I have been wanting to do some kind of case mod for awhile. I didn't have a case where I would actually be improving it. I just purchased an old core 2 duo system from a friend for pretty cheap. The case he gave me was an old dell oem something or a another. I've also wanted to experiment with upward airflow. I have very little experience with modding. I don't even have a dremel yet but will be needing one soon for this. So I will be getting one. I do need some input from some more experienced modders. So let me explain what I have done so far and what I am planning so far. My goal is to take this not nice case and make it a nice upward airflow case. The only use I have for the hardware is for some sort of nas/server. The case will be overkill for sure. Really the system is a play thing that I don't have to worry about. Hardware: Cpu: core 2 duo 4300 1.8ghz Motherboard: BIOSTAR G41D3+ http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813138314 Hdd: I only have a 1tb hdd for now Here is the original case. I circled the big dell logos that I will have to dremel off. I don't know what to replace them with. I could do a window on the side that faces the internals but the other side just faces a wall. The little steel thing on the right is a hdd cage I might use from another old case I have. This case only came with a cage for a single hdd that wont work for my mod. This next picture shows what I want to do with this case. I want to have upward airfllow as I stated before. I am thinking two silent 140mm fans in the bottom to create positive pressure. Probably on the inside just below the hdd cage, whichever hdd cage setup I do use. That is one of the things I need help on. Hdd cage placement and size. This is an area of what will be the bottom that I am thinking of cutting out and replacing with some kinda grating. I would like to implement some kind of air filter that would hopefully be removable. The area outline is a little longer than the 280mm needed I think. I also need to put four feet on this face. The feet will have to be long enough to allow air intake. This is the inside of the case with airflow arrows. In this picture there is the single hdd cage that came with the case, the double hdd cage I took out of another case, and the double 5.25 inch bay drives I removed. This motherboard only has 4 sata ports but I think it would be better to have more hdd cages than that for upgrades. Maybe even an hdd cage than spans the entire length of the cage that lets the air flow through. I like that idea. The cage will have to be about 30-40 mm up to allow placement of fans underneath. I also have several tooless bracket hdd sliders from my haf 912 (main computer) I could use in this if I had an hdd cage that they would work in. I would love to make it have cable management features but I just can't imagine how. There is no space behind the motherboard tray. I will also be spray painting the whole case a uniform color. Another thing I could really use help on is how to implement an on button. I don't want to sink a whole bunch of money, or really any money, into this. So keeping costs down is a priority. All I did today was remove the top and side panel which are one piece. I also remove all internals. Now I need some advice and a dremel. So to summarize the things I would really like to hear are: (updated) -What to do with the hole that removing those dell logos, or anything in hiding the dell logos? Any comments, suggestions, ideas.. anything is welcome.
