Oh ok I thought you had decided to go rawdog!! lol I was thinking man I feel sorry for who ever got to dust that thing out... skull.gif
post #6175 of 18197
hehehe! Nah, one of the reasons I chose the 600t was for the dust filters after having a nightmare time with my old Casecom case. I have an open fire here and that causes huge amounts of dust mad.gif The fans i reused had to be cleaned with Isopropyl alcohol and i ordered the side filter way in advance wink.gif

Good call Im thinking about getting a demci soon becuase I want some extra air flow on my gpu... It's a great case enjoy thumb.gif

Unfortunately, the stock 200mm corsair fans barely move any air through the decimflex and the NON-honeycomb mesh of the side panels.

I put my stock 200mm fans in my GFs Half 912 and got 6 gentle typhoons, 2 for the top, 4 for the side, and a 200mm Bitfenix Spectre Pro for the front.

Thanks for the info, I'll look into replacing the stock 200mm fans next with the Bitfenix Spectre you mention at the front and I'll have to think on what configuration to go with for the side coolsmiley02.gif

But I am replacing my GPU block this weekend and there's a good chance I'll sell this machine (ebay?) next week so I can start from scratch now that I have more knowledge of the process.
Out of curiosity, about what would this design of yours cost?
EDIT: And it would be even better if it could cover my hideous cold cathode along the top.

If you want to give it a go yourself, I'd be more than happy to share ideas. Basically there are a few things you ABSOLUTELY NEED:

- Plexi (obviously -- I got mine from estreetplastic, but there are probably many other retailers)
- Cutting implements (bandsaw/jigsaw/hacksaw, a plexi scorer or dremel)
- Heat gun
- clamps

First thing I did was measure everything two or three times so I had a good grasp on what I needed to happen. This included practicing bending the plexiglas too (I'll get to that later). Also, I should note that you shouldn't measure your depth from the side of the case, measure it from the inside of the two rivets along the bottom inside the case. The insert sits against that nicely, and with in inside that centimeter or so farther allows you to put your door on!

Cut it down to its basic size. For this step I used the bandsaw, but I think using the scoring and breaking technique would give you cleaner edges. Then you have to make the center cut so you can bend the PSU side independently from the drive bay side. That I would still use a saw of some sort...if you tried to score I have a feeling it would snap clear through.

Once you have the shape with the cut in the center, the next step is to bend it, but I need to explain the measuring of this part a little bit. Plexi doesn't bend at right angles, so you have to account the curvature into your measurement. For the 1/8" plexi I used, I found that for a 90 degree bend, I got an extra 3/16" in length. I'm not sure if this holds for all varieties, so test it on a scrap piece that you have from the initial cutting. When you're doing your measurements, you have to take this into account--if you don't you'll end up having to cut that side down while it is bent, which would not be nearly as easy.

Note: IT'S PROBABLY A GOOD IDEA TO HAVE WORK GLOVES WHEN YOU HEAT THE PLEXI!!

That out of the way, the bending part is fairly straight forward. Mark where you want to bend and then clamp the plexi over the edge of a sturdy surface, with the edge of the surface lined up with there you want it to bend. Also, what I found helped was to clamp a piece of wood on top of the plexi to keep it from bowing above the bend. Also, if you can, clamp directly at the bottom of the center cut to help prevent any breaking along there. It's fairly sturdy, but that is clearly the weak point of the piece. Once you have it all clamped down, apply even heat over the bend line and apply light pressure. Keep applying heat until you have it bent to where you want. Once you have it at the right angle, hold both sides in position for a minute or two so it can cool to a point where its not going to rebound a little.

That's your basic unit. All that is left after that is to cut out things like the notch for the front fan and the PCIE bays. I found that in order to get it to fit inside the case a little bit, it needed to get inside the lip. I had to cut down the dimensions a little bit left to right and a bit from the top, and round the side-facing corners (using a grinding bit on the dremel). Since its a little shorter than ideal, I found an easy solution was to put the insert in , and then from the back, prop it up on another thin strip of 1/8" plexi that runs along the length of the insert. It allows it to "lock" into place, and it makes it MUCH easier to take in and out. I'll see about making a video for putting it in. I had a few scary moments trying to get the sucker in the first couple times with components in there, but I have a system down now that avoids banging it into my mobo/cpu cooler.

If you have any questions or need clarification, feel free to PM.

Corsair replaced my top 200mm fan due to a constant grinding noise from the bearing. Very awesome, really easy, $0, and I didn't have to ship back the bad fan. GG!
