    Yo m8, That is a sweet fan mount.
    Making your own PSU box is defiantly cool.

    ..I can’t wait for next update

    What else do you have in store for this case.

    Im worried about that PSU; Plexiglass has never been a good conductor, and with the kinds of components you like to put into your PCs, thats just asking for trouble; Some bigger heatsinks and more airflow arent a bad idea.

    Your skills with lights and acryllic are sick man, just sick. I've seen your work alot of other places and you definitely have a very unique style that you bring to your mods. You could change your name, or alias, but your style of modding is unmistakeable. Keep on the good work.

    Guy!! overwhelmed buy the comment ,sheldog cheers mate means a heck a lot ty.

    your right gamer some of the holes arnt perfect but i could have just had them pre-drilled for a few bux...but wanted the end result to be more human..hands on.

    I left the earth out cause i wasnt 100% sure if i would still need to earth it...apparently it shouldnt be a prob...but i will just for the heck of it.


    roto, do you think? i added a 120 to that unit from its orig 80. that plex is 6mm its never going to melt or warp...and im yet to feel a PSU thats too hot to touch nowadays.

    Altho in my mods thinner plex has held up to 10k HDD's wich would leave a nasty burn if touched for too long.


    I dont see a difference in putting the guts of a psu into a plex box as putting a metal enclosed psu in a persrpex case?

    but! i did run it over night with 3 hdds hooked up a MPC 650 water pump and a set of 120's with a good old fashioned Delta HSC screemer with the set of 5 LEDs..

    its still going when i got home from work :)

    Id still increase the size of ventilation holes, and add beefier heatsinks to the PSU; the rule of thumb is the heavier it is the better :D

    The thing about putting it in a metal case is that metal gathers and sheds heat much better than perspex; plastic doesnt conduct heat very well, and inevitably, will only heat surrounding air. Perhaps you could make a custom waterblock that is attached to the PSU's heatsinks? Just make sure the water isnt over the electronics... ;)

    All I can say is wow, your bondo work is amazing. Your frosted plexy has given me loads of ideas for my next case. The home made PSU case is fantastic. Very good work!

    there are plexy cases readily available for PSU's

    as far as cooling goes for thyem im more of a fan of matched fans(80mm in, 80mm out), to be sure the air that goes in goes out. but the 120 with those holes shouldnt be too much of an issue, i wouldnt predict any issues with melting.

    Defyant style "Frost tubes"


    The next idea was just a "tiwst" in the defyant style flex leeeds, and will also have its wn light sorce for a glowy effect and is intergrated
    with the RCA type power plugs.





    the fan box is modded to fit a female RCA and wired to the 2 x 120mm front mega blowhole fans.

    next is ome expreimenting..... the idea is to fill the tube with sand....this will stop the plex tube from kinking flat when bending with heat.

    once the plex tube is bent the sand is emptied and your wires are passed thru.
