That was my thought. I will cross that one off and then if comes to I can add it after.

I am liasing with my cutters for an estimation and I already have harware costs from my GPU COOL.


My aim is to price it as low as possible.

Good thinking! If your fabricator can give you definite/close estimate pricing on what it would cost, then people will likely show more interest than if they were pre-ordering without knowing the price. Best of luck to you, will def be keeping an eye on this project!

I want to get the prices finalised before going ahead with ordering and marketing along with getting designs done.

Would you say aluminum at 1-2mm thick be strong enough or 1-2mm mild steel.

Gpu cool is 1.5mm mild n that is strong as anything but obviosly steel is heavier so more of it may counter the support to the gpu.

Will the 7970 model fit the 7950 as well? If not can you add 7950 in?

I cannot find any gtx 690 back plates anywhere In the UK at the minute so I have however ordered

1 gtx titan/780/780ti/770 back plate
1 r9 290/290x back plate
1/r9 280/280x/7970 back plate and
I already have the 7950 plate.

This covers about 9/10 cards and is a good starting point I am just thinking to add further cards to the line-up when funds allow.
a couple of people have said they would measure the screw holes for me and I appreciate that very much. I however think that buying them will ensure I get complete accuracy and also I can send them to the cutters where they can measure them better than I can and finalise the drawings for me to sign of on.

when I've finished with them ill either sell them on eBay or put them up as freebies.

I have been working a little bit on the psu cover side today while I await the back plates and the cutters coming back with estimations.
The picture above is what I have drawn up on paint and the measurements are not final but shows my idea of "flat packed psu cover" all the end user will need to do is to install 6-8 little screws n nuts and away you go. I took the measurements from my own psu and case (750d) but also compensated for longer psu's like the corsair ax1200.

please offer your opinions on the design and how you think it could look better.... I know it can and I would value your imput

Right guys.
Ive measured up for the lip/overhang and found that I will need to leave a small gap either end for sli cables and power.
After doing that there is enough space fo 2 80mm fans.

I might do ones without the lip also
