Hi guys! Long time lurker, first time poster. So it's time to try and give something back to the community with a new project. The box will be 3HE (133.5mm) high and 600mm deep. I have all the components, it's just a matter of putting it together. Seeing how anything bright and shiny immediatly result in the obligatory "Oooh's", "Aaah's" and "OMG U ROXORZ"-like comments from bedazzled onlookers I decided to trick out the box with a blue LCD display, blue CCFL and some 5000mcd white leds to create some nifty looking effects. Coupled with a electronic key-lock for dis/enabling PWR, Reset and CD-rom this ought to be fun. And i know, I should have watercooled it. But well... You can rackmount just about anything with a little bit of ingenuity - including grandma and the family cat if one were so inclined... But to be perfectly honest, I can't be bothered with it in this build - it would require a complete rebuild of the front and mid sections. Hardware specs: Motherboard: MSI K7D Master L CPU: 2x AMD 1600+ MP Memory: 1 gig PC 2100 Reg. ECC PSU: Enermax EG 365P-VE in a custom cage to fit the box. HDD: 3.2gig WD CR-Rom: Samsung SM-352 CD/DVD Burner Addon Cards: GPU: S3 Trio 64+ PCI Promise TX2 Storage: Room for 7 HDD's Currently holding: 3x 200gig WD's 1x 120gig Maxtor 1x 3.2gig WD system disk Max capacity: 3.5TB Cooling: 2x Copper socket A heatsinks 2 or 3x 80mm fans (I haven't decided how to design the rear exhaust) Enough chatter, time for the pics. I haven't designed the air intake/exhaust for the front and back yet, I was thinking either a steelwire mesh, or perforated al with removable dust filters for the front and cutting some 30x10mm slits in the back. A key lock: Will sit behind the door in the front - disabling/enabling power and reset switch and the CD-Rom. I love the feel of it, it's very precise, locks with a destinct click when you turn the key. 2 poles, 1 NO and 1 NC. (That's Normaly Open and Normaly Closed). Coupled with 1 green and 1 red led indicating position it'll look pretty sweet. The leds will draw power from a linear 5v 1.2A powersupply I build especially for this mod. Since the box is only 133.5mm high I can't use standard height PCI cards - well it is possible but it would involve some pretty ugly mounting. Hence the use for one of these: That's it for now, as mentioned earlier I have all the parts needed - now it's just a matter of finding the time to put it all together. Stay tuned.
