    How to make BENCH CASE from an old ATX

    My earlier threads in this forum was 2x CORSAİR 900 D (fulltower)an 800D ,an Level 10 GT,
    TJ O7 and a JUMBO CASE…all fulltowers

    This time a small case and a fast mod at weekend..

    My friend atik wanted a smal bench case ,and not to spend Money.
    only with products ready in the kitchen.

    we used an old cheap atx case


    [​IMG]

    We planned what to do and what kind of a bench.

    Then we have overthrowed the case


    [​IMG]


    Emptied the case..

    I had planned watercooling with a 360 rad ,but he wanted to use his 480 XSPC rad.

    480 Rad was greater than the case.and As this was not enough he wanted to use as push-pull and with dobble fan shroud

    I made a front cover to the case for 480 rad.
    .but as an unusual fun shroud. , it was 60(120/2) +120 +120 +60(120/2)

    And he wants the pump and reservoir outside of the case , like 480 Rad.

    I made a tower for reservoir and pump at the side of the case, to use a tube reservoir 250 mm..

    but he used a mini xspc reservoir at beginning.but he promised me to buy a 250 mm.

    And mounted to the case

    [​IMG]

    But a new request from my frend. He wants to use DWD player and a fan controller at the front..

    A new front cover for dwd player,fan controller and 480 rad..

    I did all wrong requests of my friend…


    [​IMG]

    We wanted to mount the MB tray on the side door of ATX , and open it with a gas spring arm.


    [​IMG]

    But the side door of the case was too thin.for a gas spring arm.. ı made a 5 mm thick Alu side cover with 2 hinges.

    [​IMG][/IMG]

    Today frozen cpu and mnpc uses it…on their new experiment case..

    [​IMG]

    ı used the same gas spring arm on my JUMBO case too.
    To open the upper part of the case.

    :lol: Hey, I know that rig.
    Towers converted to benches seem to be trending, but you have put a lot more care and effort into yours. It should turn out pretty cool.:D

    What was wrong at this case:

    Using an 480 rad instead of 360.
    instead an 360 rad mounted at the inside of the case,mounting outside ,
    instead of swiftech micro res… a 250mm reservoir
    ugly glossy black paint
    And working with quite large folds of the hose would it be better like this

    [​IMG]

    but we must cook with , what we have in the kitchen as ready.
    and spend no Money…
    And my friend was the boss. SORRY.
