Good idea, wonder if I can convince my CTO to do the same for me. Wonder what new PC parts I could claim as training on a new platform biggrin.gif

I work in a hospital and others are getting ipads/iphones for "work/education" so I asked if I could get the CPU/Motherboard for my computer at home that I use for work. But I only get like 1600 stipend over two years and I actually do have expensive tests and books to buy. But I'll put in the money I saved w/ the CPU/mobo for the liquid cooling system and GPU wink.gif

I got the grills and filters this morning and have been eyeballing placement when I noticed that the dual 120 grill can fit rather nicely in front of the computer. I never did like that area of the computer (HAF X looks cleaner there). Wish the paint wasn't so glossy, though. Oh, and I'm just hanging the filters behind a leaning grill right now so that's why they don't line up very well. It's just for a general idea.

People who can't afford or see no point in buying flashy new video cameras with built-in HDD's or the ability to record straight to DVD (that one puzzles me, I see no reasoning for it, practically yes... logical not so much). It's still one of the most used connections for video cameras even though it has been superseded by USB2.0 and 3.0 however I don't know of any video/audio/media devices with USB3.0 functionality yet, I could be wrong however.

So I am putting the front together now and this is it loosely screwed in w/ the screws that came w/ the grill:
640

I decided to put the speaker-like filters backwards for a 3d effect so the flames would create shadows (not sen well here) and it makes for a nice backdrop:

700



You would think that a 20 dollar grill would come w/ matching screws. Sheesh. So I ordered black ones that would match. But I figured that since I can choose any I want, why not go with something cooler, so I went with some BOLTS like these:
300

I hope I chose the right sizes (m4 10mm, 6-32 35mm). I also went with nylon b/c it seemed like it would do the job and I couldn't find black bolts like that made of steel. Better be OK b/c I could only get 100 piece boxes of these things and it's parts like these that are making me second guess this project from a financial perspective. winksmiley02.gif

But here's the first problem of my build. Im not sure if you can see from the above picture but the grill sticks out:

700

So I tried to make the sides stick out more by placing folded index cards under the side grill pieces of the front of the case:

700

But unfortunately, it doesn't do too much at all. However, there is a tiny bit of space b/w the layers (case, fan, filter, grill) and if I press with my hand, I can get it down almost flush w/ the stock case sides that border the grill. The screws w/ the case are only short m4s to hold the grill to the fans by the inner screws, only the outside screws of the grill are 30+mm in length. So at this point, if the new bolts I get that are 35mm each (x100) don't hold the grills closer to the case, I think I'm going to dremel out the front of the case and somehow place something that the fans and grill can be bolted to. Does that make any sense? I'm terrible at describing this stuff! rolleyes.gif
