Sorry about the delay on this one. I was enjoying my long week end so much I forgot to post what I did.
The courier shows up with the case. And I spend some time looking at it and seeing that I should do.
First thing I did was drill out the 80mm fan holes from the front and the back of the frame. I don't like the noise that those air holes make after you place a fan near them.
As for the front panel itself, I was about to drill a large 120 mm hole into it, and then create a fun going down to the 80 mm fan. However with the front panel design would of made it rather difficult to do this task. So I adbandoned that idea.
Instead, at the bass of the front front panel, there is a group of small vent holes. I drilled them out so that they would be bigger. And I my plans are to install a set of green super bright LEDs behind it.
PAY DAY!!! Time to spend money.
I when down to my favorite mod shop just out side of china town at picked up the following
1x Case Art Vinal Sticker. It a picture of Trinity in the phone booth from the Matrix.
1x Super Bright 3x Geen LED Sets
2x Eluminating Green IDE Cable.
1x Set of 2 Green Eluminating Case Handles.
Used a dremel to cut out a small hole for the super bring LEDs. I don't think my old man has much in the way of Metal Cutting tools for his dremel as I totally F.U.B.A.R.ed 2 of his blades. (Oops
I then started working on custting the hole in the side panel for the side windows.
I used an angel grinder for cutting out the hole. I nearly lost my left index fingure as I was not paying attension to where the blade was. But I was not really wearing all the safe gear.
After the angel grinding, I then tidyied up the edges with a power filer and finally a dremel.
I've drilled holes in the top for the handles.
After that, gave the case it first black under coat some some of the paint from my last project.
I will post photos when I get home.
