Update #8 - 13/04/2010
Bring on the ultimate in modder's fashion, the make-you-look-totally-badass MNPCTech Safety Goggles!
These things were annoying me.
So i cut them off.
My rad stand arrived from WCUK. Test position in the case.
Bought some blue masking tape and taped off the motherboard.
Taped off the floor of the TJ07. Then i taped my table. And my tv. And my dog. I love blue tape
Put the rad on the stand to get the positioning right so it doesn't hit the ends.
Changed the rad for some fans to get the spacing in the other direction.
Used a sharpie to mark the holes.
Removed the midplate to get access with the drill for the holes. One thing i love about the TJ07 is the lack of rivets. It means i can take the case apart to separate pieces in about 5 minutes.
Used this spring-loaded punch to make a locator for the drill bit.
I also took the feet off in preparation for the new ones and also so i didn't drill into them when making holes in the case.
After drilling the holes for the stand I tapped the holes for the feet to m4.
Lovely MNPCTech feet! Thanks Bill!
The anodizing is amazing. Suites the build right down to the ground (pun intended!)
Countersunk the holes for the rad stand.
Rad stand fitted.
Reassembled the case.
Got the motherboard to mark out where i need holes in the mobo tray.
Finished marking up, then it got dark so i packed away.
Just time to show off the MNPCTech rad grill though! This thing is so cool! The insides of grills rotate to whatever direction you want.
I am pleased to announce two new sponsors, Earlsmann and Caseking.de! Earlsmann have sent me an EL panel to use in the project. This is a thin sheet (as thin as a piece of paper) that lights up evenly and gentle. You can see more here: http://www.earlsmann.co.uk/sections/product/id/10
CaseKing are sending me a Black Ice GTS 360 radiator and some white tubing. http://www.caseking.de/shop/catalog/
Another update tomorrow!
