HiC Zok - looking better. If you used the case to draw a template that matches the raised metal rounded edges of the fan mounts it's look even better.

So for elegance, silence and dust-proof, is there anything that comes close to the R4?

I love this idea.thumb.gif Like someone suggested before, I think it would look a lot better with some matte plexi, but it looks fine as is. You should have the mounts placed somewhere near the center so you don't see them.. so it looks like it's floating, kinda like the Nanoxia Deep Silence 1:

So many cool idead :d

What about white led strips inside around the plexi ?
I have white led stripes but I have not idea how and in what place to connect em. any help ?


I had some trouble screwing the top plexi from inside the case. I had to remove the motherboard and dvdrom for that and I still couldnt fit a screwdriver in because of hdd case. Don't make me remove it now tongue.gif

Looks like I'm fabricating a bracket this weekend biggrin.gif I have some black angle steel-frames lying around......

I will post my progress!

Please do. I'm extremely interested to see this.

Follow-up for those paying attention to the vertical pci-slot fan mount idea. These are the current options I've found.

Of these, the Tweakmonster single 120mm bracket looks like the best solution, but it's out of production and nobody seems to have any for sale. I'll have to find a source for someone who can make these...

My R4 weekend update!
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

My super-tidy test bed. No one ever accused me of being organized. lachen.gif


Near-Future To Do List:
  • Wait PATIENTLY for my shiny new Seasonic Platinum 660 to come in (Shell Shocker = $90 shipped with rebate. wheee.gif)
  • Measure the following
    • exact distances between PSU and components (mobo, CPU, storage drives, etc.)
    • Measure exact distances between SATA plugs and two drives mounted behind mobo
    • Measure exact distances between SATA plugs & both 5.25 bays and PSU to both 5.25 bays
  • Verify method of removing mounting bracket for top HDD cage on the bottom of 5.25 bay cage (I suspect it's inside the 5.25 bay itself)
  • Draw up solution to single 120mm fan mount to vertical PCI slot
  • Acquire WD Scorpio Blue WD10JPVT drive (lets me put 1x 256GB SSD and 1x 1TB 2.5" quiet HDD behind motherboard)
  • Acquire custom cables from modDIY for PSU and SATA cables
    • Sleeve in black and blue, black and grey, or solid black
    • Use measurements from above to get cables in the right lengths to best route and secure cables for minimum visibility
  • Per this suggestion, reroute the front panel leads to run behind the motherboard instead of behind the motherboard tray to reduce their visibility
    • Consider sleeving the front panel leads


Past this, I start buying watercooling gear one component at a time. Rads first, then, Apogee Driver 2, then Swiftech Komodo GPU block, then tubage and fittings, then finally fans. Since watercooling this will be a very expensive proposition, it will be a pretty drawn out process. Evidently I ought to be paying bills and buying food before I just dump another grand into 'puter stuff. rolleyes.gif
