led drill guide placement

Post by caffeinatedsoap » Fri Mar 01, 2019 8:33 pm

I recently started on my CS build and noticed it came with a little drill template for the leds. I've stared at the case and it for a bit, moving it around here and there, but honestly I'm not sure where I should put it to line up the holes the best.

Anyone got some pictures of the led drill guide placement?

If you're like me and think you're too good for read before posting posts, I found this in this in the read before posting post.

Also if you think you have the guide lined up, you probably don't.

This is how I do it. I put a piece of double sided transparent tape on the top, put the drill guide where I want it, and then just drill the holes right through it. Works fine. For reference, here is where you want the guide to sit. I only know because I’ve built so many. The biggest thing is you want it flush to the case or the holes will be diagonal. Check and recheck.

The original guide for the led holes was for the first cso that had bulbs. When he switched to the built in low profile leds, the holes needed to go down some as they’re directly on the board.
