Nice clean build mate, does that angled fan have another infront of it mounted in the case? Maybe if you made a jig out of wood and formed the acrylic around that it would have been easier. Like you said best way wouldbe cut the shapes out and use acrylic cement to bond them, it actually melts the acrylic together iirc, if you use glue it can make the acrylic go cloudy.
Anyway +1 for interesting idea and clean build, I'd like t see what actual benefits it has on temps/air flow. (Is that fan easy to remove so you could test that?)
Thx. The fan is right behind front intake (2x 140mm fractal design fans, that came with the case).
Yop I know about acrylic cement, that's what I meant by gluing :) should have specify.
It is possible to remove it just like any fan. I didn't have much time yet, but next week I intent to do some benchmarks, OC and temp. testing with and without it. But as I said, I see biggest potential with 2nd GPU.
So far I've seen temp.: cca 30° idle to 58° under load....same CPU maybe little lower under load. The GTX 970 is factory OC...so I don't expect much room for further OC....but we'll see :).
So far I'm pretty content...shredding anything at 1080p...and that was it's purpose.
and did I mention almost no noise? :)
How did you manage to change the power LED? :O
There're two LEDs...the power one is rectangular shape 2x5mm and HDD activity LED is small 3mm classically shaped. Once you buy them it's just simple soldering. It's quite easy to pull them out of the power button housing....but you'll have to pry away the front plastic panel.
