Yes Santa is here "he seross wake up UPDATE",

Came home today and yes the packages ar arived. A lot of bitspower stuf 2 more fans and 3 PA2's.
Because only the order of installation is important it doesnt matter what i do at the moment.
I made a start with the mirror acryl plate. i bought i pre cut "i do the rest myself\ and it is cheaper to buy small pieces".
I measure out the small corners of the case and draw som lines on the acryl. I took the acrylic to the shet for cutting with the dremel.
i dont gave the dremel full power so it cut more instead of melting it. "just a few pieces melted" when the cutting is finished i pull of the melted pieces because the dont hardend out yet and only the melted pieces com of. After this i took a piece of sanding paper 240gr and polish the edges.

When you look at the mirror acrylic plate it looks like aluminium and dont shine at all. But that not quit tru when you pull of the platic film its like a mirror.
"Yes i now "its mirror acrylic ha ha yes and i'm no stupid". I leave the film on for now.

Not finished but it fits. tomorrow i do the rest of the edges.
I looks like an a aluminium plate. Just whait when i pull of the plastic film. "you need sun glasses.




Another shot from a distance "yes i now it still looks like aluminium".






after cutting a slice of with the dremel. Not bad just a little bit sanding and it is ready for mounting.
I use the thin cutting disk the dont melt so mutch like the thick ones.




Had a few clamps on so the acrylic dont fly away during the cutting. "just hand tide its acrylic and can brake".




I got my hands on a free piece of thick acrylic. The used it as a cover for a stair but it has a crack near a mounting hole.
No problem for me i use all the other parts. And after i sanding the edges it shines like a mirror.



crack below "dont look at the mess i need to clean up" just had a tornado over my working bench"



Other piece i need to work on "for the side cover of the pedestel" i want to put leds in it that wy i bought thicker acrylic 8mm".




Pitcture in the wrong order.




Shi... The barhroom heater dont work. I have to go. See you later.

Tath you don't have access to a table saw do you? I cut my acrylic with either my table saw or a jigsaw. But for the table saw you need blades with little/no kerf so it cuts smoothly. I found a couple of reasonably priced blades at a home improvement warehouse that work well. I have a 7.5" blade that only costs about $12 US that works really well.
For a jigsaw you just use fine tooth metal cutting blades, and for straight lines you can just clamp something straight alongside. Either way is much faster than a Dremel. thumb.gif
But if Dremel is what you got , then Dremel is what you use, right?

Glad to see you are making progress. My mirror acrylic not here yet but on the way. Plus I ordered some more sleeving in anticipation of the Z87 UD5H being released. smile.gif

Update 51, "working on the acrylic cover frame".

I had the acrylic purchased "pre cut" a slice bigger than needed. Now i only have to put the measurments on the top and cut it.
I made a drawing in AutoCAD so i can cut it out and have a mal to put underneath the acrylic for adjusting the space on the acrilic plate.




cut out space in the middle. on al sites equal space. Now i can draw the lines on the acrylic.



He Seross "i told you i show my present and you show yours" wel i got a new tool for my dremel.
I thouth this wil do the job for me. "It dont" first i had to find out the right rpm for the cutting.
And because the protection film is a little bit sticky it is hart to get a straith cut.





So its back to the jigsaw. "couth not find the right blades" so i had to try it with the ones i have.




Not bad and not broken "until now".




almost smooth cut.



filing and sanding wil do the rest "Forgot polishing 'bling bling'"



Because the sun is shining i do the filing in the garden.



and more filing.



I want to make an edge like a piramid. and from the inside a few leds.



Tomorrow i wil do more filing. "if i dont brake it first" .

Good morning Seross69,

"way above is a little bit to mutch credit for me" i just noticed that if you dont build things in a particle order you have redo your build avery time and i want to avoid that.
for example:

crystal link between the 2 pump
- measuring the length;
- cut and test it;
- mount right pump;
- put in crystal link tube;
- mount left pump "with mounting the left pump the mounting wil secure the crystal link tube from moving".

It not always work out good. sometimes i get help from mandrix and other people chris when i dont notice.

O yes almost forgot "Happy Birthday!!!" thumb.gifthumb.gif
