Typically I would go all out with the design but, this case requires a few small styling details. Sketchup is a great program for quick design but, it doesn't convey materials and colors to my liking. The final paint job will be airbrushed and distressed to give it a battle hardened look.Top Panel: Design
The top panel of the case will have 3 X 80–120mm fans to exhaust warm air. I have aluminum bezels that dress up the exhaust openings. The trim pieces will be cut from acrylic and mounted using hex headed bolts.
The two red indicator lights are ones that were ordered specifically for this build. The indicator lights are very mechanical looking and fit well with the overall styling. More than likely I will cutout sections of the acrylic trim and place modders mesh behind it. Theres a mount for both a power and reset switch on either side of the corresponding indicator lights.Front Panel: Design
The design for the front panel may change a bit but, the main view will display the SC2 logo front and center. The original case had a cut out for 4 optical drives and two smaller bay devices. Once the new panel is cut it will have one less optical bay and no lower small device mount.
Under the SC2 logo two intake fans will pull in air over the hard drives and SSDs. I have custom designed a dual fan mount for these fans that will be 3D printed. The fan grills will also be 3D printed in the matching honeycomb grills found throughout the case. I plan on adding a few small touches to the front of the case as the design progresses.
