Well I keep forgetting about this thread and updating it but oh well.
I started off by removing the HDD bays just so I would have more room to work.
Next I was trying to figure out how to mount the MOBO without drilling new holes in the backplate so I came up with this:
Now it has the bend it in because I couldn't figure out where to vertically mount my res. So my res will be mounted there. I thought it came out well for never bending plastic before.
I then picked up an ek supreme waterblock off someone on EVGA fro a good price. The wholes didn't match up which was ok I figured I would just drill out new wholes. Well it wasn't as easy as I though, I had to merge 2 of the whole and I did this:
But I did get the waterblock mounted even though I'm going to take the bracket to a metal fabrication and have them clean it up or make a new one:
As I type this I'm working on mounting some leds on the front IO panel which will be wired to the controller leds. I am also wiring the USB ports to the front panel along with the putting in 2 vandal switches for the on/off and disk tray eject. I have yet to mount anything inside the case as I'm waiting on my cool runner 3 and demon. Don't want to get it all hooked up and have to take it back out.
And here is a picture of one of my cats hiding
And a picture of some chick with a rockin bod
Get switches mounted and all front IO panel stuff wired
Make Radiator guard
Figure out if I can power 2 fans + my pump off my xbox of if I need to use my molex power supply. More than likely I will.
Mount everything in the case
Cut whole in top for demon update board and nand switcher
