    Hey guys! THis is my first post on this site and there's no better way to start than with a project of my own!

    The project will consist of a Silverstone TJ07 with an inverted ATX tray, custom side window and custom front panel. Aditionally there will be a controller completing the front panel. This is step one!

    Step two will be to watercool the Mobo, cpu and gpu and for that I'll be using supplies from EK, Bitspower and Termochill!

    Last but not least: Cable management and sleeving! This will be the last part of the project and will require a lot of patience and dedication! Will be sleeving all the cables inside the case individually and arrange them to the best of my abilities!

    Right now I have the case and the frontal panel will arrive monday! Once we get all the pieces together we can start cutting away to improve cable routing in the case!

    This is the list of hardware i'll be using in this project:

    Asus Rampage II Extreme
    Intel Core i7 920 D0
    G.Skill Trident PC3-16000 3x2GB
    Asus GTX480 1536MB GDDR5
    Creative X-fi Titanium PCI-E
    Intel X25M- G2 80GB SSD x2
    Corsair HX-850W
    NZXT Sentry LX

    Anyway enough with the specs and bla bla bla lol and on with the pictures!

    Hey guys! I'm back with another update on the case:

    Reversing the tray seems quite straightforward but...we thought it through and i'm glad we did! We moved the upper rail to the bottom and used an acrylic plate to give it the necessary height! The acrylic will be painted black and ised to hide the holes in the midplate later!
    [​IMG]

    Onward to the important stuff. We had to cut and bend a piece of Alu in an L shape so it could be secured to the other rail and mounted to the case using the original screw holes! This allowed us to invert the tray and still retain all the stock parts of the case as well as the materials, not sacrificing any of the case's sturdiness!
    Some dremel work and some sanding later and here's the result. Can you tell which is the original?
    [​IMG]

    We then mounted the two rails and proceeded to test fit all the parts together. Everythings fits nice and tight as it's suposed to be! Success :D

    One of the things we need to realize is that once you invert the tray you lose the possibility to use the 2x120 top fan mounts. So out comes the dremel again and it's cutting time! We eliminated the fan holders from the top mesh to make it fit and give it a sleek look. Some sanding here and there...

    That's it for now! Thank you for your comments and will update as progress dictates!

    There is just something awesome about having a reversed mobo tray. I think I may add that to my to-do list on my log. :thumb:

    Looks great so far. I really like the look of the front pane. Can't wait to see how this turns out on a great case.
