New window


Just got finished cutting it out. Cut with a jigsaw, cleaned up with a cordless drill and grinding bit, then finished with a file. Molding is made from the insulation from 4mm black cable split down the middle with a sharp knife. I have some lexan waiting to go in it at work (forgot to bring it home on friday) and after that its just a case of cleaning up the wires a bit more, swapping the fan grill for a laser cut one, and adding some lighting.

Those are the rails for the cdrom drive bays. If you ever owned an antec/antec clone case, youd see those.

Like Azeroth says, theyre spare drive rails. I did think about carrying it up to the top of the case, but theres nothing really worth seeing in the top half...a PSU, the back end of 3 optical drives, and a jumble of cable, so I left it at that

Yeah, since that's a full tower there's really nothing to see up top, that's why i like the design so much.
