[Long-Term Build Log] MILK (orange / rebel orange 230T) - Page 3

post #21 of 23
Hey man,

I'm just itching for you to provide us with some build updates.
I know you said it is a long term thing and that's cool, I'm just a tad excited about it so to say haha

I have a black 230T and its hard to find others modding them..

I have a Corsair H80i and am going to move my radiator into the driveway with a fan mount like you have in yours. I'm rely keen to see how drilling the holes in the drive bay covers works out for you as I may do the same.

Look forward to your next update and I hope all goes well for you!

Two years later, I have my own 230T, and would still like to see what OP ended up doing. #Necro'd

Hey mate,
I hope this helps you out. I gave up waiting for the OP to post and decided to nob be lazy and just do it myself.
I'm glad I did as it makes my whole rig look very tidy and open/not cluttered.

Here are a couple of pic's of what I had done..

For the front panel/bay covers, I drilled out the holes that are in the covers so the hole goes all the way through for cooling (just like how the lower portion of the front cover is)
I then cut and glued some black stockings behind the bay covers so they looked like the lower front fan with the grill behind the plastic and it also works as a dust filter!

For the main 'U Bracket' I just used so thin sheet metal (you can get it from hardware, around the home or what ever floats your goat..)
I cut it to size then bent it in a vice. if you go for a light gauge of metal you can do most of the bending with just your hands.
It really doesn't have to be that strong, unless you plan on throwing your case around a lot. It just needs to help prop your radiator up and hold it in place - its not under much pressure at all
then I drilled a hole in each side of the 5.25" bay walls where desired to screw the 'U Bracket' in place.
Pro Tip:
I have a small bit of fabric with a knot in it that sits behind one of the bay covers with just a small bit of the fabric sticking out.
I use this to pull on and the knot catches on the bay cover and pulls it off - allowing access to the inside of the front.
With out this, it would be very hard to access the inside as the fadiator and fans block the inside of the 5.25" bays once installed.

My poor illustration..


Side - Nice and clean looking!


Open..


Closed..


And a couple closeups of the 'U Bracket'..
