    This my front ... the lower part will be cut today, so that the rad on pic 2 will get fresh air. The original front bezel is going to get CNC cut and is already at a friends.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]


    But as you can see. The 240 rad fits exactly in the V351. But it really is up to a mm.

    [​IMG]


    The small supporting rad will be where the 80mm fan is in the back. Did my own bezel there, so i can put tubing through it.

    [​IMG]


    In the floor some more fan support when on lan party.

    [​IMG]


    The pump is sited in the front. Behind you find the place for the Gigabit switch. I did cut out the 5,25 drive bays on the left side for this as you can see on pic 2. Pic 3 shows the mounting of the switch.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]


    The switch himself with new wiring, as i am using the PSU of my rig for power.

    [​IMG]



    DVD drive with stealth mod.

    [​IMG]


    All the other drives ...

    [​IMG]


    operation fresh air accomplished

    small Bling Bling update ...

    first of all i mounted some white LED under the floor.

    [​IMG]


    Awfully they had special connectors, but when i looked closely they had the same like fans .. here we go

    [​IMG]


    Took the old ones off and wired them through the ventilation holes in the floor.

    [​IMG]

    Then some UV cold cathodes 10 cm.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]


    The inverter comes behind the 5,25" bezel in front of the HDD.

    [​IMG]

    Here we go for the next update

    Pump power cable was too long ... so shortened it. The LED bands will be connected to the fan connector of the pump later

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]


    The front not cleanly wired yet. Still waiting for the front bezel. :-(

    [​IMG]


    Front buttons haven´t been sleeved yet ...

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]


    BTW ... this is the back bezel which i did for the rad.

    [​IMG]


    Here a shot from the right side everthing tubed and wired, except power cables.

    [​IMG]


    and the left side.

    Just a picture how the front was before again ... pic from Lian Li in black. I have iron gray.

    [​IMG]

    And now renewed with front ventilation openings.

    [​IMG]

    Just need to remove burs. Still some flakes around.

    Here is the final product. Keep in mind what is inside this little beast.

    Looks great.

    But that tubes looks small-is that 8 mm OD/ 6 mm ID?
