Back of the case after.
Sheet that will support 2 Force GT SSD's from corsair already cut and bent and doing some fit tests hopefully by the end of the next week will have some more news.
Finally its starting to show some shape =)
A preview of the disk's with the logo cut off and a light coming from behind hope you like it.
Looks great! Cant wait for the final product! And your English is really good, I wouldn't be able to tell it wasnt your first language f you hadn't told me.
Really well done and subbed.
HEheh thks mate
Still on the sketchbook soon enough all cut off and ready to mount.
Hope you guys like it.
After some time away im back to modding, and hopefully to finish this project.
All the logo cuts are done.
Hope you like how the logos look like and sorry for the bad pic quality but my phone was the only thing i had at my disposal at that time.
Follows a small update of the work
Cnc work in an acrylic sheet to put behind the logos and a small surprise in the SSD's.
The idea is to make the acrylic dingy so it does a nice effect on the leds behind them.
For the ones that like to see a CNC working follows some videos.
Think it ended up good with the logo lightnings what do you think??
I like the case, it's nice to see old thing reused. Looks interesting I'm watching to see what happens.
Thank you for your reply mate..
Hope i will be putting some new pics online this weekend with some inside of the case work done
Big old servercases are awesome!
Should be interesting to watch
Since i got some reply's on the post i was so happy i decided to do some work yesterday
Preparing the fans to mark the supports for the radiators.
Testing the new aluminum back to cover all that holes the case had.
I think the radiators look good what do you guys think ?
Hey guys, after solving the fixation of the radiators its time to make the radiator grill.
The design, i tried to maintain a little of the case design with that stripe from the right side...
Hope you like it
Mind me asking the diameter of the endmill aswell as the width of the slots?
Did it make an awful sound our was it like a walk in tha park? Cheers!
Hi Axoxenon, the endmill had 2mm and the slots you can see in the pic bellow all the measurements
Well it all was made in a big milling factory so there was allot of noise but it didn't came from the milling of this part =)
3mm wide looks perfect. I'm getting an late sub on this build
(Hopes to see some more machine action aswell )
