It was rather simple once I centered the fans and sized the mounting plate.

You so far had no troubles with that foam PVC holding the radiator up?

Hmmm, may stop by Lowes or HomeDepot to find me some.

I got $12 worth of 22(ish) gauge sheet for three panels to fit in my 932 mod. Just need to break out a grinder or my Dremel to cut them to fit. biggrin.gif

Good to know I could used foam plexi however. thumb.gif

No problems at all. It's supported on the sides via being riveted to the case and just the nature of the rad being a rigid structure doesn't induce any bending. It's been assembled for about 6-8 months I think and the front panel is still dead straight. My back plate however, the one that my res is secured to could use a little reinforcing. But that's holding a res full of water and has no nearby support. That being said the sag on that hasn't changed since day one when I mounted it and it's not all that drastic.

Alright.

I probably find me that foam PVC then.
I plan to mount the res and pump to the bottom of my case. Just going to have to get a bit creative with my drives.

Can we not join this club anymore?

I have a 922.... love to join so i can chat and gain knowledge on modding and general things on my case!

Currently learning as much as I can about case painting... so that i can do a decent enough job of painting the inside of my case a sexy black lacquer


Thanks
Liam

Yes you can join the club. Just don't know if OP is updating anything, but if you look in OP there is an application link. smile.gif

You can ask whatever you wish without being a member of the club.

I will help you with drilling out rivets. You need a short body drill and a 1/8" bit. Never drilled out a 922 but have taken out all the rivets in a 932. I would simply caution being careful which ones you drill out. There are rivets in the top front for the 5.25 bay and rivets in the bottom opposite for the HDD rack.

You can find painting tutorials on YouTube for those questions. But if you'received going to paint I suggest sipping the Powder Coating with Eastwood's aircraft grade stripper and then priming the case once you have it down to bare metal. Invest in a cheap air compressor and get yourself a Gravity fed HVLP gun for best results. That's about $150 for both from Home Depot before tax is applied.

Then of course your whatever your paint will cost. smile.gif

However, I'm a family man with a kid who commutes 3 hours a day, so while I would like to custome paint my rig, "there's never enough hours in the day." Especially when I'd rather spend my free time playing games with my kid and watching movies with the missus than painting. So please, no wisecracking about how plain it looks, I already know that! I'm just thrilled with the function and proud to be a fellow owner! The other reason I wanted to post pics is I haven't seen many set-up's like mine with A) Cooler Master 4-in-3 units, B) tri-SLI set-up's, and C) the bottom hard drive rack removed. I don't have that many internal drives (I prefer to use an external eSATA hard drive dock), and I bought the Cooler Master 4-in-3 hard drive unit with cooling fan for my two internal drives (which I can add two more), so I removed the lower hard drive for maximum air flow from the front intake fan. That offers better cooling of the NB/SB (it's very difficult to keep a NB/SB cool with a tri-SLI set-up and 8GB of RAM). Attachment 129358Attachment 129359


Again, congrats on all of the awesome custom jobs. I wish I had more time to do so, but such is life!

Thanks for the help mate.. appreciate it..

Ill tell you exactly what i want to do..

When i say paint my case.. first of all i mean only the inside... and the inside on the 922 as you may know is bare metal.... do i have tp do any sanding and things for bare metal.... are there any steps i need to skip?

When you answer... answer me as if i know 0% about painting cases... because i feel people always give information as if the person they are giving it to knows certain things
