Thanks Bruce. From you that's quite a complement!

I've got four things pending as next steps.

1) Mask and paint accents on the interior. This will involve disassembling again. After that dries, I clearcoat it and assemble it for the final time. biggrin.gif

2) Planning the front side panel window. I'll be posting some ideas about that shortly. Still trying to figure out exactly where I'm going with that. Too many options and I have to plan around the existing 80mm fan hole.

3) Planning the back side panel bumpout for wire management. Still working on sizes for that. Going to use a cake pan for that based on inspiration from Matt AKA waffles3680 top panel mod:

4) Front bay control panel. I need to decide where I'm putting that. Had intended lower bay. But may move it to the upper bay instead. I've got the power and reset buttons ordered from Performance-PCs.



After I get the side panels modded, then comes the exterior paint job. I may have to rethink the color scheme used, based on how elaborate the side panel is, to avoid making the case "too busy".

Stay tuned!

This is coming along nicely. Seems to have captured quite a bit of interest as well. Good going

Alright guys, I need your advice now.

What do you think of these possible window mods?




D2, E2, and F2 are duplicates of D1, E1, and F1 but include a clear 120mm fan.

Would a 92mm fan be better with less obstruction? Or do I really need a side fan at all?

And thanks for the continued feedback and interest. Much appreciated.

I like C and F1, but I would not be confident about getting the parallel cuts right - which would make it look cruddy.

C rotated 180* would hide the drive bay a bit and show off the GPU. If you are good with a jigsaw I say that one. If not, D1

I would go D1 or E1 to Show off your Hardware the best. I wouldn't put a fan in the window, I've learnt from my 300R that although it's good for cooling, it ruins the aesthetic thumb.gif

It depends on what GPU(s) you will use. If you are crossfiring 290's on air for example, you will need a side intake directly on the them to keep them cool. For a single GPU or if everythings going under water, I wouldn't bother. Just a nice big window. I'd prolly go for E1 with a smaller radius in the corners.
