My take on the ultimate (scratch build) lan case: the BUTLER P-47 - Page 4

post #31 of 63
I see the bracing now. My old eyes failed me for awhile. When you finish the build can you put up a detailed write up on your front panel. What gauges you used, wiring it all up, etc. I am very intrigued by it. Beautiful concept.

I'm trying to keep all the weight on the central portion of the frame, with the motherboard back plate and the monitor mount plate (not yet installed) providing additional resistance to the bending moment on that top spar.

5052 is much better for bending, and hopefully it was -0 temper. With 5052-0 you can usually get a bend radius down to 1T (thickness) with 6061-T6 you are lucky to get 2T and recommended minimum radius is 2.5T

Checked the size of my DVI cable and I had a choice: do away with one of the exhaust fans or modify the motherboard backplate. Given my limited clearance between the 1070 Strix and my rad, I would have had to move the radiator below the separator plate and have a bunch of excess holes in the wrong place.

I can't live with that. Drilled out the rivets, removed the motherboard backplate, and am remaking it with the motherboard 3" down from the top plate (instead of 2") and a motherboard plate at 16.5" (instead of 15").

Pictures to come (of the new backplate, not of me sitting in sackcloth and ashes while weeping and gnashing my teeth).

Side note: There are no good 90 degree low profile dual-link DVI-D cables. Star-Tech makes a 90 degree cable, but the head is nearly as long as the straight version with strain relief.

I feel your pain. Struggled with my own original desgn for 2 months before giving in to changing the size. Sometimes you just have to accept the reality of the situation. But it turned out great and so will yours. Look forward to the pics of the new plate.

Mobo and WC Install. The switch from hard to soft tubing necessitated unsightly tube lengths (bend radius limitations); these will be switched for hard tubing as budget allows:
