I like what you came up with, but you should change it like Attila mentioned.
I think the best setup would be grooves like you made on the back. You could run them in a gentle arc all the way up to the plug. Plug into the mobo, then stuff the wires in their slots.
This would also help with the odd pins that have 2 wires running to them.



Hell, you could get artsy-fartsy with the wire curve too. If you did it as a 2 part setup, you could change the top one to arc to wherever (in the case of changing mobos. -caffeine just kicked in, excuse babble.)

Dude, your messing with my "show teaser" plan





All is prepped and planned. Just need to know what mobo I will use, so I can input the final measurements:P
This part consist of 4 pieces

Edit,

There will be no "gentle arcs"! I like hard and clear lines :P

And BAM. I can pass the flame torch to you, my friend. You take the cake here with 3D printing. FDM, I'm certain. You should get some SLA or SLS goin' on...those are perrrty (especially with the clear-ish tint).

Although...Inventer? Really? *patooey!*

We also have SLA at school, but SLS it too expensive for my account, since i would have to have that made by an external company, and i dont have THAT much cash Would be neat though. The technology is friggin amazing!
But for now i will just have to do with the "normal" 3d prints :P
Edit:
And I use inventor beacuse thats the program the schools tells us to use :/ Everything we send must be in inventor format.. Trust me, there have been some rebellions about it too

RAGE UPDATE!

Finished a bunch of 3d parts that i needed printed for testing a few days ago. Went to the school monday only to find out that some IDIOT had started two prints that would each take 16 hours = no printing time for me until tuesday.
I then came back yesterday evening only to discover THAT HE HAD FRIGGIN BROKEN THE MACHINE!!!
To all luck they already called a repair guy that should come all the way from sweeden... If everything went well, the machine should be up and running now, but i have to drive out to the school after work to check

Furthermore, a package i have been waiting on from germany have been hugely delayd, so these are a few of the reasons why things are going so slow on this.

On a brighter note, i just bought myself a Corsair AX 1200 powersupply, and might get a hold of a bulldozer setup for this thing!

Stay tuned, i hope to update within a week

Easy now - watch your blood pressure. Rage and anger can only cause bad case modding, so settle down and - eh... look at the nice weather we have outside today! ;D

I thought you updated with a part. On the plus side, I doubt you ever see that guy again.
...Unless he's one of those clods who keeps screwing stuff up until you have to kick him out. If that's the case, he will be hovering over the repairman waiting for him to finish.

Well... My print is in line, and should be done tomorrow

It will then have to get into acid for a few hours (10+) and then dry. Then I can fit in the things I want to test

Sorry to disappoint you :P

Print done!!! Could not wait to get off at work and pick this up I had to drive out to the school this morning to start it up beacuse I did not trust that the guy before me had startet the next print in line, and I was right



But first of all, I would like to introduce my new psu for this build! Got this one unused from a mate! This puppy should provide plenty of power for the components that will go in, and I highly doubt that I will EVER max it out lol!



Now this is the "not so pritty" part that I want to do something too. Even if sleeved this IMO looks bad.



A thing that I am not to fond of with the case is the round holes in the back and inside. Its a square case, so it need square parts :P



Again, to show the plugs.



But now for the fun stuff!!! Cant tell you how glad I was to see this:P



Parts as they looked in the machine. You can clearly see the brown stuff that is the support material, and the actual "white" stuff that is the plastic.



I printed 6 parts that would tell me if I had all the measurements correct.



Just to show the scale of the parts, here is a picture of some of the stuff. You can see that the printer prints 4 layers per milimeter!



After breaking off the support material, the parts are ready for use! These were easy, but most of the other parts will under normal circumstances need to be put into an acid bath for 10 hours or so.



The two plates you saw before will be put together and mounted here. I need to finish the design and print two more. I have a certain plan to pimp these up further They simply "click" together which is very usefull



And a shot from the inside.



This is the most important part, so let me show you how I want it to work.
The plan is to take the plugs for the psu, and mount them in this part.



To hold the peices in place, I made a part looking like this to "clamp" into the plug.



This basicly works by keeping the plug pressed up against the other side, where it is fastened in a 1 mm hole as you can see on the pwnzor paint drawing above. The blue part is the "clamp" and the green is the main plug. The black is of course the 8 pin GFX plug that goes into the psu.



This is the place where the clamp goes in, after the 8 pins have been insertet.



And this is how it looks insertet. I can tell you that it will NEVER come out.. And how do I know this? Beacuse this is a test piece, and I need to get that plug out again



And last but not least, This is a preview of how it will look on the psu itself. Please note that this is not how the final version will look! Final version is much bigger, much smarter, and very clever if I have to say it myself

Just need to go back and readjust the tolerances on the drawing to make some more room for the plugs. They were not exactly easy to get inthere

Hope you enjoyd this update! Stay tuned for the finished part soon

Just a minor question but are you planning on making a 'plug' for the USB and other ports on the front of the case?

Thank you alain-s! Neither can I lol
Right now I stand between if i should drive out to the school tomorrow and start the final print, or if I should wait a few days and see if I come up with changes for the design. I think I will use an hour more on it tonight to see if anything pops in, and if not, print Guess the print should take 8 to 16 hours

If I understand your question correct then yes

Everything wire related will be done in this way to hide them best posible

If you come up with a solution to hide the front USB and Firewire ports when not in use I'd be interested in how you do it. It's a pity they didn't make the plastic internals of the ports in black rather than white which would have helped.

I just went trough your log, and I have to say that I'm very impressed by your designs and ideas. I especially like the pump mount on the radiator.

If we are thinking about the same thing, then I am already working on a cover for it, but it is quite low priority at the moment:P The part I will print tomorrow have gotten all the attention lately
