BODY WORK


Next on my list of things to do was some body work for fans, handles, etc…



I measured out my 5 ¼" bay for my three 40mm fans and drew out where I needed to drill in pencil on the bay itself. On the back of the case I wanted to add another 80mm exhaust fan, so I measured and marked that on the back of the case. I also took the rivets out of the top, and measured out where I wanted my top 80mm exhaust fan and handles to be.






I then proceeded to cut, drill, dremel, and smooth for a while and wasn't disappointed in the least bit by the results! (except for the scratch on the middle 40mm fan on the back…)






To finish off the fan holes, I put edge molding on all the 80mm fan holes (Provided by ZXMods), and put rubber grommets in all the mounting holes to prevent vibrations and reduce case noise, and to top it off, Atomic fan grills will be added!!! (Both provided by Voyeur Mods).






Just after I finished doing all the fan hole cutting, my fans came, (HUGE thanks to Nexfan for providing fans) and so I decided to install them… Handles (Provided by ZXMods) were also installed at this time.





Last piece of body work I had to do was put the 3 rocker switches into one of my 3.5" bays. I used a drill bit to create the initial hole for each switch, then took the dremel to the holes to make them so the switches would fit correctly. One side on the switches protruded out a bit, so the holes are a bit lopsided, but its for a reason… Was a little bit more work than I had expected, but turned out perfect, so I can't complain too much.


After all the body work was done, I re-riveted the case back together…
