I've finished drawing out all the measurements for the case, it took longer than it should have because I added 10mm of width to make sure there were no clearance issues with the USB headers and PCI slots.
 
Then i got to sawing all the various sized 1m long angle aluminium.

All the lengths filed to their size and ready for scribing.

Since last update I've been tapping M5 threads. The case still needs a few parts filed before they will fit.

Since last update I have sawed and filed designs into all the right angle aluminium.

The lengths were sawed close to the scribe lines, then rough filed, then fine filed, then sanded smooth.

I like how clean this fan grill area turned out, too bad it wont be seen.

The H100i's tubing looks real nice but they are a bit of a hassle to work with.

Next up is making the 3mm aluminium front and back plates.

Work has been done on the front plate.

I marked out the design the same way as i did with the XOI build by tracing over an iPad,and I

realised after I could have printed out the logo instead, It worked out either way.

I've been working on sleeving my sleeved cable extensions.

The best part about these components is that they have neutral colours and will work great with the orange without needing to paint.

The case is not at all far from complete, and there will be another update shortly.

 

Fun fact, a 900D side panel makes for a good photo backdrop.

I just finished making the GPU mount and acrylic panels for the case.

This is a guide that came in handy with stopping the drill bit walking from the marking.

I found a easy way of doing these kinds of cuts, First scribe a line along the longest part, then use a coping saw to cut the shorter lengths

then snap and file, this saved a lot of time especially when cutting the air intakes.

Drilled a spot for the power button, its at the rear above the motherboard IO.

Since last update I have been painting the cases aluminium. I had quite a setback in that I used "Paint + Primer" paint and after I finished the paint then started to assemble the case I found the paint did not stick to the aluminium, and I had to scrape, thinners and sand all the paint off and start again.

Ford Octane Orange is the orange I'm using and also flat black.

Thank you to everyone that followed and commented on the build, it made the process all the better!

 

The build is now complete, and I have just finished assembling the system. Cable management in this build turned out to be quite a challenge but worth it in the end, I also like that the PSU is half the length of the case.
