Lol, nah I've actually been thinking of different ways to do it for a while. I'm pretty positive about making a mobo tray out of acrylic. I just gotta figure out the mounting and a cpl of other details. I really want it to still be removable.
The mobo tray only sits like 8mm above the 5.25 cages, so if i used thick acrylic, it should be possible to make it stable. Maybe some aluminum angle under the pci slots could keep it a removeable tray. Still thinking about it thinking.gif

not sure if you've seen it already but this build log has some really good stuff to do with acrylic mobo tray like how he taps the holes for the standoffs ect. he also does some neat stuff with bending a sheet of acrylic too using a heat gun and/or blow torch.

Some photos from my latest log Build Day 2: Cable Routing, Water Cooling & Forgetting Basics wherein I prove its been +10 years since I built a computer last and I get crockblocked by my own stupidity.

Also, I rewire the case's insides half a dozen times before I am finally happy with my results.


The fit with my H80i is incredibly tight. If the radiator was any longer the pull fans would be blocked by the GFX card. Part of this is because the H80i's rad is 38mm deep

A question raised during my build that I thought I would submit to the thread:
If my radiator was 30mm wide would a 280mm radiator like the Nepton 280L fit along with a 285mm graphics card and 25mm set of internal pull fans?

Shouldn't be too hard..just use the aluminum angle like you said and rivet it to the sides..if you make the tray out of 1/4" acrylic it will be plenty rigid enough asong as you make a cutout where the CPU is to prevent it from getting too hot...I have a 1/4" mobo tray in my scratch build and it works great

If it is a 30mm rad it should, mine did with a pair of 7970s.

You can barely see the fan shroud under that wild led strip..

I'll get things tidy once I figure out my sata issue..

I want to use a HAF 915 as an external WC box, can i fit 2 360mm 30mm thick rads each side and still have room for a bay reservoir? Can someone measure space between case side and the start of the 5.25 drive cage please?
post #6887 of 10525
Hey all, I'll be joining the HAF XB Club smile.gif

Here a few snaps og the rig, nothing custom yet, but everything combined and working.

I've stuffed the folloing into it, with abit of help smile.gif Since i was pressed for time.

Asus Maximus VI Extreme c2
Asus GTX 780 TI OC2
Intel 4770K (Unlocked multiplier)
Corsair H90 (Replaced case stock fan 120 mm with h90 140mm as intake fan rather than exaust..
Kingstom Beast 32gb
Samsung Solidsate 512mb
CoolerMaster Silent Pro Hybrid 1050w
Soundblaster ZxR
Fans: turbine 1800 RPM intake and Exaut in the top
2x80 mm Exaust bottom
200mm Intake top - May change this to window panel as fun.






post #6888 of 10525
Oh on a note to the setup I'm seriously considering flipping the front fans as exausts and only keeping 200mm as intake in the top, any thoughts on that people ?

It doesn't work as well as you think. I had that going for a while in my case (minus the 200mm) when I had first installed my water cooling setup but I just ended up getting more dust inside of the case in all sorts of nooks and crannies than I did with it as intake. Also the 200mm doesn't push as much air as you think it does. Several people have tested it on here and shown that it doesn't improve temps much versus the mesh without the fan and with the windowed panel. The HAF cases are meant for a front to back airflow, as that's what they're designed to do. You want your case to have a positive pressure (air moving out of the case) rather than negative (air moving in the case) as negative pressure without filters can lead to dust buildup.

Either way will work fine.

Nice build btw. A couple of thoughts. Grab a second fan for the H90 to enable push -pull. You will get a few degrees improvement in temps. Your IDE wire to the motherboard looks like it is inverted as you should see a flashing red HDD indicator right beside the power switch.
