Thank you Christodagr.

I like to believe we are all talented. It just takes the right motivation, the right... trigger... to find one's inner modder.

For me, it was the Lian Li.

Be sure to post lots of pictures.


I snuck home for a long lunch today and worked on the PSU issue. Quicky shot with flash:



Quite a bit left to do there; I'm going to re-tap the M3 bolt holes for M4's to cover that mis-alignment there in the top corner, and need to tidy the edges up... but hey, it's up and running, and no fires!

I need to head back in to work now. Hopefully I'll have more later tonight.

Thanks naf! I really like it. I think its going to really shine with the other Xiggy's and the orange tubing.

Well, I got the PSU the case tonight. That was far more work than I would have thought. I knew the new bolts were going to give me some clearance issues, but it proved to be quite a chore to squeeze that bugger in there. After a metric ton of filing, test fitting, failing, filing some more, test fitting, failing, etc. etc... I finally got it in there.

First, I fashioned the final trim panel for the underside of the pump tray:





Then I expanded the ventilation for the PSU fan:



Made some notches and filed a bit to allow for the modified PSU to slide into place:



This is the shot from earlier, of the modified PSU outside the case:



Here's a shot from the rear with the new M4 mounting hardware:



Th underneath angle has a nice bit of brushed aluminum showing now, instead of a random bit of fan hole and the mismatched factory smoked nickel finish of the Ultra. (I still need to tap out those M3's showing to take M4 hardware):



And from inside, with a shot of the business end of the final interior trim piece for the pump tray cover:



It seems like I'm robbing a lot of the fans airflow, but I figure that's about 60% of it free air, and that has to be a significantly higher amount of open area than the roughly twelve 3/4" holes that it had previously.

In other (good) news: Fed Ex seems to have re-located my Danger Den order, so that's back on the schedule for delivery tomorrow. Tubing and fittings are incoming.

In other (bad) news: I'm working for pretty much the next 48 hours straight.

Gotta love them government jobs.

Well, with 2 inches of the PSU hanging out the back of the case, part of the fan is blocked where it passes through.

Before I crafted the new cover, part of the fan was actually taking in air from outside, where the PSU extension is open on the bottom. I sealed that up.

I figure it will be fine though. It's a bigger fan than Ultra had in there factory, and it has much more open air than the original Lian Li chassis had. There was a grid of 3/4" holes there before, but I cut them out.
