Project Ethereal (Formerly "Unnamed")



-----

I would like to welcome you to my first scratch build.
I needed a PC case for my first PC build so I designed a small, compact yet elegant PC case.

Specs:
CPU: i5 2400
Ram: Kingston Hyper-X 8 GB (4x2)
GPU: ATI Radeon HD 6870
MB: ASRock Z68 Pro-3M
And some old hdd's

I live in Minas, Riau, Indonesia, in a forest -____- Literally
So I don't have alot of Materials and tools to choose from.
I will be primarily using plywood
And I MIGHT not have alot of free time, so you might not hear from me often.


The current status of my PC (Taken with phone)


Yep, This is my backyard (They're eating guavas, Again, I live in the middle of a jungle )

DESIGN

I wanted to get as small and compact as possible yet have room for more HDD's and a few upgrades.

The pictures should explain everything.





LET IT BEGIN


The GPU (I took off the faceplate)


I started taking off the metal thing on the side for mounting (What the hell is it called? )


Here it is without the thing


ASRock


It clearly says, Z68 Pro-3M


I already installed the CPU that's the generic Intel CPU Fan


The Wifi I'm using, Apple's AR5BXB72


Using tape to... Well, make it stick


My Arsenal of Hard Drives Total of 1 TB and 700 GB


The Hyper-X Ram sticks


Hyper-X Mounted


The SATA cables, need to be one color, going to paint them black soon

Thats it for tonight, Im gonna hit the sack, its 12 AM here, got school, need to wake up at 6 -_-
