Finally, I had some time to work on it again...

I started spray painting the panels and it takes at least until tomorrow night until they will be finished. In the meantime, I installed the waterblocks on my cpu and gpu.

Today I finished the bottom slotted panel. Looking good so far smile.gif

Before installing the bottom, I put a thin layer of anti-vibration padding on the frame.

What a day...

Initially, all looked good. The fan bracket looks quite nice and fits almost perfectly. Unfortunately, My initial measurements were off by 2 mm which caused some trouble. I had to remove the part of the frame that was supposed to hold the mainboard tray in order to fit the radiators inside that tiny space. Then, I cut them shorter and found a way around my problem (see pics).

I also started working on the mainboard tray which I messed up. The saw slipped twice and created some nasty scratches. I will keep it though until all is done and order a properly cut one from a metal workshop since my tools are not ideal.

My new dilema is the placement of the pump/res. I can either fit it horizontally like in the pictures or vertically with a shorter tube above either the ram or the plx heatsink. Wht do you guys think?

Thanks smile.gif

It still sits a bit too low for the "floating effect", but that should be no problem with some washers as spacers.

Subbed! Really nice build so far and ''no fancy craftsmanship'' statement was clearly a lie!
post #30 of 97
Impressiv work so far! thumb.gif Subbed.
Would you mind sharing some measurments concerning the plate holding the MB? What are your plans for back and top?
I came to this forum, because i wanted information about the BH4 caselabs. But it was soon clear, that it wont fit my needs. This build of yours I'd love to build myself with all the credits to you ofc. biggrin.gif If you want to fit anoter 280.2, i could imagine, that it would fit into the top like in the bulletcase-series. Or maybe turned by 90° ?
Thanks for shareing this build.
