Made some progress today.
I am going to mount my top radiator using some brackets I made out of 3mm thick aluminium. This will allow me to mount it to the top of the case without using the stock 120mm fan mounts. Instead the rad mounts to the bracket, then the bracket mounts to the top edges of the case with M4 allen head screws.
First I tapped the radiator to M4.
These are the brackets. Not perfect but they are mostly hidden from view anyway. They have since been primed and painted white (drying as i type)
And these are the the brackets mounted. Using countersunk screws on the far edges as these bits are flush with the case, the middle ones are not. Hard to explain but its all on video and will be uploaded soon.
Here is the rad brackets, back plate and floor plates. Holes and cuts made for the cabling in the back plate.
Tidy enough for me. I may get some sleeved ones eventually. Maybe.
I also cut the mesh for the front. Not sure if I am going to run with this yet. Its silver now but it as well as the grey plastic trim will be sprayed black tomorrow.
After designing all sorts of mounts and almost buying one for $25, I worked out how I'm going to mount the pump. Simple. Use two of these mounts bolted straight to the back plate. Should do the job (I hope)
More tomorrow. Thanks for looking!
