My brother ( Zack ) has got a birthday on October. and his Living room computer decided to commit suicide
Since i love building stuff ( Especially from Plexiglas ) i made him a super cool HTPC Computer with a case of Plexiglas !
Step 1: Purchase List
1 x 1.5 Meter of Regular 4 MM Plexiglas
60 x 15 CM of Black 3 MM Plexiglas
Computer Parts :
MotherBoard (Intel H67 )
Cpu (Intel G2030 )
Cooling Fan for CPU (Zalman )
Power supply (Slim Seasonic 250Watt )
2 Switches ( On/OFF & Reset )
Small LED Strip
Tools and peripherals :
Bolts and Nuts ( 120 or so )
Drill +Drill kit
Saw + Special blade for metal - best for cutting plastic
Wires for LED and for lengthening the Chassis Fan
Tin with Tin snips ( For brackets of HDD )
Dremel Tool + Dremel Kit
And off we go !
Step 2: Cutting the Plexiglas
Step 3: Arrange all the Hardware on Plexiglas
Make sure to think ahead, maybe in the future you would want to add an additional HDD , or and additional Cooling FAN.
Step 4: Cut Side opening for the Chassis Fan
Step 5: Create an opening for the rear bracket of the Mother Board and PSU
Moreover i had to cut the rear Plexiglas to match the Power Supply opening
It is very easy to break the Plexiglas , so be careful when you cut it, especially when you cut one piece of Plexiglas multiple times ( in multiple places).
