    As I have unboxing this fans, I can tell you that the quality is really impressive, and the look will fit so perfectly with my project !!

    The next update will probably be on the integration of these USV14 on the front of the case, this work take me a lot of time ;)

    Hello guys, thanks a lot for yours kind comments,

    It's time for a little :

    UPdate !! This is how I fix the USV14 fans on the front of the case

    I decided to reuse the existants holes :
    [​IMG]

    je suis parti d'une plaque de plexi de 50x25cm que j'ai recoupé sur la largeur
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    some drilling
    [​IMG]

    and bending
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    after, I need to cut the place for the frontpanel
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    and I bended the other side
    [​IMG]

    to fix this plate, I use some M4 screws
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    when the plate is inside the case
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    then, the cuts for the 2 fans
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    and this is the finished part !
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    with fans mounted
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    and, again some pictures inside the case
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    That's all for the front of the case !!

    Next update, will probably be on the ingregation of the PSU or the MB tray !

    Stunning work. Just, stunning. I absolutely love working with acrylic now it's one of my favourite pastimes.

    I remember the days where all you had was perspex and it used to shatter and crack all the time /mumble grumble aspirin and piss.

    Are you going to paint the fans silver or grey?

    Wow! Very nice!
    A humble suggestion: The ultra sleek fans are a real beauty and I think they deserve more pictures, just twenty or thirty more to begin (Hint: also some with sandy beach, palm trees and gals on the background will be a marvel. Sweating gals better...)

    You're like the master of jigsaw. Seriously, how do you make your sawing look so clean? Whenever I use my jigsaw it results in marvelous cracks, dents and scratches despite of any taken measures against such and regardless of used material. Aaargh. Good work, man.

    Thanks for your kinds words, I know perfectly what you say about cracking !!
    It's a good idea to paint the fans in silver, I hadn't thought of. So Maybe !

    :lol: and thanks a lot too !!

    :blush: when I use my jigsaw, I use a little speed (I have 6 differents speed, and I use the number 2) and my blade is small to let me do the curve as well as I can.

    The latest pictures don't show the result just after the jigsaw's cuts, after all the cuts needs to be sand (P80-120-240-500)

    See you soon !! :dremel:

    Hi here !

    Just a short message to talk about The Laser Hive, a company of laser cutting who create for example some kit to integrate motherboards inside Powermac cases (G4, G5, etc !)

    David Chugg is a passionnate too of PowerMac 'cases modifications, and he spend a lot of time to help me realise my idea for this project.

    It's time for an Update !!

    This is how I mount inside the case my PSU Seasonic P-760 Hybrid :thumb:

    Here too, I started thinking on this part first on AutoCAD to have a little idea of where I'm going !

    [​IMG]

    first bend
    [​IMG]

    and another
    [​IMG]

    and again
    [​IMG]

    and the last one
    [​IMG]

    then some cuts
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    to finally get this part
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    I also cut a little an aluminum frame for my PSU to make it look like her big sisters :D

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Once the psu is mounted on her support
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    and inside the case
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    That's it !

    Hope you like it and please feel free to comment !
