    :waah:hi @ all

    beside our running triangle project we are currently building a sff case in bioshock style.
    We really loved that game so we decided that we want to build a small case with a lot copper and wood.
    The integrated system will get a custom watercooling solution.


    We started the building process a couple of days ago so here it is what we got so far....

    First we made the bottom and the backside of the case out of some wood...

    then we bend a sheet of copper around those parts ..
    .

    after that we saw out the side panels out of some wood....

    then we attached some copper loops under the bended cooper sheet so that the whole case can be used as an 2 radiator
    for the watercooling loop

    After that we build the reservoir for the watercooling loop.... we wanted that it looks like a vita chamber from the game

    here is the original

    [​IMG]

    and this is our reservoir

    and last but not least the thermometer.....

    and the side panel with the Drive Bay for the optical drive

    like you see there is still a lot of work to do.....:D

    Looking great so far I think! I have been playing the game for about a week, just slowly progressing & looking at everything in it. Looks like your case will definatly have the same look & feel. Great start, will be watching this one.

    thanks a lot for your comments!! i love comments!

    @froop mal schauen...:)

    in the last 2 days we have done several smaller details like that...

    beside that we got 4 identically cpu coolers (old socket) which we now use as feets for the case.

    Then we put the second side panel in its place to see if it fits. We also attached some industrial fan grill to the 2 openings in the sidepanel which will be used to bring some fresh air to the gpu.....

    thanks a lot guys!!!

    @perkins teh modder i buyed those vents in a local hardware store where i buy the most my stuff, but i think every big hardware store will have something like this....they are normally used for inhouse ventilation.
