Corsair 200R Mod (FREEFLOW)

CORSAIR 200R Case Mod -

FREEFLOW


Purchased Corsair 200R case, its a Budget case but for some reason im really drawn to it, my other case is a 700D, so must just be my Fanboyism towards Corsair LMAO

Ive chosen freeflow as the name of this build due to the mods ive got planned im my head and hopefully will become apparent as soon i start posting some pics

If anyone has any ideas which they think will improve the overall mod in any way then please just message, im totally open to any new suggestions or ideas, theres no set plan just a rough idea of what id like to achieve


Hope you enjoy my MOD and hopefully i bring something new to the party.

Cheers thumb.gif


Heres sum pics of untouched 200R





looking at the interior of the case there is a fair amount of storage options which is, in my mind redundant to my needs,



I have 3 ssd's and 1 hardrive i plan on using in this build

So my first thought is to remove the hardrive cage



followed by the cd drive cage





also have deciding that id like to mount 3 x 120mm fans in the front of the case so all that excess metal needs to be removed before new mounting is made and attached





ignore any rough lines etc will be tidyed up before new pieces are made and attached

my original plan was to use part of the HHD Cage ( 1 section ) to house my 1 HDD that soon change after working out sizes of having 3 fan and HDD could no longer be mounted at bottom front



My plan is to have a basically a open plan interior with as little as possible interference with airflow within the case Hence the name free flow next few pic's shows how im planning on achieving this,

Follow pics shows rough template ive made to house my 3 SSD's ( used old acrylic from pc panel found in loft)








as you can see my 3 ssds will fit nicely against rear back of case

This is my next effort at a finale piece of acrylic for top back section



theres another piece planned for bottom half section for HDD to mount onto just waiting for more acrylic to arrive through post frown.gif

Just making template to show my plan for the front of the case to house 3 x 120mm fans



as you've probably noticed the fans after going to be centered more towards the left of the case this is to ensure clearance of the SSD platform and again as little restriction as possible fo the airflow

More pics soon and a more concise and worded build log

Like the use of the acrylic for the SDD mounting, makes them look quite snazzy smile.gif - shame you wont be able to see it from the outside!

Be interested to see what you do to make sure the cabling and other bits and bobs are out of the way of to keep airflow going...
