you could set it up like the stinger site

that stinger website is ugly.

and it'll be showcasing it so it'll have a very artistic feel about it, like those sites with not much writing but alot of design, pictures, simplicity.

you'll see. i already got a picture in my head about it

*Cough*upload pics*cough*

That's a great offer there pato and couldn't go to a more deserving fellow modder!

I like the sound of the design Syrllian.

Gotta say I am jealous that you have sold more cases than me...

RE websites. Having one is only the beginning. It is truly a fulltime job to maintain at least in my limited experience....and something I wish I knew more about.

Take a look at this guys site He's got a real interesting slant on this whole promotion thing--he runs a weblog and mails the people on his contact list to build interest about a project--then puts the opus up for auction on eBay after mass mailing all those who have expressed interest in his work...

Something like that makes sense to me--because otherwise the only way to get exposure and hits is to pay for it.

Can't wait to see some pictures!

Thanks for the props CyberDruid.

Hmmm... money is not what I am really after... it is space. The truth be known I am slowly being over-run by my Passion... I live in a tiny house and I am quickly running out of space.

I really, really, really love making and building things. If I can re-coup some of the money I spend twiddling and fiddling then I am all for it. I have made a couple of bucks - literally a couple...okay maybe a few, but no more. I am not a good businessman as economics is somewhat of a schism to me.... it is the inherent greed factor that resides in us all (no offense to anyone... it is what it is) that turns me off.

pato88 has been exceptionally gracious, and I will make it up to him in time.

Thanks for linking that site. That KB is just amazing! I'm gonna go prowl around it some more in awhile.

Oh Great! Now that you have shown me that I'm probably gonna go off on a wild tangent.

Okay... I may get flamed to a charred husk for this, but I also make jewellery. Mostly necklaces and bracelets.... erm... for those that scoff (and I understand why one would) Hand-made jewellery is a REALLY BIG HIT WITH THE LADIES! I crap you not.

The ebay deal is really a good idea...

Well, I'm off to build for awhile after a few more posts. Thanks again for stopping by Maestro.

Per your request.



Prior to continuing I assembled the panels with tape to ensure that all the pieces aligned properly.





It is time to focus on the motherboard tray and the standoffs that I will be using. I have gone back and forth with myself on this… all over 3/8â€.

I was originally going to use 1†SST standoffs, I changed to 5/8†aluminum, and then back to the 1†SST. Below is an image of the usual suspects. In the end the tall one was the winner.



I use a template to align the holes so that they mate with the motherboard correctly. I drilled the holes for a MATX form factor… just in case.



Here are a couple of shots showing the mounted standoffs and a test fit with a MATX mobo.



The unit partially re-assembled to test the fit for the rear I/O panel bracket

Outside: Inside



Once I gauged the fit properly I drilled the holes for mounting the panel



After mounting the panel I used the motherboard tray and the mobo itself to gauge the height for the rail that will support the mobo tray on the back panel.



…then it was time to ensure that the fitment was square along the horizontal plane (vertical in the picture – horizontal when oriented for use).



here is the rear panel I/O bracket and the rear motherboard support rail mounted in place. Note that all metal and alloy parts will be primed and painted.



Oh looky… what do we have here? …there’s trouble…



Then came the laborious process of softening all the edges of the mounting braces and the mobo rails. One can see in the image that the change is subtle, but the overall appearance is greatly changed when all the pieces are in place – no so many harsh angles.

In hindsight I would not have done it this way. I would have looked for hardware that already had the shape that I desired. This took a lot of time and almost an entire grinding wheel...



After letting all hardware soak in hot soapy water overnight, they were thoroughly scrubbed and put in their underoos – primed.



Almost there….

I still have the cages for the HDD’s, optical drives and the base for the PSU to sit on that need to be fabricated. That will be in the next update toward the end of this week.

This project is taking longer that I imagined….such is life. I don’t mind, my concern is with the buyer…Take heart, I am on the last lap and it will be worth your while in the long run. I will PM you with more specifics in a day or two.
