Update!

Done quite a bit recently:

Started sleeving the PSU cabling:









And I've made some progress on the case and custom PSU housing:

Made holes in the frame for the video connector of the 7" screen, power cord and PSU on/off switch:


Cut out a big hole in the center of the frame so the psu wiring can go upwards:


And I've finished the PSU cover with hexmesh:



Pictures make the mesh look mess(h)y at the corners, no idea why, looks better irl.

Installed BitsPower valve:




That's it for now

Impressive work, quite refreshing after the miriad CNC-ed rigs that's doing the rounds nowadays - I like :flowers:

Thanks Gotta love hand-tools, using them is time consuming, but the result is usually really nice. I love CNC build's but I think it's even cooler when something hand build has CNC looks.

Great update!
The PSU enlcosure looks great!
Also excellent work on those cuts for buttons / wiring, they are so close to the borders!

Are you going to paint the washer where the valve is? A small detail hehe

Thanks for the compliments I've re-arranged the fittings, now they go lower to the bottom of the case and because of that the washers aren't needed anymore.

Update!

I continued on the right backside, I allready made another panel for this, but it doesn't have ventilation holes and didn't look right tbh, so I made a new backside, with ventilation holes:

The old part:


And the new part I made:

Cut some profiles to size:




And cut a piece of hexmesh to size:


How it's mounted in the case:

Me likely. The way you've got the bottom angled really makes it stand out And the accents with lighting and mesh just adds to it all. Keep it up

Another small update, I got some new parts today:

- Cooler Master Turbine Master Mach 0.8 120mm - 800RPM
- Xigmatek XOF-F1251 120mm Fan - 1400RPM
- Mainboard Screw/Schroeven Kit Black
- EK-RAM Dominator X4 - Acetal + EN Nickel

Either one of the fans will serve as the psu fan, today I fitted the Coolermaster to see how it looks:

Not sure on the fan on the case, might replace it with the Xigmatek (which is white)

Haven't done much modding lately, hectic times atm with our little boy I did however finish the mesh panels for the back and front of the case:

These are the 2 panels for the back:


This one is for the left front, the seams are filled with 2 component metal glue and sanded to a smooth finish, once painted the seams are invisible:

And this is where it will be placed in the front of the case:

I've still not tried this with angle bars, you have done this method perfectly & the lighter scale shows how small that piece is, impressive.

Thanks guys

The angles were a pain to make, I don't really have the proper tools to get the angles exacly 100% correct. (just a hacksaw and some files) It's easy to file off too much material and messing up the piece. But all and all I'm quite happy with the results

Update!

Allow me to present a World Exlusive: The Difrax Milk Cooling System



And here are some overview pics of the case: (My camera screwed up so the pics have a blue hue..no idea why..)

Front:


Back:




Left side without sidepanel:


In the upright part of the case I mad a subframe out of a strip of aluminum. I've bend it in a square and mounted the ledstrips on it. The leds w will light the plexiglass strips in the case:







To controll the ledstrips I bought a RGB Ledcontroller with remote from Ebay:


Next update will contain PC hardware
