This was fun. It was my first time cutting a case up. All went well except for the scratches on the side panel, due to shavings on the bench. Guess you learn the hard way. The primary tool was a jigsaw, w/ 24 tpi blades, slow speed, and i didn't break a single one :cool:
Other mods include the mounting holes for the pump and the radiator fan rheostat. Since i have another lexan panel, i might cut a window in the other side to show the drive clutter.

Thanks for looking.

Nice, I love those cases. Do you like it?

YES!!

Only it's not as roomy as i thought it would be. The mobo side could use a couple inches. Notice how i had to circle the hoses through the other half to work the northbridge in the line. There just wasn't enough space for my Y-fitting coming off the Nemesis.

Also, my old Chevy heatercore wouldn't fit inbetween the drive rails of the other side. I had to opt for the JR-120, which is doing quite well, i might add.

The cable routing hole could be a little bigger, too.

These were all problems i worked around without much fuss, however. So i'm very happy with it :D

What pump is that? Looks nice....good cabling job. Maybe now you should put a cathode or two inside the front behind the bezel and have it glowing out.

nice job, very clean

what pump is that?

i dont think i've even seen a blower fan in a watercooled case before :{)

: ) :

That's an older QuietOne pump. link
And that is a long ear'd happy wooden Buddha on it.

I have an LED, and a couple more that i haven't installed. They're blue, and i want red ones.:mad: Guess i should post a pic of it in the dark.

I put the blower in because the pump is on that side, and there's no exhaust fan on the back of the case except on the other side. When Abit releases a monitor that i can disable the alarms on, i'll see if it's helping at all with the case temp. I can't even tell it's there, it's so quiet.

That looks really cool :)

IMHO a blue light behind the door (neon, led, whatever) would look really cool with the light radiating from the doors openings
