    Your comment really touched me it's very nice :):)

    AnG3L:
    Yes, it's true that the case will not be light at the end.
    Now, he weighs about 9kg.
    At least it does not vibrate! :hehe:

    So as promised the update of the hard disk support:
    Already cut the sheet with the shear and pointing holes for the slots that will to escape the hot air upwards. :)
    [​IMG]

    Then i have drilling the hole:
    [​IMG]

    After I trace the grooves to be able to guide me with the jigsaw :)
    [​IMG]

    And cutting:
    [​IMG]

    It's the support with its final form:
    [​IMG]

    Now the conventional polishing, and then drillingthe holes for fixation. :)
    I then create my guides for the supports hard disks in the bars "U" aluminum.
    [​IMG]

    While the top bars are simply cut to 120mm, the bottom ones are a bit more sophisticated :D
    I drilled a hole to put a stop pin to lock the support to forward and I also folded a piece of aluminum at the back for not pushing too far the support. :)
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    And a picture to show you the interior space of the support,
    [​IMG]

    And now the pictures in the box: ;)
    The seal in the location of the power supply.

    And support for hard disk:

    Finally, an overall picture:

    So much for today, next big step, support of the motherboard.

    It's been awhile since I had not progress a bit ... (a lot of work to school:miffed:)

    So I show you what I did yesterday: the holes for the neon switches. :)
    I have made this with a Greenlee to have good accuracy. ;)
    [​IMG]

    Here is the result in the case with a switch in place:
    [​IMG]

    Today I will make the motherboard support, so I will post the pictures soon.
    ;)

    Here as promised the pictures of the motherboard support made this weekend! :)

    So for the first step, I have made the holes for cable management
    and the holes for mounting the motherboard.

    I will therefore soon make the hole in the back of the CPU to access the attachments of the ventirad and welding or insert the motherboard standoffs. :)

    I started by cutting a bias to the shear at the front of the plate.
    For it takes the shape of the front of the box.
    Then I drilled holes at the ends of grooves.
    [​IMG]

    And as usual I finished working with a jigsaw and lime,
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    The next step was to drill the mounting holes of the motherboard :D
    Step tricky in itself because it takes a perfect alignment with the support of I / O Panel installed on the backplate.
    I used an old case to make the size inter the holes.
    [​IMG]
    Then, before drilling, I checked my hole fell just with an old motherboard in ATX format.

    Here the plate with the six holes completed.
    [​IMG]

    Then I made a groove in the bottom left corner. So the PCI brackets are not exceed.
    [​IMG]

    This step is finish, normally I can continue this weekend. :dremel:
    In passing yesterday, I ordered the components for the Rheobus in Gotronic.
    :)

    Tanks for your comments! :)

    A small update consists of the back plate, which is attached the power supply :)
    Cutting the hole for the power supply and drilling holes for attaching to the drill press.
    [​IMG]

    Here are the photos in the box:
    [​IMG]

    It lacks the location of the grid next to the power supply.
    I realize that at the same time as other grid. :)

    Ahhh... the holidays :clap: at last I'm going to seriously move forward on the project! :D

    I started yesterday with the CD's support,
    Composed of 3 bays 5"25, two standard and one for a programmable display and the Rheobus. :)

    To start, I gave the form that I want in a metal plate,
    I had already thought about doing a patron, then finally I said it would be easier to bend at cut at end...
    [​IMG]

    Then I cut my metal sheet to length:
    [​IMG]

    The next step was the hole for the display in the last bay, 95x45mm rectangle:
    [​IMG]
    The bay of the display is a little higher than others because of the size of it,
    so I made an angle so ratraper height and not to distort the front. :)

    Then I weld the sheet at the angle:
    [​IMG]

    Then before drilling the holes, I sanded with a flap disc :):
    [​IMG]

    And using an old CD player, I drilled mounting holes:
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Here is a picture of the support within the structure :)
    [​IMG]


    I then made small rubber pads for hard disks and CD players,
    Using a cookie cutter in the same sheet of rubber, than power supply. :thumb:
    [​IMG]

    The silent for hard disks:
    [​IMG]

    The silent for CD Player:
    [​IMG]


    Just for fun here are two pictures with the display, programmable
    I will use this if the programming the PIC16F628, is not completed in time. :)
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    So much for today, the next step being the completion of the air conduit for the 140mm front fan.
    And the fins are normally scheduled for next weekend ... :)

    New update before the air lines fan: the upper front plate. :)
    [​IMG]
    I drilled a hole to make place for the CD players.

    Then I rounded the top of the plate so that it follows the shape of the structure:
    [​IMG]

    And here is the result on the structure:

    Let's go for the Update of the week! :)

    I may be a bit forward but as I got the components for the Rheobus
    and I have to wait to be in school for have electric test plates.
    I still want to work a bit on it, so I realized it's facade. ;)

    A small aluminum plate, 4 mm thick on the size of a CD player:
    [​IMG]

    Then in the same plate, I drilled holes for potentiometers
    start with a small diameter to be about not damaging the plate by drilling directly to 10.
    As you will see there will be 8 entries on my Rheobus.
    [​IMG]

    Now the perforated plate to 10mm:
    [​IMG]

    For decoration, I then hit the plate numbers from 1 to 8 designate any potentiometers:
    [​IMG]

    Here is a test with a potentiometer mounted:
    [​IMG]

    On the next photo, we see 4 holes at each end,
    in a purely aesthetic concern, I want to put a 3mm BTR screws at each corner. :D
    His will be a little crude, a small "industrial" style!
    [​IMG]
    As I did not have the screws, I could not show you the result ... :(

    I put the plate a little warm before placing a fresh coat of paint! :)
    [​IMG]

    Hop, and here is the result of painting with a potentiometer in place:
    [​IMG]

    And for details I asked my brother to paint me the numbers in white
    so they remind of the fans. :D
    [​IMG]

    I also made the cover above the Rheobus :)
    Still in an aluminum plate identical, I drilled the 4 holes at the corners for remind the Rheobus
    and I hit some word ... Just to make history and design pro :D :D :D
    (Well you know what I mean ;))
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    And this is what gives his painting:
    [​IMG]
    I must say I'm pretty happy with the result! :D ;)

    To finish with the cover, I realized its brackets:
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    And painting ...
    [​IMG]

    And below the renderer in the case:
    [​IMG]

    Tell me what you think, it interests me!
    :) :)

    Tanks for your comments, It's really nice! :):)

    djzic:
    It's nice to think that I deserve a sponsor, but Seasonic, Arctic Cooling and Aquatuning supports me already.
    I take this opportunity to thank them once again. :thumb:

    pyro1son:
    When I wrote Fury, it was not the word "fury" but the name of the mod that I wanted to write.
    As if i had marked, "Maximum Performance, Maximum Cooling, ...for Fury Mod" ;)

    Really nice !!! , but i think one colour on this case wouldn't be a great idea.

    To "fangame": Je pense que 2 couleurs c'est mieux !!!
