add some socket head bolts, aluminum spacers, diamondplate aluminum, a holesaw, and lots of sanding and buffing and you get something like this...

dont put too much on it. sometimes simple works best. when you add stuff make sure it fits well with the feel of the rest of the case, and dont go modding the lid all by itself.

Agreed. Awesome mod, just remember that you CAN overdo things. Not that you are at the moment, but I have seen it.....

Great work and congrats on the baby! AND the new super duper house of modding..... I mean suburban dwellings. :D

well the top lid is done. i will not do anymore to it, i dont want to over-do anything on this case. its going to go well with the other things i have for this case. just a hint, it will go right along the lines of the lid, just on smaller scale!

little bit of pics will do you well till next update!

what are those cones anyway? Dont tell me you stuck nosecones on 60mm fans :eek: And if the fans are bigger, that tiny little hole has to be restricting airflow.

no no no, you must not have seen the previous pictures and posts. :eek: they are mounted on 120mm fans behind modders mesh from www.mnpctech.com <------(blatent plug) hehe. after that, i mounted the diamonplate on risers so that the airflow is not being constricted at all. all the air can come out on the sides. also the big thing, is that the fans are not sucking in, but blowing out. the whole system sucks from the bottom to the top as convection happens.

rock and roll.

THIS IS AWSOME MAN, keep up the great work - Oh by the way what are the gauges monitoring and how or what have you connected these up to.

Beatiful work, and I applaud your patience and attention to detail. Two things that keep me from being any good at modding. Definately a thread I want to subscribe to.

I have really been enjoying your worklog. It occurs to me that you could close up that large opening at the rear of the case. Each commonly used connection (cable) on the back panel could be relocated with the use of short extention cables. The video/monitor connector just needs a male/female cable, same with the USB connection, mouse, kybd, and sound.

A small cluster of them could then be mounted, perhaps, at the bottom of the case in a nice, neat arrangement. The entire square back plate opening could then be closed up for a neater appearance (perhaps dark acrylic, or more mesh). The new back plate cover could be unscrewed and the 5 cables pulled loose for chassis removal.

One small additional mod to the above would be to mount a wireless kybd/mouse transmitter internally, eliminating two of the cables. USB could be front or side mounted, leaving just video and sound at the rear. Just my $.02 :) , and again, terrific mod, man.
