Thanks for the feedback! Sorry I've been away with other commitments, but this behemoth case must be finished, so I can get my shop space back, and I like the 750, PP... Corsair cases are very well made..

So, I finally narrowed it down to 3 different choices for the Nose Pinup girl art, in water slide decals from Pin Ups Plus - Retro Pinup Decals ....
Once they arrive, I'll see which one I like best, positioned on the panel...*

Memphis Belle



S276, Vintage Bomber Girl



S613, Sexy Bomber Girl




For the 480 grills, I'll be using these anodized M3 radiator screws, in either Green / Black or Green / Stainless combination

Green and Black



or Green and Stainless

+1 on the Sexy bomber girl

and I would go with the black screws, since your case is OD green anyway, it fits the military style.

In honor of Memorial Day today, I've made a video of my this project as tribute case mod to WWII Memphis Belle Bomber with help from my friends, Frickin Bill, Anthony Reynolds and FannBlade. The case is now in Anthony's hands, waiting for a custom liquid cooled system.

Sick man! Have you guys had a lot of requests for the "bomb" to be made for people? Did you ever get it implemented as a reservoir for a watercooled loop?

Thanks! I think one individual had one made by Fannblade. Since posting this guide I've had people asking me to customize their Corsair front plate. A better solution than me doing each one by hand is cnc milling the ventilation holes. So we played around with different test pieces until we nailed down the right steps to mill the factory plate without splintering or cracking the plastic panel on the back. Here is the result with 350D version, and next will be 750D, then 900D, once I find cheaper resource for bulk ordering the factory plates, and listing them here, https://mnpctech.com/mnpctech-clear-...ir-350d-plate/

CNC milled 1/4" diameter ventilation holes into a replacement Corsair 350D Mid Tower Front Bezel Plate. The ventilation area of holes on this plate measures 5.25" x 7.25", but I can extend it on the 750D & 900D version.

We had to make larger fixture for drilling the ventilation holes in the 750D front plates, but turned out pretty good!, Corsair 750D CNC Milled Vented Front Bezel Plate
