Yes I know the feeling of not being able to get something done because of the lack of funds.. Azure has gone way over budget and now I am actually feeling the pinch when I am moving onto The Clone.

but Never a bother..I will wait and watch every step you take with this mod.

ZOMG! AN UPDATE!



So without further ado, here is the (minimal) work I have done.






I cut out the rear 80mm fan holes with my (cheap/crappy) holesaw. It is/was warped and wobbly so the cuts need an excessive amount of filing left to be done on them

I have no clue why my camera would not take this pic right,lol. Both shots are at the same time on my porch in evening sunlight, it just kept going crazy,lol. Sorry



NOW, the big news! The rough cut mock up panel from Syrillian got here today!!!


The box!



The label, Syrillian thanks the laugh, I really did 'lol' when I saw this!




The goodies inside!! Obviously the mock up panel (the final version will have "x"s in the middle of teh cutouts), the cutouts are 120mm for four fans. Syr also sent some sandpaper to clean up the edges if I so choose (I doubt I will though, since this is a test/fit panel), one acrylic drill bit for making mounting holes for the fans, and some hardware (nuts/bolts) to secure the fans. I'm so excited about this, now I can get to cutting the actual window in the case and see how the fitment of (mostly) everything will be!




This is how good Syr is. I sent him the measurements of my template (that is behind the acrylic here) and he cut the window, without ever laying eyes on the actual template. I placed it beneath the acrylic and it lines up perfectly.



LOL, this was my CD pose


So that wraps it up for this update (), sorry for the short amount of work However, with the window mock up here, I can now (as previously stated) cut the case window and test fit. I started back my campus job this week so I'll have some funds for primer/paint soon as well. This project is getting back on track!


Thanks for the continued support and patience guys!!

~Matt




Edit: PJ/Prosser/Spooky - can one of you change the title to say updated August 26. Apparently I haven't posted here in so long it won't let me change it myself anymore

The window does indeed look awesome. It will be really sweet with the "x"s in it. If you look at the pic I have of the template behind the acrylic, the bottom left circle, that is the design that will be in the window fan holes. Only the four outer portions will be cut out, leaving the center "hub" and the "x".

It's also bronze acrylic, really sexy, same color as Syr is using for Silentium IIRC.

My week is pretty well consumed with school and work, but I hope to keep the progress going from here. I'm going out of town for the weekend, but I have two days off for Labor Day, so hopefully I can get the window mocked-up on the panel and the case side cut.

YaY!

You got the package, and it was undamaged

Lookin sharp there Repo.


Heh! Yes... I ship to the lower galactic arm... but transit time is several million years as FTL is down at the moment, and the dynamic wormhole generator is on the fritz ....


lol.


So... is the sizing on the panel okay?

Once I wrap up Silentium I will start the Final Panel, but I do need to check with McStuff as he is next on the docket for a build.

Here's to you

@ lower galactic arm!

The panel seems fine as far as size goes, but as of now I've yet to get some tape and put it on the case panel and check for clearances. I'm going to see fam for the holiday but I will be back Monday, work will resume then.

Eying it though, it looks great, and I love the color, it's perfect! :

Sept. 7 - The window is cut

Been working on this since early Saturday, but figured I would wait to post until it was done. With Syrillian's mock up panel here I checked and rechecked my placement of the acrylic window behind the side panel for clearances. I then sketched/traced the template I made onto the side panel, decided to move it again, and finally got to cutting the panel. Pics!





This was the spot I had after all the fittings. The lines show exactly how far over and up I could go with the window and still have clearance as the panel not only has to slide back, but also up a bit for everything to come off (dang back/top/side panel lol)




Just checking where it will sit, and tracing the cuts onto the panel.




The template




My template and Syr's window traces were a bit different,lmao I ended up not liking the placement of the cut here so I cut a bit of excess of the acrylic panel to pull the cutout over/toward the rear of the case some.




~1" cut off the side of the window. (Man it really hurt to cut that window, it was so beautiful/perfect from Syr,lmao)




Sprayed some gray paint over the old markings I had and redrew them now that I had the panel cut.




I traced the four outer circles with the window, and used a C.D. for the connecting angles.




Pilot holes drilled for my jigsaw




(My neighbor borrowed my [old] sawhorses and broke them They crippled up enough for one last stand ) The tool of destruction/creation,lol.




Repo himself in an action shot! My friend was over helping hold the panel, so I was like, ohhh get an action shot! LOL




Finally cut! Looks awesome to me, just how I envisioned it, I love when plan comes to fruition. (Still needs some filing though, I have to buy a rounded bastard file, all I have is a flat one )




How it will look with the window behind it




So, finally, more work! I have some small pieces I've been working on I'll post pics of later today. Things falling together now! I still need to get a few small things in order as far as extras inside the case, of course paint, and fans (probably the most expensive part of the build ) As always, thanks for watching guys!!
