Looks beautiful! I really want to make a case like that myself, but right now I dont have the time, skills, tools, etc etc. I got a one month vacation from work comin up...maybe its time... Anyways, I got a few comments and questions for you, here they are in random order:
It looks to be quite big, what are the dimensions? Is there a reason you chose to make it so big?
Im not worried about EMI, but Ive heard lots of talk about it. Have you considered doing anything to lower EMI output?
How many hours did you put into it? Do you have professional tools at your disposal or just basic power tools?
Do you think it would be possible to build it without the use of a mobo tray? Im sure I could get my hands on one, but I think it would look really nice to go without one.
You dont have to answer my questions...mostly Im just curious. Thanks
Thanks a lot! I made the case very big to fit my decorations and also because then I could fit a large watercooling system completely inside
Can't remember the exact dimensions but I think they were: 100cm (H), 60cm (D), 29cm (W)
I thought about soldering a wire from the mobo tray to the drive bays and from the mobo tray to the powersupply's metal plate. Many people have made their cases completely w/o metallic mobo tray so I think it's way possible.
I put propably 200-250hours to this project. I don't have really pro tools because I'm just a amateur with woodwork. I had a small upright drill and a milling cutter. Of course i had all the basic tools like hammer, hand-held drill, jigsaw etc.
edit: I misremembered the width, it was 29cm instead of 25cm
