Second, why didnt you use AL or plexi or even some ABS sheet for that plate instead of copper? Seems a waste to hide something like that with vinyl or paint.
Overall, great build/job and thanks for the link to the sleeving tool!
I had no choice but to waste the copper it was the only Stock i had available at the time and cash flow wasn't happening.And the plexi was a little to thick it would have been very close to the motherboard.This plate goes under the motherboard a little if you look really close in the picture and also behind the Power supply.And the plate is also holding a 2Tb drive hidden behind it.Also the c channel i am using is very close and nice.it was'nt cheap at all it cost allot just for that.
Here is the one i used that is pretty popular for modders.It lays very flush and makes very tight corners also.It also has a 5 star rating from modders using it.
But i will have to try that u channel sometime. Does it make really sharp turns though?Thats the most important to me.The c channel on Venom is very close to the metal it barely sticks up at all.but i always am interested in new modding tools anyway so thanks for the link
oh and speaking of the Copper i wish i had it when i did this build way back:It would have been perfect.(This was way back but i didn't get to really finish the Build because it got bought in the middle of building it) I still loved that build though with all the copper/black look.Edited by mybadomen - 1/19/12 at 11:57am
