Making my OWN tech bench - Page 3

Coming along very nicely.

Imho, one of the more "fidgety" things to get right in a custom case is the motherboard/rear panel assembly.

Your solution neatly dodges this problem.

And yeah, adding the side panel does look nice.

I did this once an it didnt turn out to good lol, I had problems with the motherboard tray bending so you might want to look into that a little more than I did. they really are incredibly expensive. Im going to build one from acrylic soon and just use a strip heater to bend it into a basic 'U' shap and put the PSu, HDD, etc under it.

Thanks smile.gif

I just have to work out the hard drive cage thing along with wether or not I should "elevate" the motherboard tray and have a compartment underneath for PSU, HDD etc.,

I have to find the cheapest way to do so. Time to ponder cool.gif

I've frequently viewed that thread looking for inspiration and I hope to one day (hopefully soon) post my tech bench there.

Got it finished, sorta. All it really is, is a motherboard tray raised up by rubber feet.But upside is...it is almost totally silent biggrin.gif except for the hard drive noises tongue.gif

Will do more advanced stuff once I get money which may not be for a while SO this is the end. For now...

You had problems getting that Dell HDD case out? I've done it before just drill ALL of the rivets out and use a crowbar if you need to.

Dremel broke due to my fail at skills :< And I think i'm going to order a lian li or antec HDD cage because right now the HDD is resting on top of my disc drive via rubber feet with a 120mm fan RIGHT on top of it.
