    Splitlip's PSU mod

    No hints as to what the final product is going to be like here.

    I started off with some supplies:


    Some nice tin snips, some self adhesive smooth surface velcro, some plaster for Smear, and:

    A nice big 36"x24" piece of aluminum.

    Here's the psu in question, the same one as MI's prize, an Ultra X-finity 550W Black Psu:

    Here's my overabundance of planning that is customary for my mods:


    Edit: Last image removed, too many hints.

    Attempt #1
    Using measurements from online: 4x7x9 a.k.a. HUGE
    Template on metal

    Template cut out

    Template Cut down

    And final


    Bent into a nice shell.

    Size test:

    Bleh. Way too big. Good thing I splurged on a lot of metal.

    I took actual measurements this time lol.
    Some more planning:


    Template on metal:

    Lost my intermediate photo (aka "and BOOM" hehe tribal)
    And done, again:



    And a very nice fit this time around:

    Of course those edges will be cleaned up.

    My revolutionary wire routing system (patent pending).
    How it works is the wires go up into the grooves, then turn and get caught wherever I want them. This way I can have what I want, where I want it.
    Practice version:


    Done onto shell:


    And Installed:


    With a bit of velcro:
    Voila!


    Stay tuned! I have many more updates up and coming! I already have a lot done, since I had an easy week (HSPA testing so my teachers were required to give us a break, muahahahahhaha). I've made 2 nice trips to Home Depot (read Home of Pot, with a little french translation), and I've got plenty more things to both get done and update you all on.

    make sure you sand them edges down, dont want the PSU wires to get cut up, .

    Im still trying to figure out what you are doing too, oh well i'm sure i'll find out soon enough.

    Masika is 100% correct. Please don't cut those beautiful cables. Even if this is just a test fit, please, please, don't cut the cables. Happy Modding to ya with that modded power supply.

    Lol. They'll be fine. Actually, despite how annoying these cables are, they're tough as hell. I couldn't get through them without a Dremel. They only got dinks in them from the test fit, but at this point they're covered in rubber cement and hammered flat, as to not do any damage to my fingers more importantly. <- woot for run-ons.

    Bolted it down to my case to take some measurements and make more plans.:

    I cut a fan hole for the bottom of the psu:


    Don't worry, I'll clean up those edges.
    To see all of the work done on the case, see my Worklog
