Default Handmade Aluminium chassis Project

[Scratch Build] Handmade aluminium chassis Project



Hi, i am Pablo from Argentina and i want to share a tiny log of my handmade pc.

It is made basically from a 6mm aluminium sheet, another of 3mm and an aluminium bar to do the machined spacers
I am always doing some minor tuning to my stuff but always wanted to make a full chassis with custom liquid cooling.

The hardware is:

- i7 4770k @ 4.6 ghz delidded with collaboratory liquid pro
- Asus maximus VI formula
- 16 gb DDR3 corsair dominator platinum 2400 mhz
- Ati HD 7750 a bit overclocked (I chose it because at that moment it was the best card that not require external power)
- Corsair CX600M power supply
- 256 gb Samsung 850 pro SSD for the OS
- 128 gb OCZ vertex 4 SSD
- 2 Tb WD black for storage

Water Cooling:
- XSPC raystorm cpu block
- XSPC ex240 radiator
- XSPC acrylic DDC tank reservoir multiport
- Laing thermotech DDC 3.25 pump (18 w)
- Bitspower and Enzo black 19/13mm compression fittings
- XSPC high flex black 19/13mm hose
- Corsair air series SP120 quiet edition low noise high pressure

External peripherals
- Dell U2711 (2560x1440)
- Alienware Tactx Keyboard
- Logitech MX performance
- Sennheiser momentum headphones

So here it is:



Measuring with old hardware




Machined spacers






The rest of the components




The stand



Ready to assemble



Testing




Finished at last!
Hope you like it

This case I love and hate @ the same time , awesome looking case! ....but when that dust starts too accumulate down the line

I would have to built an ultra fine dust filter box to protect that system.
