    as slug said, he is not drilling those holes himself. he is getting an out side company to drill it. they probably use a CNC drill.

    Back early from my trip, but feeling a bit under the weather so I'm not doing anything complicated until my attention span recovers.
    As predicted the water-cooling loop is extremely easy to remove as a single unit. Only involves removing 5 screws.

    I got the HR-05 installed and temporarily the CPU and video card will both be air-cooled while I get the BIOS flashed.

    The faceplates are ready to be finished

    The top and bottom pieces are sized

    And I added support teeth to square off and support the backplate when the tray is in the case.

    More to come this weekend.

    i think when this is finished this case will be up there with the greatest cases ever done.

    every step as been well thought. even if the res over the cpu idea was scraped it was a functioning mod. i loved it!

    i love this mod!

    Well, I was about to do more tonight but I ran out of scrollsaw blades. I'll have to go to Sears tomorrow.
    I've finished refining the motherboard tray already. I'm hoping to get the rest of the case parts machined over the course of this weekend.

    Things I would like to finish this weekend
    - Faceplates
    - PSU Tray
    - Top & Bottom panels
    - Side Panels
    - BIOS flash

    Things I have planned for next week
    - Handles
    - Dock Bracket
    - Side panel slide brackets
    - Windows

    Not an update: The BIOS is updated now, but I feel horrible so I'm just going to lay down until my massage appointment on Monday. I overworked most of my back and my feet while working on my brother's house last weekend.

    Tomorrow I have to put a barbeque together then go to Home Depot and pick up some scrollsaw blades, seeing as how that tool is invaluable for the remaining steps.
    My massage appointment earlier today has left me feeling quite awesome, which is something new to me and I want to take advantage of it.

    Some progress today. Yesterday the 120mm mesh filters came in the mail.
    [​IMG]
    Should I drop any screws off the motherboard they won't get wedged inbetween the fans and the radiator. There are silver filters on the intake side of the radiator.
    I also started working on the Power Supply bracket.

    The solvent has to cure overnight and then I can add the last few pieces to it.

    Are you going to have an easy way to take those fan filters off? I would want that to clean them outside or something.

    The filters on the intake side of the radiator are very easy to remove.

    Just screws. I don't have many thumbscrews left and those are going on the exterior panels.
    I won't have to clean the filters anymore often than every 8 months anyways. (I have a very clean AC system).
