    YAIBA TO ALL! today a lot of work, I leave the rear part suspended to focus on the front, I make a panel of solid recycled steel from my HP desktop, the metal structure of these old houses is really impressive solid and thick sheet metal, the empty case already has its considerable weight.
    here it is

    [​IMG]

    to install the 360 mm radiator I need supports but at the same time I need to strengthen the structure, let's start ..

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    measurement control and positioning ...

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    now the most interesting part

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    I finish with precision files always checking the measurements

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    I am very satisfied with the result considering that I have no specific equipment and I made everything with basic tools
    and if I can do it, anyone can do it. :)

    check that everything concludes.

    [​IMG]

    fastening with rivets, I always check the measurements

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    the structure is now much more solid and stable.

    to be continued---

    a lot of work today ...
    processing of the tray, very important as it is an integral part of the structure

    [​IMG]

    technical dimensions tests

    [​IMG]

    positioning of the bracket that will fix the inno3d RTX2060super TWIN X2 video card vertically, here helps me coolermaster who sends me a special bracket designed for his houses but that is fine for what I need

    but it's not over I have to find a way to fix it firmly to the panels.

    [​IMG]

    motherboard placement and holes

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    I have an envelope full of spacers I always take them apart before I get rid of an old case

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    creation of the hole on the tray to facilitate the installation of the fixing plate for the CPU waterblock

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    once you have decided what to do, prepare all the holes for the gpu support bracket

    after taking the measurements well 3 times I proceed
    I practice very small holes

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    one points it as a cutter and patiently floods all the holes connecting them creating a groove

    [​IMG]

    I help myself with a precision file (one of my best purchases)

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    perfect..

    it is not yet finished all the tray bloggo must still be well worked .. and the panels made previously must be revised (they are too large)

    not all parts can be cut in the same way, generally I use a motorsaw dremel, but I also use a normal hacksaw and sometimes a sharp hook with which I engrave the plexiglass up to cut it, in some cases I use a "rasp" wood file to consume the excess one and then I finish with 220 sand paper.
