Update 10 - Faceplate Mounted


This took a bit longer than i anticipated because i needed to tap my own bolts. Enjoy the update.

First i needed to trim the faceplate a bit because it was too long, so i set up a brake for the jigsaw.


I only have two hands so i couldnt take a photo whilst cutting

I then drilled the four top holes to be ready to get tapped.


Then i proceeded to tap them, i used M4x0.75 because this is the same as meccano


I needed some bolts (didnt have enough meccano) so i used some 4mm galvanised rod and chopped them up.



Then tapped them to be M4x0.75 thread on either end.


The top four bolts in the acrylic as a test.


I then did the bottom two holes (didnt do them all at once to ensure they all were in the right place). I did a test fit to make sure everything was in the right place.


I then drilled out the spacers.


And then finally mounted the faceplate.



I will be painting the spacers white most likely. Around the edges i am hoping to get some mesh so i can pull fresh air in through the front.

Update 11 - Case feet


I cahnged my mind about having acrylic case feet. I know acrylic lit up with blue LEDs would look much better i would have to go buy another sheet, and im not sure how well my hole saws would cut the acrylic, instead i will modify the stock case feet and paint them black (or blue).

Stock feet.


Chopped down with the angle grinder.


The whole assembly.


I'm very tired now so no more updates for today. Next step i think is to pull my radiator off my main pc and get the mounts set up for that in the case.

Very good job!!! Nice to know you got the tools at home to do the revamp project! I'm wonder if you're thinking of making the case cover something like NZXT Phantom's... or something futuristic.

It's currently 5am (or close to it) and i have not yet been to sleep. Once the shops open i will be getting myself a couple of the big cans of red bull and get stuck into cutting the side window and perhaps pulling my radiator out

Lets see how this progresses
