Default My worklog...

I'm building a new PC and didn't have enough money for a new case right now, so I'm making do with an old case. I need to mod it a bit, though.

First I marked some spots for 80mm fans.

Weapon of choice? Rotary tool, of course.
http://i13.photobucket.com/albums/a2...r/HPIM0805.jpg

I first tried using one of those "heavy duty" cutting discs. It dissolved almost instantly.

I switched to a fiber glass reinforced cutting disc and it lasted the entire project.

The first hole is cut out.

Then the second. Took about 10 - 15 minutes tops.


Ouch.... look at those jagged edges!

Little bit of grinding...
http://i13.photobucket.com/albums/a2...r/HPIM0811.jpg
http://i13.photobucket.com/albums/a2...r/HPIM0812.jpg

Some sanding...
http://i13.photobucket.com/albums/a2...r/HPIM0813.jpg
http://i13.photobucket.com/albums/a2...r/HPIM0814.jpg
http://i13.photobucket.com/albums/a2...r/HPIM0815.jpg

I didn't have any sand paper, so a Dremel attachment had to make do.

After that I wired my fans.
http://i13.photobucket.com/albums/a2...r/HPIM0817.jpg
http://i13.photobucket.com/albums/a2...r/HPIM0818.jpg

The rear (single 80mm) has a 3-pin connector, and the two side 80mm's have a 4-pin molex. The reason the wire is so long is because I need room when I take the case apart. It's one of those old 3-panel-in-1 designs.

Later in the day I got the rear cut out.

Very interesting looking due to the design of the case, but it works.

And here is my two side 80's


That's all I got for now. I'm just waiting for my parts to get here, should be here (hopefully) tomorrow, Friday by the latest.

i changed a couple of the links to images for you. keep the log going . if you're not going to paint be sure to clean up that side panel with some methylated spirits. otherwise be sure to do a good sanding job and clean up all the stuff that comes off.
