Here is the final update if dont want to read the entire project log: http://forums.bit-tech.net/showthread.php?t=129157&page=10 Hi, this is my first case built but i Hope it will turn out fine but i guess u will have to be the judges of that. I have however done 2 projects in alu before both of them was made for sofairgun ,first one is a aluhelmet and the second one is a electric operated gunholster (of corse in aluminium to) a la robocop style this 2 projekt took me abaout 350 houers.

I have been working on this scratch build since September 06 (abaout 200 houers)but i knew that this was going to be a difficult and timeconsuming built so i wanted to bee at least 50% done before uploading the project (i first doubtet that i was able to complete it at all). Why a pyramid?: Well i decided to build a pyramid for more than one reason, the pyramids got an amazing history, and i saw the shape as really challenging to make as a case and last it looks really nice. Guidelines in project: Not only to built a nice case in the shape of a pyramid but allso to make it functional (user frienly),the basic idea was that it must fit a regular mobo,psu,dvd,hdd and displaycard, however i had to buy a new psu because a regular wouldn't fit, (wantet to keep case small) so i ended up getting me a server psu. more of that later. Im also going to keep the case exterior as clean as possible so anything dont interrupt the pyramid shape Case facts: Base 44x44 cm, hight 44,5 ( keep in mind that it fast narrows down to only 0,5x0,5 cm in top, making the space inside mutch smaller than in a square shaped case ). The case will not be painted but gritted down to 1200 (wet sanding),and then i will polish it. Fans: (2 in front one on top) will have filter on them witch will be easy to clean. Easy access to mobo inside. The inside will have details from pyramids so i will put meny work houers on the inside aswell. Hardware: Msi K8N Neo4 Platinum (7125) VER:1 Amd 64 3700+ 1Mb L2Cache. (2,2 Ghz) Arctic-cooling Freezer 64 Pro (not sure it will fit because of its hight) DiamondMAX 10 250Gb Sata2 2 Gb OCZ 3200 Platinum EL Dualchanel 2-3-2-5-1T Asus n7800 gt. nec 3550a dvd rw Onboard sound psu 1U Single¡jP1H-6400P Im basicly moving the components from the cp i have now into this one (not the psu) Before i start posting here is some info abaout Khufu the builder of the Great pyramid at Giza: Khufu was the second king of Dynasty 4 of the Old Kingdom. We know very little about him, in spite of the fact that he built the most famous tomb in the ancient world, "The Great Pyramid at Giza", one of the seven wonders of the world. Links with info abaout Khufu: http://guardians.net/hawass/khufu.htm Link with basic fact abaout the Great pyramid: http://whgbetc.com/mind/pyramids.html virtual tour of the Great pyramid (1st requiers quicktime) http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/nova/pyramid/explore/khufuenter.html http://www.egyptvoyager.com/pyramids_giza_virtual.htm Enough allready lets get this thing started. Ok this is what i started with a 2x1 m 1.5mm aluminium sheet: I started of by doing a model scale 1:2 of the case ,i allso did all the hardware in paper(HDD,DVD,PSU and so on) in same scale to see if/how it would fit. And one in sketchup. Here im starting to cut all the main peaces out Base ,front, back and sides, as u can see im doing all my work on the balcony ,i later on had to move in to the kitchen when winter arived. Here im working on the bending of the back and front ,they will later be conected to base with screws. I allso bended in each side of back and front and sides ,however i later had to unbend the 2 sides because in my model u could put them all togheter to make a nice pyramid but in aluminium it dident work the 1,5 mm thicknes got to big. Here is the base ,and im bending in the sides to make it stronger. here im making 4mm holes in base of the front did same thing on the back. And this is how it looks conected to base, note that i have allso cut out the back plate holes ,pictures of that dissapeared ,I'm hopefully not gonna need to use the backplate if my measurements are correct Both sides will be able to open ,so I'm putting 2 hinges on each door /side. This is where the door/sides are going to be atached with screws, i have drilled 4 holes in the base. The moboplate will be attached to base and rise up about 45 degres up making all the usb display and sound exits to come out in the right angle Here is some pics from the moboplate work.U can also see some of the 9 holes that i have drilled out for the distances. This screws will be atached to the front of case holding moboplate and front togheter(u can also see the distances backside that i have put in the moboplate. Here im working the base where the mobo is going to slide in. mobo ready to be inserted (mobo on picture is a stuntman and will never be conectet in a computer again )the peace of paper on picture represents my displaycard. And here u can se the complete mobo mounted in case. I got a problem ,it seems that i cant post more then abaout 20 pics in IMG CODE bit-teck says i got to meny pictures in post ,so what do i do now?.URL?. Im using Photobucket.
