Ideas for the new front panel. I do like the square version better but I wanted to see what the circled version looked like as well.










Then a recolor of the logo. I might flip the colors to white text and green logo.

Why not go with both? Have a rectangle with rounded corners. thumb.gif It would match the overall shape of the Prodigy.

That would work well. Thanks for the idea, I will add it to the plans smile.gif

Something like this.

Front Panel with rounded corners and logo




I think this is the final design for the front. I will still have a piece made that has 2 fan holes but I will have to figure something else out for the logo.

Glad my suggestion contributed. thumb.gif

If you decide to do 2 fan holes, maybe put the logo on the mesh for the fan hole instead? I have no idea how that would be done, but that would be pretty damn cool.

Well considering there is no more mesh that will be hard to do.



I may clean the cutout up a bit. Make it more squared on the bottom maybe. But I did my best to retain most of the fan mounting points when I did the cutout.

So I have been messing around with routing what tubing I can until I get my CPU and install the water block. This was my original idea. I was going to use a grommet fitting and add a drain port to the bottom of the case. But then I got to thinking that I could do it in a more convenient way. First thing I had to do was turn the HDD cage 180° so I had enough room for the drain line and could still access the drives.

I am still working on the routing but this is just the first attempt. Will post pics later once i finalize the area near the video card.

So now onto what I think will be the final routing of at least the return part of the loop and the drain valve.



















Now some shots of the pump mounted to the HDD cage, the planned routing of the pump to cpu block tube and the trickiness that will be the CPU block to radiator connection.









The connection going out of the pump will be just long enough to fit the compression cap on and then curve up and go toward the rear of the case. I am most likely going to get an L connector like the T used for the drain line and then a piece will curve down from there into the fitting on the lower end of the CPU block. That is a rather tricky bend to make and unless I order more tubing I have no room for error, Only 1 full 24" piece left.









I am not sure on how I am going to get the connection from the rad to the CPU block to work. It will be interesting to see how it works out.

Wow, space looks really tight with all (well, almost all) the water cooling in!

Nah its not bad at all. Especially with the front mesh removed. I can get my hands in there and actually manipulate the fittings. If I had mad a much shorter 24 pin cable and routed it between the HDD cage and the PSU enclosure it wouldn't look as cramped. I may try and reroute it in some manner that direction, see how it looks. The area that is really cramped is hidden when the side panels are on.
