[SPONSORED][Scratch Build] Project mATX - Three 240mm Radiators in <20L - Page 5

post #41 of 582
Use this model for modeling the tray. I can verify it's accuracy, used it to design Nova and everything fit perfectly. The M1 was also designed off it.

MicroATX_Motherboard_PCIe_blank_models_precise.zip 468k .zip file

It's based off this: http://scc.jezmckean.com/item/509

I deleted the mobos other than mATX, and the low height PCIe card, made the mobo holes round instead of octogons, and converted to STP.

Mobo needs to be at least 1/4" (6.35mm) above the tray.

How did I not see this early???

I love the splash but always wanted something a little larger, just don't have the skills, money or time to try and accomplish that myself.
Really interested in seeing what you end up with.

Looks great so far - subbed!!!

Saw your post in the Compact Splash thread and you got my attention.
Any future plans to run a small batch of these? wink.gif I'd love to get my hands on a CS but they're all sold ofc.. If so and if price is right, customer here wink.gif

Excellent! Thanks! Now to just wrap my head around how I am going to design the tray and back panel around this lol.

When I am done designing and prototyping the case, and after I become an artisan on OCN, I will be doing what She Loved E did with his case. Sorry for the ambiguity, I just want to keep things kosher for the mods wink.gif

Awesome! Thanks!



Well, how does the backplane look? This took me quite awhile to do. I wanted to fit five PCIe slots but it just wouldn't fit unfortunately.

Will get working on the actual tray part now.

This should be interesting, I was about to buy Compact Splash until they ran out. frown.gif

Looking good!

I'd recommend rounding off any corners like these. Doesn't need much, 1-2mm would be fine, just enough to keep it from potentially mauling your hands when working with the case.

If I recall correctly there was someone on the LTT forum that did the exact same thing you are doing now. Ill see if I can find the topic.

He posted a build log here on OCN too: http://www.overclock.net/t/1521272/sponsored-scratch-build-project-arctic-the-making-of-my-first-case

Not sure what became of it though.
