Custom MiniITX case

Category : MiniITX · by Aug 6th, 2008

I’ve been on the lookout for a server case for the MiniITX motherboard a few months but nothing of a suitable size came up, we happened to visit Ikea to pick up some stuff for the living room and I found a box that would do as a case!

I’ve not taken any pictures of the build as it’s just me drilling and sawing but it’s all finished and so here are the pics of the finished item…

If it performs as good as it looks you might eventually be able to give up the day job, but not just yet!!

Looks good, very neat. You might want to think about RF shielding though – maybe line the interior with kitchen foil? Unshielded PCs can play havoc with things like TV/Radio reception.

That’s a good idea but i’d have to do something more complicated with mounting the motherboard and hard drive as they’re just on the wood, no screws or anything 😉

Pretty tidy Dan. I’ve been thinking about what to put my file server in but I’m thinking I might make a case out of aluminium if I can get some on the cheap.
