Update 8! Been working on and off this week on the case. I got a few more packages this week! I finally got my copper. It's more flexible than I thought. Also got a hawt package! Contains Intel G0 SLACR Q6600, 2x 2gb DDR2 1000 and a Gigabyte GA-X38-DS4. Close up of the X38 sweetness. Cut out a triangle of copper for the front of the case. I've been trying to figure out how to attach it to the aluminum without screwing it. The best I came up with is to use epoxy. I tried to solder it and super glue, but neither of them held. Since the copper is so soft, I was afraid that I would put a dent in it while drilling the holes for the buttons. So when drilling, I put a 1/4" piece of wood on top of it and drill through that first, then through the copper, then the aluminum. It drilled perfectly with the wood on top. Buttons in place. Front with the upper copper bit placed. Here's the dvd drive. It's a slim slot loading drive. Got it cheap off Ebay. also had to buy 2 adapters; one to go from the 50 pin JAE to normal IDE + 3 pin power connector and another to convert to USB. Made a little jig type device to facilitate the bending of the Aluminum for the drive case. All nice and bent. I did some more work on it... but I seemed to have forgotten to take pics. I'll toss them up with the next update. I cut and sized all of the pieces for the mobo "tray" All put together. Using an old Dell mobo as a template for where to drill the holes for the standoffs. Mobo tray in place, but not attached to the frame yet. I finished the reservoir. I bought two pieces of 1/16" thick rubber at the hardware store, cut them out in a circle, then super glued them to the aluminum top and bottom. Then I drilled two holes on the top of the reservoir for the for the barbs. The reason they're both on the top is because the reservoir will sit on its side. I still need to make the stand out of plexi. Leak testing the res, seems to work great. No leaks! And that's where I stopped tonight. More work to be done this weekend!
