Modding the top

Since I have no tools and no craftmanship biggrin.gif

Where could I get something like this made, how much do you think it would cost, and on a 1-10 how difficult do you think it is?

Would be sweet if I had a 3D printer thumb.gif but I don't and I need something like that top to have an even more efficient radiator setup

if materials doesnt matter , Wood would be the easiest

with a 3d printer it would take hours lol and lots of material lol , in alluminium , it would be kinda expensive since its bigger than one inch

Wood would be the best and fastest , someone with a CNC could do it in minutes , or you could mod your way with the lian li thing biggrin.gif

Agreed. Superglue is good for surface-to-surface bonding, but it will dry out eventually and will lose its adhesiveness. Honestly, for this I don't know of any adhesive that would fit unless you were doing metal to metal which I would suggest JBWeld.

Epoxy or screws.
post #9 of 9

i also forgot and did not realize that i would either need really long fan screws that will secure the radiator on top
im not sure if i should try to mod this anymore or leave the 200mm fan up top as it is mad.gif

thanks for trying to help me out guys +rep to ya,
i think its a lost cause at this point frown.gif im no professional and i dont even think a pro would want to do this

if i get the balls , i might buy some mesh, cut out the rectangle in my plastic top piece, and use some epoxy glue and just put grills on the fans.


any suggestion on the epoxy?
