Yes, I used 20 gauge sheet metal. Also remember that the thikness of the material will skew your measurings 1 milimeter when you bend it, so if you want a height of let's say 9 centimeters you'll have to do your bend at 8.9mm and so forth.

also take this support beam into your consideration

450

I overlooked it and had to do some last minute cutting. redface.gif

I havent worked with steel before but have some experience with fabrication. Great design to separate the heat from the PSU, float the HDD's and make it look OEM.

Gentleman,

It is with great sadness that I make known here, on post number 16559 of this fine club, that I will be soon retiring my good CM 690. sad-smiley-002.gif
We had some rough times, she and I, but always came through in the end!
Since 2009 she has kept my rig safe from all the dangers of modern life (including the most hazardous of all: children) biggrin.gif
I have wounded her a bit (broke two of those blue PCI slot latch-things) and she has also hurt me (numerous pinches on the side panels and some scratches while trying to maneuver components in and out).
But boy did I love her! wubsmiley.gif

So I post here this picture, as a testimony of my eternal admiration:
600

Thank you for everything, my beloved CM 690!

sad-smiley-002.gif Well if you're going to divorce this case you can send it my way to New Jersey USA. biggrin.gif

 

Why not keep it as a second case and or create a secondary rig with it? wink.gif

 


The first rule of great customer service is: GIVE THE PEOPLE WHAT THEY WANT WITH URGENCY AND MAKE THEM FEEL VALUED!

 

The second rule of great customer service is: FIRST LEARN THE FIRST RULE!
