I was looking at a home CNC machine. Been doing quite a bit of research and here is a site which has a lot of links from small home built to larger ones.

I know there are others out there so just a matter of finding one that best suits your needs/desires.

After battling a cold that went through the home, I finally got back into the garage to do some needed work. Working with the test piece, I did the basic cuts and bends to get the piece ready for mounting. The 140mm fan is also needing to be cut and that will be soon.





For those that may care, the stock mobo tray can be reused or used as a base. Everything lines up to original spec, would just need to make new mount for mATX standoffs.

I'm still looking at a custom mobo stand.

Much appreciated. I can't wait to finish the mobo tray and get that matx board actually installed.

This is the old piece. I will do all work to this then transfer the mounting holes etc over. Since there are very thin sides, I'd rather do all handling with the 'spare' sheet rather than my final. Once the mobo and video cards are in place then I will have almost nothing to worry about. Just being a little overly cautious.

One thing I'm debating on is putting rivets back in or simply screw/bolt to put this back together.

Unfortunately, I'll be flying out of town for a week so wont be able to work on this until next week so I hope to get some solid work done tomorrow before jumping on the plane. Just need by son to not bother me tomorrow :-)

Thank you CH4PZ! This is an interesting project and first mod for me of this magnitude. Actually, it is my first serious mod to a case other than a window before.

Appreciate it, barkinos98. I hope it will live up to "awesomeness" biggrin.gif

Small update:
I wasn't able to get much done prior to my flight to Plano other than prep for holes on test metal backplate. Honestly, I should have had these put into my CAD work but was little worried about fitting and possible mods coming up while working on things. A friend is looking to build a similar case to mine so I may put the holes into the CAD and have it in from the beginning. I'll definitely have the fan hole in there for final CAD work. It was simply the placement I was concerned about. As I need to see how much room I will have with the top 280 rad/fans mounted. Obviously wont know this until I am ready to assemble.
Really eager to get back home!

Mate I cannot tell you how awesome your project is and what inspiration it was to when I first saw it! I recently started my Prodigy mod and I'm still in the process of figuring dimensions out and so on.

I will use the already available mITX tray to fix the new mATX tray directly onto it and use some blanking panels to cover up my res and pump. If you feel like seeing what I've done you can check out my thread here: "Sith Prodigy" - Bitfenix Prodigy miTX to mATX I have added links to both yours and to Adamski's Prodigies! You guys inspired me to mod mine and I cannot thank you enough for that!

If you feel that me posting my worklog in your thread is some how inappropriate I will remove it immediately!

Cheers mate!

Thank you soo much. I really appreciate it and hope to see your build! I look forward to your build and will link it up.

There has been so much life stuff going on that I have not been able to get any real work done. I am hoping this weekend to get back on it. I believe that I may need to make a custom front plate rather than the cutting which I've done. It's minor things but hopefully I'll be able to determine that this weekend.
