    Looks good so far, I would like to see what kind of siding you will produce.

    Just a tip about the wood, I don't know if you know this, if you do, kind of disregard the tip. When you glue wood side to side, make sure that the bindings are opposed. I noticed on the bottom that the bindings are not opposed, chances are it could be fine, but it could warp a little depending on where you'll be storing the case. I actually broke that rule on my project (deliberately) on the floor board on my desk.

    Another update is here. :D

    Thanks. Side panels will be done tomorrow, but I'm not sure should I use removable panel or just glue it and use it like motherboard tray.
    Thanks for the tip. :)

    HDD case in da haus! :D

    I decide to go with space for five drives, and some space for Raspberry Pi.

    Also i made radiator standoffs for easy radiator removal.

    Little update today. :)
    After some thinking I figure out how to mount the pump.

    On down side pump has two unused 4mm holes.
    [​IMG]

    I cut two 2 cm aluminum pieces and drill holes in it.
    [​IMG]

    And this is how it looks when mounted.

    One notice, screw is going through down side of the case and holding all that together.

    Long time no see. Time for another update.

    Apogee block didn't come with AMD mounting plate so I need to made one. I decide to use plexiglass.
