I was really happy with how it turned out
Tis update time again :clap: today's victim... the bottom panel.
For the 2 radiators to work as planned I needed to create some form of intake in the bottom part of the case, so simple hole was measured, cut, filed and then a quick once over with some 600 grit to take away the rough edges. You may notice that the screws have been also been countersunk, thanks to oldnewby for the pep talk on countersinking
Next I moved onto the feet placement.
These feet are awesome but the bolts Bill sent me were a tad to long... probably me just being stupid as I had a banging headache from the day/night before lol. Anyhow not to be out done I searched through my box of wonders and found some of the tap washers I was going to use for the hard drives so these were added to the bolts as spacers and to reduce vibrations even more
I still had a load of hex mesh that I got in the beginning but never really found a use for. Pruned to shape around the feet.
Bill also sent me some small M4 bolts with the grill but they were to short to be used in the way I'm mounting it so I'll be using them to mount the mesh instead.
Some measuring and drilling.
Parts of the mesh were then pruned out for the screws.
Thought I'd do something a bit different and show all the pieces that go into the bottom panel before it all goes back together.
The feet go on.
The M4 sockets are pushed though and taped in place to allow correct positioning of the mesh before adding a grommet but in half a nut. The grommets and nuts will be replaced with dome caps once I place my order for the final fixings.
Time to re-assemble the bottom section
And finally a couple of shots of the inside.
That's all I have for today, hope you enjoy it
