I didnt realy plan on adding a clear coat since it is pretty high gloss as it sits, but the more I think about it the more I'm starting to consider it.

What kind of fans are you sticking in there? What about the window(s)?

lol, as for the fan setup, i had to tweak it again a bit. I'm using a 120 for the rear exauhst and two 80mm for the intake. One 80mm in the front and one on the side where the small hole is, unless you guys can suggest anything a little better.

Just have negative pressure and you should be good. I like the small window idea instead of a fan there.

yeah, i didnt realy want to block that round window, i like the idea of it being there. In that case, I'll just mount the other 80mm next to the other one up front.

Well, I made a little bit of progress today, but not realy anything to speak of. I'm at a bit of a standstill until my hardware comes in. At any rate though, all the paint is completely dried and I started to fit some things together. So lets just get into it shall we.

Here's the chasis. Once more, i think it came out pretty good.


I mounted the 120mm on the back of the case. It looks a few shades lighter here, but it's actually pretty black.


I also went ahead and drilled out some places to mount the two 80mm I'll be using. The are at the bottom front of the case.


Here, you can see some of the switches being mouned back into place. I was going to paint them but decided not to since they go unseen anyway.


Front panel. Painted the buttons a nice blue for contrast.


here is the panel with the door open. Once again, I painted the small blanks blue for contrast. The top bay will house my usb and card reading cluster, separated by the first blank, and the bottom bay will be for the DVD drive. I wont be using a floppy so the two bottom plates will stay.


At 6:00pm the UPS guy came and dropped off one of my items. He usualy comes by 4:00, what a slacker. lol


Yep, this is the lighting that will be going inside. Of course blue to match the other stuff.


Thats it for today. I'm realy looking forward to tomorrow. Everything else should be delivered then. Then we can realy get things moving and concentrate on putting the hardware in and getting this thing running. Before that though, I still have to put in the plexi. Sounds like a job for the morning.
