  2. Please visit Our webstore for PC & Case Mod Supplies from Mnpctech! Here is the PC updated in 2014 Order polished Aluminum Diamond plate sheet Order Orange 12" ( 30cm ) Dimmable PC LED Strip here, http://mnpctech.com/case-mods-gaming-pc-liquid-modding-custom-computer-mnpctech-overclock-cooling-fan-grills/orange-12-30cm-dimmable-pc-led-strip.html I modified this Chieftec Dragon chassis in 2006, to commemorate Harley Davidson's 100 Year Anniversary. Youtube Video of Harley Davidson's 100 Year Anniversary. The chassis was modfied to accept two 120mm cooling fans in the front and two 92mm cooling fans in the rear. The standard Chieftec Dragon mid tower has four 80mm cooling fans. One located in each of the two removable hard drive cages. The other two located beneath the Power Supply. I'm a firm believer in positive pressure cooling, this means the intake cfm (cubic-feet-per-minute) exceeds the exhaust cfm. Your case stays cleaner and requires less maintenance Paint scheme from Ford's "Harley Davidson" edition F-Series Super Duty The all time classic, Chieftec's Dragon ATX Server Tower. The greatest challenge was coming up with ideas never seen before on a Chieftec Dragon. This case has become a staple among PC Modders. I hope the modifications I performed inspires other people to getting into case modding. I enjoyed every minute of working on it. In order to outfit the Dragon with two 120mm intake fans, I replaced the lower front portion of the chassis with 12” x 6” piece of sheet metal to accommodate the larger fans. I fabricated another mounting plate to the rear of chassis for two 92mm exhaust fans. You make a lot of fan holes when case modding is your business. You may have seen a description of the Greenlee Knock out Punch in my other worklogs. Tool of the trade (estimated purchase price of $550 new) A Knock out Punch consists of a punch, die and draw stud. (See photo) It operates manually using a wrench, (I recommend a 20” length socket wrench) to turn the threaded draw stud into the mating threads of the punch. This draws the punch into the die, shearing a hole in the material being punched. It requires a pilot hole large enough to insert draw stud through. It only takes a few minutes to make a clean hole. I use a 4.5” punch for 120mm fan holes and 3.5” punch for 92mm. I used a Roper Whitney Hand Punch to make clean fan mounting holes for You can also order MNPCTECH PC fan silencing grommets. The fan holes are outfitted with MNPCTECH wide Black rubber window u-channel to give them that professionally finished look. Ordered set of Mnpctech Black Anodized PC Case Thumb Screws PC Chassis Pop rivets from Mnpctech Order 120mm Top Blow Hole Exhaust Fan Fit Order 120mm RED UV LED Fans Order Clear Acrylic PC Window Sheets One of the Dragon’s nicest amenities is its removable HD cages. Since the 120mm fans will occupy where the HD cages used to mount, I had to modify the HD cages to continue using them. To keep both HD cages removable I joined them together with pop rivets. Next time your cleaning dust from your Dragon’s fan filters (do you clean your filters?!) peer beneath the lower 5.25 bay, see that tiny grey tab? That guides your upper HD cage into its locking position. I had to replace this tab with an 8/32” round head machine screw. The screw is fastened with a nut on the top and bottom so the head protrudes a ¼” beneath the bay. This is so the HD cage lock can grasp onto it. Now the upper HD cage can attach to the lower drive bay. I couldn’t re-install the HD cages just yet because the 38mm thick 120mm fans were in the way. No problem, I grabbed my Dremel and cut a notch that runs 1-3/4” horizontally and 2” vertically in the lower front portion of the HD cage. Now the upper HD cage will clear the first 120 x 38mm. The shelf that originally held the lower HD cage inside chassis was re-attached to the bottom of the upper HD cage with pop rivets. Its offset 1-3/4” towards the rear of the case to clear the bottom 120mm fan. Although the HD cages have been altered fit alongside the 120mm fans, they’re still removable like Chieftec’s engineers intended. Heres the progression of HD cage mod. In order to clear the 38mm thick fans in the front of the Chieftec chassis, I had to move back the HD cages. Notice that I've attached one of the shelfs beneath the upper cage. The trick is that you have drill out and replace the 2 steel tabs (beneath lower 5.25 and also upper HD cage) with machine screws. Now the HD cage locks have something to clasp onto.. follow? :) Steel tab (originally intended to guide upper cage) Replaced with 8/32 machine screw On top of lower HD cage Chieftec Dragon HD Cage Mod Before (2, 80mm intake fans) After (2, 120mm intake fans) After Powdercoating (U-channel & Grommets) 80mm exhaust modified to fit 2, 92mm fans. I initially planned on using Mnpctech Diamond Knurl case feet, but later decided upon Lian Li castors Machined aluminum "Diamond Knurl" pc case feet on his CM II, which are made in HAAS cnc lathe. The base diameter is 1- 3/4" with height of 1" to elevate the case for improved airflow beneath it. Now you got "big gun" 120 x 38mm Panaflos in your Dragon. Fans are offset because they're positioned directly in front of HD cages. Solid aluminum casters from Lian Li's Premium V Series Line. here Make sure theyre nice and square.
