Woah! Those over-sized grills look amazing Bill!
Yes, I've been thinkin about ideas to top and side panels in proportion with massive front end
You young people and your obsessions crack me up!
LOL, this will be pretty tame compared to most of gigers art.
I'll say it now instead of waiting....that's just cool. Period.
Keep going(and show more pictures)!
Thus far, very true. Massive fan of him as well. The man made a full-size sculpture of the alien using modelling clay, animal bones, meat, metal and anything he could get his hands on!
Satan II and Landscape 13 (I think) are 2 of my favs.
Otherwise, this is looking really really nice. Those fan shrouds look the mutts dangly bits!
Thanks guys! So, Ive got 2 chieftec dragon carcuses, but both are missing the 5.25 plastic drive rail brackets. I planned to rig up the optical in the top to slide out from within scuplted top panel. I'll have to keep hunting or devise another bracket system.
This is my fav pic so far...
+1 for Ziips description and those magnificent fan bodies. Just a tad to expensive but
very sweet just the same.
lol, the dangly image was actually on a t-shirt I bought, while in the UK 8 yr ago.. It was from a VW Tuning Shop, Dubsport.
Still searching for the quick release drive brackets.. thinkin I'm gonna have to fab something instead..
Whoo raaa.......damn them be some fine looking case fans ya got there boy! no seriously friggin awsome, your facebook makes sense now, was wondering why u were waiting for the skull! and it a massive case, should be havin some fun with this project
An idea for the side panels.
What about three tubes cutted in diagonal like fake air intakes?
Something simmilar to the front pieces.
Wow, now I can't wait to get my CNC mill built, so that I can mill my own fan bodies, LOLZ!!! But seriously, those are freekin AWESOME
God I hope so, we don't need to see any giant penises hanging out on this thing. Seriously, look at Giger's original alien sketches, their heads are freaking giant penises..... Looks awesome so far by the way.
Crazy mod.Very nice.
I wish I had half the skill that Bill does. Damn.... Every mod is stellar...
man, I just say the same thing as SkyLord77, I wish I was half as good as Bill :d
Thanks for the great comments guys!
I know exactly what I wanna do with the top and side panels. The only thing that will recognizable as the Khaos will be the vent in the side panels. Well, maybe not even that...lol
Today I fixed up some brackets for the optical drive. I cannibalized these from the base of an old 5.25 bay. Cut and bent them appropriately so they hold work with the "slide" style drive bay brackets screwed onto the drive. I couldn't find the Chieftec Dragon version I thought I had, but did find some from an old Compucase (similar design). The new top panel I'll be making will encase the drive, so it was important that I can slide the optical drive in/out without having to access fastener screws. I thought I'd need to plant a pilot screw in front of the notch in spring portion of the bracket (to keep it from sliding out) but it's snug enough to stay in place on it's own.
Excellent reuse of case parts. Maybe that's why we never throw anything away. "Someday I might need...."
Amazing mod Bill.. Fantastic front.. congratulations
+rep on the recycle and some stars from me.
