    Nice work so far. Good luck with the project.

    This has probably been suggested to you already but you do realise that with this case it is compulsory to light it from within (either with LEDs or CCFl) in UV don't you? :D

    It is obligatory yes :) But I don't want a blinding lightshow but something which makes the case glow :) This'll be intersting as I need to diffuse the light..

    Great work! I can't wait to see how this all turns out. Orange is my favorite and your design is very clean

    Hm I think I might have screwed myself over by posting the big update at the end of the last page so if anyone thinks there isn't one just click on page 4 :)

    Ok new update!

    Supporting piece of acrylic next to the motherboard tray to make it stronger

    [​IMG]

    The mobo tray is now very stable

    [​IMG]


    I started making the left side of the media rack and this is what I did so far. No drilled holes or anything.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Went back to fitting things together and the motherboard tray and backpanel fit nice now

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Ready. I bent the top part of the motherboard tray so it would act as a rest for the PSU. :)

    And that's it till tomorrow! Bye from the case :p

    Nice looking case. I did the exact same thing for my D & T project this year. Just handed it all in. I got an A* but I fell behind on the paper work. You in Year 10 or 11? Ive just left and so have my GCSE next month.

    I'm doing this for my Lower Sixth so that's Year 12 :) I've been really into modding since I was in Year 10 though hehe just never got the chance till I came here :)

    Oh! The machine I use to bend my acrylic is a strip heater :)
