Black or White (MM H2Go case Mod

post #1 of 44
Thread Starter 
Aight guys well it was well over due for me to get a new case after my crappy Apevia was blowing up from the seems and was a poor constructed case over all. This will be my first mod on this site and hopefully i dont disappoint anyone.
What i ended up getting was a Mountain Mods H2go (aprox 17x12x12) and i have to say this is one beautiful case. Now i did have a little problems with MM for the simple fact that i was trying to get another set of 5.25 slots put in where the front lower fan was sitting. Basically i was going to have 6 5.25 bay drives instead of the standard 3. well after talking to them i found out that this orig priced H2go case ($189) was going to start @ $350 because of this mod.I thought that was extremely over priced but it is what it is. So i figured ill do it myself and save a butt load of cash. I ended up getting the standard brush aluminum case.

So basically what im going to do is:
Insert new window on top of case
insert new window on the front R/H side of case
Insert window on the Front L/H side of case
all new fans
Paint this thing Black and White
and of course a butt load of wire management to a case that doesnt have any

Well after looking over the H2go Case and already knowing the wire management was going to be difficult i figure i was going to Fabricate a bracket of some sort to hide the main psu wire bundle from the case. Figured some type of L-Bracket since the HD and fan was covering one side and the other will be covered from the psu itself, and also cut a whole that would allow any cables to come out to the rest of the system.
I also will be cutting a 5.25 bay cover to accomidate a temp sensor panel for my wc rig
All and all this might take all day

Where i hope to fit the bracket to hide wires and temp bracket

using the piece i cut for one of the widows out

the tools, for u guys that dont know the sandpaper is call aluminum oxide sand paper. This stuff is amazing for aluminum. with very little pressure u can sand down gouges and nicks u might have made to get a baby soft edge with little easy. But make sure u use mask of some sort. Works better than and dremel or file that i know of to get those out. Not really sure where to get it in the real world cause i get it from work(avionics)
[IMG][/IMG]
here is the temp sensor and 5.25 cover i plan on modding alittle
