Corsair 650D Case Mod Log "Powder Coated"

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
What's up guys so last week i "finished" my rig or so i thought i did but i every time i looked at i was never 100% satisfied. So for this weekend i tore the whole thing down to bare bones and started from 0. This time i will do a few mods in order to fit the parts properly instead of just velcro'ing (sp?) my way out,

I went out to home depot and got me of of theses along with some tips

First thing is cut out the round mesh in the front as it blocks some air.

First go around

after couple more times

next step is to get rid of one of the bays as it is blocking the rad. I decided to cut the side as well. The less the better imo.

This does not look straight in the pic but it actually is as the scrapes make it all look uneven. The only thing that is not 100% perfect as of not is the corner but i will tinker with it some more tomorrow.

After this i drilled some holes for the rad and this is where i am right now.

Next up is finish up the corners and take the thing to get powder coated on Monday. The color scheme i am going for is Orange/Black. All metal in orange and the plastics in black. I was also tinkering with the idea of orange outside and black inside. Maybe a suggestion?

Here is my professional schematic on how the tubing and such are going to be routed. Also i would love some suggestions on this as well. Note that the res is the danger den one so it will be mounted to the fans. ie res.fans.rad.

Any input/suggestions appreciated!

you might want to look at the rpm of the front fan, my case fan i got for my coolermaster is quiet enought just doesnt push enough air, I can conroll it with my motherboard so i went looking around for a 200mm fan that moves a bit more air. Not sure what comes with the case... oh and btw if you are like me .. it will never be officially done. :> Good luck!

in front i will be using 2x120 delta fans. I also have a fan controller that has 30w per channel so i think i should be good there.

Good day all! Dropped of the case at Powder Coat shop today and the guy said it will be done thursday or friday at the latest. I decided to go with Orange all around as there is a lot of other parts that are going to be in black and i think everything with white lighting is going to stand out nicely. Keep an eye out for an update on thursday as my parts should be here as well on that day thumb.gif

What's up guys! As projected a few great things happened today. 1 out of 3 orders came in and you guessed it i picked up the case from the powder coat shop! What i'm still waiting on. 3 Scythe Ultra Kaze fans from newegg and a full mod kit for the mcp655 from FrozenCpu all should be here by Saturday. Which means for now i can brainstorm
