Alright, I've finally found time to take more pics. The mod is very nearly finished, just need to finish the front-panel lighting and the front-panel USB ports.
Unfortunately I did a lot of work on it between now and the last time I took pictures, so I don't really have any pics of the making of this stuff.
Finished the turbine. It isn't perfect, but I think it turned out quite well:
The fan's panel is mounted on a hinge and simply clicks in and out, making maintenance on the filter and fan extremely easy:
Fan is a Scythe Kaze Slim 120x12mm. The filter serves a dual purpose. First, it blocks dust, and second, it blocks the red light from the inside, as the front panel glows blue and I don't want it to clash.
In case you were wondering what that knob and metal plate contraption is on the front panel, it's a switch for a 5-LED light I installed in the front panel.
Here's the wiring I did for it:
Unfortunately, when I went to Micro Center to buy this light, they only had one in stock. I'll have to get the other one later.
I also made a tool-less thumscrew HDD retention mechanism:
You can now simply unscrew the thumbscrew and slide the HDD out. That mount has come a long way since the three metal strips screwed to the bottom of the case.
The rear panel:
The only thing of note here is that I removed the old plastic retention clip mechanism and drilled and tapped two holes for the thumbscrews holding the side panel on.
It also received a badly-needed hardware update. Thanks to all the folders who provided the hardware!
