    I cant wait to see pics with all the hardware installed. The one thing I imagine will be problematic is the wiring... I mean if you can see the entire case there's nowhere to hide them.

    Hello, here is a small update I made the fan cables longer and mounded them also, the radiator is in place, the DVD player haze a sensor button and I spray painted some stuff.
    The cables of the fans hade 2 connectors on them but I only need the 3 pin fan connector because of my fan controller so I cut them of, with the fan controller I got like 6 cables to make the fan cable longer (3pin female 3pin male) so I cut the 3pin female of and soldered the 6 cables together to make a longer 3pin cable. I did this 5 times so I have 5 diverent cables in length. Also I sleeved them with black mesh sleeve.
    Me and a friend of my made the sensor for the DVD player work (mostly the friend of my). But what he did was solder the sensor to the solder points of the original button with an optocoupler in between see picture. Also the power to let the sensor work better comes from the rear of the DVD player because it takes +-5volts and the original button only +-3volts so the sensor was to weak.

    The fan with the 2 connectors still on it:

    here you can see the extra cable that I needed before soldering:
    [​IMG]
    cables together with shrinking hoses mounted:

    and the fan cable are sleeved:

    the case with fans and radiator in it:

    DVD player housing and the side things from my fan controler are in the progress of getting black:

    DVD player is black and the side things as well:

    Nice idea for the sensor. It looks like a great way to freak out a cat.:D I almost wish I had a cat so I could make something to bully him with.

    The aluminum and acrylic is the joy of anyone who moves with casemodding, are materials that are faithful to work well!

    Congratulations!

    Great mod, looking good.

    Do you think you can provide some more info on your DVD-rom eject sensor?

    OMG they even have a block for the back of the block??? They must be like $200AUD+ a block so getting both would be just under $100AUD cheaper than the GTX260. Damn SLI for me would be like paying for 4 cards lol. They look awesome all the same.

    I will ask to that friend of my if he can make a schematic of the dvd player eject sensor.

    Also yes they have a block for the back of the card because on the back of the card are a couple of ram that need to be cooled. Normaly they are cooled by the housing of the card so that is why they make that ugly full cover housings.

    hello, this is a small update of what I am going to do this week. Making the new front pannel for my dvd drive. I modded the old one so that the sensor can do its work :naughty: also.

    the old front panel with a extra hole in it for the sensor and the normal button is missing :D:
    [​IMG]
    Now the sensor can look outside the dvd housing:
    [​IMG]
    The drawing of the new front that i will make from 2mm alu painted black and glued to the old one:
    [​IMG]

    I will drill the little holes for example the extra opening hole by hand.

    see ya next time, Julian
