Rivits Done on back panel, Edges needs to be grind off
Just rough measurements for the front intake fans
Some Fails and redos well
Spare metal sheets to cover the back panel
Offsetting the tray from the rear for cable management and hdds
For the motherboard tray I used side panel of the 2nd beige case :-)
Rough markings for the psu. That side panel is a history , color tells it lol
Some other rough measurements
Getting into shape
Made some cuts to hold the backpanel shroud in place
lol at this one
For measuring the motherboard standoffs i used a spare motherboard and marked accordingly
Placing all three parts together temporarily with nuts and bols
Align the slots
Looks just fine
Double checking if the gpu fits
This seems good
Marked and drill the holes for standoffs , i realize i can't just insert them, as these are threaded , so looked so some tools to do the work. That sidepanel is way too think that i expected.
Luckily found these
Just perfect to thread for the standoffs
Few of the standoffs in place , btw i didn't buy standoffs i grab them from the other cases i mentioned earlier
Top View for the cable management
Put some spare 120mm in place, so far its good
all of them are straight...
Now with the motherboard tray aka side panel of other case
Since i only need 4 holes for on the tray so marked accordingly for 24pin eps and sata cables, These are actually ovals
Cut out for the 8pin eps
Started now with the side panel
I don't like the square cuts , so i tried cutting the edges more to circle
All Measurements done
Sorry about the crappy pics was taken from BB.
Im still thinking about the paint, it should be black or white , or maybe blue and white...or something else.. Also im planning to put 3 120 mm fans on top so any easy method how am i suppose to do that, i got the dremel from a friend of mine for couple of days , so hopefully it should be done in two days times...
Any suggestions ?
