We stay in a small town and they charge a lot of money for the most basic of stuff (for instance, I asked how much a service for a DSLR camera would cost - R350, or about 33 Quid/44 USD).

Sourcing it will also be a bit problematic. I don't mind though, as it gives me experience that I actually quite enjoy

My dad mentioned he paid about R1500 for a sheet of Perspex 100x100cm of 6mil thickness - so that is quite a bit over 100 Quid

Can't wait to see yours. I'm going to rough cut mine tonight when I get home, and tomorrow at work use a Dremel and trim it down to the correct size and also drill the holes

Oh man I feel for you! I can get a sheet of Arcylic sheet here 500mm x 500mm for about £8 which is plenty for a side panel window.

The fan was the most expensive part at £13!

Ok let me get the ball rolling on my project:

The Fan (What A Beast!)


The original window with 200mm paper template attached to lign up with the case


Fan Blu-Tac'd on to check position & Fit


Tomorrow - Draw around orignal as template and cut window from clear arcylic sheet. I held the fan in place for 10mins blue tac'd to original window to make sure it fit width wise and check temps. Mobo was a few C lower and so was CPU.

Watch this space for updates tomorrow

Cool! Can't wait...

I started on my panel tonight...using a jigsaw outside in the rain was not fun, but it's done. I rounded the edges and measured back and forth about 4 times. I now need to drill my holes, and then polish it. I started with some flatting paper (wet sandpaper) to remove the scratches, and used Brillo to buff it out. It's just taking very long. I'm going to take it with me to work tomorrow, and get some finer sandpaper (P1000+) so that I don't need to polish my arms out of their sockets.

Then I am going to test fit it, drill the holes and hopefully mount! Can't wait

Sweet! Was it easy to cut the window out?

Looking forward to doing mine tomorrow, fingers crossed the finished product will be worthwhile

I grafted for about 2 hours getting it rough-cut last night. Granted I was working outside at night in the rain, so my visibility was limited!

It did take a while to cut. My outline kept on washing/rubbing off with all the rain, so I had to redo my lines a lot. The cutting part was not too bad, but I had to use a variable-speed jigsaw - too fast and the perspex melts back together again, too slow and it starts gripping the perspex and threatens to crack it (DAHMIK).

I took about 5 minutes per side to cut, and then I used a bench grinder to trim the edges. Today I am going shopping for some fine sandpaper, and if work is quiet I will start polishing it. I was mistaken in my previous post - I am using Brillo instead of Brasso. Basically the same product, but Brillo is more of a paste than a liquid

Wow man, that's mad. I've also used Brasso on plasticy things when I was a kid, it dulled the colour outta them. Saying that, Perspex is a single layer of the same substance, but I woud've expected some dulling.

A better option would've been a buffing tool for a Drill or a Dremel, even the finest Glasspaper would surely leave it dulled compared to it's original state?
Hey EvoBeardy, sorry I never saw this post of yours, but to clarify - I have attached a picture of the product I use and the end results, so far. As you can see it is still scratched, but I have gone over the one side with Brillo. It may not look like it, but the one side is very smooth already. The other side I have yet to start with.

It doesn't dull it at all, thankfully. I know there are easier ways to do this project, but I am trying to keep costs down. That, and you can buy 5 x 600W jigsaws for the price of a Dremel in our country, so they are quite overpriced
