I had already made the side panel but.......

But because I want this case to kick arse, I threw away 60 bucks of side panel and started again.

I present to you, magnet side panel! There is a 1mm pocket into the 6mm thick acrylic and then we shave down another 6mm part down to 1mm, that becomes the lid.

Then the top is bonded and polished and then bonded again to the side panel. Magnets? You won't even see them.

But hold the phone, won't the panel slide up and down, left and right?

Nope. For those who don't understand what they are looking at, the top corners and bottom corners have pieces that jut out but are level with the original window. These stop the panel going down, left or right. You'll notice I haven't gone on the cheap either, the panel features 24 magnets on the frame and another 24 on the side panel.

I am almost 100% certain that if these magnets pull 600 grams each as stated on the website, then this side panel won't be going anywhere.

If you are wondering what magnets I am using, look no further; http://cgi.ebay.com.au/100-x-Disc-Neodymium-Rare-Earth-Magnets-N35-4mm-x-2mm-/230613057210?pt=AU_Supplies&hash=item35b19bfeba#ht_4992wt_905

They cost 10 bucks and hold around 600 grams each (the ones I got are not in that link, that link just has a good pic of them).

Looks like it is going to be an amazing case.

that's awesome but you better be careful with magnets. they can erase your hard drive and or cause other issues if to close to internals. i know for a fact the magnets you posted are strong as hell.. i like the 2 peace side panel, makes cleaning fans easier.

My side panels are held by two door magnets (ferrite) that are placed at less than 1cm of my HDD cages, and hey, zero problems.


I discourage using neodymium magnets though. Ferrite ones aren't powerful enough to do any damage.

From here: http://www.kjmagnetics.com/FAQ.asp#plasticsize

52. Will magnets erase my hard drive or harm my computer?
Not unless you really work at it. While you probably don't want to stick magnets directly to your computer case, having them nearby will not harm your computer. Magnets can damage floppy disks and magnetic tape storage media, so you must keep magnets away from these items. They should not, however, damage any data on your hard drive unless you place a very large and powerful magnet directly on top of the drive. Every hard drive already contains a powerful neodymium magnet, so one moving around outside the case will not affect the data. Here is an article from PCWorld Magazine to support this: http://msn.pcworld.com/article/id,116572-page,1/article.html.

Update time!


221823_10150574797855230_885085229_18648687_1642501_n.jpg
I got started on the side panel and I must say, this may just be the most expensive acrylic side panel for a computer, ever.

224273_10150574798815230_885085229_18648709_810029_n.jpg
To make it I need an entire 6mm clear and 3mm black sheet, 48 magnets and over 3 hours of fabrication (still going...)

225558_10150574798505230_885085229_18648703_272887_n.jpg
When working with a CNC you can make really tight tolerances!


225493_10150574799150230_885085229_18648714_490508_n.jpg
These three combined make up the magnet holding mechanism.

225208_10150574799350230_885085229_18648718_688656_n.jpg
Like so.

224148_10150574799545230_885085229_18648722_5691769_n.jpg
And then embedded into the side panel.

230813_10150574799775230_885085229_18648726_2155425_n.jpg
The side panel has a clear piece and a black piece ontop. The clear window sits flush so it looks completely seamless.

228488_10150574799980230_885085229_18648731_220851_n.jpg
The magnetic holder is then attached onto the side panel.

222313_10150574800310230_885085229_18648736_1529256_n.jpg
And then this part is attached to the case allowing you screwless entry to your internals.

228398_10150574800530230_885085229_18648740_2988313_n.jpg
This is what it looks like inside the contraption. All the magnets are side by side and provide a huge amount of force to snap the panel into place.

All the magnets are 12cm's minimum from any electronics in the case and these particular magnets hold a gauss of 3000 which means that after 4cm's their magnetic field doesn't affect electronics and after 5.5cm's the magnetic field doesn't exist at all. Magnetic fields drop off exponentially smile.gif

I need to polish the side panel and bond the magnetic holders onto the case. All of this will happen in the next few days so stay tuned! On another note, I am going to be entered into the Bit-tech MOTM competition tomorrow so vote for me if you think the case is deserving enough!

nice..

Excellent engineering. I normally can't stand acrylic builds, but this one is special!

The magnets work good as, more to come soon!
