Just got my 830 and I'm jumping right into cutting it up

I'm gunna start by de-riveting the case, switching the top and bottom, drilling any holes that might be different and cutting cable management/radiator holes in the top and bottom

I can't stand the PSU being on top

Love this thing yo


Naked


Drilling out using 5/32 bit


All apart


Top swapped


Only a few simple holes to be drilled. The majority line up perfectly


Need to swap the plastic rails to the top piece


Consider painting the case black, I haven't decided yet


I spray with 20% acetone


and my best friend


Not sure if this will replace my 690 or just become another build. It's torn apart while the gd70 is in one of the office PCs for testing


Suggestions more than welcome


To be continued

After about 12 new holes and 50 rivets later, I've got it all back together

It's business time



Set the bottom on the top so I could mark where to drill the rail holes



All done with those



All together minus a couple rivets, but still naked



That's better



I decided I like the plain aluminum with the black, so for now, no paint

Sorry!

Next I'm gunna be cutting the top and bottoms for 360 radiators

Any news for this mod?
Looks good - and exactly the kind of detail i've been looking for for turning this case on it's head.
How long did it take?
