[SPONSORED][Scratch Build] Project mATX - Three 240mm Radiators in <20L - Page 12

Whatever you do with the final design of the case, don't throw the previous/other designs away wink.gif I'm crazy enough to ask you the file and have that awesome radiator top cut myself biggrin.gifrolleyes.gif

Really hope you can get the costs down thumb.gif

Hey Jeff. Try to hit other manufacturers, even EK. Another possibility would be a local shop working with aluminum?

Like I mentioned above, it wouldn't be feasible for a large production run. It would require the use of a laser cutter for every case which would increase variance between the cases from my understanding.

Funnily enough, my dad imports accordions, and some of their models have a very similar pattern to
those triangles on their grills. Not sure anymore how they manufacture them though, would need to
ask.

Not the news I was hoping to hear sad-smiley-002.gif

Very cool! Must be some sweet looking accordions.

Well they won't be sold for $300 redface.gif that doesn't include the cost of screws, a power button, shipping materials and just a little bit extra for the time I've put into it. I'm not sure how much the final product will cost. I've got a bit of time to think that through after I get the first prototype.

I'm sure as a fellow Washingtonian we can see if there is a way around the shipping thumb.gif

Absolutely!

If you need any mounting holes for EK products lemme know <3

I think I have all the measurements I need, thanks! Will message you if there is anything else.

Local manufactures are on the list. I'll be meeting with one of them today hopefully and talk about my plans.

That is a massive piece of sheet metal with a lot of complicated bends... to bring costs down you could trying making it out of multiple pieces.

I'm guessing your quote was in the $1200 to $1500 range...

Subbed for hopeful redesign and completion, looks like an awesome project!

If you want some tips or help with SW or sheet metal let me know - its sort of my day job. tongue.gif

The case is actually six pieces total. The main case, the back panel/motherboard, a small piece to connect the back panel to the whole case, two side panels and a pump mount. Yes, the main case piece is quite large but it only consists of ten bends; four main bends, and six bends for the flaps for the side panels to attach to.

Also, PM incoming thumb.gif

How did I miss this? Planning a scratchbuild too, so this will be great, the only thing holding me back is the cost. But remember, it's not about the money, it's about glorius pc master race and 4K@144fps tongue.gif

Jeff,
I like it, it reminds me of the first outing of EVGA's Hadron chassis'.

Glad to hear it is not one piece thumb.gif

Here is another tool you may want to play with that could help you bring cost down: https://www.thatwasrapid.com/SolidQuote/Download.aspx It is an add-in that installs right into SolidWorks.

Welcome to the build log! It's going to be getting pretty tasty here soon! thumb.gif

I will have to check that out! Thanks!



Guys... I believe I have received a quote that is more than fair for the prototypes. Also, they gave me some quotes for different quantities of cases. That means, one might be able to own a Project mATX case for $200 + shipping. I have PM'd Chipp for more information on the OCN Artisan program and I am waiting to hear back from him on that. Once that is squared away, I will look into getting a thread started for the case.

We are getting close guys! thumb.gif
