I wasnt consciously thinking about it, but my subconscious may have thrown it at me while i was brainstorming for naming ideas.

Update 8 - Motherboard holes and case feet ideas


Well i completely forgot i marked out extra places i needed holes on the motherboard tray, so i got those cut out. I also had an idea for case feet.

The motherboard tray. Once i get my board out of my pc i will cut some more holes for audio, cpu power, gpu power and front I/O.



This is one of my ideas for case feet, i only spent a few minutes on this one so if i use this idea they would be nicer.


Its PVC pipe cut down , then i cut out tabs on it and heated them up and bent them over.

My other idea for case feet which i think would look MUCH better would be to cut out acrylic disks with a holesaw but unfortunately i cant seem to find them in the garage. Will have another look soon.

I might go out to the local hardware store and look for some mesh and some edge trimmings to hide some of the metal edges. Stay tuned

Update 9 - Faceplate mounting


I need a way to securely mount the front panel, I'm a bit unsure of this method but it is the slickest way i have come up with so far.

I started off by cutting up some blocks of wood to act as spacers for the fron panel. Unfortunately the picture was corrupt or something.

Me filing down the edges of the spacers.


The 6 blocks of wood ready to be drilled.


I initially planned on having some sort of nut on the faceplate but i think that would look bad, so i decided to try out tapping straight into the acrylic.
]

It ended up working very well, so i think this is the method i will use.


I made the metal bolt out of some 4mm galvanised rod i had from mounting my fans.


And finally some mock up shots of the faceplate on. I will paint the blocks either black white or blue. Havent decided yet.



What do you think?

Looks awesome. The thing that I love about mods is that they can look ghetto right until the end, but once you clean everything up the case ends up looking amazing.

Yes, i think it will all start coming together once i get my faceplate painted, thats the main feature of this build i reckon.

I've made some pretty legit looking (in my opinion) acrylic case feet, and I am in the middle of a worklog for them over here. The main construction steps are in that topic. PM me if you have any questions or need any clarification.

BTW, I absolutely love case rebirth worklogs. There's an old Gateway tower in the waiting room at my school's health center that I see all the time and think "oh man. the things I could do to that."

Can't wait to see how this turns out.
