Well, this is gonna be a quick quick weekend mod.

I already have my workstation up and when i looked at the Bitfenix Shadow i liked the shapes.

 

So this little front panel mod is about combining the Bitfenix Prodigy and Shadow.

 

Well, let´s go!

 

My workstation right now

 

Specs

AMD A10 6800k

16gb GeIL EVO Veloce

2x120gb Intel 320 SSD

VTX3D Radeon 7950 X-Edition Boost

Custom watercooling, 240mm radiator in the top with Be Quiet! fans and red led 140mm fans in front and back.

 

And here´s how it looked before i was tired of the front piece :)

And the Bitfenix Shadow i got inspired by.

Well, here is the rough shape. I may be putting in an angle in the lower part of the front also, dont know yet.

Some filing and putty/bondo to do now!

Almost burned my brain out getting this angles correct :)

And now when i look at it to get a feeling for the next step. The Bitfenix handles on top dont fit anymore.

Soo, the quick weekend mod turned out to be some more, but i have one rule: Anything i do need to get done without powering down the workstation :)

First layer of putty, the shape is done now. Just some sanding and paint left.

Probably go with a high polished bitfenix logo in the front, like the one i had earlier but this time polished alu :)
And maybe a led or two behind it, and lift it out 2-3mm from the panel.

 

No idea on the handles yet, but i think i´ll see that one when the front panel is in place!

Well, primer on. Some small surface sanding to do before final paint. (black).
 
Dont know if i want the fan controller in the front either, just a high polished aluminium bitfenix logo.

99% done now, i put my fat fingers on the front piece, noticed it now when i packed away the camera, well...
Flash on camera makes color diff bigger than its really are.
 
have some re-aligning to do on the logo, and lower it a bit.
Went with a brushed alu style on it :)

Final pics soon, will take them daytime to prevent bad pics :)

    There's a thing here. Somehow it moved to the top of the page, but I didn't do it. No, really! But still, Cheaps is likely to blame...
