Project: Interior Des(k)ign Sponsorship Update 28/11/2011: A huge huge thank you must go out to EK, in particular Gregor, I am pleased to say that EK have offered to sponsor my project! So Ive been planning and workin on this project for some time now, I had to save up a bit to get the big parts but finally got my dream specced Pc to build. Yes, it is older tech but ive wanted this since it was released, and finally ive got my hands on it. I have been working on this for a couple of weeks now, I waited as I work slowly, free time is not very forthcoming so I waited until I had a bit to put up here first. I already made the desk for my previous stop gap PC but with the intention of starting this build eventually, heres the desk before my build.... During the build Completed in its first incarnation The plan though was to turn it into something far better. I wanted to incorporate a beast inside the desk, so did a very quick sketchup of the desk and how it could look So thats the plan.... Heres the progress so far. I am using a mixture of metals for this build, mostly steel 1.2mm, but also a little aluminium throughout, none of it will be left bare, the finish has already been decided upon inside and out. I will let the photos do the rest of the explaining This is a video but I couldnt get it to link herre so you will have to click to view it sorry! http://i961.photobucket.com/albums/ae100/paulnvickyg/Desk Case/c071b666.mp4 Can you guess what it is yet? Its a plasma cutter, my favourite tool!! Thats what it does Coming together to form the hdd hot swap bay front Onto the righht hand side... What for? You'll see... Onto the center panel now, which will house two 120mm fans and an Aquero controller and various other bits like a hidden USB panel and the Switches For the Aquacomputer grills, again cut with the plasma cutter Looking ok so far Welded the 3 pieces together to see how we are going so far...ok I didnt take any in progress pictures of the Drive holder being made...sorry, but it fits! I added 2mm adhesive backed neoprene to the fronts of the drives and checked for fitment, they need a little tweaking to line up perfectly bu this was a trial run so theres plenty of time to perfect it. Plus I need to make covers from steel for the drive trays and buttons yet. On the other side I fitted the hot swap HDD trays to check how they looked, they fit perfectly, it was stolen from a donor 800D and is a great design! Next was a trial fit of the beast, guess what it is... Any guesses?
