2) Photonmoo built a panel that covers her HDD bay. I was wondering what the panel is made out of and how it is attached.
When taking a closer look at the pics of his first cover atleast it seems like it just sits there

3) I saw a couple of members with the dual memory fans and I really like the idea of having one over my RAM and was wondering if it would fit over RAM with the extra high heatsink (similar to the corsair dominator HS).

4) Has anyone ever used a panel like this to connect their accessories?

If so, how big is it relative to the case?

That is all the questions I have for now. I love what you guys have done and I look forward to showing you guys (and gals) what I come up with!

Thanks!
1:The fake floor can be found here
2hotonmoo is a he, his wife is in his avatar, but i belive he has attached it with zipties, if not that'd work

3: The Corsair memory fan atleaast is made for the Corsar Dominator and Dominator GT memory sticks and has taken the tall heatsinks in too the calculation

4: I haven't personaly but someone else might've

Just put a piece of electrical tape over the top of it.

1. I think Surfer used a press to make that bend but another way is if you use a piece of plywood and put it on a raise tough surface and C clamp both sides of the wood covered on top of the sheet metal close to the edge then slowly start your bend in the center and work your way out to the edges with a rubber hammer until you get your 90 degree angle. Don't get in a hurry. You can do it by hand but do it slow and gentle. or use some plex and a hand torch and melt your bend in it.

2. most of our panel covers are made of the packing material that comes with the case. That black soft thin foam. Or you can use plexiglass Thin cut to fit. Paint the back of the perspex or plexi with semi gloss black or any other color you find fasinating.
By the way that is Photonmoos wifey. Ain't she sweet.

I cut off the 4-pin (molex) connector for my rear fan and soldered on and heatshrunk some header pins from a dead motherboard. Then plugged them into a 4-pin floppy power connector, like this;

Attachment 138106

This makes it nice because I can go with 12v or 5v for the fan for heat/noise requirements and I was able to remove a lead from my power supply by not having to use one 4-pin (molex) connector just for that fan.

I think you lost the punch line Treacherous, there's nothing wrong with a blue ray drive, other than the fact I don't have one yet.

Hello everyone, I was wondering how to remove the hard drive cage. I have a dremel and a drill that I can use if I need to drill out rivets or something. I would hope it has screws though, so I can put it back in if I need to. Also, would my hard drive get too hot if there was no fan by it?

In addition, I want to remove one of the tool-less drive bay locking mechanisms so my fan controller can be secured with screws.

I'm going to cut some holes for cable management too. Any tips/tricks would be nice.

Help would be greatly appreciated, I'm hoping to get this mod done this weekend.
