Yeah, this case gives you the basics and lets the rest be up to you.
Dont know if that was intended, but it feels like that is the way the case is headed (toward a modder community).

I'm still impressed with what you get for the price and what you can do without modding. Those side rails have come in handy, for cable management and in my case , supporting pump/res's , temp sensors.. Basically a great canvas. These days I try to adapt my ideas to what's there before modding..

I am looking for a twin tail LED for the back panel, just above the USB. I also need a harness to tie it to panel and locking vandal switch.

Anyone know of a good online seller for these parts?

Done w/ the mod!

Busy last 48 hours trying to install the fourth Monsta. What a challenge but I did prep in advance and took lots and lots of measurements. Some minor re-thinking as some things were not anticipated but tbh, they were just small obstacles to clear. All the tube had to be redone and also the wiring for the exception of a couple of runs. Looks more crowded but I think I've taken the X9 to the max w/out adding a second in stacked mode. Finished for now. Promised the wife no more upgrades in lieu of a bike to deal w/ 5pm traffic (mad.gif). Going w/ a 500 or 700 cc as this is my first smile.gif










Alright, now to the main attraction! CL psu bracket for the magnum, in reverse now going in the X9. Had to trim off a bit of the corner to clear a rivet and drilled a bunch of holes to allow for ventilation (more). I left the exposed aluminum as is since it was shiny and will go nicely w/ the chrome of the fittings and blocks biggrin.gif.





Went with zip ties to hold down the psu. Used the foam pads CL includes w/ the bracket. One of the 6-32 holes was used as the other was smack in the middle of an opening in the front panel. Small 5-32 hole and a screw w/ washer was it for the front. For the side, I was lucky the X9 has many mounting holes (and to give the brace more strength). I just drilled a few larger holes to barely catch the stock holes and bolt down the bracket to the side rail/brace. worked out great and gives the hole thing plenty of strength. If you have doubts, remember my 3rd Monsta w/ push/pull was mounted on the side for a month biggrin.gif
