So youve got the thumbscrew and cut slots for the two other connections? Seems simple enough. I definitely want to do that.

Ill end up doing something similar with the front, although I doubt Ill be playing with water anytime soon.


How are you planning on hiding cables in this thing? I guess i thought that there was more space behind the motherboard tray. Might have to see how much i can hide between the mobo and the tray.

Yeah i drilled 3 holes, two on the 5.25 bays as is in original spot and one on the floor, also you gonna then need some sata cables ( and power) with angled connection smile.gif
Hiding cables is kinda hard to do on this, there are some space between tray and side panel but not so much, also a psu cover gonna help with some hiding in this case ( i have it made i need only to get a matching colour paint).

Yewah thoose are for some airflow and also for the looks, had a chance to play today with laser cutter and i failed ( actually everything went good and really good with this front) with measurements, did instead of 150mm width 180mm and i think that im not gonna get this kinda matte/clear acrylic. Also i saw this when i came back from work and tried to put it in place. what a failure day

Hey, I have the 1000 also:) it's a pretty sweet case:) very subtle:) was just wondering... are there any windowed panels or universal panels that fit this case? I'm wanting a windowed panel but my DIY skills a very limited, also interested in spraying the front mesh green, I'm going for a green/black look:), any tips on spraying the mesh?? am i able to just spray straight onto the mesh or is there some preparation to be had?.
let me know guys:).
