[Project] Stacker 810 'Firefight' - Page 48

post #471 of 1083
Thread Starter 
Initially I was going to make an additional 'device bay' at the top of the case to house front I/O ports, reset and power buttons just like Cooler Master did on their new HAF case.
http://www.pccasegear.com/index.php?...oducts_id=8042

(BTW, if CM came out with HAF before I started 'Firefight', I would most likely just buy it instead of doing extensive 'Stacker' mod)

But now I am happy with the stock solution on the Stacker (at least for now) so instead of extra 'bay' I will do some light modding to the top decorative pieces.




I plan to cut out the 'CMSTACKER' bit from the black bit and replace it with acrylic and mesh.
The silver round bit will be covered up with carbon fibre film and MAYBE have some cut outs in it.
Then inside the assembly I will install few LEDS so that the front part will light up a bit.

Of course your feedback and ideas are most welcome but be aware I am trying to keep this part reasonably simple - no oven will be involved this time lol!

Cheers all
Firefight!

I'm glad you're doing this mod. The HAF is not exactly pretty. Yours looks like it will have a lot more detail and elegance.

I really like the idea of the CF film on the silver piece. I'm not sure how the mesh might look on the black piece however. I think bondo'ing in the "cmstacker" lettering and everything + painting the black piece to match the case would look nice IMO.

thanks, in retrospect I am happy that I did start the project - lot more fun than simply populating new stock case.

Cool, so looks like I can lock-in the CF film idea on the silver part.
To make sure I get u right, u saying I fill the CM text logo part smooth with bondo and then paint the whole piece?

I feel the need to bring some lighting into the top front area of the case or I will have a bad looking dark dead spot wile rest of the case is lit up.
This already becoming evident from the photos I took recenlty with all the ducts lit up.

So I was going to remove the text logo and replace it with acrylic and matching mesh piece. The mesh would be limted to the small acrylic area only and would be glued onto the acrylic. I want the mesh to be flush with the surrounding surface.

I will make up a diagram later today to explain my intentions.

Also I will need to start working on side panel windows soon...
