Some of you know that i had a plan to install a dual stealth radiator on the top of my cm690. I planned it out and came across a few issues but worked through them and i end result is this.
I cut the plastic area first that was blocking my radiator

Then i cut the metal mesh grill on the top, took a few blades.


Today i cut out the area where the radiator would sit

This is how it would sort of look like

I filed down the edges to give a bit more room for the radiator fans

The holes i drilled for the zip ties


End product and i found that i did not need the zipties at all


I had to make some last minute adjustments with the plastic on the top panel and currently the radiator is sitting slanted but right now i am just exhausted and my body is aching. Thank you all for looking and thank you Juggalo and others who have helped.

those weird jaggies are from cutting the fan grills, i still have to make some minor adjustments so the rad sits flat but i will do that probably tomorrow or thursday.

totally random question, but what camera do people use on OC.net to take photos? they always come out in such good quality, and the focus is squarely on whats in front, looks wel good

I used my brother's Canon EOS digital rebel XTI he doesn't like it when i use it for these build logs because i turn it off and on a lot because i dont want to use up the batter, also it's not good to do that with these professional cameras.

I need to get stronger blades because the ones that came with my dremel are not good for cutting metal they like to snap into pieces or shrink smaller than a skittle even when i let the blade do the work and not force it.

i see, so people who show pictures have professional cameras. How much do these cameras cost? just wondering if people buy expensive cameras purely to take pics of thier computers etc

I don't know if all members who make these build logs use professional or expensive cameras i was just telling you what i was using. If you want detail and excellent picture quality then you will need a really good camera, my bro bought the XTI for around $400 but if you want to buy the same camera buy the black model it is the professional one, don't buy the silver one.

I wouldn't necessarily say that. I used my LG Shine 2MP camera phone because that's all I can afford. It takes pictures, people get the idea, that's all I need. When my mod is one, I take it to a pro lan party or a friend's house and get pictures done there.

OT: Very clean mod. I like it. It's almost like it blends in and belongs there. +1!
