My 1st WC Project:" BGAIOC " 2T Monster *Finish Log* - Page 5

post #41 of 135

Since the controlers are part of the front panel and I don't like the LEDs holder they came with; I'm including this mod.

Notice the black " cheapo" LEDs holders..fugly :grr: And the chrome replacements

To take it apart, unscrewed everything

Comparing shot of the LEDs holders

Enlarging the hole, with a drill bit

Metal holders in place

Rear shot of the metal holders

Controler internals, notice how the LEDs leads are exposed

Adding some insulation, to prevent short with the metal holders.

Finish mod, now I like them better.

Today I finish 95% of the middle panel, tweaking. So I put it all together and took pictures with the paper mask off.
The first is with flash on

then with the flash off

And finally in place.

Its not perfect but it looks good, I remasked the panel and put it away to continue another day; I'm not finish with yet.



See you at the next post..." If you don't like it, mod it "...CrazyModder....

Next is the front panel bottom piece turn:

I wasn't happy with the shape that I had made before, it wasn't the look I want it, so I :dremel:

Now the look is getting closer to what I wanted , to begin with

The water flow indicator, mounts easy with the included hardware.

The fan and the mounting hardware I'm gonna use, simply I cut some; treaded rod and added some nuts.


Im holding the green plexi, the front panel and the fan, by passing the bolts thru them.

The fan is hold in place by four nuts, very simple.

All in place, need something......paint

Took everything apart to paint the back of the front plate, gloss black fusion ; paint for plastics.

Now with all the masking off , I kinda like it.


I need to change the color of the flow indicator to silver or black, and probably the color of the round housing of the fan; from silver to black, but leaving the impeler silver. Finnaly I might had to detail the plexi pieces, a little more.

See you at the next post...

p0rn. (Kidding) I have 1T and it fills up quick with everything. Especially any digital art that comes along (not p0rn, 2d/3d renderings)

Very nice case and very well done!

There are alot of layers of plexi and hardware, no LANing plans for this case.

Hello again, just in case somebody will find and use for this " mesh " is for gutters, I got it for $2.50 is 6" wide and 20 ft. long is made out of soft rubber like material and it has a nice black color to it. It Amazingthat, it has no name or brand, just a picture of the product in the box. I might had an use for it in some places, maybe for a fan or other stuff.

Well here is the top plate, it has a water level indicator at the top and in the bottom a 120mm fan.

After some more modding to the front green plexi trim, I did a dry fit. I won't bore you with pics of drilling holes and sanding; is the same technique as my previous mods, hand tools and lots of time.

Then after painting and unmasking everything the final product. This time, I used some color washers; I painted some green and some black, I think they make the screws stand out better and help the color scheme. Four screws hold the water level indicator and is the same for the fan, very simple. It's not done yet, I might have to do some more tweaking on it later.


Well thank you all, for your comments .... see you guys at the next post.
