Scratch built Inwin 303 clone

I liked the look of the InWin 303 but it was a bit too small to fit my current rads etc and i didnt like all the extra holes and whatnot so i build my own one with plenty of room for activities.

im not a photographer so im not going to bombard you with 100's of photos of capacitors and arty shots of components

First up cut some 1mm thick steel and start bending, we dont have a box folder at work so i had to do it the hard way.

Also im renovating my house so excuse the mess in the background

Time for holes, lots of holes and lots of measuring, fitting up components etc

Can't wait for updates :3
Only the intake concerns me a bit
Are you maybe able to 3D laser etch some pattern which inwin cases have on the side / front of it ?
Like a honeycomb pattern (well be more creative) or some different kind of artistic sideways cut air holes
The Radi's will have some hard time to get intake

One thing i personally would add, are those spike feets people use to decouple hi-(fi) high end systems and subwoofers, where you can use them as nice looking artistic feets and decouple the vibrations a bit
Those things:


Ignoring the "how much it's actually worth for audio" part
It would give the case some breath room from the bottom - and overall dampen vibration transmission
