Did you fabricate all the alu parts yourself?
Very Good Work!

All the parts you saw and will see in this build are done by (my) hand - no cnc or any kind of automation, just drilling, cutting, filing etc. (if i had some proper machine or access i would gladly use it tho)

Here are the parts painted, not much to say, except the fact it was quite difficult, cause i used junk aluminum sheets that were severely scratched and dirty (well they were actually baking sheets for some cakes)


What are YOU?!? You made these parts, with hand tools, from CAKE PANS? wheee.gif







So, yeah, I'm subscribed.

Amazing, subbed!

Can I ask, how did you make the cut-outs in the aluminium? I've been having a nightmare getting nice clean straight and smooth edges!

Subbed on this! I'm curious about the airtight aspect though, how is cooling going to work?

I will elaborate this further down the road, at this point I can say that the components are in really airtight and _Soundproof_ and _Dustproof_ environment, while being OCed heavily (3930k at 4.7 and 680 Lightning) and all runs cool and quiet.

Not that difficult, i suggest drawing exact edges with sharp pencil, than do rought cutout using drilling and straight cutting. After that you need to hold the piece at the edge in vice (use aluminum L shaped pieces to cover the vice "teeth") and just file the edges down. As long as u make straight lines it works perfectly.
