i havent given any of that stuff much though as of yet as im kinda focused on the water portion at the moment (iknow i know.... all backwards... w/e) and i JUST made the decidion to go with that mainboad and CPU earlier this week.... i still have some stuff to look at before i buy any thing at the moment just to make sure im getting the best i can for the money.

well its been a long time coming but here it is! UPDATE TIME!!!!!!!!

this is going to be HUGE and probably 2 posts with a billion pictures to make up for lost time.

so here we go!

i started out last night by taking a piece of galvanized Steal sheet and the skeleton of the chase.



then i cut the sheet to a more manageable size

still too big but ill fix that when the time comes.

and then i cut out the scrap from the front with my left hand and strait cut tin snips. (the green ones curve to the left on long runs and red that i didnt use go right.)




because it was late i didnt do too much but i planed out what i was going to do at work today.

so i got up early and went to work with my rad and the steal to get some work done.

started out by measuring and laying out the fans on top to mark the screw holes.

i then dropped a center punch in the holes and whacked them real good with my mallet

nice dimples make for easy drilling

so after i drilled out the screw holes i marked where the center of each fan should be and used a MUCH bigger punch to mark those spots.


i was intending to use this to cut to 4.5 inch holes and make it all neat

but that CLEARLY wasn't going to happen


so i gave up on the hole saw and went to the old fall back..... ANGLE GRINDER!

much better... not very clean but oh well. that will be hidden when all is done.


one fan attached.


two fans!

wile i was out running errands for work
i stumbled across this little bugger and HAD to get it. it was only 47 cents so even if it doesnt work oh well....


a chunk cut with scissors

cheapo tubing cutter

DEFIANTLY worth 47cents

PART 2!!!

well thats as far as i got at work but when i got home it was right back to work!


at home having cut the steal to size it just poped in the back and was flush with the outer edges of the skeleton


i needed to drill 2 holes to get the steal to be flush to the back of the skeleton with the bezel on so i grabbed my step drill and went to town!


very nice. (that little pice you see through the hole is because the clamp slipped.)

then i needed to drill some holes to permanently attach the rad thingy to the rest of the chase. so i did and dug into the airplane builders toolbox for a couple of these.

they are temporary rivets called Clecos. they make putting things together and taking them apart when building SO much faster and MUCH less stressful.

any way.

four holes. fore clecos.

that looks just about perfect. but something is missing...

THAT'S RIGHT!
drive cage!
[
i need to cut this to make room for the rad and fans....

get the depth of the rad and fan stacked


and check in the cage.

that works out nicely. the back of the rad lines up with the back of the front attachment point for the HDD cage.

all apart and marked



getting ready to cut. i decided a rotary tool would take WAY too long with the thickens of the cage material. so what do i do?

MAKE DINNER! no pasta sauce though

then pull out the angle grinder

it worked like a hot knife through butter.... and i was done in like 10 mins total.

any way. i then put it back together and took a few more "finished" (quotes cus its not quite done yet) product.

FRONT!


TOP!
[

SIDE!


BACK!


and with the bezel on




overall im quite pleased with how this part of the project turned out. i cant wait to get my new motherboard and all that to get to work on the motherboard tray and to get this thing back together.

i hope you guys liked my really photo heavy update. im trying to make up for lost time


as always comments, question, and suggestions are ALWAYS welcomed

Looks really nice Striker! Those temporary rivets really are great little tools. And for your holesawing, it went like that because you were using a cordless drill. I've had the same thing happen. Pretty much the cordless drills don't have the torque/power/speed the holesaws need and the bit warps around and just kind of smears over the metal. If you have a corded drill swap over to it and try again.
