Shuper' Luu' has yet to learn the way of the Dremel
GoldTouch - Lian Li PC-A60C CU edition

Hi guys

Pararell to our showtables, i will start a project in a case i won on a modding contest 4 months ago. Because of the value it has for me, and not only (€€ ) i will not do nothing tooooo extreme.

Photos of the victim:





GoldTouch: The main ideia is add more gold details, lighting etc etc etc, to the case.


Mods i think to do:
  • Create acrilyc "false roof" and wall (black or gold, i'm searching it);
    If i use WC use gold conector and black tube, if WC use black cooler and paint the fan gold (i'm thinking if i cut or not the roof to a 240mm radiator;
    Acrylic plates for GFs and memorys gold;
    Looking for the interior see just the cuts for hdds, PSU cables etc, on the acrylic;
    Use black and gold sleeve;
    Bottom inside acrylic;
    Things like satas cables, screws use them in the same color (black or gold);
    Play a little with the lightning job, maybe some board lightning job


Worklog:
Hardware 1#
Cooling 1 - Vídeo Teaser


Sponsor:

Thanks to Aquatuning for sponsor me with WC material to this project

Hey

I cant believe that you are going got chop up that lovely limited (never to be seen again!) case

If youre going to gold plate things, then why not use a standard case?

anyway, i will be keeping my eye on this.

I just saw this

Damn, I want this case!

Its a shame that you cant get one of thise stealth drive covers that Lian Li does so well in coper. Maybe get one of thsoe copper plated?

I would go for coper blocks and fittings. Where are you going to fit the radiator? There are no holes for pipes to leave the case. What are you going to do about that?

Yes, that video was for a review i made some months ago, i really love the case, really.

I´ve think in fit the Rad inside (240mm) secured on the 5,25" with a custom aluminum L. But that is if i go to WC. The € have a huge weight on that

Yeah, it's a shame the driver covers are only black, but they fit good as well.


Saturday maybe i've photos of the acrilyc modeled

Hi all!

Up, now that Aquatuning will sponsor this project i can start it hard and perfect

I buy a dremel 300 and a "vertical driller" so now i will be able to do acrylics by hand.

Hi,

No, i will not strip them The rads will be hide, i want a clean interior, will try hide everything i can. The 240mm have "silver sides" (not painted) but i will not paint it black, will stay stock.

Hope till friday night i finish modeling the principal inside parts to add
