    Ok, I am sorry folks, but I am absolutely sick of trying to get SketchUp and Vray to play nice. These are the last 2 renders. From now on I am sticking to Solidworks and Maxwell.

    In case you are wondering the HDRI worked fairly well, but everything I tried, the actual HDR never showed in the background. Oh well.

    These are comparison shots next to a TJ07.

    The first pic shows my design with the itx motherboard tray, there are 12 itx mainboards, and 2 800w 24vdc PSU's supplying the pico-PSU's for each board, 2x8port 1gb Ethernet switches are packed in the middle as well. Each mainboard has a Koolance waterblock mounted, and there are 4 CPU's on each cooling loop. There are 2x300ml reservoirs on this side. Below the mainboard tray you can see 2 of my configurable drive bays housing 20 SSD's and a pair of fan controls in between mounted using my 3way adjustable brackets.

    The second pic shows the 3 Phobya 560 radiators (4x140) and the reservoir for the 3rd loop. Behind them are 3 dual ddc setups.

    There are a few other pics in my photo book, but I won't be adding anything in the next week or two while I build mainboards/pumps/psu/etc in solidworks.

    Very nice renders and the case looks huge!

    Another play with render settings:p Nah, I took part in a speedmodel competition.

    Thanks tangster, yes the case is -large-, sorry about the venting - I just got fed up with SU/Vray.

    The skull is awesome, what is that media? polymer?

    No idea, I made a texture and tweaked it until it looked cool. Originally it was a ceramic material.

    Cinema 4D polymodelling+hypernurbs (turbosmooth in MAX) I haven't gotten used to ZBrush yet, I might buy a tablet,since sculpting with a mouse doesn't feel right.

    The challenge was 2hours for modelling and 15 mins for renders. I took 1hr 30 for the model and 30mins to setup the render and 15 mins to get a decent result with tweaking.

    I'm entirely self taught after getting my first copy of Cinema 4D from a member of my old 6th form's IT dept 2years ago. I did sign up to C4Dcafe though and I'm a semi-active member on the CGtalk Cinema4D forum. The only tutorial I would say is needed is 3DKiwi's Bodypaint DVD if you want to get into custom non-procedural textures.
    Good luck:thumb:

    EDIT: I have some tutorials/resources in my Deviantart
