Still trying to decide on an appropriate enclosure. Presently, I'm assuming the prudent choice for me would be something precut since I don't have access to any sort of a shop, and this is my first desktop diy build (aside from two bh kits). If anyone has any recommendations, I'd be grateful. Also, any chance any of you could recommend some decent, affordable hookup wire that I can buy in red, white and black?
Thanks Skeptic! I put quite a bit of work into them. I still need to clean up the flux a bit, but I literally just finished these last night lol. I piled up on the PSU caps, it was probably me that bought out the remaining stock LMAO I have 16 left of the 3300uf PSU caps, and 8x of the 330uf poly caps. For chassis drilling, you can get by with a standard drill and some stepper bits like these;
or a router with a blade made to cut metal, but you would need a large bit to drill a hole big enough to fit in the blade, and of course some filing picks are a necessity.
For wire, you can get some from this place on ebay that has great prices. This is only one option, there are many sizes and lengths to choose from.
Hope that helps, and good luck!
