I'm going to build a PC case from scratch.
I plan to build it out of MDF (wood composite material). I prefer this over acrilic, since a) my priority is not aesthetics, but airflow and silence; and b) it's an easier material to work with.
I have a huge variety of tools, so that will not be an issue.
My plan is to build an unusually large case with an unusual distribution of elements and amazing airflow. The front will have two or three 5 inch bays, for DVD drives and whatnot. The motherboard will be halfway through the case, I/O panel side up, so airflow is vertical and the connections are on the top side. The psu will be under it.
Way in the back will be all the hard drives (6) aligned in two sideways vertical rows.
The underside will have a tunnel with an opening in the front and three size 12 fan openings on the ceiling, two for the motherboard area and one for the hard-drives. This tunnel will act as a massive cold air intake.
I need help aquiring dimensions and size details. Apparently there used to be a site entirelly dedicated to PC format standards and schematics, but it's down.
Also, tips and suggestions are most welcome.

Hey /diy/, two quick questions.
I've just moved to California and I'm trying to make myself a little more self sufficient. I live up North in the foresty part, not the LA/Hollywood part. I've started growing my own herbs (and eventually vegetables, but I'm horrid and growing things) and I just boiled some seawater to make my own sea salt.
Question one: What are some other small things I can pick up similar to these? Ones that don't take much time but I can do myself, to make my own goods or improve my life. I live basically in the Redwood forest and very near the ocean (about three miles) so I have lots of natural resources.
Question two: Where can I get cheap, small glass jars? I'm finding I need them to store things-- such as my herbs or sea salt, but have very very little money. Baby food is only about $0.60 so I've been going with that, but is there an easier/cheaper option I'm not noticing?
