Hello guys! Since i put my compuer in that custom made g5 case i made, i was dissapointed with its acoustics. So many holes on front side made it noizy. Well, at least for my terms. iI'm kinda sound freak, cos i often work at night, and I live far away from any traffic so i hear EVERYTHING. I have very quiet samsung hdds with acoustic management, but its still fast rotation, and it makes sound, that is clear now. So This project is gonna be all on sound. Its gonna be my quiet box Here are some sketches: Design is simetrycal and MINIMAl, that's the way i like my design It will be air cooled, here are schematics: White tunnel is basicly box, wich will hold hdds and optics, also it will be construction element wich strengtens build. The box will be sealed from all but one side (2 holes). wich wil make hdd's quiet. Also front , top, and sides will be closed (no holes) at all. Again, yay for the silence Green elements are separators wich create air tunnels, wich will allow beter cooling. Black paths with arrrrow represent main airflows (3 of them). All of the fans will be around 400RPM. This will again (as g5) be low budget project. I will use all sorts of different wooden pieces i have at my home, wich i will paint to loose wooden look. Also i plan to use Aluminum, and plexy (on sidepanels). I would also like to put small lcd screen on one sidepanel, but that depends on its cost... (i will make room for it so if it comes somehow, ill put it) logo is still in working faze. ok, enugh with theory..... lets go on with application i bought this wood for inside cage, around 9EUR 230mm x 2200mm x 10mm For cutting it i used big 2 hand rottation tool but with disc for metal, cos im very afraid of wooden disc. It has big teeth and have tendencies to jump cos of them, and since its hand tool, I wound like that it jumps on my limb . Bad side is i get lots of burns on cut, but notthing that sander cant resolve. Theese pieces i will use to make curve. Thats it 4 now, this project is not done already as g5 was, so have patience (wont be daily updates). Cya later. EDIT: more info... mum –adjective 1.silent; not saying a word: to keep mum.
