Idea for mATX custom case: - Page 2

post #11 of 14
Thread Starter 
I'm going to be using a couple TY-150s, I can't find an actual layout but I guessed mounting holes from photos, can anyone confirm?

and an update on the rest of the case:
getting it ready to cut

Anyone know how expensive this type of hex mesh is in terms of laser cutting machine time?

Looks fantastic TranquilTempest! Is the plan to weld all of the sheets together?

I believe the design is done, any ideas for the deadspace, or anything I missed/forgot?

@Editor22:
I'll weld the mobo tray to the front/back top bottom, air filters will be held on with magnets that secure to the fan mounting screws. case sides will be held with a hook bracket on bottom and a similar magnet arrangement at top.

On the filters, I'll epoxy some magnets into the frame, then lay the mesh on top of the frame, push the ring around the edge, sandwiching the mesh, clean up the excess mesh and spot weld or glue the ring to the frame.


sidenote: ATX PSU mounting holes are rage inducing.

Did a bit of speculation on airflow and a possible way to do the ducting(in yellow):

I think the pinside GPU exhaust needs better venting.

Flipped back panel for finish side out, other various changes, and a few different options for side panel mounting.
