Ugh. I know that pain. lol.
Time for a steady hand and a Dremel
Back sheet cut to width, height and the hole for the 10-slot motherboard tray routed out.
The inner and outer front sheets, cut to final length.
My god, that thing is a monster. I want one for my server.
So, I assume you are going to paint this?
The bare metal kind of looks nice.
Yes. Gloss black powder coating.
Well, that will look nice too, I guess.
Gloss black powder coating will look great.
You should powder coat it Swingline Stapler Red.
Where did you source that 10 slot motherboard tray?
And, its an epic build... I cant wait to see more!
Probably a Mountain Mods tray
thats one huge son of a case
Holy balls, Batman. That thing is crazy huge. I'm loving this so far.
The 5.25-inch drive bay rails:
dude, long time no update.!!!
I bolted the 5.25-inch drive rail assemblies to the front inner sheet.
Note how the extra deep rails will completely hide the drives and cables.
Another design benefit of the front air duct is hiding all of the mounting hardware.
hey, do you sand/ brush the aluminium?
Yes. I think I used 150 grit on the drive rails.
Wow looks good but this case is hilariously big! Could fit a small cluster of computers in there if you wanted
