Need advice

I have this design for a custom case that I want to build somehow, probably from scratch. Spyder is going to be helping me. Can anyone give me price estimates? And advice on the design? One main question is the front fans, one big one of four small ones? And should I put a metal bar in the side separate from the side panel to hold the fan so i can slide the side panel off without having to disconnect the fan? And can anyone help me also with the fan input output, like CFM recommendations. i sleep like a rock so noise doesn’t matter, as long as I have a switch panel for fans on the front... Spyder owes me one of those anyway! So where can I buy the parts I need? Yes it will have a light in it!

Now.......

take a cheap generic case, costing not-a-lot, and use the drive bays and mobo mounting out of it.

Take some aluminium angle section, some aluminium sheet, some basic metalworking skills and make it up!

It will take some time to do, but the more time, the better it will look!

Sup Sticky? I still think you should have gone with Sticky...

Anyways, if I were you, I would buy that $20 case down at Belmont Computers (Our local store) and use the rails and MB mounts from it. Then, I would decide on fans. If I were you, I would use one or two 120mm Panaflo 30db (68cfm?) on the front, one on the back, one low profile on the top, and either a Scilencer 80mm or a Panaflo 80mm on the side.

But that's just how I would do it.

2 120mm sounds good. I don't know about the rest I need to get a job so I can have the money for this little project first. And the name does not come from the car, look up the dictionairy definition, it was something from ARC...remember ARC Spyder?

Marc, I never told you that. It comes from ST:voyager from when I was a trekkie oh so long ago, also from the dictionary definition of Intrepid, it fir well with my clan in ARC. Any ideas on the case? How much money will I need?
