It's really good to see you doing EEL-stuff again, though.
Hahahaha, yeah probably not that far off!
Thanks, bro -- it's nice being back to this kind of stuff again too. It's been too long.

Yes, sir! Gotta kill this project off once and for all, bro!
Hahaha, I don't think they're that old now, are they? *looks at date* Oh. Yeah. You're right.

10th Mar., 2017 - Update

Update time!

I gotta keep plugging away, even if it's minor stuff. Let's get to it!

Continuing with the makeover on the acrylic, I've also made some new hub stickers to fall further down the MST3K hole (does that sound dirty? I think it sounds dirty... what the hell is wrong with me?!).



Here they are! Vinyl, and ready for stickering action!



With the top fan removed, I can get to the hub...



....and re-stickered!



Gotta put the grill, etc. back on it, so I can reinstall where it will reside. The bottom side of the fan isn't going to matter at all really as you won't be able to see it from the bottom anyway, but I'll know it's there so I have to do it! It's kind of like smearing feces on the wall, letting it dry, and then painting over the top of it with some decent eggshell latex paint. ...actually, it's nothing like that. Sorry I said anything. ...What the hell is wrong with me?



Ahem. Ready for install.



...And done, with new refreshed frame.



Let's do the same for the rear exhaust as well!



...And done!





I have lots of stuff planned for this project; I just have to make the dreams a reality. Just need time to concentrate, and execute! Runnin' out of time, and I'm feeling it already, haha. Gotta do it! I'll be back for more as soon as I can.

Panting over poo: Actually, it can bleed right through or even shed the paint depending on what the pooper ate. Roach poop is like a tiny speck of black ink that leaves a dark skid when you roll over it.

I love this. It's very DFI. Shame you don't have a Lanparty in there really, but the board you have should suffice

Worst part is, I know you're being serious.

Ah yes, the old DFIs were awesome. Last one I owned was a Skt 939, used in "Building Better Worlds" a few years back. Lovely boards, the DFIs!

March 23rd Update!

Update time! Let's get to it.

I've been hammering away at this project, and admittedly it's getting away from me. Mostly because I'm bursting with ideas and I'm running out of time, quickly, for me to be able to form these ideas into actual physical creations. I'm trying, though. If I don't get this done in time, which is highly possible, I'm going to push until it is completed. I have to. It's a moral imperative.



CPU socket area with CPU. Time to get it prepped for the air-cooler to be attached.



Spackled some TIM on it...



...And completed. But that's not all. I'm going to customize the cooler so it fits the feel of things a bit!



Some design-work completed as well as some paint work later, and there we have it. Finishing up on assembly!



Done. Moving on!



Forgot to add the Gizmonic sticker to the other side of the rear fan, haha. It's done now!

Now, the next thing I wanted to do to this project was tie it together even more in the MST3K lore.



What better way to do that then having ole' Gypsy looking things over inside?



Let's get to it!



After a few minutes of screwing around with this admittedly scarce limited-edition 'figurine', I finally got her 'eye' removed.



Now I can hack away at the solid body... I need it all removed n' stuff.



Now, I need to make some room on the back side of her head so I can get at the internals.



Drill, drill, drill!



That's probably about as good as it will get. Moving on.



Non-split loom to recreate her body! Only thing is... she seems a little... I dunno... flaccid.



Let's drill out the 'eye' here... I gots an idea.

Oh yeah, almost forgot... due to technology moving on, sometimes mods will have to be revisited and be re-modded to make it able to work with newer technology. This is one of those times. :|

Because of the backplate mount for the CPU cooler, I've had to go in and do some surgery on the already-completed chassis to make some room for it.

Sigh. Marked off.



Ready to cut the crap.



Drilled to start the holes.







Done. Now for some cuts.





Rotary tool action, as I don't feel like messing with the jigsaw tonight.



Close enough; it'll be hidden anyway by the mobo, so it doesn't have to be perfect.



Cleaned up with sanding drum.



And some channel-edge to finish it off. Good enough! Back to more fun stuff!



The mobo's cooling fans integrated into the sinks are a little plain, so made them a Gizmonic product too!



Trying out a different HDD rack that I'll probably end up going with. It looks nice and subtle, and it's short enough.



Moving on, I acquired a bag of 10mm LEDs. Basically, I just needed one, but the price for a few more was basically the same, so why not, ya know?





LED will be a tight fit, but it's about tailor-made, with some additional work.



I took a sanding block to one to shave down the domed end so it's nice and flat. I think it'll work just fine!



After my careful drill-out work on the eye, it should fit like a glove.



Some careful surgery, here...



Bingo! Like a glove.



Let's do a quick test.



And she lights!



...But, she's still..... limp.



Let's make her a little more turgid!



Pushing it in, one centimeter at a time....



After about 9 hours or something (or at least it felt like it), I have about 2 miles-worth (or at least it felt like it) of tubing ready to go. Along with some wiring in it too.



...And buttoning her head back up.



She's alive!

LOL, it never left...I'm just more subtle with it with little ears near by...
Yeah, close... it's actually just garden-tie stuff to wrap around plants to hold in place, etc. Versatile stuff!
