The problem is that my motherboard which is ASUS CUSL2-C isn’t a Micro ATX based form factor which has dimension of 20.8cm x 30.5cm. So that I can’t see any chance to place it on any barebone case. But then I got inspired from somewhere on internet - which I forgot the URL was - where I can think any possibility to make a PC frame from PVC tube.
I then immediately take off & strip all the devices attached from old case. From this, I started to create an optimal layout for new case & finally I found this one below :
After composing layout, I have to calculate the material needed & measured the dimension in order to define length, width & height the PVC slices. Here below is a complete list of the material:
|1||PVC Male Adapter 1/2" to 3/4" (L letter)|
|2||PVC Cross Adapter 3/4" (T Letter)|
|3||PVC 1/2" 2.5M|
|4||Small Hinge – 1 pack|
|5||Fan with LED light|
Fortunately that I have stock parts #3, #4 & #5, so I didn’t know how much prices expense exactly for that. You can check all of the parts to home depot near to you or check from this link. Anyway, based on layout I then slice the PVC into various small parts which was 16’s of 6cm, 5’s of 17cm, 2’s of 9cm & 4’s of 10cm.
After sawed the PVC’s, I begin to bunch the parts to make a base frame for PSU, hard drive & DVD place.
Next stage plan is to make 2nd frame for motherboard & the rest of devices. Don’t forget to neat the cables & fixing power & reset switch orderly.
From this point, you have completed about 75% of the total progress. The last is to bunched the wrench case so that it will tight fastened.
It’s done & now the time to test it. Apply all of additional devices attached to CPU & let it burning in any way to make sure that the case is now ready to show off.
