    Hello this is the work log for Black Magic, this is a computer for member pcclan, we are both working towards it being complete by the end of next month, it is being built out of an old toolbox, using these spec's
    *ASUS P5Q SE/R LGA 775 Intel P45 ATX Intel Motherboard
    *Crucial 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR2
    *Sunbeam PSU-BKS580-US 580W ATX Power Supply
    *SABRENT SBT-SP6C 5.1 Channels PCI Interface Sound Card
    *XFX 8600GT
    *Intel Core 2 Duo Processor E7200 2.53GHz
    *LG DVD-Rom, black
    *Seagate 1Tb Harddrive
    *Cooler Master X Dream 4 CPU Cooler
    *Pre-Wired Bulgin Vandal Resistant Illuminated Switches 16mm - Sleeved

    here it is in sketchup, the harddrive is the small black thing under the dvd-drive

    the design was a no brainier when you look how big the case is and how hard it would be to cut so many holes so we made a choose to put the dvd drive out of the side and we are going to sand it then paint it black

    Looks like you have a plan, but do both of you have your tetanus shots?

    I'm guessing mesh will cover the side where the drawers were?

    I was actually thinking about doing a res that will go on the side of the case behind the motherboard, it will be a waterfall res in which liquid will enter in the top and will fall down stairs to the bottom

    Well, I think two things so far - this could definitely be awesome, and if you can afford another $20 or so you ought to get a better PSU for that rig. Looking forward to updates - repurposed stuff rocks.

    Ok so we got a little bit done today, we got the optical drive/ hard drive cage mounted

    then we started to try and drill out the top fan hole, but it was taking to long so we stopped

    we are going to try an angle grinder to cut out the rest of the holes.
    thats all for now

    Got some more done today but first, wow is it white out there and Damn is it cold

    got the fan hole cut and the fan installed

    a shot from the under side

    and thats all we decided to do, until we get the motherboard were not going to cut anymore, because as we know not all motherboards are the same size, so we aren't going to take the chance of messing the holes up.
