good idea with the case feet. u really should light them up. keep up the good work
Now it's time for some final version 1.0 pix
The result of some hours of modding:
And since you can't see that much on the first pic, i made one with flashlight on (the bright stripes on the side are just some light reflexions from the flash...)
can we got some light here? Sure
Just another pic with flash
And fo sure we got the same one without
Nice look from above
Guess what? Yes, same one with flash and this one looks really good ^^
Here's my casebadge showcase ^^ behind the holes i installed the power and HDD activety led, but you just can see them when the frontlight is turned off.
push me *gg*
and now some nightpix
oh, look it's an aqua computer cuplex on an athlon64
And now let's see how it looks on the desk
The hardware i installed:
Athlon 64 3200+ @ 4100+ (S939, Winchester)
MSI K8N Neo2 Platinum (Bios V1.36 Mod by Bitpower)
512MB DDR 400 CL2.5 TwinMOS @ 212MHZ
MSI NX6800GT-TD256 @ 400/1150MHZ (can do more, but i won't overdo it )
200GB Maxtor S-ATA
Yamaha CRW F1E
Toshiba 4x DVD-R/RW
I don't let the components run overclocked all time, since they are fast enough at normal speed and since they produce less heat on normal speed *gg*
CPU runs passive @ 3200+ i just turn the fans on when i'm overclocking
I got the newst revision of the MSI card with full copper cooler and fan controler, which i set to minimum, so you don't hear the fan and it runs fine
The chipset cooler of the MSI mobo is slowed down by speedfan, you don't hear it too.
The only thing you can hear is my psu... i need to buy a really silent one ^^
And yes, i know the drives are still white, and they stay white... i hate painting drives...
And now, please gimme some reply
Sorry to say this dude, but the MSI casebadge on the front of your case isn't straight Doesnt matter though, because this is one sweet case!!
Really nice design.
Nice and simple. /me likes
looks great! i like the black and green circles! (although i don't agree with u not painting the drives black)
a nice overclock on the cpu as well
p.s. what tft have you got? almost looks a samsung but not sure.
Nice window design
Just paint the drives and that case pc looks awesome.
me thinks green looks good
Yes, It's a Samsung SyncMaster 710T or 701t... i dunno exactly...
I already said to SMOVE that he should paint the drives or better put some UV green plexiglass in front of it...
Thanks for the comments
I'll see what i can do with the drives... but i won't paint them, maybe i'll just buy a black CRWF1 and a black Toshiba DVD rom at ebay and change the cover of the drives
It's a Samsung Syncmaster 701T (17") and it really rocks, no pixel failures, DVI-D input, 100% usable for games
Why not just paint them it isnt that hard. I mean hey it is your choice but why spend all that extra money to buy new drives and strip them. Just my thoughts
I know it's not that hrad to paint the covers, i just don't like painted covers *gg*
So much hardwork & the drives stay white? ?
By some drive covers and stealth them...or buy those nice Lian Li stealth srives with the little flip down door.
Nice work though, I havea similar idea with the res on the top of my system.
Update on watercooling:
I got a Innovatek Cool-Matic NV40 for testing and i think it looks really cool:
CPU 54°C (full load, no fans, clock: 2300MHZ)
GPU 54°C (full load, no fans, clock: normal)
And for sure overclocking the GPU is a lot better with the new cooling
CPU @ 2,5GHZ, 6800GT: 410/1150
5556 points @ 3d mark 2005
I think you should paint or stealth those cd-covers they are looking like they don't belong there
Looks pretty good, but I'd seriously lose the cable ties and sleeve those cables. Cable ties look good only when used where you can't see them... IMHO
