Laser cutting the alu top plate locally will cost more than the case itself, and I have access to cutter that will do wood and acrylic, so I settled on wood. Will stain and add magnets for holding the top cover later.
Added a fan over the chipset, it was getting toasty.
At stock clocks and voltages, cpu was reaching 85+ under prime95
Saw this case and loved it, the new Ryzen APU is perfect to go in it.
Mainly for media, hoping to see how some light gaming will flare on this.
A few things I'm still looking to do:
Laser cut vents on top cover (?? looking into this, any recommendation appreciated)
Custom length wires to run along side of case (as invisible as possible with cover on)
2x 50mm fans (depending on temps with cover completed)
replace usb 2.0 header with usb 3
