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.

2x Zotac Z77 -ITX Wifi
2x Zotac GTX 670 AMP Edition

Level 9
I had to finish the case before the lan and i made it so the final pictures will be up soon. 😄

I have a small teaser from me and my son on the party 11.

Final pictures are up soon. 😄

Final update.

One and a half week ago i thopught it was time to test the pci-e risers and guess what it was crap.The only thing i got was a box load of errors so with only 10 days left the only thing to do was rebuilding 60% of the case and paint all parts.It was working my a.. of but i made it me and my son made it to the lan and thats all that counts.

To win some time i asked someone to make me some extenders but they did arrive 2 days ago and i was already on the lan so i had to use the cables i already had.

First i want to thank my sponsors for making this build possible.Thanks a lot guys. 😄

For the lan party Steelseries decided to sponsor a whole set for me and my son. 😄

Thanks Steelseries and specially Geoffrey. 😄

Now its picture time.

Simply AWESOME. I would have thought that you would have named it the "Armor-plated LAN machine...complete with safety handles"! 😉
"If it moves, salute it. If it doesn't move, pick it up. & if you can't pick it up...paint it RED & BLACK !!"
