konda has yet to learn the way of the Dremel
Project MZ

Hello!

Iíll keep the introduction brief. For the past few years now Iíve wanted to design and build my own PC case. This has led to a number of unfinished plans and sketches as Iíve always found something in the plans that I want to do, after all, in a different way. But now Iíve finally come up with designs which Iím somewhat satisfied with and have enough spare time that I can actually build the first one.

Plans for the case:

- Inverted mATX
- Roughly 42x42x27cm
- Frame and exterior from wood
- Painted black
- Top & side windows
- 2x180mm @ front
- 2x5.25Ē behind the case
- Hardware from the current system: 2500K, R9-290, IV Gene-Z, etcÖ
- Watercooling (eventually)

What to expect: Mix of this old, unfinished sketch and S3.


Had some leftover 2x4ís in the garage that I sawed to ~2x2xXcm pieces. These will make the frame of the case.


After quick sanding I clued the first pieces together.


Then it was time to chisel slots for the 5.25Ē devices.


More sanding.


Test fit. Almost there.


And that was it for the first post. The frame is currently about halfway done, few more joints to go.

Time for an update.

Top and bottom parts of the frame done...


...and joined together.


Mobo tray will be held in place with the help of these threaded inserts.



This is how the frame looks like with all the inner pieces in place and after sanding off the first round of body filler.
