800D Re-Build Log (320-MCR + 220-MCR in the bottom) 56k death - Page 7

post #61 of 90
A dremel and I could perform any mod that he has done to this case, a jig-saw, high quality hole saw and sheet metal cutters would also help.

Therefore, before buying the case, I'd like to know what kind of power tools I would need too.
Thanks
PS: Your build looks great!

Thanks for the kind words! I used a jigsaw, hand file, and a drill to punch the holes to start the saw. Beyond that, a T-square and combination square, screw drivers, I used a 1" hole saw for the tube that goes through behind the hotswap bay, but otherwise all the holes were done with the jigsaw. My dremel is about 20 yrs old, and I'm lacking a number of bits for it, so I went with the jigsaw whenever possible, though I know most of the new dremel bits do quite well with this sort of work. Feel free to post here or PM with any of the mod questions you may have, I'd be happy to help get you going on your mod! If I were to get into casemodding more frequently I'd consider investing in a metal-cutting 4.25" hole saw to punch 120mm holes, but at $40 it was steep for only a few holes. I also used some metal shears to snip out the hex grating up top.

Just caught this build. I saw you posted on the kids forum with his 15 hours of work. Man, you logged a TON of hours with this. I can only imagine how much time, effort, and money you put into this man. I hope you hang onto this for a long time. Never sell it. Just put it in a trophy case. LOL!

I certainly did, and loved every minute of it biggrin.gif I don't plan to get rid of it any time soon, it's a perpetual project, but the case and rad setup is able to handle any forseeable hardware so it's an 'investment' haha. And it is the trophy case! Thanks for looking and commenting!

Haha no problem, it's an amazing build! biggrin.gif Which y splitters do you mean? I have a T-line? Generally yes, a Y splits the flow evenly, however as with any splitter, T or Y, the downstream restriction can cause uneven flow if the back-pressures aren't matched. Flow and pressure are always going to stay even in ratio because fluid will naturally take the path of least resistance.

Howdy! This build is definitely a great one..It's the first one that i've seen where someone fitted anything larger than a 240 rad in the bottom section of an Obsidian without moving the psu out of the way! Well done! smile.gif

I see word gets around..lol! (thank you all for ur comments smile.gif ) I probably wasn't the first with the 480, and i am definitely not the last..smile.gif And i've got to hand it to ya Saltwater; you did beat me to it to put the bottom rad in that fashion. I wanted to do this when i started my build, but i just couldn't be bothered at the time. I think i mentioned it in my OP, when i started the log, but i dunno. Anyways, you are part of the buttkick.gif i needed to actually get it done, so; Thanks! biggrin.gif
