Been a long time lurker but I thought it was about time to participate actively. My subject is everyone's fav. The Lian Li PC V1000B. With the likes of Black Narciscus and all the other Li's out there implementing all the good ideas (just as I seem to think of them) I'm having a hard time trying to come up with alternate ones. Heck, for some things I won't. Here are the obligatory shots of the case stock (courtesy of Newegg). I saw a bezel on a case mod at MNPCTech but they weren't then available for resale. Getting frustrated and having no work area (living in an apartment at the time) or tools, I needed a mod made for me. Well. After working with Chris at Customwatercuts I finally came up with a design for the side of my Lian Li PC-V10000B case. This and this, along with quite a few drawings containing necessary measurements, is what I gave Chris to work with. I mocked these up using Adobe Illustrator (didn't know about sketchup at the time. Anyone that wants to do me a paid favor and mock these up?). Chris kept in contact with me at all times. Even when we kind of got sidetracked due to the holidays and my wife and I buying a new house so progress was slow but Making many changes and modifications we came up with the following. Front^^^ Back angle^^^ Another angled view^^^ And the final CAD drawing he sent me.^^^ After getting a quote I received my aluminum rings. Didn't turn out too bad. I'm pretty satisfied with the results. May try laser cutting for a future project for comparison. Anyways, here are some pics. ^^^ On the side panel which has yet to be cut to mount the rings and plexi. The rings need to be polished up. Gotta buy a dremel with a polishing wheel. Tried hand polishing and got fed up. Angled view of the rings.^^^ You can see where the water/abrasive kind of "marred" the surface on it's way out the other side while it was cutting. Polishing should clean that right up. 120mm Evercool blue LED fan test fitted to the fan bezel.^^^ 2 of these will be mountd on top of a piece of plexi to the top of the case. Lighted BLOWHOLES! My custom (made by me) 120mm & 92mm fan grills.^^^ Custom 80mm fan grill mounted in my Beantech enclosure. (.5tb!!)^^^ Closeup of the 120mm grill.^^^ The 92mm got mounted to my... ...XP90!^^^ How do you mount a 92mm Evercool blue LED fan to a Thermalright XP90? (Note the 120mm mounted to a Tweakmonster "fan holder".) THIS is how.^^^ I took a 92mm fan I ripped from a dead PSU and clipped the fan elements from the frame. I attached that to the LED fan which made it possible to mount it to the XP90. When I had some (rare) free time I decided to cut and mount the case window after buying a dremel. Turned out alright but my dremel skills need work. The rough (very rough) opening needs filing to get even but overall not bad. Side panel masked off, holes marked off and drilling commenced.^^^ Window/fan bezel ready for test fit.^^^ Hole cut and bezels mounted to case.^^^ Close-up. Note the rough cut of the hole.^^^ Couldn't wait a day for the hole cutter attachment that I could've used. I didn't plan it but the rings in the center seem suspended in mid air. Even closer-up close up. Rings need polishing BAD!^^^ Wide shot (can you tell I used to work in video?).^^^ I plan on using the "dials" from a Coolermaster Musketeer to mount to the case panel when I get more free time. The opposite panel will get rings of it's own but will be installed totally different. The problem with this case is that the side where you would see the window on a mormal case is now just dead space. Not on MY case. Possibly I can get this done later this weekend if I budget my time correctly. Dual 120mm blowholes get installed in the top when I can make sure the holes can get cut perfectly. Add black mirrored plexi and it should be bangin'. More later.
