post #1101 of 1629
looks really nice ,great job there.

keep up the good work!

Also,just a personal opinion,but i don't really like those protective grills.I think that a flat one would look better.

But that is just a personal preference.

Nice work. I think it might have looked a little cleaner if you bent the edges of the sheet metal 90 degrees at the edges. It would probably be hard to do without access to a sheet metal brake though.

Personal preference of course (considering I'm fussy enough to replace all the mesh in my case with solid sheets of finer stuff!)
that is a good idea. I will look into this...

Personally i live the all mesh front of mine (aka stock) - but thats personal opinion.

Do you have any other fan grills - the stock ones stick out alot - see if you can make something like a smaller version of the cover for the 140mm fan - that carved aluminium effect. - it would look GREAT - would mean more aluminum usage tohugh
Those grills are not stock. I bought them a while back... they also match the ones i have on the top rad now.

and I probably will do something for the 140mm fan now that i think about it.

Thanks!

the fan grills look more curved than they are in the pics. they are pretty flat. I will be sure to get some better pics when i get it mounted right.

thanks!

Ideally I would have a brake and a drill press and a hole saw and all those fancy tools i envy others for, but I do not have the money or the room while I am at school.

Although i feel i am doing pretty well with what I have.

Bro, that last update was awesome. You did a heck of a job with the cuts and measurements and all. Wish I had the area and tools to try out my own stuff like that. This update just makes me want to see the finished product even more.

Looks really good.

If you needed a brake, you should just pop down to your schools maintenance department. I bet they've got one around somewhere and since it has no moving parts, they may not have liability issues of you using it. Also, many universities have smaller separate "fabrication" departments for each major department and you may find more accommodating people there than in general maintenance.

i ment how the stock grill for the lian li is that square of machined aluminium wit the logo on it etc - make some 120mm versons of that.

i think it would look alot better.....

thanks!

I have talked to the guys at the machine shop here and they said it was a no go.

Hmm, the issue there is I would need some sort of CNC cutter or i would have to find the exact hole size mesh, and i don't think either of those things are gonna happen...

I like the idea though.
