Also, Still Figuring out What type to Scheme i Want for the Wires. All Red, Red/Black in groups or 1 for 1. Once I get that step done, i'll Re-Update
Let me Know what ya'll think. Eventually I'm getting rid of the H100 and doing a 280mm Up Top. smile.gif IF Anyone needs the Drive Cages, Please let me know before i toss them. I'll send em to ya if you pay shipping, I dont' need Em.







DUDE!!!! That's looking super sweet biggrin.gif Are those bay covers from the 600T?

And are you just doing a pull-intake or a push-exhaust?

This looks sweet man welcome biggrin.gif

got a really good deal on a 650d, so starting my build.

Will hopefully have it finished by black friday

Specs:
3570k
z77 mobo ( need to decide on color scheme )
850W AX Corsair PSU ( i know its overkill, but im getting it for the same price as a 650w)
650d
16gb color coordinated corsair ram
500gb hard drive from existing comp
128gb m4 / intel / samsung 830
gtx 670/7970


So far, i just have the case and the psu, I've already started doing some mods:

removed bays, fans, hot swap bay, bought dremel to cut out the mesh, and going to buy cm megaflow
Will also be doing a stealth drive mod, and some other minor cosmetic mods.

I could use some input on what i think will be the hardest part of this project.


Covering up the hot swap bay hole.
Thinking of doing it with acrylic, but there doesn't seem to be a good guide on how to do it, and it seems quite difficult

Any recommendations for covering up the hole / guide for installing arcylic?

Thank you, and hopefully the build goes well.

Anyway, i already bought 2.5 to 3.5 to 5.25 adapters

but i was thinking of velcroing the ssd to the back of the case to free up 1 5.25 bay for future uses


would this be a problem for the ssd? any heat problems?


Thanks

No, it will not impact the performance of the SSD at all. As for covering the hot swap bay, I think you could just stick a piece of acrylic on with double sided tape or epoxy.

I filled the hot swap bay with acrylic, and it was a royal pain (because I used rubber molding and not just glueing it up there). Took almost 2 hours of messing with it before it sat right. The rubber that came with it was a thicker than I anticipated so it wasn't cooperating at the right angle bends, and it doesn't look like it really belongs there, but I still think it came out ok

First you need to cut off the tabs that hold up the hot swap assembly

yea it does seem a bit frustrating to get right.

I've decided to just remove the door from the hotswap bay and just double side tape that on to fill up the hole, and it'll look like it belongs while also getting rid of the space that the bay took up.


question: How would i safely/aesthetically go on about cutting the case wires i don't need? E.g. firewire / audio etc

Is there any way to put a Reservoir there or something like that because that would look awesome.

The front panel comes apart pretty easily with some screws and some clips. From there you can remove the wires you won't use and then reassemble it



I removed them all, and used the dremel to clear enough space to mount the switches for my cathodes



Also had to modify the openings on the front of the case for the switches to peek through

Thought about putting a res there but I have a tube res so it wouldn't have looked right. If there is a bay style res that is the right dimensions that would look awesome.

boo yeah, removed firewire and both of the audio inputs
kept the usb ports

only thing that went wrong is that most of the clips broke off, not a big issue, but boy are they filmsy as hell.


Anyway instead of what you did, i'm going to get 2 small round led switches ( 1 for lower intake and 1 for upper exhaust ) and put it where the audio inputs were before

anyone got any recommendations for small round led switches?
Is what i'm thinking too difficult to even bother with?

thinking of using something like this: http://www.oznium.com/molex


smile.gif, everythings going better than expected, hopefully i'll have my case fully modded by the time i order the parts smile.gif
