What's a Dremel?

SFraze has yet to learn the way of the Dremel
PART 4

At this stage, I purchased a MSI 6970 GPU and a nickel plexi EK block. I used the same mesh and flat black paint to cover the PCB which hides that unattractive dark brown standard PCB that all the reference cards came out with.

So with the new graphics card installed and all the components been up and running for some time I finally had some time after a big year at uni to add the final touch to the case. The logo was fairly easy. I made a small light panel in the same way used in the main light panel discussed earlier, but with four blue LEDs (2 on each end). The logo itself is a sticker I had made up by a car sticker business at the Brickworks markets in Adelaide. It only cost $20 for a few logos so that was a bonus and took about 5 minutes to make on the spot. The sticker is opaque black with the text cut out, therefore the light glows through the text. This logo unit is mounted to the inside frame of the case and sits behind a small window I made.

So that sums up the work log. I hope there is plenty of handy tips and perhaps new ideas or methods for your next build or current build.

If there are any questions I'll be happy to answer them, just post up a reply in the thread.

I'll now leave you with the final photos I shot of my first build; Aurora. Go easy with the photography, I'm a beginner

If you have any questions about the build, just post them up here on the thread.

Cheers,
