Project Nstalgic: Scratch-built Case, Desk, Passive LCS on Copper Tubing [ SCRAPPED ]

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hi everyone!

          Welcome to Project

So, I have always wanted a case that would work for me.
Tried out quite a few cases - modded some of them too to no avail...
 
So, here I am. Trying to make something that would work for me:
Conceptual Design and Modelling

Always loved the idea to touch the design in real life, this is where it all began !

Work started in July 2013 with the Stainless Steel frame  

Working with stainless steel wasn't easy and couldn't have done it without a former colleague and a dear friend.

So here are the things you can look forward to on this project:

 

CASE

  • 90 degrees rotated mobo. Inspired by SilverStone's RV-01
  • SSD/HDD mount behind the mobo tray. Inspired by Linus & Fractal Design's Core 1000 mounting.
  • Passively Cooled Loop with at least 2 480 rads, because I'm one of those silent freaks.
  • Total build should be cooled by no more then 3 120mm fans, NF-F12's should do wonders with my air duct system.
  • Two top left 6.3mm ports for my HD598 and XLR mic along with four usb 3.0 ports. Explained here
  • One 5.25" bay for my BW-12B1LT. Well if you are going to put a odd, better make it rare & hard to find. 
  • A metal structure! No wood. No Plastic. Something that's also BIG enough to put 480 RAD's, lots of em !
  • Angled front window to make the case look leaner then it is and to show off 400mm T-Virus from front and left 
  • Custom 11 Litre Reservoir, check it out here

DESK

  • Desk that's big enough to hold 2x 27" displays, 3x large vintage C/L/R speakers AND this case on top of it !
  • Fully modular design for easy disassemble and installation.
  • Stainless steel frame with 10mm tempered black glass top.
  • Design inspiration drawn from my childhood wonder the great Hardinge Bridge.

Well this is just plain awesome. 

So are you buying the pieces of aluminum or whatever and manufacturing them to be said shape yourself or what?

Looking forward to it.

Awesome. How much did all this cost (so far)? xD

So are you going to have the 3 fans as intake and have the air get pushed through the rads?

The 3 NF-F12's will draw air out of the case through the ducts I am working on. As u can see in the last pic, back side of the case is empty because that's where the 2 480's will stand !

They will function like the mesh on most cases but instead they will draw cool air from outside to the inside of the case due to subtle negative pressure inside.
