This guy is just like a caring brother. He offers those templates completely free and the kit is really cheap for what you get.
You couldn't get that kit at home depot for that price.

The kit consists of:

All case panels, accurately milled with a CNC router
16x right angle brackets
21x short self-tapping screws
4x medium-length self-tapping screws
11x flanged M4 screws
16x flanged M3 screws
11x M4 nuts
4x M6 feet bolts
4x PSU mounting screws
4x M3 motherboard pillars
22x washers

and this for only 45$. You are a hero.
Actually you are a clumsy hero, i mean you lost your cape after all. :)

Excelente Casemod parabéns.

Автор NeutronPCXT ( назад)
Thank you so much for the templates! Although I would've liked to buy the kit itself, I want to do it myself. But I think your best project was and is still the 100% silent case.

Please make one of those epic "Flashlights" into a kit.

I thought you used aluminium for your last case build because wood amplified the internal sounds like a speaker box? Not a concern here?

Автор Márk Végh ( назад)
It looks awesome!!! Great job :)

Автор Spencer Hebb ( назад)
That EL wire is so cool, I'm thinking it would look cool in a car interior

Now do an ATX case!

Автор Son Karakaplan ( назад)
This is very good DIY case project. However I want to make aluminum sides made from CNC. Which it could be more elegant and better cooling.

I usually don't comment on stuff but Matt is the type of guy you wanna be best friends with! Great work man!!

Dust magnet!! Otherwise nice build

doesn't matt know to put the motherboard on the box it came in when putting all the components together

There are so many things done wrong with this case.

Favorite part was your clever 12-volt power add-ons. Well done.

If I were to build a PC, I would definetly buy your case kit.

amazing case, it looks so good!

Автор Jaime Almeida ( назад)
Looks cool, hardly functional: high dust, hard maintenance, bad airflow, etc.

Автор thorjoetunheim ( назад)
Is this available in kit form?

Автор Nekros Patatas ( назад)
adding some dust filters over those whole would be good and adding the whole for the cpu air intake as you said, should make it cool and dustproof ^_^

Автор Xander J Bishop ( назад)
How did you do the USB ports on the top

Автор TheBadBear ( назад)
Ive been watching your channel for a while now and have to ask, are your actually an industrial designer by pprofession?

Автор jagjordi ( назад)
what about dust?

Автор Keng Vang ( назад)
next level: make case out of legos! Then rgb led lights. Then out of tempered glass. JK. Love your build so sad the American PC community can't do any like this. They can't even make an emergency flow trip wire for watercooling or power on levers like on electrical power supplies. Can't wait for you to make a bullet pc with a 200mm fan or desk pc next!

Автор Sunny Sabuero ( назад)
add some led strips at the base of the board. so it will have some cool glow light at the bottom. use blue led so it will match with your EL wire

If my rig got put in this case it would explode due to heat lol

Автор Martel DuVigneaud ( назад)
Wow, awesome! This is also very timely for me. Over the past couple weeks I've been toying with designing my own Mini-ITX case. My goal is 4, 5, 6 or 8 tool-less, tray-less 3.5" drive bays with front access...basically DYI NAS with possible options of also being HTPC/media server and maybe even ~console gaming machine. :D

Holy... What the heck

Автор ciaranlikessocks ( назад)
Having the gpu's intake vent be a big open hole is just inviting dust to come in and ruin your day, I'd suggest incorporating a dust shield between the gpu fans and the vent, they're super cheap and it wouldn't be hard to find one you could cut to size

I love this guy's voice! It has great cadence. All of his videos are well constructed, clear and contain hints and tips to make things less complicated.

Just found your channel, you've got some really great content. The level of care you take making these videos is nearly palpable. It really stands out in the quality, and I appreciate that.

Hey Matt! What did you use to make your website? Did you code it by hand?

Автор Charles Balliet ( назад)
Ide choose lexan over MDF since mdf contains formaldehyde and is somewhat flammable.

Автор Its Neight ( назад)
any chance they are going to make a normal ATX size kit? I haven't moved along with the times and ITX stuff yet (never will...they call those laptops.)

Автор Stranger ( назад)
Can you please do a video on how to make your own Bluetooth Speaker from scratch? Thanks, love your work!

I like the lighting in the end, good job with this backlight! And also good project.

Yep. It has to be.

Автор aissa jez ( назад)
at least add some mesh to the opennings to prevent the dust from ruining your components.

Something I'd be very interested in is a full sized motherboard case that could be large enough to support that full motherboard, an SSD harddrive, graphics card and power supply but save space and weight by not having any of the front bays for things like CD/Floppy or hard drives. Then I'd make it my own by adding a carry handle to it, pull out the graphics card when I travel and make it a portable desktop.

Автор Chris Matthew ( назад)
Genuinely loved this video, and the design was really great!

Автор Eno's ( назад)
But for that price you can get something that supports more hardware and has dust filters.....

Автор llamasplosion ( назад)
that pc case looks awesome :D

Автор svampebob007 ( назад)
no the fire hazard is having electrical component surrounded with very flammable and energetic sources. one major spark/mall function and it will burn rather quickly... but then again any case poses the same hazards since there's plenty of fuel to create a big enough fire to cause surrounding object to catch fire anyway.

Well unless you're in the cool club with a big tower and water cooling :)
if there's a fire at least there's water around to put out the flames of shame just like a nuclear power plant.

Автор shaurz ( назад)
mini-ITX is not the smallest motherboard form factor.

Автор ntstudio28 ( назад)
I love your debunking ending!!! lol you tell them Matt!!! hahahahahahaha I love you bro

Автор You ( назад)
The only issue with that is it is too compact. It's way easier to upgrade computers that have lots of room on the inside, and I do believe airflow is better

you ar a genious

Автор João Paulo ( назад)
You and Direita the best Makers

Автор Copy3ms ( назад)
Looks great. Aside form just having open holes on the Video card section and in the back of the case, a filter or two would go a long way to keep some dust away.

I would add fan grills and filters

Автор John Smith ( назад)
Great Idea, giving people the chance to experiment with case design, but please can you remind people to wear a dust mask when sanding MDF. MDF is glued together wood dust, and the glue they use is bad if it gets in your lungs. http://www.hse.gov.uk/woodworking/faq-mdf.htm

Автор Ahapid ( назад)
will a 24,4 x 24,4 x 5,1cm mainboard fit too?

Автор Sondre Bjørgård ( назад)
how did you do the vinyl wrap on the edges of your case? like on the top over the power button

Автор David Howes ( назад)
Very cool, I would be worried about dust with this though.

Автор Just Sander ( назад)
hi, i only found out about your channel today, but i'm An instant fan of your video's, i wish i knew sooner, it would have saved me a lot of money, could you consider doing a steady cam tutorial soon? big ( for DSLR ) or small ( for gopro or vlogging camera )

very well made but it looks like shiit

What about dust production? Won't it get very dusty without filters on the air-intakes?

Автор loligagger85 ( назад)
dust filter needed

Автор Vladimir Arbuzov ( назад)
Wow! Incredible

Автор memyselfandi ( назад)
What a nightmare of a computer case.
If the SSD fucks up for whatever reason (possibly heat build up) you have to get out a screw driver and undo all of the screws securing the motherboard in place just to get at the storage drive.
Also I am pretty sure that making that case out of wood is a bad idea as it would trap excess heat inside the case.
I know there is a huge cut out on the backside where the i/o ports are, but a lot of heat will still build up and get trapped.
I'm sorry but that computer case looks like it is more trouble than it's worth.
10/10 for visual appeal though.

Автор Jake Marin ( назад)
Keep in mind I have not finished the video yet (about half way through). What about cooling? Also I did not see you put any thermal paste on...

Автор Jean Mahmoud Ventilateur ( назад)
I think that we could add like an openable panels on the top like for the aerocool's cases. With metal pieces

Автор sàmeronline ( назад)
Great work, but this is rediculous DIY Perks!
just 2 days after the video is up... and the Kit is already "Out of stock"!!
