just a small update. purchased some stuff to work on this weekend. i also drilled some holes. cabinet color has been chosen. it will be the same color as the desktop so it will match. PIONITE AO360. it's a little less loud than the solid orange. I am still leaning towards using the blue i have for the accent stuff like dye, cables, ccfl.

1/4" - 20 x 1 1/2" socket head screws and the appropriate t-nuts. box of 100 count 6 - 32 x 1 1/4" socket head screws for the rads. I like to use these for the fans. i'll tap the rad so they fit.


plactic laminate and some aluminum strips and angle strips. 1/2" flat for the mount of the rads/fans behind the MB. 3/4" angle for the drive bays. Beware of guard cat and ninja cat.


1/2" flat on some old fans for a template. used blue tape to write on.



used the snap awl for a perfect mark in the middle of my mark.


small drill bit first then go for the home run with the right size.




test fit. it fit just fine.


screwed the test one to the rest and clamped where i will be drilling. i will cut them to size when i figure out how i am going to mount them to the box.



hope to do some painting and laminating tomorrow.

this is not quite the udate that i had hoped. i installed some of the t-nuts for the HDD and MB tray stand-offs. i think i will redo the HDD locations for better stability.

t-nut in the spreader to hold the back piece in place. i will cover it with the laminate later.




i unscrewed the back piece to make it easier to work with. made some templates of the pieces that i will use the stand offs for. HDD rack and MB tray.






cut the pieces for the drive bays and to hold the shelf in the back area. i had to use the table saw to make the cuts since my chop saw isn't around. then files the rough edges so they aren't sharp and ugly. i still need to cut the ones for the HDD rack and for the front fans to sit on. i got gloss black and i'm not sure i like it. most of the pieces aren't in the spotlight so i am wondering if i should change it.



i hope to some minor updates during the week, and hope ti do some lamination next weekend. hopefully you stay tuned.

small updates are better than no updates! thumb.gif
I know what you mean about the gloss black. I decided to go with flat black over my whole case that I'm building right now. You might want to try satin. A little less sheen than gloss, but more than flat. It's a happy medium.
And I wish I had some sort of workshop to work on stuff like this. All I have at my apartment is a nasty, old, damp, scary basement that you have to duck to walk around in. I make it work though. I set up shop in the one corner that's high enough to stand in

thanks, i think i will pick up some stain black or flat black this afternoon. i know what you mean about your basement. when i lived on 13th street in NYC, the basement was as you discribed except with dead rats the size of small dogs all over. i would have to walk down a long hall from the front of the building to a very small court yard in the back with zero sun since it was being blocked by the other buildings. all of that to play stay away from the rats. if i forgot something upstairs, it sucked to play the rat game again.

thanks for the sub PCModderMike.

I am feeling honored to have you all on board. i have seen all of your builds and truly enjoyed them. to have you guys along for the ride is getting me more motivated to work on the box. i am just waiting for pay day (30th)so i can order some more parts. I have enough materials to keep some updates coming until then.
