Updates for today.
Im changing a few things/plans with my build as I get near the end
First things.. did some more bending over the weekend. Almost all of my bends are done but one in the bottom department. The 2 x 90 bend from the mid plate to cpu took 4 tries before I got it to what I wanted.
Also got the new frontplate installed here are some pictures of them.
If you notice the bump on the tj07 frame.. I did that years ago when I overtightened a screw
Any ideas on how to fix it? Theres also a few spots where the paint has scratched and ive considered touching it up or having the case powder coated has anyone done this before?
I also sanded the motherboard down and took everything apart over the weekend. The motherboard tray is currently at the powdercoater and should be done this weekend. Ill post pictures as soon as I get it back
I got a great deal and hope to have found a new powder coater.
I also made my "final" order I hope lol for the case and parts.
Ill also be drilling a circle hole in my inverted backplate at the top to add a rocker switch to it. This rocker switch will control any LEDS in the case including slight/ssd mount and any others that are added. I will run all of the leds to a molex to fan board
and then connect that to the rocker switch.
So now the new drain plan. Ill be putting this together this week once the package arrives from performance pcs. I am borrowing this idea from a previous buildlog because I honestly think its genius. The only concern I have is making such a large hole in the unibody of the case which pretty much cant be repaired but I think its what I want to do.
This is a drawing of the general idea and this is a picture of how it should look when its done. These pictures are not mine and I will post my own once it is made.
There is a cap on the bottom of that fill port so to drain all I would have to do is put the computer over the desk and remove the cap Edited by Kenjiwing - 9/17/13 at 8:23am
