Cooler Master HAF Case Mod

Recommended Posts

I'm continuing with more case mods performed to the HAF 922 I won in Cooler Master's 2009 Case Mod Competition. I will be customizing the front bezel for 2x 120mm intakes

I have shown you how to install your own Cooler Master HAF window

I'm using paper to make a template for 2x 120mm front intake plate.

Tracking template onto 1/8" thick aluminum sheet.

I used a Jigsaw with 18 TPI metal cutting blade to cut the design. I will refine and finish the cuts with a hand file later.

The 1/8" thick aluminum won't fit in my bending brake, so I used my bench vise to bend the aluminum.

I've attached the new bezel plate on with pop rivets.

In order to use the Knock-out punch, you need to drill a 2" pilot hole.

Greenlee Knock out Punches

Greenlee part # 730EBB-120 Last time I inquired, they were around $450 in the states + Large 3/4" socket wrench, and 2" socket. I wouldn't use anything less than 19" long socket wrench. Estimated purchase price of $550 new.
