@Mosquito, no prb, I don't drink as much as my videos suggest... and Stu is great artist! and to answer yr question, it's two different fans. they will be mounted side by side in the chassis.

@dmcgrath, Thank you and I love catching your work, it's awesome!

@Waynio, Visual Overkill ...lol

@theoeyeo, Thank you, actually pondered getting another set for my car..lol

@Nutman, thats a good sign that I'm on the right path

@Dragulax99, Thank you for dropping in!

@Twizted, Indeed you are the best electronics guru I've known for past 12 yrs

@NetSphere, you hit the nail on what motivates me.. I scare a lot of manufacturers away from working with me, because the product is no longer recognizable. ...while Fractal-Design and handful of other case companies like the idea of their cases being treated as a blank canvas.

@Ron, Thank you! lookin forward to seeing coverage of your IRON MAN PC this week at Computex!

@Halchart, Thank for the post!

@MrWizard, Thank you, will post when I can

Deadline for the finished PC got bumped to the 15th. Photo session had to be bumped... So it puts the pressure on me a bit.... I made an early start Yesterday morning, devised a dual exhaust pipe for the back of the chassis, will get photos up this week.... then met with Brad in afternoon, he was in middle of wetsanding case hes painting for Scirocco's upcoming project! then we concocted a custom paint mix for the entire Dirt Showdown PC. We've named it "Dirt Showdown Orange" It's a combination "House of Kolor" Kandy Orange with touch of Red over "House of Kolor" "Shimrin Metajuls" Gold Basecoat. By 8pm last night, everything was painted... Next stage is the graphics

Chassis looks so nice & zingy, I can't believe the deadlines pro modders live up to though while still doing an amazing job of it, just incredible.

I'd still be up for it;
I'm not quite sure I asked the right question, I meant for each of the pair it looks like there's the fan grill, and then a smoked clear plastic fan, then the aluminum framed fan... Is that two fans attached to each grill (4 fans total) or are there shrouds or something? I'm just curious


Also, I love that paint!

Dang, Bill ... you had me with that first stack, it was so original! Then I saw Twizted working on your HDD Tach, and I knew something amazing was coming. Hail to the old PR Guard!

@Angel OD, check out the "Shimrim Metajuls" if House of Kolor supplier is near you... the sparkles dance under light..

@Waynio, puts a bit of pressure on, but luckily Mrs understands, so I can work later

@Mosquito, yep, two fans stacked.. the rear fan is enermax vegas duo, the lighting effect is really cool behind the turbine...will post photos when I get them installed.

@alain-s, even better in person, will try to get better photos posted. Thanks for post!

@Shurika, me too! "Shimrim Metajuls" has array of kandy kolor options.. will def be using it more often

@godling, soo good to hear from you! and Vern has figured out how to make the Tech for CPU load instead

@bulldogjeff, had to have some Kandy paint... hehe

@Vetalar, Thank you for watching & posting

@Balder, yes, and you just don't see Kandy Orange paint used enuf these days

I couldn't help myself, just file these in folder labeled "Doesn't serve purpose, but looks tits"



Drawing inspiration from K&N race series street rod manifold pipes... except these will be mounted like bent "stacks" that will peek out from the rear of chassis..



I've modified pipe from bathroom sink trap I found in Plumbing section at Home depot...











made manifold mount from Blue transparent acrylic, I was lucky to get handful of these red anodized 6/32 machine screws from Twizted old online store, Dragonmodz.. which is now closed.., but You can get anodized machine screws from Parts-Express, http://www.fastener-express.com/

That is freakin' awesome, bro! I love the tinsnips' serrated teeth-marks on the couplers before you sanded them clean. Like a surgeon!

That was exactly what I thought when I saw them too, but being sink drain pipe, are they actually chromed? (That is what causes it, right, the chrome plate?)

@E.E.L., right on! add belt sander to your man cave purchase list!

@Meelobee, you betcha! part of the fun is finding ideas in aisles at Home depot.

@Cheapskate, ahh, always good advice!

@Mosquito, yes, chrome plated... got it from Plumbing section at Home depot.

@Waynio, will be final piece

@Asouter, Thank you for post! I had to ask for extension this morning. I learned last night delivery of some parts are on back order.

@Mankz, congrats on your new position with bit-tech staff!

@Halchart, Thank you! Back to the 50s is June 22, 23, 24! video of 2011 event


As I noted, I just discovered some parts are on back order, so I'm having to ask for deadline extension and wait on finishing some stages.



Yesterday I installed our polished Machined aluminum "Diamond Knurl" pc case feet which are made in HAAS cnc lathe.




The base diameter is 1- 3/4" with height of 1" to elevate the case for improved airflow beneath it.







For internal lighting, I've chosen installed Orange signal lights.



I added one of the factory cable grommet to the top, for all of the wires from Toggle Switch and CPU Load Tachometer. You can swivel and aim these Signal lights in whatever direction you like...



The signals I found are universal fit for Honda, Yamaha, Suzuki, Kawasaki, or Quad ATV. Here is the Reseller link on Ebay
