I think alu profile on the inside will work nicely. If I had my 3D printer ready I would just print some brackets biggrin.gif ... If you go camo theme some matte black screws would look great, you could even use lots of them.

Thats what i was thinking also smile.gif yeah thoose profiles needs to be cut precise, and my hands are shaky when ir turns out to precise things biggrin.gif i also have some 10mm wide L shaped brackets, i think they could go on top-bottom and front-rear pannels joints. I see a vision about my weekend biggrin.gif i see that im going to work whole day on this case biggrin.gif

Edit: also gonna drink a lot of coffee to concentrate on this biggrin.gif

Because it's an Atom? Lol, nice build by the way. I'm tempted to try something like this. I don't like any of the cases out today.

So hadnt done much on this one, redid a top piece because of missplaced fan holes and mounting also on USB ports, soing this weekend get some aluminium to start working on combining all parts. But still undecided to go with some kind of aluminium L profile bare bones to mount all panels or glue it together. Also if someone is reading this and have ideas to join all pieces throw them here thumb.gif

So here is the fast mock up with some double sided tape and some one sided tape, also used L type profiles to keep right angle, tomorow will bring some new updates maybe becuse going to get more L profile and maybe some good glue to join tight all pieces. Enjoy thumb.gif

Yesterday spent almost whole day on working with this, and then realised that this is just a big pain in a butt, top part have a broken corner, that acrylic is hard and kinda easily can be broken, going to find some place on metalworks and try to get this case done in aluminium but with some major tweaks and other stuff. But still im going to use it, some vinyl wrapping could mask some places that is buggy. Later ill add more pics with almost assembled case and horrible cable management.
