Thanks.

Don't know if I ever posted my existing computer from the dinosaur days...
Anter 1200 case, with P5n32-E SLI, with 4GB Ram, and NVIDIA SLI 8600... Was hot back then in 2006..I think i upgraded mobo when its original casing of Alienware had the watercooling pump fail.
Well this whole thing is lame today...could barely play WoW with medium graphics setting. Ultra was out of the question.
Check out that beautiful cabling, looks like Spartacus gutted someone.


Hence the upgrade...everyone starts somewhere...haha.. no nasty comments..!
Back to current build
Got this mdf sheet...incase i need to cut without vibration..


Drilled two holes on inner coners:


Didn't use the MDF, since i had this part pretty fixed on plywood:

Two screws through 120 MM Fan holes..and 2 screws on the L shaped guide..


Cut through existing cut outs for cabling


Didn't realize half way through that I ate through the metal blade pretty good. Metal circular blades become smaller as you use them.
This applies to the large circular saws as well.


Flipped it over and did other side..


Not sure what happened above...but my guide in the center kind of didn't give me the exact cut, and it got curved a bit..

Used jigsaw for last cut. This time the guide (which is the L aluminium shape ), I put across to stop the outer parts from rattling and screwed them into the plywood.


All cut out:


Washed and filed...Not going to paint the inside...You can see the small curved cut on the left side.
This will not be seen, as the SLightbox will go on top.


But I can't afford to make the similar mistake for the top partition...That has to be perfect.

Subbed!!

Well, I subbed a while ago, I just didn't post until I finished reading all 68 pages of this beast. This has been a great read and you all have given me great ideas about a custom SFF build I want to put together. I will be PMing you at some point in the near future (2-3 months) about where you had your etching done for the lightbox.

I think my boss might be glad this build log was *only* 68 pages of hardware porn, I might have taken the full day to read the thread if it was any longer. Great work! It looks like you are nearing completion of the build so keep up the good work and I really look forward to seeing the final results. thumb.gif

Hey there, I suggest you go check out the Official OCN sLight thread, something I started to document the build process of the famous sLight panel. Here is the link: http://www.overclock.net/t/1338522/official-ocn-slight-thread

Thanks for the link Jeff, I saw you mention a few times you were going to set up an official thread, but I didn't remember seeing it linked before.

I now need to get my thoughts together for my SFF box, and put together some sketchups to see what I can do with it. thumb.gif

Thanks Avonosac...and nice of your boss to allow you to spend some time doing some light reading. ..you will enjoy the rest of the build over here... as things are now falling in place faster. Also honoroed that you put my build in your signature.

Too cold to work today in the garage. Currently 40 in the garage and like 20 outside with the wind in the northern NJ.
Waiting for electric heater to warm up the garage, if it can keep up, and might do upper compartment.

Ok Top partition:


This time used the angled side of the L shaped aluminium as the guide:


The heat this dremel saw max makes is not good...had to stop for a bit in middle to let the blade cool down:


Other side, have no choice but to use JigSaw...and had to put the plywood on right side of bench....The reason is the angled bends at the end of partition makes this the only position, and I have nothing to rest the dremel max saw on the right..


Cut some ribs to hold it in place:


You can see the aluminium scrap that flies off is different in dremel max saw and jig saw. Jig saw are bigger pieces on the right. Dremel max saw is like burnt aluminium powder on left.


Which means more filing on the jigsaw side at the end:


Third side has to jig saw:


Wet sanded it down...really very smooth when you wet sand it..


Back is the top, and the front is the bottom partition of the Case Labs STH10, with no 120 MM fan cut outs..
