Friend works with this kind of material so he can get me some of that for free. I suppose you could use simple aluminum plate instead, it's easy to work with.

From local hardware store. It's very cheap, less than 2 euros for a hole set of different diameters

Now I'm waiting Monday for Corsair SP120 fans to come so i can continue with my plans and work. There will be some changes (cuts) on front and top bezel.

subbed smile.gif

btw, what size of "cup" did you used to cut down the fan holes? i was told that for 120mm fans you need 114mm "cup". and where the hell did you found this tool for 2 pounds??? eek.gif
another question - from where did you got this fan hole template?

i just want to cut a place for a fan i one of my cases and your cut looks perfect smile.gif

Thanks for subb. wink.gif

You were told right, you should use 114mm cup for 120mm fans. I have 112mm cup, but what the hell, no one will notice those 2mm difference biggrin.gif. BTW i bought it from local hardware store. And yes, it costs much less than i would expect it to be.

Click for template thumb.gif


Let us start with another update smile.gif

Time has come to do something with this top mesh/cover. Job is not done yet cos i'm waiting for those Corsair SP120 fans to come so I can make some more modding with this mesh. Honestly, i'm not 100% sure how i'm gonna perform what i have in mind for those fans. But, as soon as they come i'll let you know everything there is to know. So, stay tuned thumb.gif

This is what i have done so far...
Mesh/cover i'm talkin' about



...taken apart.


Way too much plastic, so something should have been done about it...


...and this is what i came up with...


... much better.


Time for some painting


Assembled back together





Now few pics with case






As we are finished with that part of job (for now) let us jump to a front mask of the case. 5.25 bay covers are completely removed and replaced with piece of plexiglass on which has been etched the inscription and the Corsair logo. Later, i'm gonna add couple of white leds behind the inscription and that's it.

First, front mask as it used to be


Replacement for 5.25 covers made of black plexiglass. Sorry for reflections tongue.gif



This is how it looks all together






That would be all for tonight folks, see ya in a in few days cheers.gif

Me again biggrin.gif
I made a few changes on the mesh and plastic i worked on yesterday so let me share that with you. Don't know how you will react to these changes, but for me this looks much more interesting now.
Small Corsair badge on front mesh has been removed, it was kind of a surplus. Having two corsair logos on the front was a little stupid in the first place. Also, i made some more changes with top mesh.

Few pics so you can see what i'm talkin about

Ready for some painting, again biggrin.gif




and this what we've got...




This plastic painted white looked kind of not so great beneath that mesh.
As AC-DC would said - Back in black


Mesh and plastic together




For the end couple of pics how it looks on the case






So, what do you think about all of this?

Amazing case mod. I am not a huge fan of strips, but your craftsmanship is amazing!

I love the white pirate logo and backplate on your GPU!

I cant wait to see the finished project!

Everything looks amazing!!!
The black and white theme just looks beautiful, you have manged to mod this case but to keep it professional and clean.

-Sorry for bugging you about this "cup drill"... but can you please tell me where the hell did you found it for 2$???
The cheapest one i was able to find cost 20$.

Big thanks thumb.gif

To be honest with you, as far as i love the way this is looking right now, so much i was kind of insecure in these stripes biggrin.gif.

But, that's just a paint so it's easy to do something different if i ever change my mind
