ALL COPY AND PASTED TO SHOW PROGRESS SO FAR Hi there.. No one will probably remember me as I neglected this forum after completing my project log a long while ago http://forums.bit-tech.net/showthread.php?t=105024 I love the look of it and it was a blast to build but every time I want to hook up with some mates for a mini LAN party I have to lug this huge steel full tower Therefore I want to play it at the other end of the scale a build a Matx form factor gaming rig The spec of my blue baby may not be top notch but it runs all my fav games well enough so my plan is to fit as much as possible of it into my new cube case that is going to be delivered tomorrow. Spec: OCZ Modstream 520w Gigabyte GA_965P_DS3 Intel Core2Duo e6300 1.8ghz (stable at 3.1Ghz) OCZ XTC 1GB (2x512) DDR2 PC2-6400 Western Digital 250GB Sata2 (16mb cache) Gainward Bliss GeForce 7900GS PCIe Hopefully I will only have to replace the mobo and CPU cooler as I doubt my Tuniq 120mm tower is going to fit. Anyway I will upload pics of the case tomorrow cheers! ~~~~~ Ok the case has arrived I won't bore you with lots of pics of a case you have all seen 1337 times! Next thing to do is find out if I can mod my new case to get the Tuniq to fit ~~~~~ DUUUST Used an air compressor (with a moisture remover) to blow all the crap off before installing most of the parts into the new case. Old ATX and new mATX S-series mobos The section that had to be cut to fit the Tuniq heatsink Had to cut around 7mm off of the copper base as the caps prevented from sitting flat as I had to mount the cooler slightly offset to avoid the PSU, also wet-n-dried the base to a smoother finish for better thermal contact Sexy blue thumb screws, need to order more though for now all the cables have just been thrown in as there is no point organising them untill my cable braid arrives wednesday The installation of the Tuniq prevented me from using the HDD rack so for now im using a 5.25" bay and the floppy bay untill I hack the chassis a bit more ~~~~~ I collected my parcel of a few A.C. Ryan parts and decided to fit them right away, I also managed to sort the HDD issue.. woop! I really like the look of these, I have a 120mm for the rear and a 80mm for the front (soon to be two up front) The only part of the fans that dissapointed me really might add a switch in here later quickly nibbled out the majority of the stupid restrictive hex mesh, will cut it out properly later I simply mounted the drives the opposite way around (PCB facing out) so the connectors were at the top and drilled new mounting holes to set them further back, still need to sort out the ends of my braiding though. Taking this case further The front Bezel comes apart very easily and I now plan to mod this a little so my case isn't so generic removed the good-for-nothing handle and I will use filler to fill the sides of the old handle recess Other plans for the front include removing all of the front connectivity apart from the power button (getting an illuminated Bulgin) and the USBs, also going to add a lot more ventilation in the form of mesh so my dual 80mm front fans will have something to suck through MODS!! please move this to the project log section, it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks. ~~~~~ I don't really need to write much for this post, all the pictures speak for themselves but feel free to ask any questions filled the recess so there was an even platform to work on (even if most of this was removed later) 3 pilot holes 3 holes with the holesaw in the bench drill The filler seems to be holding this bezle together lol aluminium pipe (75mm) a small amount of filler just to hold them in place for now a custom aluminium plate will sit behind the three intakes to mount the three 80mm fans. Yes this will probably be noisy but im getting a fan controller and I love the look of it reminds me of one of those external mounted engine blowers hahaaa 4" UV cathodes, 3 meters of 'U' channel, 10 UV blue cable ties, green illuminated switch, body filler and some arctic silver 5. all of the above was from Kustompcs apart from the filler which was from Motorworld, costing £5 going away next week so expect some updates the week after that!
