Since posting this project I've had people asking me to customize their Corsair front plate. A better solution than me doing each one by hand is cnc milling the ventilation holes. So we played around with different test pieces until we nailed down the right steps to mill the factory plate without splintering or cracking the plastic panel on the back. Here is the result with 350D version, and next will be 750D, then 900D, once I find cheaper resource for bulk ordering the factory plates, and listing them here, https://mnpctech.com/mnpctech-clear-...ir-350d-plate/

CNC milled 1/4" diameter ventilation holes into a replacement Corsair 350D Mid Tower Front Bezel Plate. The ventilation area of holes on this plate measures 5.25" x 7.25", but I can extend it on the 750D & 900D version.

Thank you Skippman! We had to make larger fixture for drilling the ventilation holes in the 750D front plates, but turned out pretty good!, Corsair 750D CNC Milled Vented Front Bezel Plate

I may be a little late to this thread but figured it could still use a soundtrack for it. Great job on the case.

Here is another case mod I've been asked to create for the 900D as a result of working on my "Bombs Away" project. A lot of 900D owners have told me they wanted a clear window to replace their Corsair 900D Obsidian factory tinted window. I've developed a way to machine 1/4" thick cast acrylic to mount in the same manner as the factory cast polycarbonate window, which scratches easily.

I love the build!

Always been a sucker for bomber nose art. I had my Harley Road Glide painted up in a bit of that theme (and to honor my wife). Here is the read tour pack.
