    Smallish update just to let you know I'm still working on it :thumb:

    Laying out the rads and fans placement, I whipped up some quick mounts from angle bar.


    Then I laid them out to see where they will eventually go.


    I'm working up some custom acrylic one-piece mounts that will look much better than these ones.

    I also did some cosmetic work to the front of the case. It seems that Lian Li forgot to drill some holes in this one area,
    and they just stuck a square name badge over it to cover up their mistake! :lol:
    Well, not to worry, I'll take care of it...
    I used the corner piece I cut out as a guide to drill out the missing holes.




    All done, save for some sanding and filing.


    I will have a custom name badge mounted over this area, so it has to look uniform, which is why I drilled out the old LL badge.

    I should be able to get some more work done over the weekend, so til then!

    Oh I like this. Really some cool ideas coming out in this. The resivours should looks awesome when finished. PSU mounting is nifty. My favorite has to be the pass-throughs for the radiators. Looking forward to seeing this one done.

    Thanks guys.
    Got more accomplished this weekend. Worked on the side panels a bit more, and got the hard drive mounts done.

    After contemplating how I was going to mount three hard drives in the case, I decided to go
    about it a bit differently than the standard drive cage. I came up with a way to stack them up,
    but on their sides, so there will basically be a wall of drives next to the motherboard. I used
    some 1/2" square acrylic rod, cutting two pieces equal length. I only had two old drives, so I
    used a Coca-Cola tin as my third, just to get an idea of overall height. three drives stacked
    comes out to 12", and I have 13" total height from the floor to the top of the case. So I spaced
    them out so I had 3/8" on top and bottom, and 1/8" in between.


    I marked the rods and cut out three 4" sections for the drives. One done, one to go.


    Here's how the drives will sit on the rods.


    I will be utilizing the drive's bottom mounting holes, instead of the usual side holes.


    After some filing and general clean-up, I brought the 1TB Samsungs out for a test fit.




    Here is how they will be positioned in the case.


    To secure them in the case, I will drill and tap some holes in the bottom ends, and in the back
    side for the top. Once I get to the lighting portion of the build, I will probably add some led's
    as well and light them up.
