    Default Project: "Dazzed & Confused" Corsair 700D Case Mod

    This is the case mod project log for dazmode with the Corsair 700D case.


    The full tower behemoth is no stranger to me. I modified it's predecessor, the 800D for Hardware Canucks last year.


    Before work can commence, I need tunes..


    Always Measure Once and Cut Twice? er, something like that...


    Dew with a touch of Engine Enamel to fuel my after Midnight modding.. "say wha?"


    Power tools are for making sparks, not building things


    Hey, I was the FIRST! to implement the "box technique" for cutting panels. No fuss, no mess.



    Hmm, I could smuggle a lot of stuff over the Canadian border in this case.



    Ok, stay tuned for more!

    Daz gets to load it up with nice hardware. Even though it will be water cooled, it's important to minimize any air restrictions for the radiator cooling fans. Corsair's factory honeycomb perforated grills do allow decent airflow, but I can make performance even better by removing them altogether.


    The most efficient way to remove the rear grill is with a Greenlee Knock out Punch. It's made by Greenlee, part # 730EBB-120. It cuts a perfect 120mm hole without any mess. Last time I inquired, they were around $450 in the states, plus you need a 3/4" socket wrench, and 2" socket. Estimated purchase price of everything is $550 new. I wouldn't use anything less than 19" long socket wrench.






    The perforated factory rear fan grill on the 700D.


    Using Tin-snips to remove center portion of the rear honeycomb factory grill


    The Greenlee's circular blade cuts through the steel as it's drawn tighter with the socket wrench.



    Billet 120mm fan grill. You can use 140mm size, but you will have to cut notch in the corsair panel
    http://www.performance-pcs.com/catal...ee7d4092828aba


    I thought about using this 120mm Billet SKULL fan grills, but it's really not Daz' style. So they are waiting for another project...


    The insert of the 120mm can be manually rotated for whatever look you want.

    Thanks for the welcome guys! I've really enjoyed checking out the forum and chatting with Doctor_Death offlist this past week. I'm happy to be part of your community

    The Corsair 700D case mod saga for DazMode continues with further dismantling and first stages of a custom paint finish.


    Removing the top of the bezel. This part has the power button, leds, and inputs.


    The door attached to the 5.25 bay to the inputs is easily removed.


    Using a Solder Gun to remove the clear LED & HD activity lense glued into the bay cover by Corsair.


    The Power and HD activity LED lense removed. This will be epoxied back into the bezel after it's painted.


    Use 1/8" drill bit for removing the factory rivets and replacing with Black rivets, http://www.mnpctech.com/Pop_rivets_f...uter_case.html




    The chassis of the 700D will remain Matte Black to offset the new Tangelo Orange exterior.


    Primer coat applied to the top panel.


    This photo of a Lamborghini Diablo GT with "Arancio Borealis" paint, which is a factory two layer peal metallic paint is what inspired Daz color choice. Once I told him how much the overpriced factory paint was to have made, the HoK Tangelo Orange sounded like a better alternative.


    House of Kolor Tangelo Orange.


    Brad applies Orange base coat.


    The next stage will be Tangelo Orange.


    After applying Tangelo Orange.


    Here is Brad buffing out the Clear coat on the House of Kolor Tangelo Orange Paint. When was the last time you had seen an Orange PC? ..Exactly.


    The Corsair 700D's right side access panel with brilliant gloss finish. I just wished we had a sunny day, dammit! I wanted to bring the panel outside and see the pearl in the paint dance under sunlight.
