Banshee, that's incredible! Don't worry about your English - the pictures speak volumes. :)


Edit: now just sit back and get ready to answer all the questions!

What did you make the sides, bottom and back from?


Do you get any problems having the cover off the power supply and so close to the board?

Thanks for the compilments :)


This is a custom-case and not for sale ;)


The sides are made of 12x80mm Aluminum

The Bottom, back and top-cover(?) is made of 2mm sheet-metal.


There are two 60mm fans, rumming at 5V (CPU-fan) and 7V (rear-fan)

Its VERY quiet :)

Hi Banshee:


___For a first post, you sure made it count! Nice job if I do say so myself. I love the custom I/O plate (not the std. I/O shield) on the back for the 1 PCI card you have installed. Excellent workmanship without a doubt.


___Enjoy …

WHOA, that is coooOOOoool!! I was thinking about making my own at one point, but nothing even imaginable as that. I'm really curious how you adapted the DVD drive to the plate and how you connect the LCD so that it displays the title, etc? Is there a kit?


Awesome job.

Beautiful case. I'm hoping to learn from you...


In my case design I want to move the motherboard away from the rear panel so I can use a custom back panel. I'm starting from an ordinary ATX desktop case. There is room to move the board maybe 5cm forward - but clearance gets very tight for the vertically mounted 3 1/2 bays my case has.

(The bottom 5 1/4 bay is sacrificed too, but could still be used for eg IR receiver).


In your design you placed an aluminium plate across the front top and screwed the drives etc to that as far as I can see. Is that right? Were there any ins and outs to watch for?


I might borrow your idea as it uses the volume of the case well - typical ATX cases have a big crush at the front right (looking from the front) and empty space at the front left.


Thanks,

Steve
