Yes, a 120mm holesaw will make the best cut. A rotozip with a hole cutting attachment will aslo do.
well what i do know, is that my dad has a pillardrill holder thing for his powerdrill so keeping it straight shouldnt be a problem.
As for removing the lid he said to drill the rivits, this is safe to do with all the hardware in place isnt it? id rather not have to pull everything out :|
Pull the hardware out. Even one little metal shaving from drilling a rivet could fry your system. I wouldnt go near my case to mod it without pulling everything out of it. Or you can try and be really careful and hope you didnt let any metal shavings get loose and get stuck somewhere. But personally I would take everything out before cutting or drilling.
hprcrazyguy how did ya stick the fan at the case?
suction method? glue?
very nice mod....
BTW love ur mod...what color is it?
Thanks I used double sized foam tape stuff. Sticks real nice to flat surfaces. The color is Rustoleum Metallics Bright Blue Metallic. I used about 5 cans and didnt even finish my one side panel. Thats ok though since I have my hard drive zip tied to the side of the case anyways.
the lan li has a mobo tray so i can slide that out and the drives will take 5 mins to take out.
Best thing about the lan li is the way you can take bits in and out so easy
Yeah, thats what is nice about motherboard trays, just unhook cables and slide it out.
allthought looking at the case i dont think anything could make it inside, the vibration would be a bitch.
Any suggestions for reattachment after? im not a DIY minded person
oh....man cool double tape u have there........hehe cant find one thats so strong......
ops my fingers stuck at the case.....
will try to find the "Rustoleum Metallics Bright Blue Metallic" color....
oh well, i went down to do it all.....sorry focus(stupid name).
but biggest holesaw they had was 40mm amateurs eh?.
Anyone know where i can pick up a 120mm one? or failing that a 90mm or an 80mm
i did a search but nearest was either 114mm or 127mm, GRRR!
114 will be fine since if you measure the actual opening that the blades are in it is only like 117 or something like that I think. When I did my 80mm blowholes I think I used a 76mm holesaw, it doesnt take up any (or very little) air flow at all. Kinda helps make it cleaner to since you can see srtaight down through the fan and not see the fan housing, well except for the little things that hold the motor. So that 117 would be fine, the 127 would be too big though, if I remeber correctly.
thanks m8, will add one of them to the shopping list
looked at screwfix direct (i know im not old enough to be reading that lol)
anyways they have a 117m and im told that is fine anyway. Will order one when i get a chance.
Since my last work ive added some switches to my cathodes while i save for a baybus, but ive also added some asaka blue led flashy fan things in the front, i'll try and cap an avi with my digicam but cant get the light right to see it .
Will post pics here when i sort it
You can get 120mm Holesaws... I have one. I got mine at Home Depot... cost me 24 bucks US, but I wouldn't mount a 120 to the outside view without it. Careful though, too much pressure and it will grab and break your arm... light easy pressure evenly distributed... level that is.
