I used Loctite again to secure the frame to the bezel I cut out. A little pressure is enough to ensure that it dries smoothly

Image

I was about to add the PSU, but the screws I have are silver

Image

So, I painted them to match

Image

Once I get the system in, I'll be installing Vista Ultimate 64 bit

I haven't updated in a week or so, but I have been working on the front panel radio

Image

And the LCD bay

So after a few days of thinking I'm not sure what I want to do with the front bays. I still have the frame, but I kind of like adding a media reader/fan controller instead

Image

Image

Here's with the fan controller. It's the same one I used with Project Namesake

Image

And here's with the LCD frame

Image

I've put in most of the components so far

Image

Here's a look with the panel on, minus the video card

The LCD display is garbage. When I turned on the computer it blinked and beeped again and again. Even the numbers were rubbish. Since I do like the idea of having a card reader and additional USB ports on the front panel I decided to gut it. I then merged the frame to the LCD cover

Image

This is how it looks

Image

While I wait for the silicon to dry I installed Vista Ultimate

I need help. I'm almost done, but there's something bugging me. I can see some of the wiring through the window and want to cover it maybe?? The video card is just above so mesh might be good here, but it needs to look appropriate. I considered tacking the mesh to the inside of the window too, what do you think?

just clean it up with some tie offs, or put an intake fan or fans there.

I say get some split-loom wire cover. I've seen that under the hood of quite a few cars.

Great mod man! I agree with Jacob though. The yellow loom doesn't really match. Black or orange would be better.

What about paint? Or would it be difficult to paint it?

I painted loom before and it chips and peels very easy. I'd rather find orange loom and if I do before presentation day, I'll get it
