  1. Most modern cases include a power supply cover or shroud that cleans up the internal look of your PC by hiding things such as your PSU cables and drive cages. However, some cases don’t include this or you may want to upgrade your existing case with one, so I will show you how to make one on your own! For this guide, we’re going to use a build in the Carbide Series SPEC-04 Tempered Glass case. As you can see in the image above, it’s a great budget case with an open internal layout with the PSU and cables visible. A PSU shroud would be an easy mod to do to for this case and would help clean things up. First, I put together a quick mockup using cardboard. Cardboard is a great way to quickly prototype parts like a PSU cover which can be hard to visualize. Next, I measured how wide the cover needed to be. Then I measured the length, which can change based on your fan configuration in the front or any other parts that may get in the way. Finally, I measured the height, which we’ll add to the width to figure out how big a piece we’ll need to cut out, adding a few extra millimeters for the bend. I marked out the measurements on a sheet of 2mm thick aluminum. This was later cut out with a jigsaw and the edges filed down with regular hand files and sandpaper. Take the height from the measurements again and mark out on the sheet of aluminium, this will help when doing the bend. I used a sheet bender for this. This is how the part ended up looking after the bend, however I did not want it to be raw aluminum… …so I spray-painted it white. If you’re interested in the process I used, I covered spray-painting parts in a previous blog post. Mounting the cover is very straightforward, I did not want any screws to be seen so I used 3M double-sided tape and mounted the cover to the PSU itself. This is how it ended up looking mounted, much cleaner don’t you think? When the entire project was finished I ended up with a pretty great result, what do you think? Leave a comment and stay tuned for more how-to mod blogs.
  2. So i bought the 750D back in January with the intent of doing some actual custom mods to the case, but only recently got around to doing them. I loved the minimalistic shape and design of the case, but wanted to remove the drive cage and add a PSU shroud to make the interior as clean as possible. (as a side note to Corsair, if you could make a 750D with a removable CD drive cage, that would make this case flawless for water cooling in my opinion). Having pre-ordered the GTX 1080 and receiving it on launch day, I took the three-day holiday weekend to create a custom acrylic shroud to cover the holes/rivets on the back of the case, as well as the entire bottom PSU/hard drive area. Hope you guys like it! I think it turned out sexy as hell. If there's enough interest, i might make a youtube video tutorial. Used cardboard to prototype the shape of the final acrylic piece and verify measurements: http://imgur.com/9uGRH8I.jpg Cut a sheet of .22" acrylic to the desired flat shape of the final piece: http://imgur.com/rsXlpmG.jpg http://imgur.com/j7AHxcn.jpg After bending (using a heat gun and aluminum-wrapped wood boards to keep lines straight), I put the bent piece into the case to verify that it fits and everything still lines up. http://imgur.com/CfQNKjz.jpg Sanded the acrylic to allow the spray paint to adhere better, then painted with a matte black spraypaint: http://imgur.com/aCDLtvR.jpg http://imgur.com/XIVKRMa.jpg Now that it's all done, I wired everything back up and enjoyed the light show (thanks to the NZXT Hue+): http://imgur.com/iD3dwHX.jpg http://imgur.com/qkGqhoB.jpg
  3. I love this case sooooo much...i'm willing to do extra hours just so i could buy this case... Everything about this case is perfect except : 1. PSU Shroud is open and we could see all the wires in the front.. 2. There is not even a slight gap between bottom of MOBO and the PSU Shroud.. The second one i can deal with it by routing it differently or by making a small holes in PSU shroud.. But the PSU shroud extension should have been given for this case, atleast as an optional accessory... I've never registered for a forum before...But i love this case sooo much & just to requesting corsair i've joined this forum.. Please corsair, requesting you to consider providing an additional PSU shroud as an accessory to cover up that gap in the front.. Thanks, Shyam
  4. The Crystal Series 570X RGB tempered glass chassis launched last year to much critical acclaim for its open design that puts everything in your build within view. We’re introducing a new PSU shroud cover plate that allows you to hide away the cables coming from your power supply! Unboxing the shroud cover, you'll find the shroud cover plate, and some screws. Installation of the shroud cover is simple. 1. Remove the tempered glass side panel so you can access the internals of the chassis, we also recommend that you remove your graphics card 2. Ensure that there aren’t any large cables or other items blocking the opening of the 570X RGB’s PSU shroud 3. Hold the shroud cover in place inside of the PSU shroud, lining the top screw holes on the shroud and shroud cover 4. Secure the shroud cover with the included screws 5. Adjust angle of the shroud cover as necessary for a clean look And that’s it! You can also take off both side glass panels to make it a bit easier to install to line things up just right. The shroud cover is available now and allows you to cap off the PSU shroud if that’s the look you’re going for in your build.
