    I was planning this from very long time but never have time to do it,work bench :) This is the project made with google sketchup

    [​IMG]

    Not many photos of the work , I was in the rush :) Job almost complete

    [​IMG]

    And work place ready for modding :) I also made a shelf and installed better lighting

    [​IMG]

    My missis was very happy,that I'm not going to use the dinner table any more :hehe: Ok,enough talking lets start modding :dremel:

    Case stripped

    [​IMG]

    I can easily fit inside two triple radiators, it makes me very happy :D

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    First I will replace the standard case feet with those with wheels

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    More cutting,drilling and more weight reduced

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    I'm planning to cover the inside with white acrylic and make a lower chamber. First everything from
    cardboard

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    And what the inside will look very roughly :)

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    The HDD cage will be just in front the PSU

    Wow that was very long writing :) That's all for now lads.I will come back soon with more photos,so stay tuned for more :)

    Hi guys,
    I'm showing some photos of the progress from last two days. I've made silver coil with my previous project blue,this time I decide to go further and to do something more than simple coil.So here we go :)

    I will do EK anticyclone plate from fine silver

    [​IMG]

    Usual tools for my projects

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Not really easy to cut,the silver plate is 4 mm thick

    [​IMG]

    But I've done it :D

    [​IMG]

    Final touches with the files

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    And the plate is ready :)

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    That is all for today.Stay tuned for more :)

    It's just reflection form the box in front of the plate :) It's actually silver.

    nice, that is one very cool anti-cyclone plate...

    :worried: but I thought ek's offical standpoint was that silver is a no-no and voids their warranty :nono:

    regardless, it looks awesome, and would love one for my res! :clap:

    don't worry, I know that... just thought it was a bit ironic, that EK dosn't want people to use silver, and then you go and carve an ek logo into a big slab of silver and put it in the middle of the res...
