Acryllic Case [First Mod]

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

Hi guys, thanks for clicking on this thread

A bit of backstory before we begin
A few weeks ago my parents left for a week for vacation. Of course, knowing me, my dad told me to do something productive, instead of sitting behind the PC all day. He made a deal with me that I could use all his tools (just not his cash ) to make a PC case. My idea was an acryllic case with a removable motherboard tray, because I found some of these slider things in my dad's storage room.

So first, I went over to the hardware shop to get some aluminium right angled corner bar things for the frames after I did some measurements and after sketching a model on paper.

Secondly, I had an old case lying around, so I drilled the rivets out, and ripped the motherboard tray apart, and drilled some holes so that they would work with the sliding things.

However, I couldn't take too many good pictures during the first part of the build, because my parents took the camera with them (I don't have my own camera, I use my money on components )

Anyway, very sorry but pictures will have to come tomorrow
It's getting really late, but for now, I'll tease you with this video on what I have so far.


In the mean time, I also need assistance getting a (rather cheapish) mATX build together. But I guess I'm going to wait for BD, or should I go SB?
Also, excuse my English in the thread, my vocabulary isn't really sophisticated
I hope you like it

Also a mini update, I'll be working with acryllic once I've got the cash for that. Grocery stores aren't really good pay, but probably the best for my age
