    Thanks all :happy:.

    In these days I'm busy with some deep pre summer car maintenance, so I didn't try to record another video of the case.

    I discovered that the fans AMD use on the wraith stealth coolers are equal in airflow to the ones already on the GPU, so I bought a couple of sleek looking high static pressure Arctic P12 PWM black with black transparent blades, GPU temps dropped about 5 degrees.

    I have waited for these one to try to record a good video of the case with these on.

    I'll post it as soon as I can.

    I've started working again in the Hotel some days ago, but I wanted to post a couple of short clips of the case with the Arctic P12 fans.
    It's a bit more elegant this way, and I'm now able to control the lighting of the case.

    I made the side view clip because it is possible to see one of the silverstone sleeved cable too.

    I'll add the controller for the fans in the next weeks but right now I can't afford it.

    I apologize about the shaky quality :hehe:, but at least now the colors are closer to how they look in real life.

    I'm going to craft some kind of frame or I'll buy a gimbal so I can up my video recording quality in the future.

    I'm not going to actively start to craft any project in the next few weeks, but if all goes well I'll start again in autumn.

    I'll check the forums for your logs in the meantime.

    Thanks Everyone and have a nice summer.

    These are the only photos I have of the assembly process, I didn't think that someone would be interested on that phase, so I didn't shot too much photos or any video of it and my bleeding fingers :hehe:.
    In the future I'll consider more that phase for future projects log.

    I found out that Da Module Thingy got the first place on the June MotM just before going to work, so I didn't have the time to say a Big Thank You to anyone liked it enough to vote for it :thumb:.

    Right now I can't work on the dock, but if all goes well, I should start the log about it by the end of September or the first days of October:dremel:, hopefully it will be interesting.

    In the meantime I'm still reading your projects logs whenever I can.

    Thanks again, and to everyone have wonderful summer :).

    Hi all I'm back, I really want to thank you again for the inputs that helped in the development of the project.

    Yesterday some of the aluminium for the dock has been delivered, tomorrow I'm going to buy an anvil so I'll start in the next few days.

    After my last upgrade the Cooler Master RGB controller + 200mm Fans, Da Module Thingy is an entry for the CMWS 2020, I thought why not? :hehe:.

    Before:

    After:

    Close to the end of the project I told you that I needed an RGB controller, my brother's case already used a Masterfan so I knew they are dead silent, so that's the reason for the Cooler Master upgrade.

    So now I think that I'm going to start a Log for the dock, I'll post a new video of Da Module Thingy in the next few days.
    As for the new projects I'm going to record most of the making, rough and tough :dremel: hammering on the anvil included :grin:.

    Cheers.

    I think it's better to continue from here for the Docking station.

    Project Technicool name: Leetfoot :cool:

    So I have seen a Lot of your project logs with all these cool 3D previews, and it got me thinking.

    I'm pretty good when it comes to 2D drawing and editing, but I didn't explore 3D enough.

    I know that some of you like @Cheapskate are super dandy pro at 3D editing, but I'm a novice and had to try and learn.

    I tried fusion 360 but it took to much time to draw with it, especially if I had to modify something later on, I then moved on Blender but it didn't help much.

    But I found my novice sweet spot Tinkercad, I'm going to move to fusion 360 and Blender later but with a slower pace, as I need to get used to them.

    I was able to draw some concepts for the dock this is the one I'll craft this time:

    [​IMG]

    As you can see it's going to be hopefully cool, vaguely Alienish/ Sci-fi Hermit Crabby like when the Case is docked.

    In the next few days I'll start with the cutting and hammering, to give you an idea most of the aluminium used for it is 10mm thick.

    I drew the 3D model mostly to help everyone to see a glimpse of what is going on inside my head and the general design, I didn't draw all the details, with some surprises it's going to be more enticing and fun.

    I hope we'll enjoy this epic little quest :dremel:.
