eovnu87435ds Posted July 17, 2010 Share Posted July 17, 2010 (edited) Hey everybody. I've been a fan of hak5 since I started watching in the 4th season, but never actually joined the hak5 community until now. Anyways, I've been building computers for customers for about a year now(self-advertised pseudo-buisness). Since I'm only 17, I don't have alot of money, and therefore the only computers I've built I never got to keep(at least it's fun!). Now I document and take pictures of all the computers I build, but to be honest, on a website, or anywhere else, there is no merit to pictures of towers when they look like a machine you could buy from a big PC manufacturer. Then, while watching ep. 718, it hit me. I have to build a custom computer, with a custom case as well! Of course, to show that I can build quality pieces, I want it to be more elaborate than an acrylic base with standoffs. I know that I want to use an ATX size motherboard, and I will be using laptop hard drive(s) since they are alot nicer to work with than full size ones, and I have about a dozen lying around. If anybody has any ideas, feel free to post them! I most likely be using 1/4" thick clear polycarb, but dont think I'm limited to that. EDIT: so I started tinkering, and came up with this so far... It has a bottom base and the top base, separated my power supply which is 2.5 inches tall. The slanted piece is for looks mostly, as it isn't providing much support. Not sure If I want to enclose the top part or not, and depending on the integrity of this design, I may need to add two support beams , one in each corner. Any input would be appreciated.
