    Default [Scratch case] Project Duplex

    Hi,

    So this is my new Project for the Cooler Master mod competiton. I still have a bit to design but will start fabricating soon.

    It's called Project Duplex and will be a two faced case.
    -On one side the motherboard, on the otherside a GPU and ssd's.
    -Two seperate loops with a 240radiator each.
    - WIll be made out of aluminum and acrylic
    - Most of the watercooling will be hidden

    Fabricating will start soon!

    Finally an update! Was a lot harder to get the profile than i thought. Living in the country side has its drawbacks

    First i would like to say a big Thanks to OCZ and Mr J. for believing in me and sponsoring me with a 256GB Vector drive. Will take some nice pictures of it as soon as i get it back. Took it to a place to make it fit the build a bit better. More on that in another update


    The profile, Ordered 2mm thick profile but when i got it it was only 1,5mm. Oh well, would have been nice with 2mm for threading but 1,5mm will be enough.... i hope.


    after cutting all the profiles with a hand saw and I milled them to the right angle and size.


    De burring all the edges


    All profiles except one


    Welding it all together. Was too optimistic with the welding. I did not think it would warp as much as it did. All in all it was only a mm or 2 off but due to so many angles and lengths it looked so crooked I did not wanna use it.


    Plan B: Cut off all the legs, straighten out one leg that was a bit warped. The rest were fine. Then mill all of the legs at once to make sure they are all the same length and straight

    Decided instead of welding i would make inserts to bolt into the profile and into the base and top. This way it's easier to keep straight and also a lot easier when its time to paint. Should have thought about this before


    Tapping the inserts



    All done. Still need to clean up to get it looking really nice but will leave that until its time to paint


    The base

    Made a 2mm sheet and pressed it inside the profile, welded it and after milled it straight. If i can get another profile i might make a 45 degree cut instead. Would look a lot nicer.


    Time for some sheet metal work. Sticking with 2mm aluminum. Don't know what this is called but it is very useful.



    The panel is divided into 3 pieces for now while i work with the pieces. I might weld them together at a later stage. Still need to drill a lot of holes and cut some openings in them.


    Drilled and getting ready to tap



    Had to try a mobo on it. Case looks huge and it is a bit big but u think it will shrink a bit once i start adding things to it

    So a very small update. Have been busy helping mum and dad move house, so have not had any time for modding but picked something up on Friday that i thought i would share with you.

    My first part for the build, a 256GB Vector drive.


    Content: SSD, a mounting plate, screws, a sticker, a manual and a key for acronis true image


    The drive, looks great but didn't really fit the black and red build i'm doing. so decided to make some minor changes.


    Didn't wanna go too crazy with these as i want it to look enough original but still fit the design
    A solid black one, this was very hard to photograph, probably took 50 photos and didn't get a single good one. Need to read up on how to take proper photos




    A black metallic one



    Made enough stickers so i have a few to mess up, or if i wanna make a small raid

    Nice work! Working on my own project ATM, you have some nice tools to work with there! Maybe just a bit jealous If I knew how to weld, I would love to do some of that aluminum work!

    Thx for all the comments guys!

    Hey guys,

    Finally an update!
    Recently bought a house and have been moving things (mostly to the garage) so now i can start modding more and close to home so updates should be more frequent now

    After thinking a while about the front and the back panel i decided the best way would be to have them water cut, i have countless times milled thin aluminum sheet and it usually ends with the flute snapping. Still need to cut a lot of holes in the back panel for all the connectors but i will do that at a later stage


    One step forward two steps back, or however the saying goes. I wasn't very happy about the shape of the frame and the quality of the work i had put in it so i sat down and re-drew the frame and decided it was time for plan C. This time it is made from a 10mm aluminum sheet, it's 15mm wide. I changed the angles a bit and shortened it a bit length and depth wise, the width it still the same


    Time to drill some holes


    One drilled, one to go, hopefully it fits!


    Time for some threading, i always use the cordless drill to tap with, so far i have never snapped a bit with it and its so much faster.


    Had to change the "shape" of the mill so i could drill and tap the support bars


    The support bars


    Done


    Seems like it fits!


    So much better than the other frame, a lot of work but now i like it and it won't bug me anymore.


    Bottom plate for the frame, drilled and counter sunk



    Perfect fit except one hole which i need to file a bit.



    Old vs new, i don't know what you guys think but i like the new one a lot more


    New part arrived!


    Another box in the box


    Everything is very well packed


    Lots of cables with it, needs some sleeving though


    Love the brushed steel look on the top of it




    Scale photo


    More updates coming soon!

    Very sad news about OCZ, the only SSD's i've owned are OCZ and i have been very happy with them.
