Project : Sors salutis -by AnG3L(15 April 2011 - Video is UP)

Scratch build : Project : Sors Salutis


Intro:
Hello there my friends again, I am back for our fourth journey through the magic world of modding!
I named this project inspired by Carl's Orff famous song Carmina Burana.
Sors Salutis means fade is against me.

The project will be as you already realised a scratch build mainly composed by acrylic and wood.
The colours will be white, black (wood) and red.
2 different compartments will host:
no 1 - motherboard, psu, hdd, dvd-rom, reservoir and
no 2 - radiators, pump
These 2 compartments will be removable for easier transfer.

After countless hand drawings and different concepts I came up with this final design
which you will see unfolding through my updates day after day as I will work as fast as I can
to finish this project as soon as possible.
I tried to stay out of the normal "box" style case and hopefully you will all like it at the end!

Enough with this little intro, let the journey begin!!!

So to give you a clue how the build will look like here is the front (many things will be added though etc)



And here is the back side:



These are some of the acrylic main pieces I am going to use:



More of them! The clear acrylic will be used for illuminating by red leds.



So lets begin with the modding! I will use different kind of wood as you will see.
For the clear acrylic covers I am going to use a 3 mm marine plywood.
Here I draw the covers on the wood to be cut later on.



For my previous experience this particular piece of wood cannot be cut with a jigsaw as its very thin and it chips off very easily
but I am going to use it to make the big cuts and then find a way to do the details.



First I used this blade which it was a fails so I changed it with a blade I use for metal.



First piece removed!



Second phase!



The only way for me to cut the wood with damaging it, it was the dremmel! Time wasting process and a lot of burning wood smell lol !!



By using a bit for carving wood I did the round parts which I first drilled.



Then it was time for the sanding drum to come in action.



For the final touch I attached the acrylic part with the wood to file it and make them fit together perfectly.

Here are the (almost) final shots for the covers.





















So thats all for now guys, I will try to work as fast and give you updates as soon as I can. For the moment it rains so I will stay inside
but soon as the weather is shiny again I will be back!
Thanks for reading guys and wish me good luck for this 4th journey!! Peace!

I forgot to mention the hardware! :P
So in this mod I am going to use the components I used with Case Mod Project : AnG3L.
Evga X58 F T W motherboard
Intel Core i7 920 @ 4Ghz
Corsair 6gbs ram @ 1866 Mhz
Asus GTX 295
all watercooled

hdd and dvd will follow soon as I might do some hardware changes too.

You are a profilic Modder, if only I had the time to mod as much as you! Between college and work, I just have no time, though, maybe this spring I will build something. Anyways, the build looks to be awesome!

Oh no you didn't. Just when I got rid of that nasty addiction, you release another build!

Glad to see you start another one though . I can't wait to see how it turns out.

Smokin' aint a passion bro. Given that I'm usually surrounded by a haze of smoke, I'm the last person to get preachy but I'm sick of hearing about people I love and care about dying from smoking-related causes, so I've decided to get out while I'm ahead.


Anyway, I'm not going to fill this log with lecturing and BS, so mod on and let's have some more jaw-dropping stuff that only you can deliver!
