Little update;

Dremel time

First I take of all mesh panels from plastic masks and cut unnecessary plastic parts



I finally leveled the plastic strips and made some additional cuts.



Tomorrow I will cover some holes with metal sheets and fiberglass carkit.

After a little thinking and looking at the case I decided to use a little bit Dremel on plastic masks.



I cut all unnessesarly parts on front mask and this is it about cuting plastic masks.

The order has been clogged some holes that are spoil the look ...



After use carkit with glass fiber things are not exactly beautiful to watch. : D



Little sanding and magic happens...



Unfortunately some of the holes are not filled good enought and need another hand of kit that has already dried ....

After two days of cuting plastic masks, todays turn is cuting chase.

After cuting mbo tray i decides cut metal sheet to cover some unneded holes for fans and the one on front where is hdd, and 5. 25" bay.



I decide where to put hdd wood case.

MC 690 is a small case, but still... not sure if a couple of 120mm intake fans will be enough. You will need decent vents at the back and top so the hot air can get out easily. But air flow will still be an issue. Or are you planing to use som external watercooling or something like that?

No, I ll use air cooling and I hope that two 120mm fans and one in psu, one in cpu cooler would be just enought.

Small update

First I want show you motherboard tray and the holes that i cut

First I was thinking to put hdd in a wood case but after some thinkig mesuring and some staff I decide to create some fensy hdd holders.

I use 5mm alu panel for holders. Between hdd and alu holder i put 1cm alu bar with drilled hole for screw.



After cuting and drilling i decide to polish alu holders. well its not perfect but will be beter after tomorow tretman. D

Have to agree with the lads I'm afraid. Have a look in my log and you'll see that I've removed the door fans but replaced them in the bottom of the case so the air flow is maintained. I suppose if you're not over clocking it shouldn't be to bad.Good luck I hope it works.

New update with some delay

So, the last time I stopped I was cuting some parts for hdd holder. Now it all together and make a whole, to see how it looks. I drilled holes through which will establish the strong connection betwen hdd holders and case.
I ll put 92mm fan in front of hdds. In metal panel before fan I ll cut some logo or something fansy to secure cold air for hdds.



I cut some metal piece for fan, and now i can connect fan and case with two srews.



While i cuting parts for hdd holder i cut case fets and stick some rubber to kill eventual vibrations.



I ll paint case feets in white.

First I drill holes for hdd mount to see how its look.



I am still in dilema, Drill 12cm hole in front of vent for hdds or cut some fensy logo or something like that. :S

I mount case fets to see how its look like.



Finaly I drill one 12cm hole for fan who will provide cold air for rest of case.

Next i decide to cut some hole for fan who will provide airflow for hdds.



Thats all for today, next update is scheduled for tomorrow.
