My vacation has started and didn't do anything on the case yet
I did practise some.

From the start i had the idea to make the fan/rad guard just like the S21T's little brother.




I'm already walking with that idea for 2 weeks now how to do that.
The case is 5mm thick, brushed and black anodized aluminium.
So i guess i can't restore the smallest scratch.
Today i just tried to make such a fan hole in a piece of 6mm thick aluminium.


First had to do some shopping again. (The dremel virus even got me before i started working with it)




piece of 6mm thick garbage measured out.




Still no idea how or what, but i've got to do it with these tools.




Forget about a dremel in 6mm alu :P so lets prepare for the jigsaw.




Only had a bad quality metalsaw, the woodsaw worked better :/






After sawing, the dremel works out fine.




Grinding the edges from the Bitspower radguard. (Starting to love the dremel )




Bending the edges a little more.




Tapped the radguard in it's place, in the case itself i will use kit / black glue to hold it in it's place even better.




Painted it black for the picture.
In this picture the guard needed a few more taps.




And this is how i want it .... X 3
Next time further on with how i will fasten the rads/fans.

I've followed the L3P D3SK with interest and follow this one too, to see what it becomes.

Thanks a lot guys!

Been busy yesterday with the mod-attic again (Wife's ... :P )




Also been thinking all day how to fix the radiators to the case on the inside without being able to see it on the outside.





Going to use Velcro around the radiators and going to support them with a few layers of 5mm thick rubbertape.

Wise doing a test run on some material rather than the expensive case looks like you got it spot on , nicely done I think I'd have to have a couple of beers to go cut the actual case .

What will you be doing about the silver edge the cutting will leave behind, I'd expect even if it's flush it will still show even if it's a faint line.

Edit, well you already painted the test piece so you could sand the edges so they are raw & you'll get to see if it's bad or not.

If it is bad then when everything is done you could mask everything up & then paint the edges.

You're the first who asks that about the silver edge Waynio, we also think the same about that beer
I was planning to sand it with different grit sizes so it will look brushed like the rest of the case.
After that im going to try to paint it with one of the 6 different kinds of black revell i bought.
I'm still nervous about the hole thing

haha you dont say so Its only now i realise how thich the case actual is

To cut a hole in a lian li case, or any others is no problem, but with this kinda thickness i would keep the dremel steady

GL, and i am sure you will do just great!

Just in case you didn't know but you probably do also make sure to use low tack masking tape & some good padding on the nice panel to prevent the jigsaw scuffing it up & it should stay in mint condition then it'd be a nightmare to muck this up .

Already fixed that from work a while ago, it's very "slippery" tape. Also going to tape the jigsaw itself

Update.

First of all the nice package from
www.highflow.nl
The footprint on the box did scare the **** out of me but nothing was damaged






Because i replaced the PSU fan, i needed another fan, also one to replace the fan blades




Going for Feser Red, liked the colour more. Also some Red Dye to make it darker.




Some extension cables from Cubitek




And ... a cpu lapping kit






Thanks for the nice discount Freddy, this wouldn't be possible without you!




Got me some new sawing blades for the 5mm aluminium.




And assembled the fans to the rads.




Finally could use the black M3 allen bolts.




Want to change this somehow




I think i'll use Bitspower mesh there too.




Fast sketch-up for the radiator placement




And the case almost completely disassembled.




Hope i'll ever get it working again :P




And taped it with extra smooth tape. (I'll cry if I'll scratch it :P )







Still need to think of something for it.




Blood red acrylic it'll be




Even Origen AE works with a black marker when they damage something




Back to the fanholes.
Pre-drilling first.
Don't mind the drill's brand






Also taped the jigsaw.




Ready to go.




And the first hole is there.




Two to go.




And the third!




Now finish the nice round edges.
Wanted to use the dremel, but got myself my file again, needs to be as straight as possible.




More tomorrow!
