I'm starting this work mod thread ready for my 2 new projects.

I recently just built a PC in a Define R4 - but that was only a temporary measure.

I am going to be building my own case out of wood, and then selling or keeping the r4, not sure yet.

The reason I''m building my own case, is because I want to change things around, and have some fun. I may not end up using the case, but I am aiming to..

So that's my first project,

My second project is a little more ambitious.

I will building a wooden case that will house 3 consoles.

A nintendo wii, a xbox 360 and either a ps3/ps4 - unsure which yet.


PC Contents

1. Sketchup Mockup
2. Shopping List
3. Rig Build


Stay tuned.

Here's my mock up of the PC Case:

Motherboard, HDDs and SSD are stock photos, mine are different but same sizes.

I might make it shorter, depending on the CPU cooler clearance.

Done some calculations.

I can get all the parts cut from one sheet of MDF.

Just unsure whether to go 6mm or 12mm thickness. What do people think?

If you screw the panels together get 12mm but if you are liquid nail's type adhesive then you could get away with it being 6mm panel's as using screw's would split it.

I built a basic test bench from MDF a while back

Here's what I'm intending the wooden side panel to look like.

The white will be cut-out and have blue LEDs behind it.

I love Bungies' Destiny, and so this is what I'm basing this build on.
