I stay true to myself and my style, and I am always pushing myself to be aware of that and be original. - Aaliyah
I have always been a little different when it comes to style and originality, same goes for my PC. I recently had you guys vote on a few custom cases I designed (http://pcpartpicker.com/b/Tq6hP6), but didn't get enough votes to choose, so I ended up choosing this one. I am glad I did so too, I didn't have to buy any new components or change anything which was nice although it would be nice to have an intel processor.
Starting from the fifth photo, I have the order of which the case was made (thanks to Geator Machining and Manufacturing). It was first cut out with a automated stamp machine starting from a sheet of .08 inch thick sheet of aluminum. After that they moved the cut outs to a little stamp to cut tabs holding access metal to the sheet. Next they went through a rotary sanding machine were it got the awesome brushed look. Then the motherboard standoff holes got tapped. The next picture was a look of the program that runs the bending machine and was a cool machine because there are arms in the back that move to rest the part on so the bend is almost perfectly placed every time. After that came the tough part of getting the graphics card holes drilled and tapped and we couldn't do that before the bending because the holes were to close the bend and would ablong. After the long process of trying to figure that out, the case got moved to the chemical baths where it got all prettied up.
Assembly was actually pretty tough trying to plug in all the little front I/O cables in and trying to cable manage, but I think it turned out amazing!
Hopefully in the future, I will be able to make some custom sleeved cables to the right length and color so it will tighty everything up. I'll also try to get a better PSU and SSD but collage is the priority right now.
If you have any questions or suggestions, don't be afraid to COMMENT also don't forget to LIKE either, I want the world to see this piece of art!
