    Hello guys!
    I´m here with my new Scratch build project. It´s called Heavy Machine (HM). Why Heavy Machine? Because in this build I will use steel beams and plates. Also I want to use dark wood which is heavy as well. Originally I wanted to use only steel however I have access to fully equipped carpentry shop, so I will use wood as another design element for case, it could be pretty nice I think. I decided to use wood in the front, top and rear parts of the case. Some of the projects I saw had everywhere rivets, bolts and some other details that I find disturbing. My primary task was to devise a "special" gripping for the side panel, which means there will be needed only one screw for the one side panel. I can tell you that all the steel and wooden parts will be made at home. So the overall construction will be longer and also do not expect Worklog every weekend.

    This project is sponsored by several companies.

    Gigabyte contributed their best motherboard for socket 1150 - Gigabyte G1 Gaming Z97X- WIFI-BK and a graphic card Gigabyte GTX 970

    The next sponsor is be quiet!

    be quiet! PURE WINGS 2 fans
    CPU cooler be quiet! DARK ROCK 3
    and be quiet! POWER ZONE 1000W PSU

    Now some renderings.
    There is obvious how should be the final version of the case look like, but the wooden cover at the top will be definitely adjusted because it seems to me a bit weird.
