post #791 of 865
I have a question, i did this mod but i also cut the motherboard try to fit the power supply so it can exhaust on the side of the case, but i can see the motherboard try did bent a bit..
Do you think i can make a new one from 1.0mm or 1.5mm aluminum sheet, will it be strong enough to support the motherboard and psu?
Also would it be possible to make a new side panel or just drill the current one so the entire side would be able to exhaust the psu hot air and motherboard heat outside?
Tnx a lot your mod inspired me to try modding a case..

Fk yeah man!! Awesome to hear that I was able to inspire you to mod with your Metis!!

I would not use anything less than 2mm thickness since you would have to drill and tap new holes for the motherboard standoffs. 1.5mm is not enough in thickness frown.gif

In regards to making a new side panel. It is absolutely possible to make a new one for better ventilation. No problems there. Only problem that I see is that you will not be able to get the brushed look on the new panel to match the old one and also look the same as the rest of the case.

Just took a look at the photos of your red Metis that you have posted. It would prob be easiest just to cut a rectangular shape with rounded corners in the place just where the PSU exhaust is. It would use the same panel and look great. Also, really nice work on modding the motherboard panel to fit the PSU panel like you did.

If you are having clearance issues with the power cable and you still want to mount the power cable to the rear of the chassis like how it was when you purchased it, you could make a rectangular spacer what has the gap for venting for the PSU. Mount this part to the PSU, then mount the acrylic and PSU to the motherboard panel. This will increase the space between the PSU and that rear panel smile.gif

The red one was the first try, in inverting the motherboard while i waited for the parts to arrive for it, its for my girlfriend.
Mine is silver, but its not finished still waiting new RX 580 and some slim fans for bottom of the case.. here is a bit dusty potato picture..

For the psu i have cut some Plexiglas to give some depth so i can close the side panel.. But i took it off i wana try and make it from 4mm aluminum it looks much better and its much easier to cut. Also some feet adjustments i need to make smile.gif

For a permanent mounting solution, just use a strong and THIN double sided tape (Important that it is thin otherwise you will run into fitment issues). If you want to do what I did, drill two holes around 2mm into the panel, then tap them. easy peasy!

That motherboard flip mod took me no more than 5mins.

Ok dude, you dared me and I did it. Thank you!!

It was indeed easy. I have neither used tape nor made holes yet, at the moment the one screw in the middle between where you made the holes seems to suffice. I'll see how long this works.

The hotspot behind the on/off-button is no longer hot now. The CPU can get cool air from the metis plus opening. Now the bottom panel gets quite warm, but this will improve once I make holes in the bottom so the GPU can suck in air. Also the ssd must go somewhere else. My overall goal is to have as few fans as possible and keep the semi-fanless psu silent. Having only one 120mm plus whatever the gpu does would be great, maybe this can work with the new improved airflow. Currently I have the psu turned so that it sucks air from the small gap between psu and front panel, maybe I'll turn it around again.

If someone in Germany is looking for a green Metis Plus window panel, I would be interested in trading it for a regular side panel in green. It has to the Metis Plus though as the green is different from a normal Metis. No money involved.
