    Wow! Green seated in black. It's not to late to revise my design, right?

    Got the sides together last night.

    Here is a pair of corner pieces with the tabs bent.


    This is how they go together to form the whole corner. An acrylic center piece is added as a spacer and mounting for the legs. You can see one tab is on top, and one on the bottom in order to facilitate securing the top and bottom plates.


    Here's the corner assembly with the side pieces laid out.


    After drilling all the mounting holes in both the side and corner pieces, I can put it all together to see how they fit.


    Inside shot of the corner...


    and outside shot.


    Then I threw the top piece on for a test fit.


    Tonight I will screw the corner assemblies together permanently and drill holes for the shock mounts. I should also be able to cut the bottom plate to fit and drill/tap holes for the motherboard standoffs.

    'til next time!

    Wanted to show you one of the parts I got for the ION. It's a 2.5" hot-swappable HDD adapter that fits into a slim optical drive bay. I found it on Logic Supply's website while ordering a few other parts for the ION.


    Of course, as with any part I get my hands on, I have to find some way to mod it. :twisted: In order for it to fit into the ION chassis, I need to cut off the section of the ODD format that is not used. After disassembling it, I made my marks and began cutting.




    I left a portion of the front edge so I could fold it over and utilize one of the screw holes in the lower section to re-secure that corner.


    After filing down the edges I re-assembled the unit.


    Here's a shot with Corsair's SSD installed as an example.


    Even though I didn't have enough in my budget to purchase a second drive, I think this drive adapter is a great addition to the ION that will allow for future expandability and ease of use. And it will accept either 2.5" notebook hard drives, or SSD's.

    That drive swap is kinda cool. I know you are going to light those green corners.

    When I said I wanted to revise, I meant I forgot you could seat the cut parts together like that. I could have made some OCD parts to drive bill crazy.

    Work continues...

    Mounted the motherboard last night. Using the ITX mounting hole schematic I found, I positioned it onto the bottom plate where the motherboard is going to go and drilled out the holes.


    Tapping the holes:


    With standoffs inserted:


    And motherboard in place.


    Back shot:


    In other news, I got the legs back from the anodizers this morning so I can assemble them tonight! 'Til then..
