3 Bay 6" LCD Mod:
Here is Version 2 of the LCD
screen mod that Troy and I came up with for the front of your PC, this time I
will show how to do it without having to make any changes to your case.
- Above is a picture of the completed mod, below is how it
The New Mod:
Below are the tools and materials used in this
You will have to come up with a front bezel for
your LCD screen that fits into the three 5.25? bays. I was lucky once again to
have some made up out of a side Lian-Li panel for my screen. But you can use
whatever you would like to make one.
I started by using a piece of sheet metal for
the sides to mount the screen onto so it can be installed like any other bay
After measuring out the inside of the case, I
needed two pieces to be 5 inches high by 6 inches wide. I used a pair of metal
shears to cut the sheet metal. To attach the LCD screen to the side rails I had
to bend the mounting brackets on the screen to the inside 90 degrees.
After noticing that there is a rail on the
inside of the case for your drives to sit on, I had to nibble a line down the
side of the sheet metal so the panel could slide into the case without that rail
being in the way.
