(TowerMod) HAF-X MOD by Indiyet

Recommended Posts

indiyet    0

Hello, my name is Franco Cattana, aka Indiyet.

I come to share the mod I did to my Haf-x.

Hope you like it.

The concept of this mod is that it is clean and attractive with a full window so you can fully appreciate it.

I will do my best to make it so.

This project started with an idea and changed over time.

Although not 100% finished I must confess that I am very happy with the result so far.

If time and my pocket permits, I will make some changes before the end of the competition day.

3rst Day

Today I gave thread to see if something moved.

As I wrote before I had to change the position of the pump and reservoir for aesthetics more than anything (besides had no other compressor 90 to match reservoir-pump) so I had to put the reservoir hung back and the pump below the PSU COVER.

First of all amure While aluminum chapon

After measuring, marking and cutting to make the hole to pass the hose down and go to the pump.

This was finally:

Tomorrow is to finish the hole for the pump and start sanding sheets to be best:

4th Day

Today I dedicate to complete the circuit pump-rad-cpu-vga-reservoir-pump.

Seeing that the PSU cover was not decided whether to spend hauling in the "L" that anchor the grooves that brings the haf-x factory. In fact he had not done before because I thought would look good but no, I did not like aesthetically.

img2231px.jpg

img2194j.jpg

img2207q.jpg

img2199sx.jpg

I also had to put screws in front and moving a bit:

img2201hi.jpg

to finish the hole to pass the mouth of the pump:

img2211hv.jpg

img2215ec.jpg

img2217ti.jpg

Now screw the pump to display and measure to cut the hose:

5th Day

Today it was the ssd :D

Trying different positions for the above I decided to put it as originally planned, at the top of 5.25 ".

A measure and holes:

img2263cl.jpg

img2265u.jpg

img2266i.jpg

img2272m.jpg

Then make the cavity to pass the cables:

img2277yx.jpg

img2279i.jpg

in this last photo shows a calculation I did wrong because I had to enlarge a couple of holes :P

Finally:

img2280w.jpg

img2281dw.jpg

img2286zs.jpg

img2285m.jpg

Now the hard part I play so far is doing the same cavity in the cabinet and not passing through any other side:

img2295y.jpg

img2294td.jpg

img2293ju.jpg

After a good time to hand filing was more or less but the important thing is that the wires run:

img2304o.jpg

img2298ly.jpg

Finally for today .. presented'm something like this:
