Hi Guys,

 

to facilitate placement of the side fan block I sawed facades side of the 900D, leaving only the bare minimum for fixing Cooling Towers, about 1 cm.

 

 

 

I put the paper tape on the facades of the case.

 

 

 

Given that these are in contact with the sides TdR to avoid removing unnecessary parts, outside there is in fact  the aluminum profiled, I reassembled the 3 parts and marked along the Cooling Tower profiled  the protruding parts of the case.

 

 

 

Once I have removed everything I cut the  marked parts

 

    

 

Now the side fan block has the possibility to come out sideways of about 2 mm per side.

 

    

 

Finally I tried to compare the space inside with the original  PSUs supports, as I suspected, I cannot put the 2 PSUs on the same side, I'll put one front and one rear. 

 

The solution of putting all 2 PSUs on the same side although more traditional,  in reality convince me less because it would have gone to impact heavily on the air flow creating a block.

I have accumulated so many leftovers that I have a small materials warehouse, considering the measures 160 x 150mm and adding a margin of 20 mm on each side, that then I'm going to bend inward to secure everything to Cooling Towers.

I had own the aluminum sheets of 200 x 200 mm. I put the paper tape marked at 190mm, cut and filed, all 4 panels.

 

   

 

I reported the project drawing on the face covered with paper tape, showing both contours that openings.

 

 

I removed with the dremel the parts; actually for the circular hole I wasn't prepared, in this case I removed roughly with a Dremel,  at the end proved to be very effective the file (which has a side semicircular), and my hand surprisingly suited to the movement and I placed Aquatube and Filter.

 

 

 

I marked the holes for the screws, easy thing for the filter, much less for Aquatube .....

 

  

 

As always, I took the opportunity to have the piece mounted for testing the final structure of the piece.

I have therefore better equipped me, I found two cups 64mm and 60mm, here I make a comparison with the hole in the old piece with the hole of 64 mm

 

  

 

You will not believe but the 64mm cup, which seems perfect, makes a hole too wide, where I haven't margin to fix the hole with the file, also because there are the mounting holes around. Instead of the 60mm cup, who leaves 2 mm on each side to remove the file by hand with give a perfect result! 

 

I have redesigned  support  putting the filter behind with the attacks upwards, I opted for a square hole to fit the screws holding the glass.

 

 

I modified a bit the technique used previously, I drew the design on the panel, made ​​a hole in the center of the circle, used the 60mm  cup for the circular opening and the Dremel for that square.

 

  

 

A big  file work to remove several mm in both holes, I must admit that I'm re-evaluating much of the  file work, you can obtain a considerable accuracy. 

For the mounting holes for the filter there are no problems just mark them, for acquatube this time I was much more accurate, I have done a  in holes calque with a paper and pencil and then I cut the inner circle corresponds to the size of the glass.

And here is the result, after subtracting 2 cm margin to fold for fixing, the 3.5 cm will allow me to put the 90° connector or make a turn with tube.

 

    

 

One particular thing I want to highlight this project is that I have to make the pieces more times: towers are 2; supports for the Monsta are 4; the supports for the 4 fans are 4; openings  for 4 fans in the case are 2 and so on.

 

Also in this case found the method and made ​​the piece, in reality I must do 4 of its.

I used the first made as a template, I fixed with clamps, marked in pencil, mark the center of the circle, drilled with the drill, and then I used the same technique used previously.

 

and two

 

  

 

And 3, and 4

 

 

 

 

 

But it wasn't so easy, I have therefore accumulated some wrong pieces , but I had the satisfaction of seeing the look without the paper and film.

Still a bit of work to file

 

 

I marked on all the  pieces a 20 mm edge and 45 mm from the corners, a part that I have to remove so that the piece  fits on the Cooling Tower where in the corners there are the L-type brackets, which are precisely of 25 mm. 

 

 

 

I folded the pieces to get the form suitable for fixing

 

     

 

I have tried the supports in their slot and have to say that perfection was what I wished

 

 

 

To get an overview I put all the parts in place, here's a front and rear view, plus two from the top.

I'm passed to the  fixing stage, I marked the positions of the screws with a pencil and nail, then I checked with Stainless Steel Filter that the position of the screws don't obstruct the fittings or pipes

 

 

 

And here I present to you my new Tools taken for this Work

 

 

 

I positioned  the support on the Cooling Tover , blocked all in position with a metal sheet outside  and some clamps.  

I drilled with the new joint for the drill in the marked points, I screwed up and the result is really very solid!

 

   

 

How you can imagine I tried again the Aquatube and the Steel Filter on the support to see the effect, but especially the interior spaces arrangement.

Hi Guys, :wave2:

 

I realize the supports for 4  front 140mm fans and a fastening system.

The fastening system that I thought having to anchor the 900D original front frame, instead looks great anchored to the structure of Cooling Tower as I tried last time.:thumb:

 

But I cannot fix a bar posterior to the vertical profile of Cooling Tower, as I had originally thought because protruding to the inside of some mm over the fixing screws, so probably it would touch the radiator, so I thought of another solution .....:thinking:

 

But from the beginning, I realized the fan supports 

 

     

 

I also did a trial installation of the fans on all the pieces, I was very pleased indeed all the pieces were perfect on the first try and did not require adjustments.

 

  

 

At this point I realize the horizontal bars that I will use to attach the fans supports to the main structure.

 

   

 

To make the bends I used a Profiled of 2.5 cm as a base and one of the cut pieces as a block. 

I repeated the operation and I got the desired result! :thumb:

 

    

 

Then I passed to make placement tests

I continued work on the front fans blocks, starting from the prepared parts 

 

    

 

To keep the two sides in the correct position I put 4 fans. 
I then placed the block on the supports where I have to fix in order to verify the measures taken, everything matched.
 

 

 

I blocked the piece in place with 2 screws, I drilled and screwed. Repeating the operation for both the media got the complete piece.

 

  

 

I positioned the piece with 4 clamps and a profile under which prevented the support to protrude inward, I drilled and fixed.

 

    

 

I tried to place the front exterior of the 900D and everything fits, also on the inside.

 

 

 

I then did the same steps for the other fans block 

 

    

 

Here are both supports mounted

 

 

 

These are the blind nuts between which will choose for fixing the cover.

I did a little finishing touches on the  front and rear fans blocks.

 

      

 

I reassembled everything and here is the result

I then worked on the rear panel with the slot for the Mobo and VGAs, I removed it

 

   

 

and I fixed in its new location

 

   

 

I then perfected the rear opening for the 4 140mm fans, removing part of the edge

 

       

 

this is the result
