Re: [OT] beefy steel cases

Hmmm, a carpenter could probably do it better with real wood. Not composite but maybe pine or oak.

Me again with my project.

Some people off-list have found me some low-MHz computers and will mail
me the boards with CPU + memory etc.  One is a Tyan dual Pentium

Now I'm looking for a great case in which to mount it (them?).  Starting
with wikipedia on EMR shielding, and surfing fro there, I've learned
that steel is much better for this than aluminum of the same thickness,
and the thicker the better (see skin depth).  Wouldn't you know it: my
Athlon64's case is steel frame with thin aluminum panels.  So, I guess
its case should be changed too.

Asthetics don't matter.

How about this:
get any case you want.
get some guy who welds and make an outer box to put your computer it
with a few hole where needed.
This way you dont need 'a certain form-factor' because anything will fit
create a U shape: left side, bottom, right side
then make the front and back panels with a few holes for cables
and then a top to put on top of the U.
