owh, sorry mate, didn't made build log
but, i'll try to explain it here..
the principle is same as how to mount fan on the side panel..the panel is made from acrylic glass, same as side panel material, cut in same width as front grill/mash but little bit shorter on top to put in the controller/dvdwriter..
initial draft i made, front panel is made from cardboard, as in photo below..but cardboard seems to have gritty edges when cut though for fan hole..
same method, but replace cardboard with acrylic glass and you got this:
no screw holes in acrylic panel opposed to the cardboard because fan mounted with glue, not screw..
fan can be mounted in various ways : screw, superglue..on my panel, i used UHU glue because don't want it to be permanent, in case wanted to change it to other fan..to mount modded panel to front frame, i made some kind of..hinges/holder??..i dont what you call it..long rectangular shape, from styrofoam, glue it to the frame, to hold the top half of the panel like this:
bottom half hold/glued to original frame, top half glued to that rectangular-styrofoam..
and, middle bottom front frame need to be cut (that crosshair design), so that bottom fan could fit in nicely
so, there you go, new front panel with dual-fan configuration
i hope got it clear in this short-explaination, and sorry for any bad grammar Edited by poyyiee - 1/4/12 at 12:34am
