Gateway to server case transformation

The goal of this project is to create a case that can house my newer supermicro board , two power supplies , and look more along the lines of a rack mounted server. There will be a lot more function rather than style , but I'll try to make it look nice.

Removed plastic

Removed stock front and drive cages

Borrowing power supply mount front hp case

The reconfigured front , with drives relocated , second power supply bracket , and fan locations


Borrowed side vent from hp to use as second power supply vent


Coat of black

that's it so far

Neat. Keep us updated!

Creating front mesh


added case handles

reassembly (and yes , that's an ultra xconnect power supply , the gaudiest of all power supplies)




That's it so far. Yes I will get a 120mm fan for the rear. I do not have an I/O shield plate for the motherboard unfortunately.
