Yeah I know, PSU and hdd carry both are hanging... both suffered the flight.
Thanks for your comments!
Here's a no-update
Ioncito next to a HAF and a 1.5l coke so you can see it size:
Sketchup doesn't like me... this is my best try... HDD fitting test:
A pic with the case fully closed:
XSPC Acrylic Reservoir + Swiftech MCP355 + MCR220-QP Rad+ Zotac ION Atom 330 + white tubbing + 3M M110 Pico Projector + 2 HDD in RAID0
Thats just sweet
I've been really busy @ work, thats why I didn't update this project
Some "better" sketchs i've done for V2.0:
The red brick it's the pico projector.
What do you think about a ZOTAC GeForce® GT 240 AMP!® Edition + ZOTAC ION ITX F "gaming" rig?
Looks cool got any pics of your sofa? Where did you get that mesh? I desparetly need some!
nice work on this case man!! although i'm not using the ion, i still like the zotac build. Currently using the geforce 9300 itx-wifi, and no problems so far.
I work for a company that makes sieves. So tonnes of scrap mesh (stainless steel of course )
You want some? I don't pay for postage either, so i can send you some. What size you looking for? No guarantees, but i'll definitely see what i can find. Such a shame to see it scrapped. I almost cry everytime i walk past the bin.
If you'd reconsider the possibility for another (a.k.a. separate-from-pump-top) reservoir, you could free enough space above the pump that there'd be room to put the fans in the inside of the case. Makes it more compact that way. But this is just a suggestion, based on your scetches - I don't know how that would play out in real life.
It looks like i can put the fans inside the case...
And look what just arrived in the mail:
Looks so much better with everything inside the case.
Glad to see you ran with my wish and tried to ft the fans inside the case. It just looks so much more clean, I think.
Oh, and those fans just look perfect. I'm definately getting 6 of them for my next mod (colour scheme: white w./red trimmings and chrome details) - too bad they're so god damn expensive, but sometimes it's just worth it, hehe.
Now I can put a handle on the top
Time for an update, hardware is on it's way
Ioncito v 2.0
I'm starting the case over again to fix some details I don't like from the first build, and now I can show you how I built the frame.
This is what I ordered:
EVGA GeForce GT 240 SuperClocked, it's a bit larger than the Zotac GT240.. but it's more powerful:
ZOTAC IONITX-F-E Intel Atom 330:
Some old scrap alu, mesh and angle:
Manual miter saw:
First angle profile with some 45° cuts:
Both profiles with mirror cuts:
This cut is for curving the top bezel:
And these are for the 90° angles:
such clean bends, very nice
This piece will go in the front:
Beautiful bends nice craftsmanship! How did you get such precise bends? Did you bend the curve around something or is it all free hand? The Logo is a nice touch too. Keep up the good work.
Thanks! I used to work at a handcrafted spring factory, I do my bendings free hand
Front and Top plates:
Sanding + bondo to fix some scratchs and holes:
2 component Epoxy
My super caterpillar piston:
Since this V2.0 is a "gaming version", it's a bit larger:
oi! Dont mind if i steal this:
Excellent craftsmanship, and very educational for a fabrication n00b like myself. Moar please!
