just a heads up oliver, if you plan on cutting some more stuff, have a look at the fiber reinforced cutoff discs for your dremel... they dont break as easy and produce hardly any of that nasty brown dust.

http://www.amazon.com/Dremel-426D-Fi..._bxgy_hi_img_c

just find a local reseller (ebay has some cheaper alternatives to the dremel stock ones)

nice part choice, im really liking the msi boards lately, they have come a long way, the rear post code is useless however, when do you ever look at the REAR end of your pc

Thanks for the heads up, yeah the dust is really annoying! I will get some fibre reinforced disks

I really wish they hadn't done the rear post code thing, it took the place of onboard audio, which is much more useful lol.

Update #3 - 11/03/2010



Introducing Mr L. Aser Cutter!



Today I started making the HDD bay that goes in the 5.25" bays.



I decided to use black 8mm acrylic for the rails.



Here are the pieces for one of the sides after laser cutting.



And then glued together with dichloromethane. The one pictured above actually went wrong and i glued on the rails the wrong way round, so i remade it. Costly mistake! (8mm acrylic is not cheap!)



Here you can see one of the trays. I used a belt sander to take 1mm off the sides to make it slide in to the rails nicely.



I then glued the back on.



And the other side glued on!



The gap at the back is designed for 2 80mm fans. The bottom one blows cold air onto the bottom 3 drives, the air then goes to the front of the case, goes up the gap inbetween the drives and the front bezel (due to convection currents), and is then exhausted into the main case area to be blown out of the case by the top rad. I'm hoping that having the hot air exhausting out of the top of the drive bay will stop air circulating (convection currents should make the hot air rise up out of the case instead of cycling back into the bottom fan).



The trays pictured here are meant for 3.5" hard drives.



I need to make a couple for 2.5" drives.



Two fan grills on the front.



I then took it home and put it in the TJ07!



The holes lined up perfectly with the 5.25" mounting holes. Was very lucky on that one!



I managed to squeeze 5 drive lots into the space, meaning i can have a triple-HDD RAID5 setup, an SSD boot disk and then a spare slot to stick in a hard drive if i need to get data off for someone.



The drive bay is pretty much finished now.

Which uni? Most unis have machine shops for mech engineering students that have loads of CNC stuff in.

That 30W laser cutter cost £13,000 and it can't even cut metal YOu need about 1KW to cut metal. Would not like to even think of the cost of one of them!
