Just signed up to post on this thread. I am new to PC building (and PC's in general - Mac user) but recently built one to learn a new skill/for fun. It's a dual boot OS X/W10 gaming Micro ATX build. Works great but now I am thinking I might want to build a custom case for it. I don't want it to look like a PC as it sits in the living room - think 70's era B&O aesthetic. It might be a bit more than I can manage but this kit looks like it could be a great start for me - along with a MOBO tray (customised, I want to run my GPU at 90 degrees - angle not temp!). Are these ready to buy yet?
This is my start layout... plan is to have it tall and thin.
That would be an awesome NAS box. How do you mount the HDD cages to the case? Are there vibration issues?
I'd like one like that but with mesh sheeting from:
or tempered glass, is that possible?
I like these cases a lot and the concept is very interesting, but at the end of the day, they are too industrial for my tastes.
I like a little refinement and the simplicity of cases like the Ncase M1 and the Silverstone FT03 for my desk.
I can see these rail type designs for mining rigs or a test platform or something like that,
Pretty generic/pre-made frames for me overall. I have yet to decide which configuration is my favorite though. I would want side panels. All of the things that are popular now (RGB LED, windows, etc) mean nothing to me. Give me good airflow and cable/case management. Oh, and at least 2x 5 1/4" drive bays. Annodization would be nice (especially on the rails), but is it possible?
