I got my casters off the shelf at Lowes they are 1-1/2" surface mount adds another 1/2" for clearance. They were the smallest they had. I used solid 3/4" poplar 1x2 for the frame which I dado screewd & glued. All put together as mentioned above 70mm over all. I was very careful to place casters directly under the rubber feet of the case. I can see your casters are quit a bit more low profile. Where did you get those? and thanks for posting this all up again I know you done this several times. Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

Castors Unlimited here in UK has them. I use the M8 x 12 mm studs with drilled and tapped holes in base. I'm afraid poplar is too soft to work for threaded studs.

I would assume there is a source of similar if not the same somewhere there.

Could possibly use something like 4 pronged tee nuts and countersink them in to be flush with bottom of base. The hole for stud would need to be 2 sizes; one the outside size of tee nuts to their depth and other the size of stud so stud going beyond tee nut would be support by sides of hole. Probably need to glue tee nuts into bottom of base. Voidless baltic birtch is sold in USA. I know of a couple of places in SoCal that have it. This may be the some. Can't tell for sure. If it was me I would ask the supplier if it is 7 ply voidless solid birch plywood. I used Quick-Set CA (cyanoacrylate) adhesive the consistency of honey and activator to glue the lap joint corners. Assembly of frame is first as two 'L' shaped pieces, then glue these 'L's together. Rockler sell it. They have Baltic birch plywood too, but not 3/8" (9mm). I use 9mm because it is same thickness as Primo base is as well as depth threaded studs screw in. wink.gif
PM me If you want more info.

Hello, fellows!

I’m going to build my rig with Enthoo Evolv ATX with Swiftech H320 X2 on the top position.

But i don’t really like the look of it (the rad and fans covering the mobo)



I’m aware of the top cavity lifehack that enables to place a fans inside the top cover (at least 2x140mm)


So my question is: will it possible to put 3x120mm fan in this cavity?
Otherwise I’ll just buy smaller AIO to put it this way.

You can absolutely do the same for three 120mm....and they will be as absolutely useless as two 140mm in that location!

The fans up there are mounted almost directly against the top, they can't breathe and move almost no air.

Have you tried that? Because I've heard that there is about 45mm of free space on top, that leaves us with 20mm of space with a fans mounted. I think it's the same amount the front fans have by default.
I can't find any real tests of this modification, sadly.

I would expect it to increase thems. tongue.gif

a fan needs about 45mm of free space for air to flow to or away from the fan. tongue.gif
Listen to ciarlatano, he knows what he is talking about.

Thank you!
But what if I place top fans as intake in this cavity and do some CNC **** with the top panel for better airflow? (as someone suggested in the older post)
Will it help? I really like the look of this case without this sandwich on top. (the front pannel reserved for hybrid gpus)
post #13398 of 19100
Someone posted a mod a few pages back with something that cut holes into the top portion of the case. I mean if you're comfortable doing that to a new case....

Outside of that, you'd just need a dust filter and call it a day.

What Pez said.

If you put a vent over the fans it will work. But make sure the vent is not too restrictive.

Doyll, as much as we both don't care for Corsair, what do you make of the fans that they've announced? 2K RPM fans with a floating magnetic bearing. I'll look for a link.

EDIT:

The "Build it Cooler - A Revolutionary New Range of Magnetic Levitation Technology Fans" section tongue.gif.

http://www.guru3d.com/news_story/corsair_shows_cool_new_gear_at_computex.html

EDIT2:

I'm also curious what you think about the TG panel of the Pro M TG working on the Acrylic Edition. I imagine it either will as they kept the same chassis to save money, or they pulled something slick like offsetting the holes a couple mm to make them incompatible.. I have emailed their sales and support emails, and I'm patiently awaiting a response tongue.gif.
