Plan.jpg?img=img900


Hello again!

This is my second build in here and i am excited! This time i got sponsored by Kingston, BitFenix and Finnish Jimm's PC Store thumb.gif
I am making the case from scratch and i'm using mainly aluminium or stainless steel.

Managed to make my first time sketchup with the components and this is how the parts will align in the case.



After a day or so i learned how to make parts in SketchUp and managed to do these





A week went by and i was able to start this project in workshop where i have helped them with computers and in return i can use their facilities, machines etc. thumb.gif
I decided to use 2.5mm aluminium for this project (This is going to be a bad decision as we notice later on) . I cut 40mm wide strips and press them into right angle and also made motherboard tray and one other plain sheet.







And yesterday I supposed to weld everything together but as I looked the machine closer it appeared to be a DC tig! I tried to get it working by just changing ground to - position but no luck there. If you didn't know, for welding aluminium tig needs to be AC so it can break the aluminium oxide layer that has melting point of 2000 °C and aluminium in common has melting point of around 600 °C . So I couldn't break that oxide layer and that means no welding with that thing. Tomorrow I'll see if I can do anything with aluminium mig and if there's no luck I'm changing material to stainless steel.

While thinking my enigma I drilled and tapped the motherboard tray. Hole is 3mm and thread 3.5mm.






And at the end of my opening post I'll put a list of all the parts that I'm getting

OK, continue. Had problems with material as I noticed that we had DC tig and its not that good for aluminium. So i made parts from scratch from 2mm normal steel.

I started with trusty ol' Kemppi and I got the cage made and it wasn't easy to make as it may seem. I noticed that if any dimensions are off and you don't triple check them you are going to get troubles. Cage is little skewed but I will be able to fix it smile.gif And some pictures...











No reason to polish it up yet because if something goes terribly wrong it would be polished for dumpster (knock on wood) biggrin.gif



Had to weld some weird MacGyver patents to table so I could straighten the case.




I also was yesterday in workshop but I forgot both memory cards home, so no pictures of that then mad.gif But I found old and mostly broken stuff from my closet and I managed to see how the parts really go in there and it was awesome smile.gif



P.S.
A little conundrum for you guys (and gals?). What are these parts for?

Hooray, I got some stuff done today and even had few ideas biggrin.gif Mostly I just got so much figured out how to do some tricky places. I also welded motherboard tray holders successfully in place and made rear panel and supports for it. Didn’t have time to take photos of rear panel as time just flied by and I realized it was Valentine’s Day and clock was already 18:15. Well let ‘s just say my wife was not that happy about that.

Well any way, here is some photos that I managed to take.










BUT WAIT! There is more… When I got home I noticed that there is package for me tongue.gif It was from Jimm’s PC Store and I remembered that I ordered rad’s, tubing and some ATX/VGA male & female pins  Got few pictures of them too.

Today was the day I was waiting for. UPS brought me a package today but it was smaller than what I was waiting for, later I found out that there was second package coming

But what was in it? Well RAM of course, 16GB HyperX Beast memory, KHX16C9T3K2/16X to be exact Pictures will follow later.


Thank you Kingston for sponsoring my build!!

Not so much of interest in here? But anyway's, I have been making progress even I haven't been updating every little move I make biggrin.gif Recently I got some old stuff sold, enough to buy motherboard, pump and top for it smile.gif I have also made front cover and have been designing a place for fan controller on the front. I also received SSD's and ram from Kingston and I have taken photos from them. I will be writing a small unboxing and review of them when I get my build assembled in point where I can start installing OS for testing smile.gif

But now some sneak peek photos of the Kingston's products review thumb.gif
