I thought of this being a lost project and a lost case but than I saw a picture here and I have ordered that same radiator bracket. This one might save my a**! I dont know why I was not going for THAT solutuion from the beginning thinking.gif



Hope my case is coming out fine now thumb.gif

Dude, that looks great smile.gif

Thanks for the Video.
Seems like "some like it hot" 70-75°C is something!

Gonna go for a some notches lesser hardware: i3 instead of i7 CPU, 1060 instead of 1080 GPU.
Still seems like one will have to put the Metis on the window sill for cooling now and then smile.gif

Or take the challenge and modding to perfection.

Just completed a Raijintek build. Admittedly not the Metis. It's a Styx but seemed the best (or close to it) place to post. Really wanted the Metis given its size but already had a mATX board and wanted the optical drive.

I know the logo is upside down, but I think it looks fine. To fit the EVGA GTX 1080 FTW card, I had to remove its shroud and even now the heat pipes of the card touch the front plate of the case. I also removed the stock fans and laser cut an acrylic bracket that allows two 120mm fans to suck air in through the original psu hole. The psu is also mounted using an acrylic bracket that's attached to the motherboard mount. Still need to sleeve some cables and waiting for a vandal switch since the current switch doesn't fit with my custom fan bracket.




That's a really nice mod.

How hard were those mods to make? Would a 120mm fan fit at the top as an extra outtake, with a smaller CPU cooler, such as the H7 (blowing air upwards)?
The case market is really depressing, just disappointment after disappointment.

The case mods were easy. I just used shears and a drill press to make a cutout for the PSU. The hard part was creating the acrylic plates for the bottom fans and PSU. (@Advokatrix look at the piece to the right. I had two of those laser cut out of 1/8" acrylic to mount the PSU)



The fan plate I used was design for the exact fans I bought so it took 3 iterations before everything fit perfectly. And yes you can fit a slim 120mm fan uptop but I see no need as the temps seem fine so far.

Are the acrylic PSU brackets to make the cable to the PSU fit?
What kind of noise do you get? Are both the bottom and the back set as intakes (and did you cut out the back "mesh" to put that 120mm fan through it)?

How tight is that CPU heatsink fit? Can you really put on the side lid?

This mod seem so amazing, really starting to consider if I shouldn't just go this route... Well, that is if AM4 gets decent mITX boards anytime soon.

Alright, thx for the info. Getting custom laser cut parts is not an option for me unfortunately. I might look for a workaround.

Furthermore, I finally cut out the top lid. The dremel tool is really much better for me. Very easy to use. This is my very first time using a dremel btw. thumb.gif





I just have to smooth out the edges and drill the mounting holes.
Very small steps in my modding process but maybe it is helpful to someone who wants to get into modding the first time as well. DONT USE HOLE SAWS UNLESS YOU HAVE A DRILL PRESS! biggrin.gif
