salvaging what's left of sweety

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
so "it" finaly happend,
before


after
my sweety got crushed by "aliens"


now it's time for salvaging whats left and put it to good use.

i think i'l go for a hardcore htpc to stand by my receiver doing movies, music and folding
(and some gaming untill i can afford to build a new gaming rig)


i already ordered this motherboard: abit fatal1ty f-i90hd witch seamed promesing for my needs(small, vga, hdmi, able to OC fairly god) and i got it real cheep
i'm alsow gonna give this board a 3870x2 by mai (releas of aoc)

i have no case for it so i tought i'l build my own(cash is short these days) and there isnt many cases out there that would fulfill my needs anyway.

i used 3dsmax to test-build my htpc, size matters as it has to match the rest of my sterio system (witch is 43x34x15cm)
this might not seam to hard at first glance, but this is what is going into the case:
2x dual 120mm rad's
waterpump
600w psu
dvd burner
motherboard (mosfet and nb wc block)
2x 3,5" hdd's
4x 1gb ram's
e6600 (wc block)
3870x2 (2x wc block's)
4x 120mm fan's (more if i can find space)

i tryed using what i had infront of me and fitt it all inn the given space, i dint have a chanse, i had to use 3dsmax and this is what i have for u this far in the prosess



i'm pritty shure i can fit it all, i was wery accurate with the messuring of the part's but no garanties, i might hafto re'think the second rad or just expand the case a litle(the last is most likely)

was thinking to use 2mm aluminium all over and have the sides and top perforated
i'm alsow gonna have it black, dipping it inn some cind of reactive electro acis bath making it that way(not to shure how to go about that just yet tho)

any input is welcome

Yeah get some aluminum modders mesh and 2mm panels.
The process used to make aluminum black is called anodizing. Just google it and you will find more than you need to know about it. Or you could paint it if you use a self etching primmer.

tnx was wondering about the right word for it, and i'l stick to that, i think it will give the best end resoult.

alsow aluminum mesh u know what cind of places sell's that stuff? i was thinking about getting a scool to doo the perforating for me, but this seams like the better choise

AC Ryan is they place to get it but if you just want a few perforations on a panel you could do what I did with a drill press and some mesh as a guide.

tnx and nicely done ^^
but i think if i need drilling i'l let the scool kid's doo it. to easy to fail doing that with a hand drill

or wait i actualy think my grandfather left a mounted drill in the basement of there old house hmm gotta check it out

(edit)
realy hope that drill is still there, couse the ac ryan mesh is way to thin to use for a case, it would be too fragile and get bumpy and ugly fast
then again still got the kid's^^

As long as you have a plan or two you will get by. Oh and you should give your components a little wiggle room. I am building a case from scratch and I always give a couple mm extra room. So far it is working out great

not too mouch has happend with this project yet, as cash has been totaly non existent last few weeks

to see if i realy can fit it all on there.

i had to arange some of the stuff a litle different but i'm still inside my messurment's

(sorry for the realy bad pic but u get an ide)
ps. the rad lying on the left side will be mounted as intended just dont have the parts needed to doo so now but it dos fit

so far so good

the rig is running and i'm done with the OC

not to bad for a m-atx using onboard vga
