All the best pal, I really hope this turns out great!

Plans look lovely, and the idea has a lot of potential.

I may have to say this is the best mod so far, if it works as planned. Can't wait to see this thing come together.

Hi guys! Thanks a lot for the kind words! Really nice of you and it motivates me

I hope you've all had a nice Christmas (In case you celebrate it) and a happy New Year!

I have today arrived at my own home (I was at my parents for two weeks during the holidays) and school starts tomorrow.
However, I have an update that will be published very soon, I've already made the modification to the side panel and what I have left to attach the plexi/acryllic glass and to take a few pictures and then write the whole update.

So I will get the update soon enough!
All I can say about the the side panel is that I'm very satisfied with it! ))

Hope you're somewhat thrilled to see the next update and enjoy it and further updates!
Soon, soon enough!

Thanks again for your words
Best Regards
Nikkop

UPDAAAAAAATE! : D

Modification and creation of side panel with a window. - 05/01 -2013

UPDATE 05/1 - 2013

Hello dear friends and companions!
Hope you all had a nice and enjoyable Christmas and a great New Year!

I myself have been down in my former city where I visited my family and friends for Christmas and New Year.
This does not mean that I had a vacation from project, oh no!
Instead, I took some time and worked with the side panel to get it done just the way I want it.

Eager to result?

Let's begin!
_____________________________________________

Here we see the first picture in this update. Nothing fancy, it's one of the side plate with holes (when motherboard position is in original condition) will be able to take in air through the holes for the graphics card.
I chose this site because it is the one we will look through to see into the chassis. In any case, you can put the side panel on the side of the chassis you want, which is good if you want it on the other side.


Since I will have a plexiglass window in the side panel I must saw a hole where I want the glass to be.
I tape across the front so that the jigsaw tool won’t hurt and leave mark on the plate.


I'm testing with a drill to see how hard the plate is to drill through, and trust me when I say that this plate is thick and stable!
This is thin crap, it’s quite thick and solid.


I measure how far I'm going to cut the hole.
One side on the back of the side plate, this piece that helps the plate to attach to the chassis, which means I can not cut the hole farther than what this piece is, so therefore I use this piece for measures when I decide how large the hole will be.


I turn the plate over and draw on the tape which works well, attaches great.
I also have rounded corners and I do this with the help of a lid of the appropriate size


Now I have drawn out the dimensions and what remains is to cut out the hole.
I start by drilling a hole near the edge. I must have somewhere to stick my saw and begin cutting.


Once the hole is drilled, just run down the jigsaw and start cutting!
Since the side plate is pretty thick it takes some time to get through, and turns in the corners requires a steady hand.


Finally the piece got off! Now we can see how big the hole will be and how much space the glass will take.
Removing the tape to see how it looks without and actually surprisingly good! Edges, lengths and such are not 100% straight but I fix it afterwards using a dremel with grinding nozzle.


I test tried to attach the glass after I had sanded the edges, but I did not like it. I thought something was missing and felt that it needed something to fill out, something pretty.


So I went and looked at different types of edging lists and it ended up I bought one of these, 9mm edge strip of rubber.


Mounting the edging and the results are really nice! Even if a rim is mainly used to disguise / hide the edges, for me it was a really nice feature that I liked very much. It fits in terms of design and I like it quite a lot!


So, now that the side panel has been sawn and got a nice edging, so I want to see how it looks when the side plate is in place on the chassis!
It may look like crap, who knows?
I must say I like it!
I was really pleased with size of the hole, the rounded edges and the rim.


What is missing then? Well, plexiglass course!
I test fit the plexiglass to see how it will look. I have another piece of plexiglass coming up because this was a little too short to be attached the way I wanted, it is now temporarily attached with double-stapled tape just to see how it looks.
But yes, I am satisfied and happy with the outcome! What do you say?


_____________________________________________

I was very pleased with the result. If I manage to keep the same quality the rest of the modification, I think this modification will turn out to be brutally good, hopefully! >

What did you think of this step , when I modified the side plate?
I’ll be more than happy to read your comments and thoughts!

We'll see what the next step will be, the school has begun to pick up again and it will take some time. But tension remains stronger than ever and it itches in my fingers every day when I look at the case

Have a nice day!
Thanks in advance
Best Regards
Nikkop
