Update time! smile.gif

Made a mobotray from a 3mm aluminium plate (32x49cm) and installed the standoffs for the mobo. Decided not to use a rear i/o bracket, but instead installed the i/o panel right into the backside of the case;

I've cut almost half of the mobotray away to get a more open feel/look

The mobotray is held in place by small aluminium corners, on this picture the first two are done

And here the third is done too (The small corner on the top right)

Installed some parts to get an idea of the look, hmm not too bad at all :naughty: :lol:

The 5h plate is measured and filed so it wraps around the mobo

Hard to see, but the double bottom is also installed, under the white plate on the bottom there is 15mm space to hide cables

That's it for now..:dremel:

A while ago I came into contact with Asus Benelux. When they saw this build and heard about the plans for the rest of the build they decided to step up and sponsor the project with not just one, but two of their Radeon R9 280x cards! A pair of very awesome cards, that will take this build to a new level hardware wise! Thanks alot Asus! smile.gif














Ofcourse both cards go in the build, so I had to make the holes for them:




Both cards just in


The left sides of the cards hang a bit because of the weight of the heatsink, the waterblocks weigh less, so it should be ok then.


Made a simple lock for the videocards






Took the midplate assembly apart and drilled a 10mm hole (biggest drill I have) through all the plates (18mm thick in total) and filed the hole to 25mm






Made a ring from 3mm alu sheet, inner diameter is the same as the inner diameter of the tube




Ring is epoxied to the bottom of the lowest midplate, preventing the tube to fall all the way through.






The tube will be used for the 24Pin wiring, it should be just big enough to hold 24 sleeved cables, but it's going to be a tight squeeze smile.gif
