Just found out I can make it out of carbon steel for the same price! The only price that will change is the cost to ship it because its a heavier metal

Carbon steel is wonderful stuff, but it rusts unless you paint it carefully. And you still have stuctural issues if you do not cross brace.

Considering to have it welded.

Carbon steel will be riged enough from something this small to not flex he's using tubular members

Why would you want the case to flex?

Part of the design spec is for it to be stacked. Once someone loads these things 10-20 units high cross bracingand rigity will be essential.

Now you are getting into some really messy stuff. After it is welded you will need to thoroughly wirebrush or sandblast before painting if you hope to stave off rust.

Maybe i missed this earlier in the thread, but how is the motherboard mounted to the case. Are you using a prebuilt MB tray?

I would be interested in a case like the original (low in height) for 2 PSU, 1 MB and 6 double wide GPU.

I would be interested in a bulk buy after buying one for testing purposes.

The motherboard is screwed into standoffs in the plexi glass also do you want fans? or just open air stack able ones are easy to do nice airflow in.

Here is the what I have done to the plexi to make it shiny:

Just did another piece here are the pics of my favorite blow torch and the comparison with the melted sides :3 also took some pics of the unfinished plexi glass. Hard to see the comparison since I didn't do a quick stroke with the flame making it more blurred.

Equipment (bought wrong sandpaper wears out almost instantly lol)



Unfinished Shit:



My Blow torch:

Absolutely fantababulous.

So you can craft rackmount versions?  I have a 42U rack and I would be interested in getting the whole thing as densely populated with cards as possible.

These cases are not strong enough for be put in a rack mount case these cases are made for shelf's not to be held in in some odd way unless you get a shelf in a rack mount server and put it there that would work good.

Really really nice Cheesy

I'd be interested to buy a few, but could you post more info and stuff? Size, pricing, stackability, pics with real cards in the case, etc. Maybe you should start a website, because I am confused between the different "versions"?

It's better to be pissed off, than to be pissed on.
