[SCRATCH] [Beginner] Thin Mini ITX Build - Slim as Air - Page 10

Are you going to use the bolts to also connect the top of the casing and then flip the case upside down so you don't see the bolts or are you planing on doing something different.

I'm thinking magnets but I have another idea in mine for a double panel

You could put the magnets in the acrylic with shielding so it doesn't affect the internals.
Using magnets alongside electronics is not a very good idea and magnets on aluminum won't be/stay together strong.

PROGRESS HAS BEEN MADE!!

BTW magnets won't affect nothing as long as they are 3-4cm apart from your HDD biggrin.gif

I used door magnets to hold my wooden case's side panel on place... thumb.gif

Magnets shouldn't effect me what so ever as I am using an SSD smile.gif

Anyway, spent basically all day working on it today (I didn't start till like 12:30 but worked on it till like 7).
First off, squaring it up! I sandwiched the 3 pieces together and filed away until they were all level and square, that took a while!!
Next, onto the holes for piece 2, I put the now identical (except for the holes, yet...) piece 2 on top of piece 1 (containing the holes) and drilled them so they are in the same position.
Then I marked out the wholes to drill for the fan to breathe and punched and drilled them, followed by a sand, polish and test.
Onto the SSD mounting, thank you OCZ for also putting screw holes on the bottom of the SSD or this would have been a lot harder, these screw holes are countersunk so you cant really see them smile.gif

I will continue on it tomorrow smile.gif

Now for teh pics wheee.gif








P.S I don't have the best lighting so the colours look a bit funny.

Looks good how is the height so far?
Now make a bumper, drill out the I/O and add some intake fans and you will be set.
If you like it shinny you can polish it to a mirror finish or you could have it nickel plated.

Okay boss...

Kidding, how would I go about getting a mirror finish or getting it nickel plated?

Polishing is just moving to a lower grid so the surface will get smoother and smoother.
It is the same as laping the base of a cooler.
Nickel plating something can't really be done by yourself but there are companies that can do it for you.

Just looked that up, my eyes hurt from poor design puke.gif
This is the case mod section, custom chassies are how we roll, this will look very different when finished.
