About the project:
When the time has come for a new cabinet. Enclosure will be built from scratch and look to be a fairly common tower, but with a somewhat spessiel front. In front will be mounted two 120mm fans and the pattern you see in the sketch above shall spit out. Inside I will divide the cabinet into two chambers. In the bottom will be the power supply and hard drives and put in the upper chamber will you find the rest of the parts. As the distinction between the chamber should I try to create an arc that you can see in the picture below. A window will be placed in one side door.
External dimensions of the box is: 56 x 54 x 24.5 cm

A mod'd TJ07 or Lian Li v2000 would do the job, but it will be interesting to see what a custom result would look like :).
I have taken MFD disc and got cut up most of the plates. Have used the 16mm thick plates and screws 3mm, MDF'en tend to stretch so it is important to drilling in the disc before it will screw it up.
Plates I had was to big for that Climb saga was too little, when I had to jack up the saga:
This lowered the screws:
Here is the first wall ready to be tightened:
Now the front and bakplate in place:
And here the top and bottom in place:
Then it was time for a new update, have been cut to the motherboard tray. And the driver to think out a smart solution for hiding the cables under the motherboard tray. Will have at least possible with cables visible.
Here, I marked where to cut:
Right after cutting:
Used the Dremel and file to get a finer result:
And here I am finished:
Sorry bad pictures, Tite was a little light, where I drove on.
The second is on the program now is cutting the backplate and solutions for cable pulling.
Now, I've been cutting holes for motherboard tray and PSU'en. But missing some Scrub even before I'm satisfied: wee:
Have also been made four round cabinet feet, but has not been refurbished yet these either. It is made in the course of the weekend I think:)
Marked and cutting:
How was it:
Has been raised and motherboard tray with a 16mm so I can fit all the cables under which:
This motherboard has the board come up:
Have also created holes for PSU'en:
To create cabinet feet I used a hole-saw at 55mm:
These should be repaired part before they are finished:)
As you saw in the previous update, I have cut out four rounds of cabinet feet, now is the polished finish :)
The first thing I did was to attach all the feet of a bolt and mounted it on the drill:
I took the polish paper (P150) in hand and started the machine, is the result:
After that I took and polished edge that will stand on the table, so that it was round and nice:
Should have cleaned several parts of the cabinet for the weekend, so stay tuned! :)
What I have done is to assemble the cabinet feet.
May decrease the screws a bit:
And here are the results:
Thanks for comment! :)
After a long pause on the project and updates I'm going with a new update now. Has mount motherboard tray.
Raised motherboard tray with a couple of lists:
Next on the list now is the front:
When I got started on the front and is satisfied with the results so far:)
Markings before cutting begins:
There are holes to dvd burner, etc.. cut out:
The fan who will be at the bottom is ground out and the floor space:
Finished cut out and ready for milling:
Purchased with some well case from Lian Li that I should have in front:
Thanks to the sponsors!
Have been working on with the front now, the overall profile of the second plate and arranged holes for the fan. Had to cheat a little by inserting a thin plywood plate behind the hole. It was difficult to spit out the profile of the car, then took to sawing out the hole with a jigsaw first, and then made round edges with a cutter.
End chat, here are some pictures:)
The first thing that was done was to cut out the hole with a jigsaw:
In the back I attached a plywood plate, so that not only is a hole there, but the mounting of the fan:
Drill holes for the fans:
Used the cutter to make round edges, just like on the second disc:
Here I have constructed both records:
And here I tried with only one disc in fornt:
Here is the result:
Thanks to the sponsors!
I like what I'm seeing so far! :Thumb
Three is not the best in terms of heat, but has gone just fine on my previous project.
Thank you for your comments! :)
This project is looking to be very cool.
Yes, right. It will be a heavy case.
Very nice work :thumb
Looks awesome!!! =)
Got the package from Roccat a few days ago, here are some pictures of the contents :)
Content; Roccat Kone, Roccat Taito and some small stash :)
Now I wait for a little more hardware so that I can fit the cables are hidden. Shall also within the near future to put in place the disc in the middle of the chassis and a suspension for optical devices.
Awesome mouse m8
Update # 10 - Middle plate and the construction of 5 1 / 4 "bay
Now I finally have built some of the cabinet again
What has been done is mounted middle plate and made a 5 1 / 4 "bay in the top. Made a plate behind this bay'en to hide the cables as much as possible.
Middle plate mounted over PSUen:
5 1 / 4 "bay'en:
Results from the present work:
Have tried the grill from Mntech now:
Thanks, Delusion77 :)
Aawww man soooo nice! Really impressed so far. It looks near perfect so far, but not boring, keep it up!
Update: The design of the front!
In recent days I have been doing the front, is not so much that remains there now, so hope to be finished during the week.
Have hidden fan control and made a hole on the tray on the DVD burner. Power button is also in place:)
Marking the power button:
Used a 20mm borr:
Fan Control, I have hidden in the front, so that only the buttons appear. Did a little test first to see how it was:
In place of the faceplate:
Regretted a bit that I cut out the hole to 5 1 / 4 "bayen in front, then took the team to a record as I plugged the hole with:
There, I have now made a hole to the DVD tray and mounted the fan control:
Gets a little filler and sanding around the new disc, to get a good result:
Have also been installed in 5 DVD burners 1 / 4 "bayen:
In addition, to this I have lowered the one grill a little down in the plate:
The result so far:
There are a few more updater throughout the week, so just go with:)
Update: The package from Enermax has arrived!
When the package comes from Enermax the house, fun me some new hardware:) guess that the package from Gigabyte comes in the course of next week, so I can start with the hiding of cables. It looks almost like I'm going to have to extend a few wires, but we later:)
The package from Enermax contained:
- Enermax Revolution85 + 1050 Watt
- 4 pcs Apollish Silver fans
- Velcro for fastening cables
Enermax Revolution85 + 1050 Watts:
The cables that came with:
Apollish Silver fans:
Leds on the fans:
The fans come with a separate button to turn off the leds, and in addition, the temperature sensor:
Tested the fans by comparing the light but a Mist fan, found unfortunately no fan of white leds:
Looks very good...Do you know when your going to be finished?
Are unsure of when I'm finished, it will display the time:)
Will paint the chassis in these colors:
What do you think about it?
