I like all the details man really nice job!
Love the whole raw metal look! Got my Vote for MOTM!
Thanks Ang3l and thank you for the vote mybadomen
Another small update:
After installing the mobo the gap between it and the backplate kinda bugged me, so I've made these:
They'll be installed next to the mobo like this:
This is a really creative build. I like the combination case/bench kind of approach. So far it looks very nicely done.
Very unique idea cant say I have seen that done before great idea!!
Wow! Great work! I like very much "naked" pc and you have skills and ingenuity. Let update flow and big congrats for you fatherhood fatherdom ehm? you got it!
Like all great pieces of art.... you framed it. Love how that shows the board. Just be caseful for any electrical shorts.... On the back of my P67 Rampage I had really long solder "mounts"....
Nice solution to fill up the gap that way.Keep up the good work.
This build is awesome, I love the super clean, no clutter look and the fact that its all open. Thoughs sata connectors are sweeet too they look great. You got one of my votes
Master of bars.
Nice sata neatness solution I tried something along that line but this is perfect. congrats for the MOTM nom too, caught a vote from me.
Superb work on this.
Thanks, haven't seen it before myself either
Thanks for the compliments & the congrats
Thanks! The 'mount' are quite long on this board too, but the standoffs are long enough, so there should be no problem.
Thanks Paslis, and I'll sure try to
Thanks for the vote riekamharg
So yeah then I ran into a small problem, mainly because I didn't plan ahead.. The only panel on the case that should be able to come off hasn't got enough room to actually come off:
Because of the reservoir, the panel with the fan can only come off by moving it upwards, but it can't because the part with the blue line on it is blocked by the motherboard, and there is not enough room to move it back, there is only a 6mm gap between the panel and the reservoir (at the green arrow) So yeah that sucks..
But I think I found a solution that hopefully looks good too, to do this I had to cut the panel in two pieces:
And I've cut a stainless steel hinge into the right size:
The hinge is mounted onto the panel like this, (The screws will be hidden)
And I've also made a Sketchup design for the pass-through for the ATX wires:
^^^ That looks familiar
Haha yep it's done before, but mine has a small twist, and is in black plexi...So stay tuned!
Today I finished the pannel with the hinge:
When the psu fan is installed the top part can't swing open this far, but still far enough to allow the pannel to 'slide' up and clear the mobo.
Filled the screwholes and sanded them flush with the pannel:
Wow, stunning work and all the more impressive for being done by hand.
(No disrespect to the various CNC mod-gods intended.)
Thanks MeddIE, yup trying to keep up with the CNC gods by hand is quite a challenge
I have to second that! I'm not a God but I know my way around machines. Both manual and cnc. I can't help but be impressed when I see someone make something as amazing as this with a minimum of tools! My hat off to you sir!
Just awesome, I really love that design .
Keep it coming !
Thanks Angel & Winkston
Continuing with the ATX pass-through pannel, this is what I drew in Sketchup:
And this is what I got in the mail today:
Not to shabby
Did you get that cut by ponoko?
Nope drew it in Sketchup and got it from Graveco.nl
