    Wow those plexi frames to keep it all together look very nice. Great idea as well to just use clear plexi this way.

    Hello everyone !

    Quickly some news, this week-end I'll probably finish what I'm working on since 2 weeks, that is ... a removable MB support !! :clap:

    This part was longer than expected, I didn't imagined how many problems I must solved to make it possible, and as I must be one of the first to try this, I couldn't inspire me on another projects !

    I can't wait to show you all of this !! :dremel:

    thanks, I hope it will continue !

    My solution is basic but it work ! I hope you won't be disappointed :)

    So it's time for a Big Update !!

    I just finish my MB support which ask me a lot of work, this is some pictures of the realization !!

    For this removable system, the support must be slide inside two rails

    After that, I decide to realize another hole to simplify the mounting of the CPU cooler

    This support is done, but I'll probably change the plexi board for another withoud the long hole for PCI cards because it seems too fragile.

    I'm not sure if I like the motherbard-tray and the new backside. You spend lot's of time conservating all the detail in the front and then you go and redo the back with a - in my oppinion - non-matching backpanel.

    Would've loved to see you redrilling all the holes in the back aswell to keep the G5-looks from all angles.

    Thanks a lot for your kind comments !! I really appreciate. :blush:

    Thanks a lot too for your comment, I must admit you totally right about the design.

    For me, the conception I choose for this removable tray can't be adapted with conserving all the original holes (maybe too fragile). But as you said, this is the back of the case, and I prefer to had this option (removable tray) rather a better design for this hidden side.

    I still hope you'll like the next !

    Hello here !

    It's time for an UPdate !!

    This is how I realized the middle plate inside the case for mounting SSD !

    Here too I have choosen a 4mm plexiglass plate
    [​IMG]

    First bend with the help of the exterior of the case
    [​IMG]

    the cutting on the left is for the IEC plug
    [​IMG]

    a little more of cutting and bending
    [​IMG]

    It's not finish, but this is a first rendering for checking
    [​IMG]

    with the PSU
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    then, some cuttings on an aluminum plate
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Realization of the SSD's bracket

    and installed

    You've got some serious craftsmenship and artistic talents sir ;)

    The combination of the alu and the clear acrylic looks stunning, and the precision is excellent. :rock:





    Still not liking the backplate tho.

    Thanks for your comment !

    I'm actually thinking about the window on the door, I hope have enough time this week end to realize the cut !

    Also, I'm waiting for my new 3mm aluminum plate to replace the plexi plate of my MB tray

    And of course, I can thanks David Chugg from www.thelaserhive.com for all his services :clap:
