    Update #29 - 18/06/2011

    Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No it's just me :D

    Q&A Time!

    Q: Where the hell have you been??!!
    A: Exploring the universe with my towe- wait that's a book. I've just been really really busy getting sorted at university and getting used to things. Not much of an excuse really (especially to leave it this long) but it will have to do!

    Q: So you are actually going to finish now?
    A: Yes! But it won't be finished as I want it. I need to get it finished for this coming Friday. I most likely won't have the case lighting done by then and some cable management might not be 100% complete. However towards the end of summer I will probably break it down and finish off the bits i missed.

    Q: You promised you would finish it at Christmas, and Easter! You are totally lying
    A: This time, unless something actually goes horrifically wrong, I have to get it finished by friday :)


    And on to some pictures! This is just a basic summary of where I am currently at with the project:

    My workbench at uni is the top of my chest of draws :p

    Update #30 - 23/06/2011

    Finished! Sort of...

    There are a few things not right yet:
    - No fans on the top rad (they were too tall against the motherboard)
    - LEDs are not wired up in the drive bays (I destroyed half them somehow)
    - Crossfire bridge is still brown and fugly
    - My front panel custom usb cable doesn't work :( (i may have plugged it in upside down...)
    - The lights on the switches for the rad fan lights are inverted
    - I glued the CD slot cover on wonky (derp)
    - Need more support for the bay cover at the bottom

    So these aren't final photos. Mainly because it isn't completely finished, but also because I'm at uni with no tripod and no studio or anything to take decent photos. Either way, enjoy!

    I love it. It's like a Storm Trooper Zygote! Soon it'll grow up to be a battle clone ready to put down the rebellion.

    Cheers :D

    Rofl I never looked at it like that before

    Thanks :)

    :clap:

    That is what I was aiming for all along. Bling is overrated in my opinion.

    Cheers!

    It's actually nickel - the brown/gold is coming from the reflections :p Thanks!

    It humbles me to think my project has got someone else into modding! Keep going brother!
