This is my project, Pyramid PC. My goal was to build a computer case design that was unique. I searched everywhere and I couldn’t find any pyramid shaped PCs, so I decided that was a winner. The design is somewhat compact and doesn’t allow for a lot of hardware, but I don’t use much hardware in my PC anyhow. I would like to thank all the modders here at bit-tech for doing great stuff to inspire me. I would also like to thank hk of Hamlesh.com for hosting my pics. And of course my friend Ben for helping me with some of the construction and ideas. Specs: Athlon XP 3000+ @ 3200+ (big deal, I know) Thermaltake volcano 11+ Asus A7N8X Deluxe 2x512 Kingston HyperX DDR 400 Radeon 9800 Pro Seagate barracuda SATA 160G Antec true power 550W modular PSU Plain old CDrw It’s a good system and does its job well. Now, on to the project. I started the picture taking a little late. But I think you will be able to see all I did in the picture I have available. Here is the pyramid cover in a semi completed stage. The large round hole is for PSU exhaust and the smaller round holes are for intake/exhaust fans. The rectangle up in the front is for the CD-Rom drive. The Plexi-glass is held on by pop-rivets. The edges are pieces of angles aluminum that I picked up at the local harware store, they were originally 90 degrees, but were widened to 106(I think). The method of widening was placing an old shovel handle in the angled aluminum and hitting it with a hammer until it widened to the proper degree. Note to all aspiring modders out there, measure a lot and cut as accurately as possible, it will save you so much pain. This is the base piece. It is all aluminum except for the motherboard tray which I stole from an old crappy case. The piece (except for the angled aluminum around the edges) is all one piece. Squares were cut from the corners and the sides were folded up. Rivets and epoxy were used to hold it all together, the motherboard tray is bolted down. Here the two pieces are test fitted together. The top piece is just sitting on the bottom, as of this point there is no mechanism to secure the two. Back view The next step was to build brackets to hold the CD-Rom and HD. I used aluminum bars to do this. This is the CD-Rom drive bay. The bay itself was cut from an old case, then bolted to the brackets. This is the HD bay. Again the bay itself was from an old case, then the aluminum pieces were attached. Here it is test fitted with an old HD. More soon!
