    I like the welded squares and eectangles you have added to the frame, for mobo io, psu and so on. That was my initial idea for my build, but instead went for alu.

    Where will you ve using the frame? - Those dimensions are too specific to be coincidental!
    Had the dimensions been 33cm i would have said Ikea shelve, but i am drawing a blank here

    My frame was made based on the size of the board , as wanted to make a cube i made ​​all of the same size , then to the power supply and for a 140mm fan :)

    Prepare a place for the board, will stay that way for now.

    Hey! - Your metal work is pretty cool. Very neat. For those (like myself) not familiar with metal work, would be great to hear what tools you used and how you cut and smoothed the metal.

    Also, what's all the white goop? :D Filler?

    :) I do not have much experience in the matter, since it is my first project used more practical materials and with a reduced cost. The sides are reused from other PC boxes, and then the white stuff is "Polyester Mass" is to be used in cars etc., I do not know if have same name in english, tools one angle grinder, drill, sandpaper, is the basic XD

    Based paint I'm enjoying what I see, the hardest part will be in the end be able to give a camouflage paint, but that's the end :) Now I'll start thinking about the upper side and rear.
