    Today i totally rebuilt the side pannels... one of those days when nothing fits, and i was so angry about it... so i had to do it right this time! I made them from far better quality wood, more precise, with new tools... looks 10 times better and works properly now (the sliding mechanism)...

    The wood is 10 times better, more compressed, easyer to manipulate.


    Got a template for 480... and did it right!


    Smoothen the edges...




    and the big ass drill for wider and "non-bend" blade for my saw

    And last, but not least, see the difference!!!
    Old:

    New:


    Also, new sponsor... CoolerMaster.. more details tomorrow

    Guys, sorry i haven't been posting for a while, but it was holyday season here in Serbia, and i was kinda tortured by my neighbour i have been planing to rebuild chasis for the case from steel to aluminum, and i wanted to ask a buddy of mine who is professional welder to do the welds for me, but he refused and instead outh to teach me how to weld "If you want to do this as a hobby you need to learn how to do it... you will need it, you can use my equipment!" so i learned how to weld aluminum, and it is going quite well, nice clean welds hehe

    Also, if you are doing something, there isnt my way, your way, his way... there is the right way or the wrong way... took me some time to figure that out for myself




    Aluminum box tubes...




    Kind'a expensive :/
    Also, i will be doing aluminum case, and pics next time

    Ok guys, i did it, i redid the frane in to an aluminum one and it turned out extra!!!
    you can see it on the video below

    https://youtu.be/bEVsWRGQr6U

    The aluminum alloy that i am using is durafix, and it is insanely strong for welding, i did a weld and i smashed it with hammer trying to tare the weld and make the weld brake, the only thing that broke was the cube piple it self... and i used really small ammount of it..

    You can see here, i welded, well its more like soldered only 2 sides, see how much smashing it has been trough and still survived






    Also the frame and welds, few pics... it will be done tonigh, and finally i can start painting tomorrow, i switched entire case upside down... i ended up with 2 cases






    I hope you like it , also guys if you ever try to do these welds, they dont stick to steel, only to "Coloured metals" so you can use steel plate instead of the one i have been using, i used Azbestus boards so i can get my nails in and keep it all at the right angle... Be advised, azbestus is highly cancerogenic... and the fumes are really rough! but i needed to keep temp and it is extremely good insulator...

    Some closeups on the welds, and also the frame is finished, i even figured out how to fix the bend caused by heat to aluminum, tho the bend isn't big, 2-3 degrees it is still annoying and it bends entire body, all that caused because i dont have horisontal cubetube above the components (i left it open so i can tinker with it with ease... i figured few ways to fix that, and i hope you guys will like it...






    The 2-3 degrees influence in overall look of the case...


    it is causing the difference of about 1-2mm from one side to the other and it pisses me off.

    FIX! The simple solution.. threaded stick, with it i could adjust it all the pictures are low quality because of the lighting and my primary camera died... using camcorder to take photos



    loosening of the screw acts like a car lift, stretches the frame, and i got exactly what i needed

    Hope you guys like this

    p.s. the entire case is sanded now, it has been Gited and is ready for its first paintjob... also, going to get stuff from CoolerMaster HQ here in Serbia tomorrow morning

    Shakmods, nice company, nicer people



    I recieved reply from Shakmods and they decided to make me custom cables for my V1000
    Thank you guys, it is more than just sending components, it takes time and effort to make sleeved cables and i understand how much hours they will work on these... Thanks again!!!

    Here is an update, i didnt have conditions for more pictures, and i allreay had similar photos of steel casing, this is aluminum.

    I did few things that i didnt take a picture of, Rails were attached directly to the wood frame but now i added distancers and it slides allot better, Frame rails dont strech the frame anymore but totally oposite, they retract it now, making it more sturdy. Also the rail on wooden frame had its "toungue reduced so it can slide more to the end of the case, some screws got in the way and they are not an option for removal...

    I did the hood from the top, it is now out of 3 pieces, no longer the "bend around" method, and i made a hole and attached the 2nd PSU fan grill on the side. Also i did back mesh for the future grill on the front side of the case.

    Again, this is the way that PSU will go, but i will put some distancers so i can raise the platform a bit and it will allow me to make it 1-2cm wider.




    Again the case half way out, it is a bit bigger than last one but it was so i can increase area where the HDD's are going, i needed height so i can manipulate better.



    Rims to fill the empty space between the inner and outher case, , i will fix them when i finish inner case totaly and i have exact dimensions...




    I hope you guys like the progress so far and that you understand that English isnt my native language and that i am self taught so, point me on any mistake i might have made. Cheers

    Fans fit perfectly Love how the distance between them isnt regular, its possible to squeeze them tight together and i am really good with that

    this is the top one, the one that will blow directly to graphic cards and cool them aditionally hehe




    Isn't it a beauty to see them like this, i will lower them to go at around 700rpm, i wont need them to go any more because i will make a sandwitch out of 2 radiators and the middle ones will go at 1200 rpm just to cycle the air between 2 of them

    It got a bit late and i couldn't take all the pictures i wanted, a bit tired...
    Also, i made my 6th and final rooftop XD
