Part 1 of Case No.1 Full details first: The Name? It's my first case. The Date? It was actually started on 30 April or thereabouts. Why? I built my first computer about the same time last year, and soon discovered that if I was to keep pace with technology, it'd cost cost a fair bit of dough, and create a surplus of parts. I soon decided the former was inevitable, and the latter was acceptable... My first upgrade was from an AGP 5500FX and Mobo, to a PCI-E 7300GT and accompanying Mobo. Then I spotted an AMD 3000 going cheap at Scan, and it was next the turn of my AMD 2800. So, I gathered together the other bits and pieces, and started to build a case to put them in(I'm on a strict budget). It had to be wooden, and the finished product would probably either end up as a home server, or smoothwall-running Linux box. The Shed: It's thankfully not mine! The Plans: I plan (half-heartedly) to eat the competition! The Materials: Cheap pine wood, and wire mesh out of a fire-screen. In the background you can see two floppy-disc bags. Insert Remarkable Lack of Documentation Here: I had already cut all the pieces out before thinking about photography, so the next pictures are a test fit. I used the router on the edges of the I/O port slot. I cut a little ledge for the PCI cards here: But it was both fragile and short-lived, so it got replaced by a bit of the same mesh. Then I started assembling the case: Once assembled, I started using filler where needed. (It wasn't till after I'd used it I found it was for cement.) Then I got some new equipment: A 250watt(I think) PSU, primer, and flush hinges. I soon decided that I could do without the fan cover. The case immediately got primed: More following today, if imageshack doesn't drive me crazy first. H.B.
