What to do with this front?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hey guys, was looking for suggestions on what to do with this front piece of my case.

The case is a cheap case I picked up at a local computer show.

here's a pic of the front:



If you want one of the back of the panel/inside front I can do that. Basically It's all plastic, the led's for the power/hdd and the thermometer don't really work all too well anymore.

Behind the front I have 80mm intake fan w/a blue led.

On the right is 2 usb and a firewire port. The ridges along the side are hollow (I'm pretty sure).

My initial thought was to put a 120 in the drive bays, since I'm only using one. I'll have to dig up the actual cover for that one instead of the cdrom front.

I don't have a floppy in there either. I was thinking of incorporating some black mesh into it somehow except I can't think of anyway to really anchor it. The entire bottom of the front can pretty much go or be cut, I have no issues relocating the power/reset button somewhere else. I also don't necessarily need the front ports, as I have plenty of them in the back of my case, and I really only use them for my ipod.

I've been tossing around ideas but I'm not really getting anywhere with them, so I thought I'd look for some external help.

The only issue is tools I have available. I'm in an apartment So i'm basically limited to my dremel, which isn't a big deal at all, but i don't have any crazy presses/actual drills.

Lol, that is an eyesore, dude.

Relocate the buttons and cut a hole for a 120MM fan? Maybe even a 1x120 radiator for a WC setup?
