So I've had a scratch build planned for a few months and seeing the mod of the year competition has sparked my motivation to see what a neophyte like myself can do. I have a few of the materials on order already but I am looking for some guidence. I'm planning on using 2mm aluminium and acrylic. Is 2mm aluminium strong enough to hold a 240mm rad? Also I have no idea about perforating the metal to create ventilation holes. How have others done this? I've tried googling it but not really turned up anything useful. Thanks for any help you can give. I'm sure I will have more questions as I start building. I have to wait until may to start though due to studies but I am getting tools and materials together from now until then to spread the cost.
