Project: Shogun - Page 3

post #21 of 31
Thread Starter 
well i guess i havent really posted anything in the last few days. i did a lot of work to the front door as well as the front panel.

the first thing i made sure to do was finish painting the front door. its been half done for weeks now and so i just got fed up with seeing it lying around and i finished it. here it is.

and with the pinstripes


then i bought a 3 fan controller and 2 silenx (18 db / 90 cfm) fans. the only problem was that the silenx fans are so thick! i had to remove the hard drive bay from the case and just put my hard drive(s) in the 3.5" bay. looks much neater and it got the job done!


for the front panel, i decided to get a fighter pilot toggle switch. this thing looks sexy, and i think it fits, hahaha, lets just pray shall we. in order to make that switch fit, i had to use the bottom 5.25" drive bay and the top 3.5" floppy bays to fit it. i took some bondo, put it over the bay covers to make it nice and sturdy. the 3 fan speed controller fits in the lower 3.5" bay and controls the heat sink fan and the front/rear fans.





tell me what you think

thanks guys. so basically in the picture of the front panel all bondo-ed up, i decided to fill it up some more, get it nice and smooth and cover it with the carbon fiber film from mnpctech.com

http://www.mnpctech.com/CarbonFiber.html

i also ordered the aluminum case feet cuz i threw the ones i had out a long time ago. plus this will make it look all nice and neat

http://www.mnpctech.com/CaseFeetMachined.html

i also ordered some modders mesh for the lower half of the front panel where the leds previously were. even though the aluminum mesh has the lowest airflow, the style is more what i am looking for so i hope it turns out nice.

no pics for you guys this time sorry, the stuff should come on monday so im hoping to make some major headway eventually

gentlemen.. and the few ladies out there. i'd like to say that this mod still isnt quite done yet, but the front panel is. i just finished the final meshwork and wired the LEDs to fit in the plastic fittings. i didnt really feel proud of this mod until CD and syrillian boosted my comfidence.. the LEDs really have an impact on this case i think. right now, i believe its my favorite part. i always seem to forget to take pics of me doing the work :-\\ oh well.

here we go.

Sir... this...



...is all the confidence that you need. It speaks volumes all on its own

That is some fine DIY pride there.
