Cheers guys! Glad you joined in

A small update today, I did a small "incision" - as I mentioned before top optical drive had to go, so I took my trusty cordless drill and get rid of that cage.

Here are those switches that are mounted to the cage. I had to drill those rivets to separate switches from the cage.



...and here is the cage




...unwanted element partialy separated... You can see the shadow of "the instrument" I used




...and patient after procedure, fully recovered

Now, I would like to present my first sponsor of this new project.

MAYHEMS kindly supported me with their products.

I received all their fantastic stuff:




2 bottles of their blue UV X1 coolant




2 bottles of UV Blue and UV Clear Dyes




...and this big guy - Mayhems MHE240 LE Quad pass double radiator






Again, thank you MAYHEMS!!!

Before I drilled out the drive cage I tried out this big fella inside the case.
Look how big it is!




All these will be cooling my hardware inside Aurora. I can't wait to pour in this coolant to the loop, but before this, there is a LOT of work in front of me

So stay tuned fellow modders

Guys, today I would like to present my second sponsor - COOLER MASTER!

Last weekend I received a nice big box with these items inside:




Cooler Master Silent Pro M2 850W modular PSU







and CM Storm QuickFire Rapid Mechanical Keyboard!




I'm going to stick in this big PSU in the case and take advantage of its modular cables to mod them in project color scheme.

And this keyboard will nicely add a professional touch to the whole mod.
I started to plan how can I mod this keyboard.......


Thank you again Cooler Master!

Cheers guys for all your comments!

I'm gathering all items and in the meanwhile designing panels in Sketchup.
Of course I won't keep the original front look - it will be covered with some nice blue acrylic design. I will show them up here when I feel comfortable with the design, right now I have 3 different looks and trying to put them all together It's just like, when you designing some element, you generate all different ideas, but you need to pick one for exact project. That is hard!

Thanks guys - now everybody is watching my log, hoping to see something cool - no pressure at all!

I'm working on first sketches, I will show them this weekend.
Also I'm waiting for few acrylic and aluminum bits to start building internal elements.

Question to all of you - I planned to use bare wires for cabling - white only.
Do you guys think I should sleeve them or keep it bare naked? I could mix white and blue wires - could be nice... What do you think?

Sorry, I meant not-sleeved wires. I know they always have spec printed on them, which is cool I may try to get rid of that later
