Bead blasted, it is not has harsh as sand blasting but gets the chassis smooth.
lol, You should have got the silver rimmed one with the free PSU.
Was my idea for this case but I don't think I'll ever get round to it.
I used an 80mm fan on the front because a 120mm wouldn't fit because of the step in the case. The case is quite small but its big enough for what i want.
Looking really good so far. No worthwhile constructive criticism to add, just thought I'd drop some props :3.
Thanks for the comments. I should have an update to post up tonight.
I have been concentrating on getting the exhaust fans mounted onto the case. I will then make a grill to cover the fans.
Fans mounted onto the case
Plexi cut with dremel. I have cut the piece bigger than needed because i didn't want to mess it up and i will sand it down when i polish the edges.
Any comments and suggestions welcome.
planned an air flow chart yet
On the front panel, where the power and led indicators are, is a recessed section, that goes down and around the lower part of the facia (front panel), you could get some black plexi and template the shape, then bump out your buttons and led indicators or add some led housings say in chrome, this would compliment both the buttons , the blowhole and the extreme orange color, I quite like the color chosen, but its an extreme color that needs to be broken down by something, maybe that black plexi piece would do it.
