    i started a new project, but , as you can see, the project is nameless

    perspex cubes

    i had create 2 types of cubes
    1. 20X20X20 (visible)
    2.16X16X20 (hidden, it's will be inside the Alu profile)

    [​IMG]

    the visible cube
    [​IMG]

    and the hidden cube

    the result that i want to get is like this:

    looks like it could turn out to be a really nice HTPC, one thing, your intial drawings for this state the height to be 80cm.... im really hoping thats a typo and its 80mm, but then i look and all of your other measurements are in cm aswell.... the length for example is 240cm... thats longer than me..??!!?!!??!

    I like the design. Nice sketchup work, looks like you've planned it well and everything will fit nicely. I'm following this one :thumb:

    Make sure you know where the fans for the PSU are, what kind of cooling the hard drive will have and what cooler you are putting on the CPU.

    Just a warning from someone who's done a custom SFF before :)

    I love the design but I'm not too hot on the colour scheme. I kind of like the colour in your sketchup and the yellow is great but I'm not sure about the blue. Oh well I'm sure you'll make it look great. :)

    Thank's for the commets guys.. :)

    #bindibadgi : the PSU fan is on the rear panel of the case
    about the HDD, i dont know yet, maybe it's will be a fan on the top of the case, some kind of HDD coller ( i hope the 80 MM intake fan on the front panel will be enough)

    in theoretical method, i didnt to be worry about heat in this case
    the core heat output is just 2.5W (40MM fan - stock, and i bought Zalman sink to make it more quiet .
    I'll upload some pics of the MB in the next update.

    #neji : the theme of the case include ALU in natural color, and yellow perspex,
    please, dont relate to the color on the sketch .

    Very, very nice design.

    Why don't you use a PicoPSU 120W? It will save you a LOT of space. Also, you could use a laptop dvd drive, saves some space too.
