Special thanks to Mnpctech, alphacool, e22, koolance and ekInstalling Mnpctech case feetNow off to work! Re riveting in new drilled locations, its more sturdy then when I got it. Yes the mobo is inverted, part of my new plan for a unique look, also room for more rad, easy peasy Nb and Vrm block time!Protect work surface, measure three times cut once! WIll clean up everything this just primary cutting. Talk about airflow!
Sorry for the long post, just decided to post current work while im on campus will do a proper build log once the rig is finished, for now yall will get first peek of progress! Today i'm mounting the koolance shroud uptop and re fabricating a back acrylic panel. Also mounting the psu in front bottom, intake for that will be bottom and exhaust out the old front 5.25 bays leaving still the 240 mount and 140 mount now on the bottom for intake
Then measuring twice and ordering stage 2! Hope yall enjoy my progress I know some have been asking so heres the beginning works! Keep ya posted
Interesting with flipped ATX, was hoping for a more sophisticated way of adding more airflow than just cutting a big 'ol hole in the front panel tbh.
Still, looking forward to the continued progress.

Would you be willing to do some thermal testing? I'm interested in knowing how the front and top panel affects the temps under load. It would be nice if you could test it under Valley or something similar loading it until the temps stabilize with both the panels off and on, I would very much appreciate it.
That's a GTX770 and a 3570, correct?
