Massive update as promised.
It is MOTM time and I am already 10 votes off the mark so I decided that a little progress would be in order.
If you have been following this thread, you would know that I wanted to compile all the motherboard form factors into one board and the form factor that I was ultimately stuck on was the SR2's HTPX.
After an excellent recommendation by Sebas, I was able to replicate that form factor. As such, this case can take mITX, mATX, ATX, E-ATX and HPTX motherboards. To make sure all my measurements were okay, I did a small prototype with MDF.
I was happy with that and so I got polishing, by now my arms are quite sore -_-
And so a motherboard backplate was born. This is quite a flexible backplate in terms of what you can put on it.
Whilst the motherboard goes up front there is room for up to 5 HDD's and two SSD's or 10 SSD's if you choose not to use the HDD slots.
After drilling in some taps for the 6mm risers, the IO plate was ready to be fitted.
The fit could not have been more perfect and thats great because working in inches from the formfactor files was slightly irritable...
Next up was the drive bays and once again, perfect fit.
Thats my massive update and if you have the time, please head across to the Bit-tech Mod of the month section and vote! http://forums.bit-tech.net/showthread.php?t=209232
