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. :)

how long is the EL wire?

Автор Vex ( назад)
Could you post temperatures after at least 1 hour use?The thing looks like it could boil an egg after couple of hours doing Anything.

Very bad airflow

Автор Ulf Nope ( назад)
I think im going to experiment with some of your designs just use acrylic (custom painted) and sheet metal! :P and with the custom paint part i also mean making some light features. (paint one side a solid color, preferably white if youre going with rgb, and then the other side you paint everything but lets say a logo, so when lit up the logo will glow!)

Is it noisy?

many thanks.

Great job man. Looks amazing!

Автор phooopy ( назад)
where should i make the hole for the io-panel if i have 6mm standoffs for the motherboard? I mean how much below the top of the standoff is it?

Автор Joseph Palma ( назад)
Outside of the obvious of adding an air inlet, you should probably also find a way to attach one of the motherboard standoffs to the power supply to make sure the system is properly earthed.

Автор Allan Ortile ( назад)
holy crap this is awesome. i skipped the video from time to time.. does this support uATX (micro atx)?

will it also be possible to "trim" the height a bit? i want my case as small as possible and im using an NH-D9L from noctua which is almost the height of the video card..

Автор PC Stuff ( назад)
Looks awesome!

Автор jlinkels ( назад)
Glueing nuts onto the bracket is a bad idea. The hobby glues available to the amateur or DIY are simply not strong enough and not lasting. It would be better to screw longer self-tapping screws through the outside wood. The screws only tap in the wood, and would remain loose in the bracket. But they would still hold the case in place as only sideways movement (radial) has to be restricted. There is no holding force needed along the axis of the screw. You could also use metric threaded screws. For M4, simple drill a 3.5mm hole and turn in the M4. It will cut its own thread in the wood. Again, there would be no thread in the corner brackets. The screws act like pins to keep the cover in place.

You'd sell the dxf files for the plates so people can create their own case of their favorite material. Or could add that option to the kit since a lot of us feel not quite confident to do the whole cutting by ourselves. :D

does anyone know if you could use a Micro ATX? I am thinking about building a Ryzen build and there are not any Ryzen ITX boards yet.

thanks to this video i discovered EL wire GWAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! thank you!

Автор Rage 9one ( назад)
It looks great, but I prefer bigger cases for better airflow.

Автор MakingxMagic ( назад)
You could get some magnetic dust-filters to polish up the look a little bit.

Автор Lt ( назад)
Can you explain what you are using to seal the panels? I understood PVA + water, but where can i buy PVA and what should be the mix?

Автор Bradley Warner ( назад)
I love this guy's voice

Автор Chaoddity ( назад)
I love the general look of this project. The only thing I might would change myself is the lack of any sort of filter.
If you have pets... or long hair... this case could get gummed up and possibly overheat

Автор ChrisD4335 ( назад)
note worthy el wire only glows brightly when its brand new then slowly becomes dimmer till it stopps working, this dose not take very long

Автор ChrisD4335 ( назад)
don't motherboards often use the case as a reference to ground? I see one issue witrh it being made of wood

Use 4300Rpm fan!
Not automatic CPU fan!

Автор Jacob Short ( назад)
Maybe in the future you should add some sort of magnetic dust filter for the fans if you do another case

A nice thing would to be to add a dust filter as it improves your cooling (on the long-term). DIY? Just steal a old panty from your sister or girlfriend and cut it up ;)

Great build! I have a question though: When I take off the side panel of my normal steel pc case, at the side where the motherboard is, I get a lot of radio chatter in my audio equiepment like my loudspeakers. So do you experience that with a case not made of iron / steel?

This is going to be a huge dust magnet with the amount of negative pressure due to the fact there is no real intake. But I guess you can just chop a few holes in as stated in the video

Автор Larry Moore ( назад)
hi , how much would a build like that cost ? the motherboard , power supply, ect.. from start to finish .. Plz let me know thanks .

i would like a version with a mini itx board, full size gpu (1070) and sfx-l power suppy neatly next to the motherboard.
Yes like a Dan Case a4sfx. but...a cheap solution. That case is my dream but too expensive and hard to get. :(

Автор ZI ED ( назад)

Автор Workshop on Wheels ( назад)
Thanks for showing the process! I would like to one day make my own case, since I have some practical problems that no case on the market is tackling now. You make it seem easy

Автор Zl D ( назад)
Beware, when mounting a heavy video card horizontally it's very possible to bend a Mini-ITX motherboard over time. It would be preferable to add support between the standoffs on the video card's side - you can fashion one out of wood or plastic, make sure it's at least two inches long and non-conductive.

Автор ShadyOrb09 ( назад)
This is really interesting, but it's $45 for the kit, and it'll probably be close to that or more expensive if you were to do it on your own. Getting a full sized ATX case is usually less than $30 CAD, if it's going to be budget like this case.
