    Hi this is my first real project!

    Im from sweden and im not so good on english but I think you understand me.

    My idea is to rebuild the front then paint inside and outside the case and set grating in the front.
    and also move the 3.5 to fit in 5.25 whit a 92mm fan blowing on my hdds.

    well look at the pics and give me some criticism

    I dident know so mush about painting so I was so dumb and remove the paint and my father told me that now I have to paint whit a "groundpaint"(dont know how to say):
    before I can paint whit the real paint. (dont know how to say):

    this is the grating I will use, it´s hard to get a good pic of it

    Lookin good so far. You know you can get a mount for your hard drive that fits in the 5.25 bay? If you decide to stay with what you have, you might want to make a custom piece that has a fan grill in it. You also have all kinds of space to put in more fans there too. Keep workin on it man, I am usin the same type of case. Lookin good so far. :dremel:

    yeee I have bean thinking alot about how to fix the hdds.
    i know ther is a 5.25<3.5 konverter but i dont like them, im thinking of making a hdd-rack that fits perfectly under my CD´s and make room for a 120mm fan blowing on my hdds.

    I will make a own fangrill when the time is right.

    thx for the replys

    today I will go to my neighbour and make som glowfeet to the case.

    I'll be watching this project as you're doing the same idea as i wish to use for a Chieftec Matrix. For the middle i would suggest mesh.
