Motherboard Support:









^ All exposed edges have been eased, and the circle that has been cut serves 2functions: Lighten the weight of the piece, and to provide an aperture that cabling and wiring.

^ The long piece on the horizontal plane will be the top of the optical drive housing, and the piece that the motherboard-rail is going to be mounted to.

I wanted full-travel on the motherboard rail (not pictured) to go all the way to the front of the case; this facilitates inserting and extracting the motherboard.

I also did some work on the HDD caddy.



^ The small rails in the image serve the same function as the clear ones that I made for the optical drive. They will mount (mechanically) to the HDD's and the HDD's will slid "downward" into a slot in the acrylic panels.

I have several thoughts for looking the HDD's in place, but have not decided which (if any) I will use.

The horizontal structural supports are going to be made with graphite tubing with a pass-through threaded rod. I considered acrylic rod, but I the graphite rods are lighter.

...I am trying to shave as much weight as I can...



....looks like I have a bunch more sanding and polishing to do....YaY!


The HDD's should be here in a couple of days, so I will be able to finish the HDD caddy at that time, then it is on the the carbon fiber motherboard and the top exhaust fan.

Wasting bandwidth bringing up the same "update in a minute" post young man!

I admit though, I don't quite understand the design of the mobo plate thingy.

BUT, it looks awesome! If thats any consolation

Thank Repo... I am consoled.



The orientation of the motherboard is vertical. There will be a rail that houses a lighting element that the motherboard will slide into (rails are at the top and the bottom of the case.

The business-side of the mobo faces tha large single opening, the backside faces the window that is cross-shaped.

OH! It makes perfect sense now. I was seeing it in the horizontal fashion, so I was w-t-ef on it. I gotcha now though, makes sense! Thanky.

So the HDD are basically gonna stay in place only because of gravity, you just slide the drive down its rail until it comes to a rest and that is that?

I'm not sure.

I have some ideas for locking mechanisms, but oftentimes they end up having a "golem in the gears" ~ overly complicated and downright silly.

But, there is always the lock-pin type of securing which is what I will most likely go with.
