[Local only: San Diego, CA] Scratch build: aluminum cube design

Will Ship To: Anywhere

Hello ocn.

This was a project I was undertaking but I've since abandon it. The wife is nagging me to get rid of it asap as its taking up a lot of space in our closet.

-570mmx500mmx430mm
-Cube design, holds three 480mm radiators: 2x 480mm radiators up front, one in the back.
-Mb area can hold an atx or xl-atx board.
-Front is 1" x 1/16" thick aluminum L bars. Sides, and rear are made fomr 1/2" x 1/16" L bars.
-Painted in gloss white (etch primed), though some interior parts got scuffed.


-The front has two 480mm radiator mount acrylic black panels in 3/16". I've made this to a Monsta 480mm radiator specs w/ plenty of room for p/p. So basically any 480mm radiator will work.
-The rear also has a 3/16 acrylic panel in black ready for a 480mm radiator.
-The mb area has a ready fit panel of 1/4" (soft, almost acetal) acrylic. There's enough room for an atx or xl-atx mb tray and a 120mm fan. The panel is blank, so you can choose to cut the way you want.
-Also, 1x 96" 1/2x1/16 thick aluminum L bar, several 500mm 1/2 L bars (these were meant for the door panels ) and some extra ~200mm 1" L bars will be included. Should be more then enough to finish the frame.





Notes:

-The fan holes where done w/ a dremel circle cutter (~117mm). This took quite a bit of practice but the front and rear panels were done very good to match a 480mm radiator. You'll need long enough rad screws to compensate for the acrylic panel.
-The rear radiator and mb panels have wholes ready for 6-32 screws (or M3) to attach them to the frame.
-The front aluminum and radiator panels were bored out to 3/16" wholes for 3/16" rivets.
-One of the front panels cracked when i used a rivet on it. My testing went well and found this panel held up w/ the standard rivets of the same size. Unfortunately, the black rivets I wanted to use required a larger bore and I think the acrylic didn't held. The crack is about less then an inch. You can glue it back together though the panel is still whole. I would recommend to use larger screws like M4 or #8 instead of rivets. Your local hardware store will have plenty of the imperial and ebay will sell you the metric ones at decent prices.



If you want more pics, please send me a pm.









edit: 3/26/2015 - price drop, removed some of the extras to help lower the price.

Np, thumb.gif

Just cleaned out my utility closet and found some more acrylic sheets I can throw in for free smile.gif. One is large enough to make a clear window panel.

I would definately be interested in taking a look at this. I'm only about an hour and a half out of San Diego so you're not too far away. I'll keep in touch in the next week or so.
