    I've been tired of the design on my Raidmax case for a long time now, and it's time to do something with it.

    Sorry for my english, I hope it's understandable. :)

    This was my almost standard Raidmax 868 case for about a year ago:

    Then the evolution:

    The last months it has just looked like crap.

    The Plans

    Sketchup of the case:

    This will hopefully be a case with good cooling and with clean design.

    Then to the work

    Of course I need my computer during the project.

    Some shopping done 2 steelplates and some other stuff.

    I got 3x120mm fangrills for free from www.hcs-electronics.no.
    Thanks to them. :thumbup:


    Front and back ready for cutting:

    If you don't have the proper tool, you have to improvise. :)

    The front is to short. :duh:
    I'm sure i will find a solution.

    It's hard to explain, but easy to do.
    I'm sorry, you just have to wait and see. :)

    heh, it's a quite common name in Norway, and i can understand wy it's not common in Denmark, it sounds strange in danish.^^


    The tilted motherboard has many functions:

    - Looks good
    - Big space at the back to hide wires etc
    - The graphic-card si then placed in the middel of the airflow

    Oh man, I would like flip the mobo to get the cpu underneath and the vga on top, that way WITH the leaning motherboard you will see the beautifull side (fan-side) of your vga? pimp up your vga for that ofcourse..

    Or is to big of a hassle to change plans/sides?

    That would have looked nice, but first I have to figure out the connections to the mainboard. If I find a practical solution, I may do it.
     
  18. I see what I like and I like what I see ;)! This is what Raidmax SHOULD be proudcing. And those gold fitting look the shiznit! :thumb:

    The harddisk will be attached here with some black plexi

    I'm not sure where I will put the radiator yet.
    This position is not the best for the airflow, but with 2 fans on the radiator I think it will do ok.

    This have to be black.

    [​IMG]
    I think I must make a bigger window in the sidepanel.


    [​IMG]
    Should I do someting like this?
    Cut out the marked areas and put som black plexi behind?
