Contagion - My 922 Haf Mod - Page 13

post #121 of 168
Funny that we're discussing an old ultra-kaze now... one of mine died yesterday... now my triple rad runs on two fans only. Crossing fingers it'll be fine through the Chimp Challange biggrin.gif

After-wards I'll see if I can fix it, if not I can definitely give you the shroud and/or fan free if you pay shipping smile.gif

I didn't think of enclosing it as I know nothing about the cooler and if the pump needs airflow. Up to this point I've only air-cooled. I was trying to find out about voiding the cooler's warranty before I did anything to it.


Sure did but my build is a long build working on all the points I can til I get a few more cabinets to tie into it. biggrin.gif

I'm considering Emailing CM to see if I can't hit them up for a couple RMA chassis, but I need a quality rendering to show them my idea and give me a reasonable shot at them.

Heck I'd even be willing to accept donation cases at this point. I have a place in mind to help me get it structurally sound as well. There is a Body Shop about 45 minutes away that I think would be able to handle the work. Pretty sure they do powder coating as well so I can get everything done at one location. I'm gonna do the bulk of the work but anything I'm not comfortable with or don't have the equipment I have to farm out.

Here is my build log in case you haven't seen it. I thought you had though. biggrin.gif

Welcome to the Darkside cool.gif

As far as your pump goes you can build a cover for it. It doesn't require air around the pump to work properly. The only air that is required is by the Radiator. wink.gif

I am using a DVD player that I pulled from my previous rig. I put it in the drive bay and I could see silver.

sundaymorning005.jpg


So I decided I needed to paint the DVD case at least black so it would not stand out in the case.

sundaymorning006.jpg


Disassembled the dvd drive.

sundaymorning007.jpg


Brought it to my paint area, taped it and scuffed it up.

sundaymorning008.jpg


Laid down a primer,

sundaymorning009.jpg


Backside needed to be done, I used the same primer on the plastic as I did for the metal.

sundaymorning012.jpg


I used light coats as I did not want to screw something so easy up.

sundaymorning014.jpg


Gave it a nice little wet sanding.

sundaymorning015.jpg


All dry ready for some paint.

sundaymorning016.jpg


Painted a few coats

sundaymorning019.jpg


Then gave it a light clear coat.

sundaymorning021.jpg


Onto the screws. I did not have any black screws on hand that would replace the current thread, so of course they need some color.

sundaymorning027.jpg


Painted and cleared.

sundaymorning029.jpg


Let it dry overnight before working on the inside.

sundaymorning032.jpg


Now it is time to wire for the Eject button. I want to make this a stealth drive, and Doing that I needed to move the button to a different location.

So I grabbed together what I needed for parts.

Tuesday011-1.jpg


Moved the board out of the way.

Tuesday012.jpg


Drilled out my two holes I needed to run the wires to the back.

Tuesday014.jpg


You can see the holes on the right side. The one in the back is easier to see, and straight above that is the one to the button location.

Tuesday013-1.jpg


You can see how I ran the wires up.

Tuesday016.jpg


This is where it will come out the back.

Tuesday017.jpg


The wires will be connected to the board here.

Tuesday015-1.jpg


All soldered up.

Tuesday021.jpg


Attached to my button that I painted earlier and decided not to use. But I will be using it for this now.

Tuesday022.jpg


Open.

Tuesday023.jpg


Close.

My next update will have the stealth drive done, and DVD player installed.

Hope you enjoyed. smile.gif

This is where I left off. I needed to install the eject button somewhere.

Tuesday022.jpg


So I found the center on the faceplate, and cut out a hole. I had to also give the back locking nut a coat of black paint as it would have shown the silver through the faceplate,

Sunday009.jpg


The button installed.

Sunday010-1.jpg


I placed it under the DVD player for easy accessibility.

Sunday034.jpg


Here you can see where I need to stealth the DVD player, It looks like such an eyesore with the rest of the build. Cooler Master could probably make a few bucks if they sold an option to stealth your drive.

Sunday036.jpg


I pulled out a few tools to see what I was going to cut it with. Nothing would work as easy as I thought, maybe if I had a nice set of tin snips it would've been used. but back to old faithful.

Sunday037.jpg


Busted out the rotary tool and cut off the edge of the drive insert.

Sunday038.jpg


Here is a side view (the one in the middle) of what is left of the drive insert. You can see the new thickness.

Sunday040.jpg


Next I needed to figure out how to attached it.

Sunday042.jpg


I tried some self adhesive black foam but it would fit correctly with the full piece.

Sunday043.jpg


I missed a few steps here, but I'll tell you what I did. I took the original screen material and cut out where the DVD player drive would come out. Then I used some adhesive to stick it the mesh. You can see in the pic where this spot is. I tried then to add some adhesives to the foam backing I put on the drive faceplate. The adhesive gave it an off white once it dried, so don't try this at home, waste of time. I removed the long strip of foam you see there and cleaned it back up. Now what I did that worked much better was,

Sunday052.jpg


I cut off two small pieces of double sided tape and positioned them onto the DVD drawer faceplate, about one inch in from the sides to avoid the curve of the mesh. I did not want it to stick out at all. The piece of screen that I cut out earlier I used again to give a darker look so you could not see the drawer. Everything stuck together perfect, this is the easiest way to connect the drawer I had tried.

Tuesdayam004.jpg


Here it is all done and installed.

Sunday055.jpg


You can see it here attached.

Sunday056.jpg


Here we go to test it again to make sure all the connections are still good, and the faceplate is good and tight.

Sunday058.jpg


And she opens.

Sunday059.jpg


Here is a side view of the tray (I actually got lucky, the drawer was already black and I did not have to remove it to paint).

Sunday060.jpg


A view of the side now that I am done with the DVD player. A few more things to go and Ill be done. I will make my deadline smile.gif

Hope you all enjoyed and if you have any comments or questions please let me know.

Love the stealth drive. But I'm not 100% convinced about the yellow border to the rear exhaust fan, makes it look a bit too boxey imo.

But hell, either way its an epic build.

Awesome job, its all the little details you have done that really add up to a great mod.

I know this was already solved through a steady hand and patience, but I will put it out there anyway so that hopefully it will prove useful another time.

The best way to paint depressed frown.gif lettering or anything recessed is a "wash", what model makers use to highlight panel lines and other recessed detail. Basically you thin your paint to where it will flow through capillary action, then you dip the brush in the extremely thin mixture, let it absorb into the brush, then just touch the brush to the recessed detail, it will flow out and fill up the recessed area. Have a rag handy to just wipe off any that doesnt make it in the detail (so thin it cleans up without any work). Once it dries and the thinner evaporates, all you are left with is the paint, perfectly even all the way around because just like any fluid, it is self leveling.
