Default "OVERKILL 922"

My canvas for this project is the Cooler Master HAF 922




I'm using paper to make a template for 2x 120mm front intake plate.


Tracking template onto 1/8" thick aluminum sheet.


I used a Jigsaw with 18 TPI metal cutting blade to cut the design. I will refine and finish the cuts with a hand file later.


The 1/8" thick aluminum won't fit in my bending brake, so I used my bench vise to bend the aluminum.

I'm using a Mouse sander with medium Grit sandpaper to remove all of the blemishes and scratching in the surface of the aluminum



Aluminum plate surface is finished. Next step is fastening it on with pop rivets, more on this soon!

I've attached the new bezel plate on with pop rivets.

In order to use the Knock-out punch, you need to drill a 2" pilot hole.


Greenlee Knock out Punches
Greenlee part # 730EBB-120 Last time I inquired, they were around $450 in the states + Large 3/4" socket wrench, and 2" socket. I wouldn't use anything less than 19" long socket wrench. Estimated purchase price of $550 new.

Personally don't really like those fan grills. But that's just me, I prefer minimalist.
