Awesome shroud you got there! You need to do a metal working guide once you're done

Thanks.

Here's my aluminum working guide:
  • Cut flat/bar stock with a chop/miter saw
  • Cut sheets with a router guided by a template or straightedge
  • Drill holes with a drill press and invest in a self-centering vise
  • Don't waste your time reading my boring project logs, read Attila's instead.

Next up is to cut the front sheet.




In order to cut-out all of the openings for the 5.25-inch drives accurately, a custom router template is required. I used .5x1-inch u-channel and .25x1.25-inch flat bar to frame the openings on .5-inch particle board.




The aluminum bits guided my flush trimming router bit.




The aluminum bits were removed and the particle board template was used to cut the .10-inch thick aluminum sheet.






Now I just need to square all of the corners and cut to width. Ugh.

"Life" had gotten in the way of this project for a few weeks, but I've managed to fabricate the inner and outer sheets of the front panel. It took me 5 hours to square-off all of the inside corners.

I remember the render threads for this in the EVGA forum. Glad to see it's finally coming to life

I bolted the 5.25-inch drive rail assemblies to the front inner sheet.






Note how the extra deep rails will completely hide the drives and cables.






Another design benefit of the front air duct is hiding all of the mounting hardware.
