So over the weekend i didnt get alot done! was way too hot to be using a heat gun!
Took a couple small deliveries on friday! but im still waiting on my M3 tap.
Enough cutting wheels? been going through these like crazy so ordered 15 or so.
Ordered another 50 black pop rivets for when putting the case back together! got 50 for 3 pounds which isnt too bad i dont think
Also got 20 black m3 hex cap bolts! These will be for the mounting of ssds and reservoirs.
So i cut the right angle to size and placed in! looks so sweet! really clean
So heres a Asus m-atx mobo i have lying around. I did a test fit and as you can see it doesnt fit because of the basement! Time for some more bending.
Heres another shot of how far out it is! need to move it down around 4-5cm
So half way through bending i push a little too hard and bahm! it snapped :'( so annoyed! i didnt have any spare either so i had to improvise.
Heres how i decided to fit it! im going to attach the front right angle also but the glue i used is super strong so its pretty rigid now!
So once i fixed it, i put it all into place to see how it looks and it looks sweeeeeeettttttt
heres a shot of how i got around the mobo problem! just bent it down and under rather than just down! im going to be fixing that gap also
Heres a view from the top! obviously a 360 rad will be here so i need to cut some of it away but for now im going to leave it
mobo tray installed!
Fitted the ssd to the acrylic mounts i ordered! these are going to be sanded, then illuminated also.
Drilled 4 more mounting holes for my m3 screws
With the mounting holes
There is going to be 2 ssds in the final build, but im not sure where to mount them! Which one do you think? either here one above the other
Here, both beside eachother lent up
or here, in the side wall of the basement one either end?
So here i started marking out what needs to be cut away for the top mounted rad.
And measured and cut the acrylic mount for the top rad!!
Thats all i have for now! let me know where you think i should mount the ssds!! Also if i mount the ssds on the floor, the reservoir will be on the wall, and vice versa! let me know
