Update 13 - Acrylic GFX back plate and motherboard surrounds.
Well it has been a few days since an update so i thought i should do something. I got the last of the acrylic pieces (i think) cut today. Only a little bit of work is required on one of them for cable management.
I am considering going white/blue on the outside instead of black/blue. Couple of reasons, one, i saw another build done and it looked great, and two, it will mean i wont need to buy any black paint so it will most likely end up being cheaper.
Cuts marked out.
Graphics card backplate cut.
Graphics card backplate sanded ready for paint.
You can see the floor panel which is already sanded, i also marked out the holes for the standoffs in the acrylic next to the motherboard.
Standoff holes drilled, i was using a brand new drill bit which ended up damaging one of the holes because i wasnt careful enough. It doesnt matter though because the holes will be hidden by the motherboard.
I will be cutting out a few slots for cable management out of the acrylic next to the motherboard.
This is unrelated but just thought some of you might be interested. This is to allow me to charge my small MP3 player which lives in tha garage for music. It is a 5v switchmode power supply hooked up to a butchered USB connector, it isn't pretty but it was made out of spare parts and so was much cheaper than buying one ready made from a store.
I think tomorrow i will pull my rig apart for final cable management cuts and radiator placement. While that is down i will be running my old 775 rig.
