[Official] Corsair Vengeance C70 Gaming Case Owner Club - Page 87

post #861 of 8002
Personally I would drill it and screw it rather than irreversibly modify the case like that. Would look a lot neater too.

Ok, so I just looked at some possible ways to cut acrylic and it looks like I can use my dremel. Should I? It seems the Dremel 561 bit will work but I'm not sure. Will it destroy my acrylic or no?

If I used the normal fiberglass reinforced cutting wheels, how should I go about the project? I heard it might melt the acrylic!

Never tried it but I'd be more inclined to use an open ended hacksaw with a high TPI blade, but again that's a personal preference and it depends on how comfortable you are with hand tools. At least by hand any screw-ups happen far more slowly than with a power tool so you can usually correct yourself before it goes horribly wrong

Please take your time when cutting, if the blade or bit get too hot it will melt the piece. Stop and let it cool or have warm water ready to dip it in to keep it cool.

Also, should I use Acrylic or Plexiglass? Most people say Acrylic because it has better clarity and I'm almost inclined to agree. I'm not sure though if it's too weak. Also, this is basically my first window mod other than my 600T window mod, but I didn't do too much of the work on that. I had my dad do most of it for me but now I want to try for myself!

I have done 2 window mods, my last PC with Acrylic and this C70 with Plexiglass. Plexiglass seems to be softer, it will not crack as easy when drilling, - I had no issues this time and I did with the Acrylic - it will machine nicely but melt faster and it scratch's alot easier. I would use the Acrylic if I were you just go very slow and not too mich pressure when drilling.

Ok, thanks guys. tongue.gif I'll see if they have the 561 drill bit, but if they don't, I'll just take extra care with the cutting wheel! Also, Devildog83, what do you call that job where they do that "Corsair Vengeance" thing on your case? I want to search up where I can get one near my area. I was planning on putting my name on it. smile.gif 'Swag'

It's called "Etching" the window... some businesses can get this done for you. Kirk Carpenter over at:

http://www.lazerwerx.com/

made my Scout solid window:



The flash on my camera makes it look pure white, but normally it looks more translucent - like it was carved out of the plastic (which, of course, it was!).

Remember, any artwork or lettering is going to be done on the inside - so make sure whoever is going to do it for you gets the image flipped the right way so that from the outside it looks right, and not reversed.
