I've taken out the drive bays while I work on finishing them off.

Here I have been drilling the mounting holes for the new facia.

The rear template is finished, hopefully I will get a chance to cut the pieces in aluminium soon.

Thanks for the support. This project is proving to be fun and constantly evolving, shame it's moving so slowly due to numerous factors; not least the wife! tongue.gif

Today has been quite productive, which is nice. biggrin.gif

The templates for the resevoir mounts and rear panel are done. Fingers crossed I can chop the real bits soon.


I have also finished the bottom of the case...

The 360 radiator mounts needed to be raised a bit from the case floor so I used a piece of 12mm mdf and finished it with a aluminium plate on top.

The mdf piece was also used to locate captive nuts for mounting the case feet and the 360 rad brackets.




The rad brackets are from pulse modding but I have cut them down to just the lower mounting holes.



I'm pleased with today's work, it feels like I've made some real progress for once.

I have the aluminium sheet here to mark up with the templates later and then I need to decide how I'm going to finish off the drive bay section.

All good! thumb.gif

Dual Alphacool 360mm UT60 radiators with push, push/pull and pull fans. Part of the graphics card loop.

Time to fine tune the mount for this wee block of copper.



That's sorted then, next it's mark up some ali with the templates.

That's the fresh ali plate all marked up then.


Do you think the wife would think be upset if I spent Mother's Day cutting ali instead of pampering her? tongue.gif
