Blabla Just recently i felt the need to build myself a media-storage (and possibly backup) box. I chose the Intel Essential Series D945GCLF2. Beside that i already had 2 1gb ddr2 modules (only one can be used in the board - what a waste) and an enermax psu, 1 80gb pata (system) and 2 1tb sata disks. So far there's nothing special about that. The "catch" I have an Ikea desk (it's called Vika Amon/Vika Annefors - whatever) with 2 racks left and right. I wanted my new storage-box to sit nicely in one of the compartments. I didn't find a tolerably sized case, so i took the chance to enter the world of case-modding and build one from scratch. I started to "design" what i approximately had in mind in sketchup (thanks to all who posted stuff to the Sketchup Components Collection). Now, with a plan and numbers at hand i ordered myself some plexiglass 4 x 25mm thick, 130 x25mm 2 x 10mm thick, 155 x500mm (Left, Right) 1 x 10mm thick, 226 x270mm (Harddisk-Tray) 1 x 10mm thick, 226 x180mm (Mainboard-Tray) 3 x 15mm thick, 226 x155mm (Front, Back and Middle) 2 x 10mm thick, 525 x246mm (Base, Top) from the exceptionally nice Mrs Schneider. Meanwhile i bought some brass pins, grub screws, allen screws and a jigsaw so work could begin as soon as the plexi arrived. After i completed the structural parts i started to cut out holes for the psu and mainboard. As you can see - i have no nerves for jig-sawing. I will have to do some serious improvements on these cut-lines with a file and sanding paper, but this will be subject for the next update. Thanks for reading, sorry for the bad pics. Comments and especially tips welcome, but go easy on me, it's my first time.
