New Case Construction

Based on the initial cardboard mock-ups, I started cutting and bending the sheet metal.
The 1U power supply now gets encased in a 6cm high box, with the 6cm fans pushing the air through...

From the back side, the air should flow out un-hindered.

From the top...

In this configuration, the top of the CPU fan aligns with the top of the PSU metal case - so will need to add around an extra 1cm to allow for air flow.

The motherboard is raised about 18mm above the metal base plate, allowing for the DVD player to fit.
