TBH the rads add more noise than the fan grills. You only really notice the noise if you have really high powered fans, which kev doesn't.

The grill takes up more space than just the screw holes. The through holes are where the tubes go through the case to the rad back into the case (although I guess he won't be using those since the barbs will be on the inside of the case by the fillport)



See the four empty holes on the edges of the grill - the edges are quite far from the fan holes themselves.

Ah yes i see your point. First rad grill i have seen that does that, didn't notice it before. The fillport still looks like it might just clear. You could work it out, kevin, by using photoshop or some other program to work out the pixel to mm ratio. You know the distance between the fan screws so you can then work out the distance off the end.

yea, I'll probably do that at some point.

I may order some of these first to see if my cuts are good enough to look good with just them:

yea, I was considering asking you too, but I don't really want acrylic on the outside of the case...

I told you some of my plans to use it inside the case in PM, but I want to keep it all black anodized aluminum outside.


If I were to change my mind on that, is there any way you could mill out the back of the acrylic so that those mesh things I linked would fit under it smoothly?

I marked it out with a scale and compass then went at it with an electric jigsaw

Kevin what i could do is make the grill out of two pieces of 5mm glued together. The inside piece would just be an outline so it raises the top piece up for the mesh grills to fit into. I could then use a router to roundover the edges and polish the two edges up.
