Dual System PC Case

Ice44

2 months ago

Wondering how I would go about either building or buying a dual system case. Preferably as cheap as possible. Just an idea I have and was thinking about doing it diy and than doing dual system hardline cooling. All suggestions and ideas are welcome.

EDIT 1:

My main MOBO is ATX, the other mobo i want to use it mATX. But the second mobo can be changed. So lets go with ATX and ITX.

EDIT 2:

Was looking at the Cougar Gemini X. Something like that would be pretty cool to either DIY or buy something similar. Thoughts?

The Phanteks Enthoo Mini XL is the perfect case for this.

Issue with this is that my mobo is ATX, and the other mobo is mATX. Kinda a big issue that I forgot to specify.

If you're not willing to use an ITX motherboard, your options are severely limited. Your options are as follows:

Phobya WaCoolT Cube 1

Thermaltake Core W200

Just use two separate systems.

ITX can be used. I am starting to lean more towards the DIY side. Mainly for the challenge, and customization. What materials would I use to build it and what resources would I need. Should I design it in CAD software?

Always start with CAD. After you get an idea for what you want, find a case that already conforms mostly to what you need. Then, measure and rebuild it in CAD for fitting. As for materials, you're probably looking for 0.6-0.8 mm SECC steel or 2-3 mm aluminum.

What software would you recommend?

Since you can use ITX, the Eclipse P600S and Evolv X both support an optional bracket for an additional motherboard of the ITX form factor.

It would be fun to get that shipped to my house.

That sounds like it would be fun to build, don't get me wrong, but the size of it, Jesus.
