Default Think think think

Case is completly de-assembled
Cut holes are marked
Materials are ordered

Mistakes :
1) This is going to take a lot of time. The work itself will be easy, this is cuttin' & paintin' & assembly : estimated 5 to 6 hours (drying time not included) ... the planning & measuring will take a whole lot more of my time. And i'm enjoying this, ... i like to take my time. Hopefully i don't have to wait too long for the parts or it won't be ready at the end of september
2) I wanted to make it cheap ... the listed items will cost around 400 EUR ... a hardcano & baybus included. I included the last two items to make absolute sure it won't make too much noise. Secondly i want to test the influence of the seperate fans. 400EUR is not cheap, i could buy a very nice case for such money ... but not as good as mine ... hopefully the result will look good too.
3) Colorsceme sucks. I'll make the inside completly black, and the outside yellow

forgot to mention PSU : Antec 350W
forgot to mention : there is no going back :grin:

Could have bought a VERY nice case for that, probably tree times better looking. Oh well, i already had some of the stuff floating around ... and i'm having plenty of construction fun.
If more time i could have done the baybus myself, i could have looked more carefully around to choose cheapest materials, ... but ...

I'm not going to make any article at all, i'm happy sittin' here in this thread. Pictures will follow someday when i start cuttin' the ***** up.

EDIT : *lower* price, thanks to friendly people at Tones

Done cuttin' & drillin', took 45' to completly ruin the case. Should have worn some kinda ear protection, all i hear is a high pitched "tuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu uuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu" ...
Bummer, very smal slip cracked a "support-pole of the frame" .. dunno how i'm going to fix it to strenghten the case sufficiently
First thought is special glue and bolting the plexi boards to it. Or better : bolting some alu - small - strips to it.

Air flow will be around 101 CFM IN vs. 113 CFM OUT. Maybe i shouldn't care about the noise now since i'm quite deaf atm.

Tomorrow some pictures maybe.
