    Its been a while since my last update. I have very busy and waiting for parts is slowing me down a bit (but doing a little overclocking in the meantime :D).

    I have to give a big thank you to Fedtech for cutting the side window and fan holes. Here some shots of it in the water jet. Ill get more pictures up on Monday when I get my camera back.

    How about black pinstripe? Quick and dirty photochop.

    Aluminum FRENZY! I finally got a chance to take some pictures of the progress. Since the last update I picked up a 1" x 6" x 24" chunk of aluminum that will become the spacers for the Lian-Li casters as well as the top fan cover. I found this extruded aluminum box to use as the control box.

    I also mocked up two 22mm vandal switches with a spare piece of acrylic until I get the control box done. I had them sleeved in red as the fans were all sleeved in white to see which I like better. I think i like the white better. The red looks better in the pictures than it does in real life.

    I also got the TRUE 120 Black mocked up with the MNPCTECH mesh and it looks sick! I can't wait to see it in white :rock:.

    I mocked up the side panel to get an idea of what it will end up looking like and I am very happy so far. It is no wider than the standard A380 but with the duct on the top as well as the bottom it makes it look HUGE! :D

    Looking good.
    Think white/black looks really nice actually. Love those curves.

    Very nice work you have done. I like the clean and simple aesthetics of the outside - it's eye-catching and minimalistic at the same time.

    First of all, I apologize for the lack of progress lately. Work has kept me plenty busy as well as my girlfriend coming home for spring break and our 4 year anniversary. I have made some progress in small amounts but nothing photo worthy.


    I need some modding help. I am trying to work out how to control a group of 3 fans using 1x3pin connector. I want to arrange the fan groups (3x bottom, 3x top, 2x CPU and 1 rear) I have found 3pin Y adapters for 2x fans but not three. Is it possible (without damaging anything) to use two Y adapters to control 3 fans? Or is there a better way? I found the AeroCool V12XT Touch fan controller and I think it matches the theme of the case, but it only has 4x 3-pin connectors.

    Any help/advise would be greatly appreciated.
    Thanks!

    BTW: I hope to get some CNC done this week, I will be heading to StompFest LAN the 10th-11th. Will be my first LAN an I would like to have a presentable case by then. (won't be 100% finished but something that looks respectable.)

    Some seriously awesome work and equally awesome renders. I dunno if you said before but are you using Kerkythea?

    I am a big fan of the red and white colour combo but the candy red with the flat black looks good also.

    I can't wait to see more of this :thumb:.
