I took heavy inspiration from the Thermaltake Core P5 when making this case. However, the thing was massive, and I would have left a lot of the case empty as its more geared towards custom loops. The Core P5 is also very deep. I managed to get this case to about half the depth of the P5, which I thought was much more suitable to mounting on the wall.
The thing is basically silent, thanks to the Fractal Design S24. It quite expensive, but as I found out it's well worth it.
The SSD-only approach was mainly because I will be using this thing for 2D animations/3D modelling and rendering, so read speed was essential for all applications, along with the beefy 5820K and 32gigs of RAM that I used.
The case is made out of a single piece of MDF, along with 4 standoffs and a sheet of custom-cut acrylic. Two square holes were drilled in the board, behind where the radiator would go, along with holes for the motherboard standoffs, rommets and a few more for the clamps that hold the GPU and PSU in place.
I had a few issues while making this.
The Asus x99a's screw holes actually vary slightly from the ATX Standards sheet that I followed. I'm not sure if it was my mistake on my end or something weird with the X99 boards, but all i had to do was fill in the holes with epoxy, and drill again about 1cm to the left.
The ram almost needs to be hammered in to get the board to actually connect to the sticks. I thought I had got some bad RAM after the motherboard kept spitting '53' at me upon boot, but it needed a good shove into the slot is all.
I sort of forgot to make a pinout map before sleeving my cables. Totally my fault, but luckily I didn't screw it up when following a diagram I found online!
Otherwise all the parts I got are absolutely fantastic and worked much smoother than I expected.
If anyone has any specific questions about anything, please ask away!
