Figure $.0078/mm for the extrusion, plus $45 for the set of back and PSU plates. There's a bit of redundant beams in this model, but as-is, it would cost ~$60. That price includes machining and fasteners.Can you give any kind of ballpark cost as to what a standard ATX case would cost? And does that include panels, or is that open frame?
The extrusions I use are less expensive than MakerBeam XL and will include all required machining i.e. drilled, threads tapped, milled, etc.What's the cost of the extrusion you're using/proposing versus something like the Maker Beam product. How would you compete?
The pictures shown in this thread depict a higher quality and more professional product than Maker Beam so I think that is one area where this case kit would excel.
So, you want a Caselabs STH10 or THW10?Looks good man. Very clean lines. Just spit ballin here but this what ive been wanting but dont have the skill to create.
Dual 420 rads in front and a pair of 360s up top. With the rads above the mb without covering any of the mb components. With your psu shroud on the bottom to hide a evga 1300 g2 and room to mount pumps and reservoirs. Eatx mb tray. Some kind of mesh in front with filters to allow for solid airflow. The same badass mesh covering the 360 mounting area on top. Maybe a radiator chamber below the psu shroud with room for a pair of 360s or 420s. With the same mesh and filter system as the front. Finish it off with a tempered glass window.
Id pay good money for that case!
A few questions - apologies while being a n00b:
1. Are there options to include or incorporate filters for fans?
2. How heavy would a case (including MB plates and such) weigh like the ones shown in post #127/128?
3. This is coming from some anonymous stranger, but have you considered a dual zone/chamber concept, or do you feel that to be needlessly complicated? I love the layout of the Lian-Li PC 011 Dynamic, but hate that I can't fit in my Noctua DH-15 in there. Similarly I wish I could move the PSU from the main compartment in my Meshify C to the back, while still keeping the compact feel to a ATX sized case.
4. Are there options to include or incorporate grommets for cable routing?
