My case mod, it's still a work in progress, wiring is all that's left. Bare case with the module rails cut out. Bit disconcerting to get a brand new case home and start cutting it up, but at least there's no turning back. Motherboard tray with 12mm marked out where i'm going to cut it out at the top. I needed the clearance for the base of the case. 12mm taken out of the top, 32mm taken off the right side, i made a rail and welded it into place where the right hand side mounts for the board are, then trimmed off the edge. Back panel before modding, i'm taking 12mm out of the left side to match the top of the trimmed motherboard tray. Cut and bolted the aluminium frame, the 4 blots maintain strength and alignment. Trimmed back panel, welds are on the inside out of sight. Modded motherboard tray, this is concealed inside the case. Completed rear panel with 12mm taken out to match the m'board tray. Completed assembly. Colour's metalic blue to contrast the black components. Original base of the case with the grille removed. Modded base, it looks crude here, but it gets better. Mockup of the underneath fans, 6x80mm, 2x40mm. Frame i fabricated to support the weight, and to protect the fans, It's made from 30mm right angle steel, boxed on the ends to mount the castors. Fans are only 25mm, so i can put a trolley under it if i want to, fans are always protected. On to the hard part, 1.5mm plate steel for the cradle i've had a visual image of in my head for 12 months. 3 weeks work in my spare time measuring and cutting these. Centre rail to support the drives internally, every 2nd one is shorter for a reason.
