    Default Project Fire-X

    Hello!

    After my first scratch case build earlier this year, I have been forming an idea in my head for something, something new, bigger, better. I began to piece together my thoughts on paper, little sketches here and there, a note or two for myself to look back on. You should see my notebook, its a jumbled mess lol but I have been working for a few months, piecing together a good idea. Ive had about 16 revisions to my plans, but finally, I was left with a set of plans I am proud of.

    This case will be all acrylic with custom machined aluminum case feet, potentially space for 2x360mm radiators (one above the motherboard, and one behind the front panel) and 2x240mm radiators (at the bottom underneath the psu shroud and potentially there will be mounting holes for one to be mounted next to the I/O ports). The front panel also has fins which will be back lit by a red led panel assembly. Behind the motherboard will be another red led panel assembly for back lighting of the motherboard.

    Since the beginning, this was a case for watercooling. With the massive radiator capabilities (and a few other features which will be disclosed soon ) there will be many options for mounting various types of hardware.

    Named after my first case (Fire-M9) this project is the continuation of a design theme. I plan to continue making cases and other modding projects in the future, as it would seem I have caught the bug

    Anyway, enough of my idle chatter. This case isnt all about it's technical specs, the visual appeal is equally important!



    (I apologize for the quality of the rendering, AutoCAD is a pain to render in)

    Thanks! lol I will have a few parts on order by the end of the week, have to head down to a local-ish plastic seller to get a quote on the acrylic, but I will have some of the mechanical prototypes cut probably next week.

    on the tip of acrylic chatter
    if you go to a dollar store you can buy a very large picture for 10 bucks or less
    many times these have acrylic sheets layered on them
    worst case scenario go to superwalmart, and (paying close attention to size and cost) get one for 20 bucks that will do 4 full size cases
    much cheeper than the heavy acrylic usualy used

    obviously be sure that what you buy has a sheet of acrylic on it
    learning is good .....understanding is better .....pleas teach with wisdom............................................ ..............calemus

    obviously be sure that what you buy has a sheet of acrylic on it
    Thanks forthe suggestion. The only problem with that is I need 1/4 black for looks/ structural rigidity. Also, those tend to be polycarbonate sheets which can be quite flimsy.
