Well it rained again today but I did get a little done. In this 1st picture we can see I've mounted the Power Panel, Optical Drives and the Hard Drive. I'll only be using 3 of the Drive Bay Covers which will go down to and cover the Hard Drive. And I'll be using the Honeycomb Mesh to cover the rest of the area and the fans will be mounted to the Mesh.
Here we have the 3 Drive Bay Covers which I got painted before it rained.
And I painted the USB and Power/Reset/Activity Cables black with a Permanent Marker.
Here is the Seagate Barracuda 250 GB Drive, I've mounted it to the chassis with a set of Nexus DoubleTwin Hard Drive Vibration Absorbers ( Nexus DoubleTwin Hard Drive Vibration Absorber Products Model: NX-DT-HDD [NX-DT-HDD] : Performance-PCs.com, ... sleeve it and they will come
) which I painted black and I've attached a Scythe "KAZE-JYU" Silent Slim 100X12mm Fan to it with the drive mounting hardware included with the fan ( Scythe "KAZE-JYU" Slim100mm Silent 100mm Fan (fits 92mm fan holes) - Med Speed - Sleeved Products Model: SY1012SL12M [SY1012SL12M] : Performance-PCs.com, ... sleeve it and they will come
). These are the same fans I used on the Video Card Cooler which I thought were 10mm, I stand corrected at 12mm.
I'll be hand painting all the visible screw heads and the visible parts of the Optical Drives in this next Picture.
Here we can see the back of the PC. I think I'll paint the I/O Shield.
When we zoom in we can see I've drilled out the fan mounting holes and installed some noise reducing Gromments.
And there hard to see but I've used Black Anodized Thumbscrews to mount the Power Supply. I've got enough for the Side Panels but I'm a few short for all the Card Slots, I need to order 5 more.
And the last 2 pictures of the day are of the Top Panel, of which I've attached all the parts to and I've mounted the Top Exhaust Fan.
