Just for the sake of it, i wanted to make myself a pc case that meets all my expectations. I wanted an elegant, well made, mostly metal case. I really dislike all the plastic crap and flashy RGB led's all over, which seems to be an ongoing trend in case design today, or even mobos. So i tought a little bit, sketched, and came up with a simple idea, a case with a steel tubular frame, and aluminum/clear panels, nothing too fancy, the fanciest thing about it is the idea i have for a tool-less panels. Basically the bigger holes that you see on the photo, are for cylinders with round magnets. 4 of these screwed onto the panel, and then you just pop the panel on, magnets secure it in place. no screws, no effort at all. this is why i had to keep the frame steel, but i have an idea how to make an aluminum one that will do the trick too. Basically on the pic there's a complete frame that i welded by myself at work, holes are CNC machined. Now i need to make the inner panels, maybe i'm going to make a thread on bit-tech.net, for the modding compo they put up: if you think my idea is cool enough. i'll keep you guys posted about the progress. Thanks for any comments, critique, in advance
i have a very similar thing here that i want to set up mistone, i have the roller wheels for the bottom, motherboard on the top and all the rest below, they had 2 for sale , shoulda bought both, i paid $50 for this, they were originally made and used for bitcoining

funsoul: Better moral of the story is do what you love and you'll never have a real day of work

austin86: So the moral of the story is to be lazy and not have heath problems when your older? Got it!

zila1: That was during my teens and early 20s. I wasn't lazy that's for sure. I'm paying the price for it now though.

zila1: All paid for in cash. Cudas, GTOs, Firebirds, Galaxie XL Fastback, Trans Ams, Vettes.....on and on. I wish I had those cars now. I could sell them and be a rich guy.

zila1: I was making about 150 Grand a year. But I couldn't keep that up for long. I burnt that candle at both ends til I just finally collapsed. I should have gone to school and gotten a proper education.

zila1: I was also on call as a tow truck driver for my brothers towing service. Sometimes I'd just be coming home after an 18-hour day and would get a call to help someone with a tow. I was pulling in the cash.
