@ Paulie_au, sweet
Aldi Modd Tools Bargains
If you don't already have some must have basic tools, these are of good value
Aldi Saturday sale
I've never done anything like this before, but I enjoy making things.
So I am kind of interested in this.
Running next year is cool, gives me plenty of time to get organised.
@ millen, sweet
How about this one?
I think the balsa wood I made the backplate and side braces, plus glue, would have cost me about 8 bucks total
H70 push/pull AIO ( with adapters to run 14o mm fans ) and EVGA SC GTX660. Silverstone 450W SFX PSU overhanging the board at the back. This did eventually have a Z board and 4790K in it but from memory it was only a H110 and i3 or something in these pix.
I even had a couple of 3.5" drives in there !!
The thing sticking out of the box is the power button
So much detail Kev
1st post updated with entrants so far , let me know if anything changes gents
still plenty of time to join in the fun & games
Fancy. I had a PC in a cardboard box for a while, and would have to reach in with a screw driver to bridge the pins to turn it on. Then just last year, I built a PC in a plastic box, and instead of having to do the pin-bridge whenever I had to turn it on, I set the bios to turn the PC on automatically whenever there was a power-outage, and just pulled the power plug to turn it off. Genius I reckon!
Solid effort Ratzz
Alas my next weekend off isnt for another 3 weeks so its going to take me a while
Ratzz comes out hard with prior work.
Don't give too much away mate, you'll give the competition an unfair advantage!
Its ok, I still have many improvements yet to make
I was thinking of adding wheels and turning it into a car PC. I could tow it around by its power supply and LAN cables.
Ok Gents, if you've done your home work & practice learning some skills , "you can start at anytime", keep a work log but "don't post it up till after the official start time"
I look forward to seeing some kool builds
Mine will be a little boring as I have a very specific purpose. Will be 480mm rad cooling 2 x WC ITX
if you have fun making it & it fits your intended purpose, then its a win
I'll join in on this.
Welcome aboard atmo
make sure to have a read of the 1st post
So the power tool price are not included in the budget is that right? What if I got free material from local lumber yard can I enter?
Hit me up guys if you local and can use some free sheets of plex there's a few different colours in various sizes, just ask!
@ echineon & Everyone
Use,Beg,Borrow or Buy what ever for Tools to use,
Read post 1 (for exceptions/ excusions) eg: No CNC
But All Your Materials are out of your $100, That Means No Free Material Stuff
@ Defyant, Its a well meaning offer, But it defeats the purpose
I hope this helps clarify the above question
Most people over look the basic stuff, ideas/uses for Plex alternatives
Multitude of colours & starting from $1.30
Spend some time browsing the whole shop & keep an open mind, most things are multi purpose with a little imagination
eg: 2 dome lamp shades if I wanted to make a sphere
