that sounds....... painful....

even just getting slag on my apron i can feel it burning through when i weld stuff (rarely and they look like crap. but like my boss tells me. who cares how they look as long as they are strong? you can always clean them up later.)

i have a couple ideas of how i can do this. and dont bother suggesting the 5.25inch bay converters as i have the "Cooling Duct" taking up the last 3 that i have left. (then optical drive up top and fan controller on the bottom)

so yea what if i made a cage that went along the top behind the drive bays? it wouldn't be too difficult and it should be easy enough to maby even just relocate the stock cage.

looks like ill be drilling out some rivets tonight

what do you guys think of this idea?

VOTE STRIKER36 FOR MARCH MOD OF THE MONTH AND HE WILL LOVE YOU LONG TIME!
Hey Striker. Why not just cut the bottom of the drive cage out. If you leave enough space for two drives, you should have space below for whatever water cooling equipment you need. I think this will look better than relocating the cage in front of the motherboard.

as of right now im just throwing ideas around. im not sure what if any thing ill do with it.

that was actually one other idea i had as well on my way home. but no one commented on it today so i moved on.

at this time im still in the brain storming phase and i dont have the money to go full WC any way (hence the H50) but im just planing for future ideas as well.



im uploading pictures!!! update in like 20 mins

well as you know i didnt quite finish the bezel last night so i planed to bring it back to work. but i didnt have time to really do any thing so i just grabbed my can of filler and a couple pieces of scrap aluminum for another thing i decided to do last minuet

so after a quick shower its time to work!



i cut a small rectangle from the alu plate and grabbed a sharpie and marked the contour of the hand hold on the bottom of the bezel




cut out another, and another (three total)


and a rectangle that fits between the braces.


laminate them all together!



after letting the 30 min epoxy tack up a little we epoxy it in the bezel


fill some small spots i wasn't happy with form the earlier refill


the epoxy tacked up enough to take the clamps off for a quick peak. i think it looks pretty good.
then the clamps go back on AND

DINNER TIME! wile we wait for stuff to dry some more


the exposed cutts were pretty rough (i knew that cutting them) so i clamped a block to the back to prevent the plated from separating(30 minuet epoxy drys in 30 minuets but dosen't set for 24 to 48 hours) and went at it with a file for a little while to clean it up

THEN the plates and the plastic still weren't quite at the same level so

i mixed up a bunch more filler and covered the bottom of the bezel with it.


that's all i have for now! i didn't use much hardener in the filler tonight so i would have more time to work with it so its not going to be ready for sanding till tomorrow morning. i might bring it up to work tomorrow and if i get some time to my self ill work on it some more.

as for the plan to stiffen the whole thing with some metal rods i was looking at the back and found that to do it properly i will need to cut some plastic stiffeners or do a bunch of bending. also after messing around with it some more i discovered that 90%+ of the actual flex is in the cross bars and not actually in the vertical sides. so i dont know if that particular mod is actually worth the time to do it. i still dont like the flexing so im going to try and think of a way to keep the mod alive but make it easier for me and less damaging to the bezel.

as always feel free to comment and suggest things or ask questions.

and VOTE FOR MOD OF THE MONTH! vote for me!

i wonder if i can steal some aluminum rod and some brazing rods today? i was thinking about the reinforcing idea and i think i know how to do it!

most (if not all) of the flexing in the bezel is coming from the cross supports and NOT the uprights so im thinking if i just make an "H" shape and a couple "|_|" shapes i can epoxy (read: use a whole tube of JB weld) them in crossing the back of the cross bars and turning to run along the side.

im planing on using a rather stiff and dense extruded aluminum rod for this so i dont need to worry about torsional flexing.

do you guys think it will work if i do it that way?

i know this probably isin't needed but why not if i can?

i like seeing comments and questions and stuff so feel free to ask them!
