I'm sure you haven't stuck a game in that DVD drive yet just to see how it goes

Good luck with the build

Subbed.

Sweet project!!!

As for the WCUK missing tubing, the "packer" (Rob*'s mum) is very ill apparently and so he had to get in some extra help from people and so the flaws are still being ironed out

Anyway, rep+ for spending so much

Well rob apparently packed my box up himself, he says it was in there, I know it isn't.
Just seems a little pointless and untill I get it my build will take longer or get put on hold.

But anyways cheers for the Rep+

Well ironicly it hasn't even been cut yet, the top tfc wont fit in the roof as the motherboard is in the way, just about to set off to scan to swap it for a Aqua Computer Slim 360.

Hopefully the fans wont need to kick in still...
Some pics will be uploaded when I get back.

Well, been kinda busy today, at 11 o c'lock realised my TFC x-changer 360 wouldnt fit in the roof so then had to get a new radiator, then picked up some of the nuts and bolts for various parts throughout, Cut the radiator grill slot and made the fillport holes...

Also true to modding style managed to nick the side of the case with the file... anybody know how to even it out/re-color it?

Anyways piccyyysss...

The target must be this?...


Before Pulling It To Shreds


Nice big work area


The new roof radiator


The old roof air cooling system


New bolts + nuts for the radgrill and bottom radiator fan mounts.


Stripped out and marked up for cutting


After cutting the roof, even though picking up a thin smoother cutting blade a woodworking blade on a jigsaw works best...


Now to start on the fill port holes, we started with a small drill bit and work our way upto a 16mm bit, after this we pulled the dremel out and started to try and sand it down... Only to see smoke and a flash as the dremel died


So we then started to use a B****** file (very coarse file)... after about a hour it was done (with complimentary mark on the side of the case.)

TIP: BUY/USE A HOLE SAW...

EDIT: Just got a e-mail off WatercoolingUK saying that the missing tubing will be/has been sent on on the 28th.

Its going to be very difficulty to get the colour right, as it is anodised ratehr than painted. Only thing I can think of is to touch it up with a black permanant marker
Still, some of the more hardened modders may have a better pro-tip
