post #19741 of 22477
@XNine and I had talked before about how to make the screw post for the Caselabs hex nut system to secure windows and accessories before and so far (besides using a laser shop to laser weld the thing) I did not come up with a good solution. I now have it and prepared a brief tutorial on how to do it here:

it works great.

No one really makes them for designated chassis. There are tutorials around on how to make them, if I'm not mistaken. Problem is, you're still going to have to drill holes into it for your own build to route tubing.
He can have one made by Martmamods/Stempel-Houser:

(Use Google Translate to read the page in English)
Or, possibly by Ricardo at ColdZero, I had a lovely TJ07 "sLight" made for my TJ07 build from him.

Thanks a bunch, don't know what I'll do yet..... Decisions, Decisions.

Made a little progress on my S5, "Diva Edition"

Now I can't wait until the full window top gets here to really maximize the light and open look.:








I had a slight change of mind regarding how much flex bay space to try to keep available, and at some point I'll need to get a new front panel, as I cut the right side slightly lower than I wish I had. . . . . doh.gif

I also re-drill the holes in the mobo support rail a quarter inch lower so that I can use standoffs between the rail and the mobo tray, which also then makes the rail the same height as the mid-chassis, so that it's easy to add a full-width midplate.

I ordered a roll of addressable, side emitting LED strip to try some new ideas for a fairly thin lightbox midplate, so as soon as that's here, I can flesh out the midplate idea.

Hope you like the new front window look,

Darlene

I love the new front window look,Darlene!thumb.gif

The full window top will look great with that, imo.

New front panels are readily available, so go with that if you must.
The lightbox will look great, based on your previous builds, lol.

A Rep+to you, madame, for this latest S5 build.cheers.gif

I know it's very late to this comment. I'm been thinking of grabbing it, Since I really want to hid my PSU and I need room for two more Harddrives(3.5). Is it really worth grabbing?

So today was "work on the S8S day" . . .

The S8S was the build I had originally came up with the front window mod for, as I wanted to show off the tandem heat exchangers it will have mounted transversely, being as it's going to be a hybrid chiller build with only a single 360 rad.

As it turns out, I think the S8S is absolutely the most aesthetically pleasing of the CL lineup. I'm super glad I got it, after not being all that thrilled with my S8 looking so much like a giant "Jack in the Box".

Although once the S5 gets the full window top, it'll be a real toss-up, they both just look really unique for what you usually see the Mercury series looking like

Anyway, I added the front window mod to the S8S, and cut the acrylic and frame rails for the midplate.

Have to polish the aluminum frame pieces and attach them to the chassis, but it's all cut and fitted, and have to repaint the edges of the front chassis pieces that were left bare from cutting the window spaces.

Now I'm really getting anxious for the rest of m CL orders to come . . . . some more white accent parts for this S5 and my white and black S5 . . .





As you can see with the S5, the big window takes away the power/reset switches and front panel USB/audio,

But fortunately, the CL flex bay to 3.5" adapter and the Silverstone front USB kit, (in CL white) lets me relocate everything to a flex bay, and the smaller vandal switches just squeeze in perfectly on either side so the power/reset buttons & lights are still in front.












Hope you guys like the CL S series, Diva Editions,


Darlene
