How to make BENCH CASE from an old ATX

 

My earlier threads were 2x CORSAİR 900 D (fulltower)an 800D ,an Level 10 GT,

TJ O7 and a JUMBO CASE…all fulltowers

 

This time a small case and a fast mod at weekend..

 

My friend atik wanted a smal bench case ,and not to spend Money.

only with products ready in the kitchen.

 

we used an old cheap atx case

We planned what to do and what kind of a bench.

Then we have overthrowed the case

Emptied the case..

I had planned watercooling with a 360 rad ,but he wanted to use his 480 XSPC rad.

 

480 Rad was greater than the case.and As this was not enough he wanted to use as push-pull and with dobble fan shroud

 

I made a front cover to the case for 480 rad.

.but as an unusual fun shroud. , it was 60(120/2) +120 +120 +60(120/2)

And he wants the pump and reservoir outside of the case , like 480 Rad.

 

I made a tower for reservoir and pump at the side of the case, to use a tube reservoir 250 mm..

 

but he used a mini xspc reservoir at beginning.but he promised me to buy a 250 mm.

And mounted to the case

But a new request from my frend. He wants to use DWD player and a fan controller at the front..

 

A new front cover for dwd player,fan controller and 480 rad..

 

I did all wrong requests of my friend…

We wanted to mount the MB tray on the side door of ATX , and open it with a gas spring arm.

 

 

http://imagizer.imageshack.us/v2/1024x768q90/539/zRdb87.jpg

 

But the side door of the case was too thin.for a gas spring arm.. ı made a 5 mm thick Alu side cover with 2 hinges.

Today frozen cpu and mnpc uses it…on their new experiment case..

ı used the same gas spring arm on my JUMBO case too.

To open the upper part of the case.

What was wrong at this case:

 

Using an 480 rad instead of 360.

instead an 360 rad mounted at the inside of the case,mounting outside ,

instead of swiftech micro res… a 250mm reservoir

ugly glossy black paint

And not working with quite large folds of the hose would it be better like this

but we must cook with , what we have in the kitchen as ready.

and spend no Money…

And my friend was the boss. SORRY.
