    Another requirement for this case is the ability to mount six SSD drives. The original plan was to mount them to the bottom of the case, but if there ever was a leak in the water cooling system, all of the SSDs would be toast. So instead, I came up with the idea to mount the drives to the underside of a motherboard tray.







    Half-inch standoffs were screwed into the MB tray's existing PEM nuts.






    And onto that a .10-inch thick sheet of aluminum was bolted.

    Very cool idea Rich, but wouldn't that make it a real pain in the ass to swap out a bad drive?

    I don't know if it's feasible but couldn't you make some kind of drawer/hinged door out of that idea so it slides/opens out?

    The front inner sheet was turned into Swiss cheese via 9 holes for the 120mm intake fans. The holes were cut with a 1/2-inch flush trimming router bit, guided by a template.

    100% self taught. Its not that hard, really. I just use simple woodworking tools: drill press, chop saw and a hand held router.

    I spent a full day squaring up the case frame, squaring joints, re-aligning joints etc. in preparation of fastening the sheeting.


    The steps I use to attach a sheet are:
    • Drill a hole in the sheet.

    • Use the hole in the sheet to guide the drill bit for the hole in the frame.

    • Thread the frame hole.




    • Countersink the sheet hole.




    • Admire work.





    The case with the inner front, bottom and lower back panels attached.

    A lot of work going into your dual PC case. It'll be interesting to follow your progress as you build.

    24 HDD's and 6 SSD's? wow,.....
