CORE 1000 FRONT BEZEL DUAL 120MM TURBINE MOD IN PROGRESS

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

TheBasicIdea.jpg

This is basically the conceptual idea for this Core 1000 front bezel mod project. The stock appearance will be totally transformed. There will be (2) turbine fans and for a stealth-look, the top optical bay will be a slot-load dvd. There will be a laser-cut, 1/4" thick black acrylic (opaque) for the face-plate that will be attached to the front bezel. In between the turbine fans, there will be a 16mm vandal on/off switch to power the front fans. The top fan will cool the single hard-drive that will be installed in the bottom optical drive bay. The slot-load tray that will be installed in the top optical drive bay will house the slot-load dvd drive and while installed, up to (4) SSD's can be installed.

GuttinandCuttin.jpg

Everything on the front bezel was removed (2nd optical bay cover will be removed later) and then I had to cut out the plastic grill since it's originally part of the bezel.

MockupEvaluation1.jpg

This is the 1st mock-up evaluation. I had temporarily installed the slot-load tray and attached the bezel on the case so I can take the necessary dimensions. I had used the dimensions to draft out an electronic sketch for an acrylic laser cutting company to fabricate the acrylic face-plate.

CustomLaserCutFace-Plate.jpg

The 1/4" thick, black acrylic (opaque) face-plate was delivered with the cut pieces in place just as it appears in the image. All the openings were cut perfectly, based on the sketch I had provided.

MockupEvaluation2.jpg

This is the 2nd mock-up evaluation. All openings are perfectly cut and placed. As stated earlier, there will be a 16mm vandel on/off switch centered between the turbine fans. It will also power the fans. Underneath the bezel you can clearly see that I need to do some more cutting so the (2) turbine fans can be used appropriately.

 


I'll be back with more updates thumb.gif

 

Awesome work man, looks amazing :D

Has anyone changed the feet on a Midi? I'm worried because the rear feet are smaller because of the fan filter rail.

How many HDD's will you be using? A mate of mine just drilled a few holes to the bottom of the case and stacked 5.25" to 3.5" cages on top of each other. You should have just enough room to fit 2 of these (for example) and still have a 5.25" bay in case you need one.

Regarding your case I like either silver or black but if you prefer the stealth look, black is always better thumb.gif

Looks specool.gif .....Are you using a see-thru side panel? If so, have you considered using white fans on the cpu cooler to extend the black & white theme?

Anyways, an update of my case: The polished ring never grew on me, and I realized that it goes against the grain of having a stealthy looking case (what I think of as a "Fractal" type case)......so I painted it black. I really like the look of the front now. It fits more with the style of the case. Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

I´m using no sidepanel in the Moment... smile.gif

And I´ve thought on changing the fans on the cpu cooler but as a Student my budget is quite low :/
Also I don´t know any white fans, which could beat the Silent wings... And I don´t think it is worth the investement to go with the AF series with white rings. Because the color difference is not that extreme.
Any suggestions?
