I did mine free-hand too :D

 

I've since bought the Workstation and Plunge Router attachments for my Dremel along with a Trio & Moto-Saw LOLLL

Well, after hearing a strange rattling sound in my case, found out one of my Corsair fans had went out. They're only about 14 months old, purchased in December 2012, so was surprised that it had already went out. They were the SP120 High Performance ones so it looks like I'll be looking into getting it replaced under warranty since they have a 2 year. Anyone ever had to send one of their fans back before?

Very nice there sir. The dremel set up is a great idea for long straight cuts.... I would have never thought to do that, but now I am going to use the heck outta that idea. Awesome. Like the sleeving that you did also. Real nice. Do you have a build log for your XB?

I don't have a build log on this site. I should probably start one.

You are right. it does have flat edges:

It looks like you are using normal cutting wheel and not diamond? they ware down SO fast that I cant see how this would work efficiently..
Wouldnt the dremel have to be lowered all the time to bite into the metal? or is the panel lifted up into the cutting wheel?
But yea, the results speak for itself! looks awesome! straightest cuts I ever seen by a dremel smile.gif
I did mine free hand.. with a file and the U channel, you will get lines just as straight.

Your right this is just a reinforced wheel. Cutting like this does not bind the disk up like doing it freehand so I went through about 2 disks on both the top and side window. The dremel does not move and the metal just lifts up into the cutting wheel.

nice looking PC, I have twin 660's as well and I like them a lot. Check out the 660 non ti owners club and unlock your cards. It makes a big difference in over clocking.

TY Sir, I love them and appreciate the info (+Repped) I had been looking into unlocking them and updating the bios to fix the 80% fan max. Not that it needs more on stock clock, but I hate being blocked by stuff. Altho, I can't imagine the sound at 100% fan speed, at 75% it sounds like the whole PC is about to take off. thumb.gif

I see..
I went through 10~ wheels on a single side panel (I dont recall the exact number).. yours must be some better quality or something smile.gif
In that case, your setup is a good idea! thumb.gif and also something we (or atleast, I) havent seen before.

You probably used the same discs I did. Dark red in color, like a sanding stone. They are quite inferior to the reinforced disks (I used about 7 or 8 on each of my side panels where as I only used 2 reinforced ones for the top)

^This^
Yea, I did indeed smile.gif
As mentioned in my build log, I switched to "diamond" cutting wheel and did the other side panel and top panel with only that one disk..
it was cutting a bit slower, but I didnt have to change wheels all the time.

The red circle in the top "plastic cup with weak wheels" is what I started with, than went for the lower red circles "diamond wheels"
Im guessing what @onesojourner used was the bigger grinding disks you see above the "diamond disks" ? or maybe something in between that I dont have.


The result thumb.gif
