Deepest apologies club members but I cannot attend this upcoming CES and thus we'll have to see if someone else attending can get a peek at CM's booth. frown.gif Sorry again, but if it's any consolation I will have a much better chance for 2013 in case there's something even better in store for that event.

This is a test. I'm having some real problems with this site. Pages seem to take forever to refresh. I posted a reply this morning and also updated my rig sig. After submitting the reply I had a blue progress bar literally for hours with the message saying "transferring data from delivery.huddler.com" Just trying to navigate the posts I get endless blue progress bars with various messages about accessing various sites. My earlier post BTW does not appear to have gone through.

Well OK that worked about instantly.

Happy New Year Guys. I finally started ordering components. Was it the Rolling Stones? "You can't always get what you want?" Each time I thought I had a direction something was discontinued or endlessly out of stock. And each substitution required other adjustments and compromises.

Pedros I really wanted the GA-X58A-UD7. But almost nobody had it and prices seemed up where I could find it sort of maybe in stock, kinda. So I ordered the UD3R and applied a substantial $ saving to a Xeon CPU (which was only $10 more than the i7-980 that I couldn't get anyway...each time I was ready to order it was out of stock).

Happy for any comments on what I've combined so far and suggestions for memory or HDDs,

Hey Deed. Glad to see someone else STARTING an 840 case build.

1) I'd love to see pics inside the false floor / hdd cover to see how you joined the plates. Looks like machine screws or rivets into backing pieces. The plates look to heavy to bend and I'll have some similar situations.

2) Can I assume you'll be water cooling. It looks like this assembly blocks airflow into the case; front airflow appears to be directed over the 3.5" hdd area and up and out the top of the case so any warm air from the hdds is not sent into the other components.

Sure Here are some pics. I though about bending the two pieces but i did not have the tools or money to let someone else do it for me. I would suggest bending the two pieces if i ever do this again.
I'm am not completely done. I will be cutting a grill where it is blocking airflow because i'm and air cooling atm. Maybe someday i will water cool. But when i do ill have a nice false floor to work with biggrin.gif I could have used rivets but I wanted to be able to take apart the piece easy so i used m4 counter sunk screws with hex nuts All i have left to do is cut the grill for airflow and paint it black biggrin.gif

Thanks for the pics Deed. Drilling all those holes in alignment is tedious, but you have nice clean edges and an industrial ish look. Bending sheet that thick doesn't always give you a crisp edge. I was going to say plate but double checked and up to 15/64" is considered sheet and 1/4" and thicker is considered plate. And you can disassemble.

Clean the aluminum, well before painting and try to use an aluminum primer (although some paints for aluminum may be "self priming).

This whole assembly well have to come in and out to access the drive bays?

I'll look for your finished pics with airflow grill and paint.
