    Hi, I'm starting the same time my next project.

    It is a converted Coolermaster CM 690th.
    Many thanks to
    Cooler Master that I have the case made ​​available.

    The name is the motto.

    Here is an example picture of what it means.

    [​IMG]

    So actually the case remains in its original condition. I cut hald many holes in, so that one sees on the hardware.

    I do sometimes a small list of what is planned now to this:
    • Case cut back on eck, as well as a fan is halved, also see so the CPU cooler is also open.
    • A Ram bar is cut in half, but nothing can happen that the contacts are worn, so that only the PCB inside plugged
    • with a graphics card the same thing happens.
    • A HDD is also tuned to believe.
    • Up front will be installed a DVD drive that also gets a cut. Whether this is supposed to work yet is still unclear. If not, we are including a second installed that will go away.
    • I want to cut the ATX cable by which you can see the cross section of the cable bundle. I will then versichen covered a 2nd to install. possibly laterally from the connector. If necessary, solder as well, although I am not the friend of them.
    • what I will do more then I decide if I fall over her. Maybe one of you have come so good tips.
    Here are some pictures of the untouched state.

    Today I finally started with the "Cross-Section" Case.
    First, I've spent half an Creppband role to figure out where I cut holes that clean: D

    Then it was fate. First of coarse with the hacksaw, and then continues with the separating grinder. I also made a movie that I'm ready but not until tomorrow.
    Before the question comes on ... the power supply gets a perspex paneling.

    In the front hole is then later a drive that is also open. This should also work then.

    I really like the idea... Now, let's see how you do it...For now, I can't say if it is going to be epic or disappointing, because the challenge is high I think

    Today was not the case further, but in something which is then installed.

    Here, the victim of a defect 8800GTX ...

    [​IMG]



    I am about the only thing like time with the angle grinder ago :dremel:
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    That was cut out after it ... not very nice :rolleyes:

    [​IMG]

    ...first disassembled, all cleaned and filed.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    The other cover was indeed such an ugly stickers on it. I did not get off. But I was still a 2nd defective 8800GTX lying around. So from then stole the cover.

    [​IMG]

    To create later in the motherboard is not shorted, I sanded the pins on the PCB.

    [​IMG]

    So, that's it again.

    I can't wait to see how you get that 8800GTX to work [sarcasm].

    I love the unique concept. I'll definitely be following this one.
    So where are you from in lower Bavaria? Munchen?

    Munich is Upper Bavaria ;) I am more near Straubing, "Simbach bei Landau" is the name of village.

    I will try to make it look so the graphics card still works, by which I solder a cable from the onboard graphics with the connection of the 8800GTX

    Today I thought I once made ​​the next cut. Since the graphics card is below the upper section they are seen only bad.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Therefore, I will later make a cut.
    This was the first idea, but to me not so liked...

    [​IMG]

    ...so I've from this picture...

    [​IMG]

    ...and this...

    [​IMG]

    ...the here done with a photo editing program. Was haltet ihr davon?

    [​IMG]

    Then I taped a second cut.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    In the top is a HDD bay. I would edit a HDD and poke it in

    [​IMG]


    So, what do you think fits ... so? Do you have any other suggestions?
