Next up are the 5.25-inch drive rails for the four bottom mounting plates.




These (unfortunately) required a ridiculous amount of time to complete.

The fan covers are the last of the aluminum parts (yippee!):




I used a 1/2-inch router bit and an old router template to cut the wiring and tubing slots.








Now I just need to (re-)prep everything for powder coating and send them all off to the painter's.

Its time to start making some sawdust!

Ripped and thickness planed some 1x8-inch red oak into 1.5-inch wide boards to be used as the lower case face frames.




Pre-stained the wood and drilled the pocket holes.






The bottom of the case was also drilled for pocket screws.




Face frames were assembled with some glue and screws.




A homemade depth gauge was fashioned from some rubber stoppers/bumpers.




The depth gauge was used to drill holes for #8 threaded inserts on the inside of the face frames. A hex driver made the task of screwing the inserts into the wood easy.




The lower case face frames and bottom all assembled.

fyi, I am coming over to steal your tools I got a pair of saw horses i gotta put away at night.

When you plan your stuff are you concerned about loop size or do you just kind of assume you may have to buy more pumps in order to facilitate the overall aesthetic?

Not concerned at all with the loop sizes in this beast (three loops with redundant pumps each cooled by quad 140mm radiators).


The top case was built the same way as the bottom.

Worked on the plywood panels that attach to the frames onto which the aluminum mounting plates are attached.









#8 threaded inserts were installed by "pulling" them into the plywood (from the back) by simply screwing in a #8 bolt.






The plywood panels are bolted to the inside of the case frame with six stainless steel socket cap screws via threaded inserts.




And the aluminum mounting plates are then bolted to the plywood panels (also with stainless steel socket cap screws) via threaded inserts.




All of this modularity allows for easily switching to different mounting plates and/or panels in the future.

The back panel of the top case required three router jigs for the PSU mounting plate, 10-slot motherboard tray and 92mm fan holes.











Rear panel can be rotated for a vertical motherboard mounting orientation.

Another vertical member was added to the opening in the front of the case and the front panel was fabricated just like all the others.
