Title: P180B
Created: 15.11.2008 18:59
My trusty case that I\'ve slightly modified to match meet my requirements.
P180BJSS getting some further modifications...

And if someone doesn't get the image, I pulled the composite roof apart, damn that's some good glue/tape and there's lots of it.

Quick'n'dirty noise dampening mat installation in my trusty P180B. Bought a 50x100 cm piece of this mat from Motonet (cost 14 €, comes with glue). It's not gonna make a huge difference in the noise level, but I used it to block the excess holes of the case as well, so less dust will get in to the case. Took an hour to apply the stuff.

If you're gonna make this to your case then there are a couple of things you should take into consideration:

1. Only place the stuff to places where it doesn't make installation or getting the side panels in place hard/impossible 

2. You don't need to expose the whole glue side, just cut away parts of the paper backing and it'll stick firm enough. This way you can also remove the mat in the future if you wish to. 

3. A sharp knife and scissors are needed to easily cut the stuff. You can also use isopropyl alcohol or such to remove the glue from the blade (or just get multiple knifes).

Had to remove a divider wall from the P180B in order to fit longer power supplies. See also the other image, the HDD fan is now on the front panel. Also added a M4-threaded rod for extra support.

Also ther upper HDD-cage and the external 3,5" place have been removed as they were useless. The original tri-cool fans are changed to quieter Nexus fans. (not installed in the image).

Had to move the bottom fan of the P180B to the front panel as there's no room in between the PSU and the HDD cage. Was a terrible pain in the backside to make a hole for the fan, but now it's there. Lost the lower dust filter in the progress, but other than that the case appears to be stock.

It's not pretty but it works! There's a short piece of aluminum square tube glued to the door so now the DVD-drive can open the door when DVD-burning is finished instead of making annoying noises while trying.

Eli pieni pätkä neliöputkea ovessa, että DVD-asema voi avata oven, aiemmin se on DVD-polton päätteeksi kolistellut tuolla oven takana saamatta sitä auki.
