Jipa - SketchUp'd a bit and here's the result. Diameters are ~40x40x20 cm and it houses uATX mobo and normal ATX power supply. Also see

Shows how important it is to use components - it's so much easier to see and modify the design when you make all the stuff components of their own.

20.06.2008 13:42 MthedVery good
02.03.2008 18:20 JipaAnd I buy my aluminums from here: http://www.lapinmetallikierratys.fi/
02.03.2008 18:19 JipaBoth fans suck air from the HDD-comparment and push it through the back of the case. The bottom and the top of the lower door are open and if I made this then I'd drill 10 mm holes around the doors for better airflow. (no holes on this design though)
02.03.2008 18:11 YarikoNice plan... I just wanna know how does the air flow in the case? Is the lower fan pulling air in "HDD room" and upper fan take air out from "HDD room"? Which I found pretty fool, when taking hot air straigh to CPU. Or are those "doors" open when computer is in use? Just teasing my mind with boring little details.
02.03.2008 17:58 alfonswhere did you get the alu?
21.01.2008 08:00 JipaWhy would I have to do what? The design has no special needs, it's just a compact mATX case.
21.01.2008 07:45 ErrtuGreat sketching! For what use are you making this? Server? Are fearing that your HDD's are heating too much?. If you are turning HDD's so you can "hot swap" them, you'll need to get rid off lower fan.
20.01.2008 14:23 JipaUPDATE: Now with a video :) http://youtube.com/watch?v=csGUiYmam6o Operating the door with that RC-remote was pretty hard and the servo wasn't too well mounted, but that's the idea. If I ever make this the servo will be AVR-controlled so the opening should be more accurate.
20.01.2008 03:52 JipaYeah they are doors and I had a bit of a brainfart while making this :D The HDDs are supposed to be the other way around so that I can connect the cables and change them through the lower door.
20.01.2008 03:22 sciaticAnd: are those doors in the front? If they are, what are they for? :D
20.01.2008 03:10 sciaticHmm where do you get your aluminum? Interesting plan btw, planning to do something alike for my hard drives ;)
19.01.2008 19:27 JipaThe chassis is very simply put together using mainly 20x20(x2) mm aluminum profile that costs 1,54 /m. Side panels would be made of 2 mm sheet alu that costs 30 /m^2. Alltogether I assume the materials would cost less than 30 .
19.01.2008 18:11 laurilrNice :D
19.01.2008 17:47 HaoKiHow you actually make this...;) This looks pretty promising...:)
