Coolermaster 340 Mod

post #1 of 42
Thread Starter 
I've yet to give this a name XD but anyway i thought i would post this here, i wasn't going to be decided to do so! anyways.....i'm going to get right to what is going on, the front is being changed, i'm pulling it out, recutting a new front mesh out and sanding the sides off (you will understand this when it's done!) I'm also adding a blowhole side window, and complete repaint, i'm going for the min but sleek design. based off of p4storm (old mod but still needs finished! lol) so onto the pictures!





Safety! it's a big thing to me, nearly lost an eye once upon a time!



I had to make sure there was enough room to take the new mesh,



that silver lip was all filed off in the end, and this is how i got the template XD



Great idea right? yes sort off but take a looky,



and the corners bent, in my crazy "bending" machine



also got to give it a slight bend to each side,



Nice one now onto the fitting...





Hehe works! got to get the blowhole sorted!

This...



just happens to be the same size as this...



Why am i using it? well the black tube is slightly oval hench the use of the light lol



Marked, and cut



and test fittings

And on with the update...



thats that cut! onto the metal...



That didnt work XD instead it just smelt bad so onto the dremel!



and this is going to help me with my new plate!







once fitted.....





Clean right? thats the idea anyway,

Side panel time!



Also for anyone who wonders the best way to cut around a corner with a dremel, tilt it! and use those small cutting disks, works a treat,



And one finished side panel (to an extent of course)



So what do you all think please be kind! not going major on this just want a nice decent small tidy rig (which might i add im going to clock to F XD)

Thanks for reading!

Thanks chaps colour choice is slim at the moment, i'm "thinking" of pearl white for the interia and a mix of 2 different colours of gun metal grey with black or silver, undecided yet!

Ah it's been a while since updating this...alot has happened in regards to personal family matters but now that is slightly over i've started on my mods again, more so it's been hours of sanding and filling...







4 bludy times i had to refill and sand this bad boy! because of all the work i've been doing (whoo big pay check! ) it took me a full week to finish this process...

Anyhow moving on i had a fag break (damit i started smoking again after 4.5 years i carried on with the sanding and got down to the spraying

Glossy glory!



After doing the almighty sanding again, i decided to do something different this time, instead o sanding the colour coat with 800 grit i moved on upto 1500 grit, now some people might think this is a bad idea but it worked a treat and left no lines! plus my finish was smooth each time, if a little "matt" looking,





Colour choice just came to me when i matched these two together, the case is going to be the gun metal grey, the inside is going to be pearl white! cannot wait to move onto getting the case done, i now have the shower room as my new "spray den" what with its built in extractor fan it works a treat best of all....no bugs!

Thoughts? suggestions? i take critisim aswell...just hope i dont find out where you live

Thanks for reading!
