Decided to stick with the coarsir motherboard tray. Purely because of the thickness and quality of the steel. When you buy cases you get what you pay for.

Cheap sheet metal benders are great but you really have to think how you bend items. Clamps lots of them, pieces of scrap steel. The idea is to have as much surface tension each side of the bend so you bend in a straight line.

Finally I have some direction in this build, I've been working on a order to frozen cpu for the last 4 days adding subtracting parts, I'm glad I did'nt hit purchase other wise I would only be using a 2x 120mm radiator as my second radiator. Now im leaning towards a quad 120 low profile.

Well here's pretty much the idea I'm working on . I'm going to to use 2x tripple rads in a sealed rad box. Build the box and then fit everything around it. I like the idea of a rad box but I dont like the idea of having this externally.

Im waiting on another big order from frozen cpu and finalizing a big order from FTW sleeving.

Im using 0.95mm mild steel ignore the gal, I should not be using it. Makes it alot harder to paint. It's all i could get when i finished work. But on the upside you dont have to worry about any surface rust while fabricating. You can use 0.65mm for smaller panels and if your worried about the weight. I'm not worried about weight thinking I'm past that.

On a small sheet metal bender like the 85$ one im using I would not try to bend anything more than 09.mm.

This is how you bend a simple bend, keep your bends over 40mm, reason being is you have more clamping surface which creates less flex. Nicer bend.

When your working out sizes dont forget to allow for the bend itself, I'm losing 3-4 mm for the bend itself.
