    Hi fellows!

    First off all i will thanks my Sponsors who have made this project possible:​



    Intro
    Started with a case,
    [​IMG]
    -Chieftech(??) Miditower (White Case)-
    History:Got it + hw(trash now, but ok then :) ) of the dad to my ex (my girl then). All i had to do was to help them clean their stands. Nice paycheck^^

    The plan was to finish it in about 10 weeks in a project @school, but i didn't make it, so i'll continue at home! Something of what i'm gonna to is to cut blow holes everywhere, window, paint it, new front and MUCH sanding!
    I've got a digital Camera (In the beginning i didn't have it), so updates will not be slowed down by that reason^^

    To do:
    • Make Blow holes
    • Put plates inside the case (Steel)
    • Make holes for cable ogranizing^^
    • Sand the plexi on the right side door, so it will be a frost-effect
    • Holes for diamond and plexi on right side door
    • Find a way to mount the Dvd-burner, Control Panel, Lightbus(Back at the PCI rack?)
    • Cut out the diamond/Get someone to cut it with Laser/Plasma cutter, and mount it on the side door
    • New front with: Control panel, Switch'es, Blow hole, Stealthed Dvd-burner
    • A lots of screw holes^^
    • Sand the whole case (inside/outside)
    • Paint (inside/outside)
    • Clean it!
    • Mount everything of Case mods, maybe hw?
    Done:
    • Blow holes (missing the finish)
    • Sanded down couple of times
    • New front (The one i made will not be used)
    • Finished the diamond (maybe get another diamond^^?)
    • Cutted out plexi to the side doors (Will not be used)
    • Something on the chassis
    • Finish the diamond and mount it on the side door (Maybe get a new one?)
    Miss
    • Plates inside (Got them, missing to fit them^^)
    • Make holes for cable ogranizing
    • Find a way to mount the Dvd-burner, Control panel and Lightbus (Back at the PCI rack?)
    • Finish the blow holes
    • New front with: Control panel, Switch'es, Stealthed Dvd-burner
    • More screw holes
    • Sand it down (inside/outside, sand blowing)
    • Paint it (inside/outside)
    • Clean it
    • Mount all of case mods, and maybe hw?
    • Probably more, take it as it comes : )
    System
    • ASUS A8N SLI Premium
    • AMD Athlon 64, 2.2GHz "Venice"
    • CLUB3D Geforce 7800GT 256MB
    • OCZ 1024MB Dual Channel Platinum Ed. R-2
    • Maxtor 250GB DiamondMAX 10 SATA HD
    • ++

    (I'll be laying all my sketches in this post)

    Hello all!

    We start with the Logo:

    [​IMG]
    ^^Left. You see: The diamond and the left side

    Then, the Control panel:

    [​IMG]
    ^^Front. You see: LCD-Display (20x4), Umbracoscrews, "Bulgin-switch'es" (Bilxtra), Sunbeam Rheobus

    [​IMG]
    ^^From the side. You see: LCD-Display (20x4), Umbracoscrews, "Bulgin-switch'es" (Bilxtra), Sunbeam Rheobus

    Then it's the Diamond:

    [​IMG]
    ^^Front. You see:The design at the diamond wich gonna be at the left side door. It's cutted out in alu, but maybe i'll get it in steel too^^ Back the diamond it will be 5mm UV Plexi, Blue

    [​IMG]

It will just be a fan in the front, and the inside of the case (the freezer part) will be covered of something that's in freezer bags^^ The front fan will be a Sunbeam 80mm Blue LED fan.

    oh ****! :p Forgot, im so used to write in norwegian, my bad.
    Thanx for answer! Why i am cutting one fanhole at the top and one at the bottom? Because then it will come more fresh air into the case, and then it getting colder! :) And a little bit for the beauty of course ;)

    What about some mesh in the bottom? it wil be better than a fanhole? I mean a big pice of mesh (netting på norsk). but it's not smart if you gonna watercool your case later ;)

    I think u would want it to blow bottom up rather than top down, cause i think the air flow is a bit non-touching any important component top down.

    Today and yesterday, i've sanded the whole case with p180, and started to cut out the plexi to the diamond. I've also cut out a litle hole at the back side panel, bevause it was original a handle there, but that was so ugly so i took it away, and going to replace it with plexi, UV Blue if i get it ;)
