Thanks! ...I literally just started installing the guts, man. This isn't a finished project yet. Obviously you're not familiar with my previous projects!
Holiday got in the way of the Post Office.

I seem to remember a certain HDD rack that got no love because 'it's all closed up and nobody can see it'

I have proof that you can sleeve and do PSU wiring just fine. Now to find the space for it. Doesn't look like a lot of hidden corners and hidey spaces.

I'm starting to see why you chose the colors. You are getting lighting effects very similar to the show.

Nov. 28th Update

Alrighty, here's another little infusion to the project log. Let's get to it so I can get home and relax a bit.

The subject that's in the spotlight tonight, kids, is the side panel acrylic. Again? Yes, again. Only this time it's for some more eye candy and keeping things in-tune with the theme.

Here's the side panel window's acrylic...



Now, I need to put the MST3K 'spaghetti ball' logo on it...



Good try, but it's just not going to cut the mustard. Let's think some more, here...

A-ha! Got an idea. Let's screenprint it on there!

After a few mins. spent creating some quick separations, I get my screens prepped and ready for exposure on my metal-halide exposure unit. I've heard of job-convergence, but this is ridiculous. It's now rolling over into my modding!



Actually, to be completely honest, this isn't the first time I've done this. I can recall two projects in the past 6 years or so where I did something like this. One of them was a Chieftec Dragon side panel that I printed an alien drone on it with a background of transparent UV blue. Came out cool for the time. More recently than that I did quick little subtle Gir-window mod for a chick (Invader Zim).

Anyways, back to the matter at hand. After a quick exposure, I get the screens blasted out and ready to go...



While those screens are drying, I made a quick trip down to Michael's Art Supply to have a look around. I don't really know what I was hoping to find, but I figured I'd know it when I find it.

I was looking for some fluorescent paint of some sort. UV paint. Neon. Phosphorescent, glow-in-the-dark, etc. Whatever euphemism you want to plug in for it. I needed something that wouldn't be too runny, yet thin enough to pass through silkscreens. So I came across these...



And at $1.19 each bottle, it's worth a gamble.

So I got the panel situated where I needed it and started registering my screens onto the panel where I want it to go.



After about two secs. or so (I've done it once or twice before...lol) I'm ready to rock-n-roll.



Dropped some vinyl ink into the screen for the black...



Flooding...



And done. Now I just need to wait a half-hour or so for the ink to cure, which will give me time to clean this devil of an ink-type out of my bloody screen. I HATE vinyl ink, lol. Give me plastisol any day!



Orange screen set up now...



Printed. Now, the yellow screen...



Set up. Now some "ink", or paint more accurately...



After a few passes of each, I'm confident it's good to go!



Now, let's check my work. I peeled off the other side of the protective film from the panel. Looks good. But then again, I knew it would be fine.

Now, let's check the capabilities of this cheapy paint! Some UV cold cathodes laying near it and flip the lights out...



Yay! Looks awesome. This is going to be cool!



So there ya go! The first screen-print work in a case mod project log. I just can't get away from my job, can I?

I should have some more when I get it done. Which is kind of obvious, isn't it?

Hee hee. Actually, I'd call the sleevejob on NOTalis a bit shoddy, but we really didn't have a lot of time or supplies to do it perfect. Wish we did!

I wanted to try for that but didn't know if it would work. I'm glad you noticed it! I always loved the later episodes that were 'darker' in lighting for some reason.

Dec. 3rd Quick Update

A small update. I've been neck-deep in work because we're swamped, but it was expected. I haven't been able to get much of anything done, but I did work on it bit.

Let's get to it.

First off, I began laying out the acrylic work to double-check on my measurements...



It's about where I suspected it'd be. A closeup of the "Movie Sign!" sign...



This is going to look great.

Now, although this wasn't 'sponsored' by Crucial, it was part of winnings some of us from a recent Cooler Master mod contest nabbed. Thanks goes to Crucial and (indirectly, CM) regardless though. Nice kit that shall have a nice home on this board. And it's the CL4 kit too. Thankfully it was a 4GB kit. They didn't tell us that. Glad it wasn't the Tracers too...



And....finally, announcing another kind sponsor in the form of a man. A legend, really. Eternal thanks goes to Jhanlon303 for donating his unused Asus 9600GT! He asked me repeatedly if my brother could use it, so I finally relented. He threatened me with a drive-by tomatoing so I gave in.

Such beautiful understated packaging. Not used to that with GPUs in my experience. But then again, I don't pay much to the box; just what's inside it.



Beautiful card. I like the cooler on it. Normally, that's the first to go, but I think I'll leave it. Unless it's too loud, of course.



And a black PCB always warms my heart!


-------------
Thank you to:
...and Jhanlon303 (with the Blessing of the Bit-Tech Overlords!)
-------------
Thanks for watchin'!

So it did get there intact. Sweet. Cool looking board, I never looked at it.
It is the one I won for MOTM last year from Bit-Tech. The powers that be said I could donate this.

Can you guys imagine a GPU that needs a 400W PSU on a mini-ITX (that's what I build) that draws 90W max with 2.5" HDD?

About as practical as breasts on a bulldozer.

This should be cool. I like the new acrylic pieces.

john

I'll have to get one of those sig banner thingys now.

/ninja edit:

I found out today where the name ASUS comes from. You guys know?
