I like that you're not afraid to cut into the plastic panels of a brand new case, I'll be following this build closely.
Also, that colour scheme was exactly what I was thinking for my build. biggrin.gif

like space toast said, its more of a layers thing (bit like a small Ogre or large Onion. Its 0.8mm SECC Steel on the top and ABS Plastic under it which has sound proofing foam stuck to it..... got to cut the lot...... will then hopefully have enough room for fans between the case structure and the front of the steel..... i think i will have to make the cut in the plastic a different to that on the steel so i can gain a few extra millimetres and avoid the panel warping.

And i think the colour would look great, i think flat-pack cases are something that companies should seriously debate where people can easily swap in and out panels for different colours. i'de pay £50 extra for that any day if it saved me paining and sanding and riveting.

The Ikea Deshkatopa... get on it tongue.gif haha

Just a quick one... I've ordered...

- PSU (EVGA Supernova G2 850W)

- Sleeving:
White - Lutro0 Teleios 4mm Premium Grade Cable Braid
Blue - Shakmods 4mm Dense Weave Round Cable Braid

- Cable Combs: clear

- Heatshrink white and blue

I was thinking, can i heatshrink the wires before braiding them? so that there is no chance of other colours or wording coming through the braid???

i have some black steel mesh behind the cutouts so you dont see them directly, but it doesnt look bad when you are really trying to see them... plus it gives it some depth and dimension. The in between thing was a thought before but went this route. and to be honest if, you really wanted to squeeze the fans in there you could always get the thin 12-15mm ones. for between it for a guaranteed fit. but i dont think a 25 would make it. I would try but i dont want to risk damaging the mesh.





Ive since, only removed the fan filter.

My thought was to cut a fan diameter cut into the black plastic and then make the white metal top just have circular cuts for the fan blades to show, should give me about 8mm I think once the sponge is removed too.
