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

Update?! Told you guys I would make use of my days off.

I had everything cut out but due to some mistakes in measurements I have to make the top panel again. In the meantime, the backplate, midplate and IO plate went in without issue.


This of course means we can do crazy stuff, like this.


Yeah you want dual PSU's now don't you!


Thankfully the drive bays all fit like they should.


Cable management is a huge part of this case.


Mmmmmmmm




Plenty of room for the dual rads, dual psu's, dual res's.


IO plate fits onto the backplate seamlessly.


Bought a Canon 60D so expect some better shots from me when it arrives. I am using my 8 year old Canon 330D to it's absolute limit, the options were really quite limited back then and most of my shots are manual mode to get the correct effects that you see here.

I am back to full time work tomorrow so I will spend the rest of the week touching things up, polishing to perfection etc.

Oh and.....

Epic is situated on Arthur st in Fortitude Valley. It's easy to miss because we don't have signage out front and thats ironic because we do most of Sign A Rama's physical sign jobs by contract.
