    Holding off the final profiling of the corners until i have some pumps in.

    Brightens up an otherwise ordinary pump top....wishing for a drill press too i think,would of made the hole drilling much easier than the trusty 18v cordless...

    Yao can fit a 360mm rad in the bottom, but it would depend on how thick it was as to how many you could fit.

    I managed to fit 1 360x60mm in the bottom with fans on both side for push/pull, but that didn't leave room for much more.

    If you got rid of the supports for the midplate and made some new ones you would find it easier to fit them in the bottom, because otherwise you have to fit all the fans bar one if you go push/pull and jiggle it in and then fit the final fan.



    As for the log I will keep a eye on this :thumb:

    Sorry about the wait,I have been waiting for forever for my sheet metal bender.

    Thankfully it arrived today so i got on with the shrouds and rad mounts

    Lower bay has been cleared of all the excess junk so i can get to work.

    In the bay.

    The PSU end of the shroud will be detailed with a plexi window to show off the PSU

    You can see the midplate is in,the pump mount is cut and ready to fit and the first of the rad mounts in the lower bay is done.
    I will be getting the rad mount on the other side finished and the shroud for the drive bays done.

    Once all the metal work has been done then i will move on to finishing the paint work.

    And the other side.

    Cant do one side and not the other,this is a double sided case design so it has to look good front and back.And for the other side...

    So wait... both pairs of fans are blowing into the lower compartment :eyebrow:... But hey,You know what your doing :thumb: so I'll happily sit here and watch for the reason of this in the further modding :dremel:

    I'm afraid I must ask this too. Didn't think of it before now.
