Hi, I am Rakesh Sharma a software developer by profession but DIY type guy by heart, from a small town ‘Jodhpur’, INDIA. DIY stuff is my hobby or better a passion .. I have done few case builds, modding and making of water cooling kit from scratch..in past and posted in many forums. Few links are below.. http://www.erodov.com/forums/do-yourself-printed-circuit-board-making/33865.html http://www.erodov.com/forums/new-case-build-name-clearity/29255.html http://www.erodov.com/forums/field-biometrics-project/42741.html http://www.erodov.com/forums/diy-watercooling-tec/43859.html Now I am working on a new build, this time scratch building a Case from aluminum with Phase changer cooling. For last few weeks was doing some R&D.. so now it’s time to start the build. My inspiration for this build is this LD V10 case.. I will try my best to make my case as a clone of this case.. only the laser cut fan grills will be very-very difficult to be fabricated by hand..let’s see.. Just to add that I will not be using any type of power tools for this build..(Cos I don’t have any). All the cutting, drilling, grinding and finishing will be done by hands only. Proud to announce Sponsor for this build : 1. ASUS sponsoring the project with Sabertooth P67 Motherboard 2. Special Thanks to 'BIKeINSTEIN' and 'toolius' 3. ANTEC sponsoring the project with Case fans. 4. KINGSTON is supporting the project with some good Hardware. Here is rough layout of the build (just for idea..). Ok to Start, some half inch square aluminum rods purchased, at a super discount rate from a friend’s shop. All rods are of good quality ..My friend personally monitored that on piece should not have any type of manufacturing defect. Cutting the rods in proper size… Dam they are too hard .. it took about 15 minutes to cut one end of four rods together. Filling all ends for proper 90 degree flat face.. So after about three hours of late night work.. I have finished all the rods to be made in as a frame… Next have to drill some holes, make threads for screw and join the frame together.
