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.
