alright, pics are uploading.

there are too many for one update, so it will be split into two parts.

The second part is FAR better than the first. ;-)

You do some great work Kevin. I especially like the bottom radiator mod. There is just something about the front that doesnt match. It looks good by itself, but as a whole it kind of clashes with the bottom of the case. If the bottom intake grill was round it would work. Have you thought of making a fan bracket, then a one piece rectangular mesh grill. Then top and bottom would match.

as I mentioned earlier, I had some distastes for how the stock cable management holes in this case come, so naturally I must do something about that.

first I need to figure out where all my tubing will pass through:



want it to line up nice and straight:



and the tube from the (wait, is that it? yes! it really does exist!) res into the bottom compartment:



also marked out a new location for the GPU power cables (all six of them) and the two holes for the screws that mount the part made in the last update:



drilled a pilot hole and moved on to this:



nice and round:





all the holes drilled:



busting out the modder's best friend:



I forgot how easy it is to overcut with a dremel... not to bad though.



not as gross as it looks, I swear:



I evidently didn't snap any pics after sanding it smooth, but you will see more in a few minutes, stay tuned for the good part.

now for the good stuff.

Whats that? a fresh sheet of Aluminum?



set up to cut off the part I need:



actually used the whole length:



got all my cuts marked (some cut) and pilot holes drilled (layout should look familiar):



step bit to 5/8" :



and another:



drilled rounds into the corners so it would be nice and clean:



busted out the snake for maximum control.





ready to test my steady hands:



cut inward a little at first just to get it clear:



then trimmed it back to flush with the holes:



and an hour of edge sanding later:



as always I went over the edges with black sharpie, it really makes a huge difference in how clean the cuts look(so yea, it is like cheating ).:



and set in place real quick:



I was amazed at how well everything lined up, all the screw holes matched up perfect and the edges where spot on, no extra room:



back to drilling into the case. had to add mount holes for the bottom panel assembly:



the forward one:



drilled:



x2:



set in place (not screwed in yet):



it is pretty tricky getting this in there, it is a very tight fit:





getting everything screwed in:







got the bottom ones in too:





the underside of the new floor isn't as pretty, but no one will ever see it once this is all together:



put the PSU plate back on with those nice screws:



lookin sexxxy (in computer terms at least):



it all lines up nice and smooth now that it is mounted:





the new floor pulls down nice and tight against the old one, looks like the old one is just a nice piece of red trim:





and thats what I have for today.

whatcha think?
