I thought of fan grills as soon as I saw them. I tried to do something similar with my custom case window. It is harder than it looks. One side does not have enough airflow and the other side is too week to hold together. Think about cutting out all the white: What do the black swishes and curls hold on to?

But as stickers. Great! I would love some. My theme is dragon and Phoenix though. Who did the drawings? I would commission a similar work in CNC vector format if that is possible.

Ok...couldn't wait...biggrin.gif got a few packages in the mail today, so here goes! Forgive the flash photography...only had the overhead lights, so made do...rolleyes.gif

Some lighting, switches, and a remote PSU start...

IMG_3920.jpg

These SATA cables are amazing! They connectors come off so the cable can literally be cut to a perfect length! Not to mention the fact that they are tiny and uber easy to sleeve!

IMG_3923.jpg

Speaking of sleeving...my PSU tester grew legs and walked off, so I needed a new one to test the sleeved cables!

IMG_3926.jpg

This little gem is a USB 3.0 extension cable...perfect for hiding that huge double cable that is stock!

IMG_3937.jpg

Decided to change the pump top and res...not sure if I am going to use the PSU extension bracket or not...

IMG_3918.jpg

Res, pump, and top assembled...lots of shiny chrome!

IMG_3928.jpg

IMG_3934.jpg

Tomorrow, I'll show off what I have done with the side panels, the front panel, and the drive bay...(let's just say that there has been a little re-engineering going on...

As always, questions and comments (good or constructive) are always welcome! thumb.gif

Okay guys...here is an update on the front panel. It's not finished, but I wanted to get an update on here, so here goes...

If you remember, this is what the front panel looked like last...

IMG_3940.jpg

The problem is, I wasn't happy with the way the bracket for the 5.25" bay turned out. It was just too bulky. Here is what it looked like (Not completed in these photos, but you get the idea...)

IMG_3943.jpg

IMG_3944.jpg

What I wanted to do is use these Case Labs brackets instead...They are made out of aluminum and are very rigid...Perfect for an Aquaero!

IMG_3946.jpg

This is the basic area that will get cut out of the front panel. This will allow me to use the drive brackets and place my rad/fan anywhere I want to on the front panel.

copy.jpg

First up is to create a template. I like to use file folders because I have a ton of them, plus they are easy to cut up but are thick enough to create a decent template.

IMG_3950.jpg

Template

IMG_3951.jpg

Ready to transfer to steel stock

IMG_3953.jpg

Ready for cutting...

IMG_3957.jpg

Rough cuts completed...

IMG_3961.jpg

Test fitting...

IMG_3963.jpg

Drive bay...

IMG_3964.jpg

Rough fit completed...

IMG_3965.jpg

View inside...

IMG_3966.jpg

Next steps are to make the cuts to the front panel, fan hole cut, file all the cuts down smooth, primer / paint the new piece, drill holes for rivets...

The windows have been put on hold...found nasty scratches in both windows, so have to order new material Monday morning along with some Delrin for a couple other parts for Yin. Anyways...I'll have another update tomorrow with the final front panel piece completed.
