Gambo has yet to learn the way of the Dremel
2&˝

I everyone!
This will be my first build here, as it was my first scratch/finished build ever.
I made it earlier this year. Hope you like it.


Simple concept, motherboard on top, psu and storage at bottom.




TFX power supply, cage for 3 HDD and a sliding tray





of to the building!

main panel







HDD bay - Made some changes on the original concept. The 3 were a bit too tight on the case, so I took 1 out, raised them a bit to have more clearance and put an SSD on top.






SSD and some old HDDs for testing.




motherboard tray













structure


Hardware in







Front fan holder




silicone foam for less vibration






bottom backplate.






the right hole will have mesh covering...



and thats it for now. hope you all like it.
will post the rest soon.

Hi there. Nice start and it's another mini ITX, so I approve

What will you be using this system for, seeing that you're not using a dedicated GFX-card?

thanks guys.

the PC is for my father, so it doesn´t need that much power.
(although he already played COD5 in it and it managed. )

the idea was really "compact" and "sober"

I'll post lot more later tonight

Another mini-ITX build Seems to be a surge in them all of a sudden and they're all awesome The sliding tray is perfect for such a small build knowing how fiddly they can be

saying it isn't inspired by it, would be a lie. I love the small Lian-Li, though this way fits me better.

Slim-Sata adapter






sleeved and masked CPU fan.


B-magic!



PSU






cut all the wires to a more suitable lenght




more sleeving








2nd ODD holder, this time with riveted pieces instead of bending 1 whole piece.














































more to come...

I love their small cases too, impressive metalwork skills going on there I must say.

Keep up with the updates.

I'm mightily impressed with your metal work and brilliant paint job. Look's like it came straight out of a factory.

You say this is your first time working with metal. That makes it all the more impressive. Keep up the great work and I will be watching with interest .

Wow. I'm looking to build a compact low-profile HTPC, and if you don't mind me saying this has given me some inspiration and a few ideas that I think I might well pinch!

Brilliant job on the sleeving and cable management.

Haha, I like the comparison with the HDD. I didn't think the case would be that small .
