Hi

Does anyone have any good links for building a case from scratch?

Tried googling but not a lot came up.

Specifically, it would be good to find a site that details generic component measurements and a guide to how to make the initial case frame and what to make it out of?

Cheers all

There is not to much you will find on building a case I do know there are a few how to's on wooden cases, but besides that most people will buy a case and then just mod it to how they want. If you do a google search for PC case moding you will find plenty of info on that.
