Project P42

Level 9
Its time for a new project.

Again im making a scratchbuild.This time im making a dual itx lan case.March 29 there is a lan party near my town and that day its my son's 7th birthday.The name P42 stands for "Party for two "so im taking this case to the lan with my son at his first lan party.

The render.

The case will look almost the same as the render when its finisht but knowing some things always change when im fabricating.This time im using air cooling.

The hardware.

Your right mate its normal steel so you can weld it.

Update 4.

The only thing that was left to do for the custom coolers was painting the fans.

The pictures look a bit off but thats was because of the bad light that day.

Now that everything is done its time to mount it all back together.I started with mounting the fans.

Then the covers.

And last the backplates.

The result.



This was it for today.

Thanks to my sponsors.

nice case building for sure n stainless is awsome to work with when u have the right tools n paints as well lol but overall so far this is looking good mate thinking of building a case but stainless would make it to heavy to move around to me on mine
