[Project] The Black Box

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
Okay, I've been talking about modding forever and have finally started.

1. Cut holes in top and bottom for 120mm fans (exhaust )
2. Cut out back hole for better ventilation
3. Paint inside black and re-paint outside black
4. Cut hole in side panel for plexi side
5. Cut hole in plexi for side fan intake

Sorry for no initial pictures of the case, it's a Cooler Master Cavalier. These are the first pics of my taping and marking for cuts.

Okay since I can only add 5 pics per post here are the pictures after the holesaw cuts. 4-1/2 inch hole saw is perfect for a 120mm fan...but you guys know that already =)

This is going to be my ram cooler. I found some thin sheet metal that was already cut off at an angle. Then, i cut out a hole for an 80mm fan. The purpose of the angle is to have it set under my CD drives and extend over my ram. Next, I put it in the metal break and bent it at a 90 degree angle so it will set upright.

Looks good so far, any plans for the front panel?

Nothing will be done to the front panel. It has a brushed finish on the front with a door and I think it looks very sleek. As for the pics I just found this to be the easiest...I had something to host but I forgot my username and password.
