    Not the official name. Havent thought of one yet.

    [​IMG]
    That's basicly the plan.

    [​IMG]
    Front grille cut out.

    [​IMG]
    Back cut out. Originally meant for watercooling. I sold my watercooling, then it was meant for dual psu. I didn't need dual psu, so now it's being refitted for dual silverstone 120mm's.

    The second PSU that I tried to fit in. It fit, but I didn't need a second. It's been turned into a TestPSU since.

    The system specs:

    AMD Opteron 146 CABYE
    ASrock 939dual-sata2
    512mb Samsung ram
    80gb Western Digital WD800
    Radeon 9250

    Some of it's old hardware, but that's all I can afford at the time, and also reusing a lot of my old rig in here.

    It's not going to be dual PSU anymore, 2 fans instead there. The right sidepanel, the black on the drawing I did, it's gonna be drilled out extremly fine, like a grille. The top already has a large square window, I'll have pics tomorow. Thanks.

    I already have 2 80's in the front, 2 80's in the mobo tray, 2 120's in the back (possibly), dual fan psu, and 2 floor fans (to be cut).

    Probubly not, actually. The front will probubly have no fans, and the phase change compressor. It all really depends though.

    Alright. There's some updated bits (hdd rack re-installed, top window sanded, grilles for right side, etching, wire management, etc etc) but then right after I got the pictures uploaded onto my P4 and deleted them from the camera, the hard drive on my P4 dies. That, and the heatsink on my Athlon T-bird killed itself, chipped die, overheating. Kinda hard to work when your pc's die on you, taking all the pictures with them. I'll try to re-create those as soon as possible, but until my Opteron comes, don't expect too much in the way of an update. Thanks for the patience.

    Hey! I have that same dremel knockoff. I couldn't pass up the deal at canadian tire to pick it up. Hows it work for you? I haven't put mine to use much.

    Mine works really well. Only fault is that it's quite a bit bigger and heavier than a dremel. It's also an advantage when you're etching.

    Also, the case already has been "upside-down" 'd. Suprisingly, if you drill out all the rivets and put it upside down, most of the holes will already be aligned with other holes on the other side. Only the psu rail needed some drilling, and aside from that, it's a perfect match.

    Do I see a phasechange compressor there in your sketch? That's sweet :) Though I seriously doubt it's going to fit in such a small place. Also you should keep in mind the evap tube is at the top of the compressor.. I think you'd better place it at the bottom somewhere. By the way is that thing going to chill your liquid cooling system or just the CPU?
    By the way you forgot to place a link to this thread in your log (or I just missed it).

    Koradhil: Yeah, phase change compressor. I have a slimline DVD slotload coming in. It's gonna be chilled liquid. Kinda hard to draw the coils inside the reservoir. The design will be quite flexable (flexable stainless steel hoses connecting most things) so it will be quite adaptable. I'm eventually hoping to fit it inside my Coolermaster Cavalier.

    Hybr1d Thanks. The sketchup took 2 hours :X I find with the ASRock 939dual-sata2, if you do the vmod (the one above the cpu, connecting 2 points) then you get voltages up to 1.55v, with 1.025 being 1.50, and 1.050 being 1.55v. the "Memory frequency" is the ram divider; the DDR400 setting is the 1:1, the DDR 333 setting is 5:4, the DDR 266 is the 6:5, and the DDR 200 setting is 2:1. By default, the audio, usb, and LAN are disabled. Ram voltage only has 2 options (high, auto) and all that is in the "chipset" portion of the bios.

    This project has been put on hold for a short period of time, until I get this case done.


    While I finish working on the drawings, here's 2 basic renderings. [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    It will have:

    -Clear
    -Wire management built-in
    -Black screws
    -4 hard drives
    -mid-tower
    -PSU cage (not in the renderings)
    -Built-in watercooling mounting
    -Preferably Aqua-computer stuff, if I can afford it :hip: :hip:

    I'll leave it at this right now, until I have the materials for the case and the drawings done.
