The panel is relocated from the front to the top. Don't ask why is gold... is a long story

Working on the front... first step, cut around the border.

Now the path is clear to fix the new front. This part won't have any screws, so the fix point must be inside. To do that, i cut an acrylic tube, measuring the screw length to fix from inside and then cover the hole.

Here you can see where the holes are located

And hide...

The fan is gold too (again, don't ask why). but i'll paint it white or black... let's see what fits better. On the botton there are two lights...

20151204_041359000_iOS_zps0nbuxpif.jpg

 

the screws didn't fit in the scheme with that tone, so, need to be painted too.

Top ailerons are cut in angle (45 degree) to keep the inclination

I manage to get a vcard with twin frozn II, for use the heatsink, with a new black and white colors, and replace it into my N460 cyclone.

Modding the pump...

20151211_171613923_iOS_zps1oes9jdd.jpg

 

I tried to install as separate pump, but the truth is, there's not enough space inside to put it

20151211_174630278_iOS_zpsoyfh9prh.jpg

 

So, my solution integrates pump and reservoir on top.

20151219_231139677_iOS_zpsveysprsz.jpg

 

Adding some details...

20151219_155812581_iOS_zps2tdgogeh.jpg

 

Testing the location of each part, the thermal armor has three parts which frame around the waterblock. Mounting the waterblock allow to check each one.

Also, the i/o ports will be cover. to fix to the motherboard i bend two pieces of acrylic that ends in the mounting hole.
