
post #4956 of 13812
either sounds fine to me. Im sure my CPU temps would be lower If I wasnt going:
res > pump > 240 rad > GPU2 > GPU1 > CPU > 360 rad > res

My GPUs idle at like 30 lol. Im sure if I went to the GPUs and then the 360 (may try that when I have to drain the system) Id get better temps. Id then go from the cpu to the res directly.

and talk about ambients lol - I opened my bedroom windows and im now idling at 26 degrees haha i love it

My 670 idles at 25C and my 3570k idles around 28-30C. GPU doesn't go over 35C in BF3. That is amazing.

Be sure to use the best quality blades you can, new and sharp, and minimum 18 to maximum 24 teeth per inch for most plastics. That soft thermoplastic should cut a little cleaner with an 18 than a 24, which will likely create too much frictional heating.
Some good quality hand files should help with getting the straight cuts smoothed out nicely. Unless you have plenty of relevant experience, stay away from power tools for finishing work on soft plastic, except maybe the dremel to drum sand the corners.
I think that's become a pretty popular mod and has a few variations. Some with a single opening, some divided.
I did mine with the little divider close to the top mostly because the mesh I had to put in there, was in 2 pieces and joins behind the divider. I had some lattitude in where to put the divider, but that location seemed about the height of a drive bay, and it clicked in my eyes.

I thought that mesh was stock! I guess the white cases still have black mesh then. But jig saw, check. I don't know why I always neglect that tool but it seems I love to reach for the Dremel first. I guess I feel like I have more control with it, but to cut plastic it smells awful and takes a long time and I invariably end up feeling the need to wear a half face respirator to keep the crap out of my lungs. The jig saw is much more elegant and less prone to error on top of that.

I had also considered just drilling a bunch of small holes in some sort of interesting pattern too, that would be super easy. Not sure yet. I need to see it in person to know exactly what I want to do with it. I'm also planning on giving the plastic parts a spray with red paint, and with the glossy nature of the case I picked, it might make it difficult to get paint into all the holes without spending an eternity spraying and re spraying to avoid overspray. A single big hole would of course negate that problem.

Does this grille mod help significantly with airflow? I think that would help me make the decision much more easily. No tiny holes then, I'd go for something as large as possible.






Also, does anyone know of a way to order extra parts for this NZXT case? I'd also love to get my hands on another one of those stealth CD rom covers in glossy black if NZXT sells them seperately for a reasonable price. I've looked and can't seem to find them though frown.gif

And looking at more pics, I've got a few more questions.

- For non right angle SATA cables, how good is the clearance with 3.5 HDD's? Is there a little room to spare? I hope so, my SAS to SATA cables are going to need it.
- Does this thing have a reset button?
