Case Modding

Got the case out and had a look how to fit the cooling inside it.

Going to put an XSPC RS240 radiator in the front after i've modded the fans to 120mm instead of those 80mm's.





First problem I can see is the 2 external 3.5" drive bays.

They're going to fowl on any radiator I try to fit in there so i'm gonna have to zip those off.





-------------------------------------

I got a few other bits & pieces done today whilst I had the jigsaw out.

Cut a piece of aluminum to size which will fasten the bottom of the 5.25" drives together after i've cut out the 3.5" bays.



Also cut another piece to size, once i've finished with this it'll accept 120mm fans instead of the tiny 80mm fans.

Got this idea from another V300 build I found on the net.



I've started looking at pump mounting, the Xirex Res top is about 15mm too tall thats that idea down the pan.

Currently looking at mounting an EK 150ml reservoir somewhere and using a normal DDC top instead.





----------------------------------------------

I went out and bought a new pack of Dremel Cut-off Wheels because I couldn't get at the drive bays with a jigsaw.

I've cut the 3.5" bays off the bottom of the 5.25" bays in order to allow me to fit the radiator in the front of the case.

Aaaye, some candy red powder left over from another job and got offered it since it's not something they'd normally use.

Powder on the outside is fine but it should be plasma etched on for extra toughness.
