    Moaaaaaar!



    Big Thanks to Lamptron!

    This fan controller will regulate the temperature of the waterloop and also the case. The automated controls will give me the power to keep the in line water temperature at around 40 degrees celsius :)

    Thats a hot fan controller, are you going to change the aluminum faceplate to an acrylic on to match the case.?

    Gave the case a washdown, it looks 100% better shiny.

    See those companies on my case, they give plenty of love, that they do. A big thanks to all my sponsors, this is a permanent place for them to live :)

    See the white panel, that will glow red, its opal acrylic.

    The internal space doesnt look so big now does it!

    Noiseblocker multiframe, quite easily my favourite fan.

    I use a lot of emoticons in my posts and I have decided to instead, use them in my photos.

    You make acrylic look like brushed metal, construct entire cases out of acrylic panels and I see you are now using black oxide screws instead of the nikel coated ones.

    Is there anything you can't do?

    I'm not terribly great at cooking....


    I know right, I got an email about these balls from deviant art and was about to delete it but I clicked into it and was like OMG MUST HAVE!

    Thanks, took ages to do so I am glad people are noticing it!

    Yeah I am a big fan of having big windows. True modders have nothing to hide in the way of cables :)

    Very busy at current, got two of the bigger ones in progress and the mini one is mine!

    Hey DJ - have you tried experimenting with heat-bending acrylic yet?

    I have and I am not very good at it, yet :)

    More videos are on the way!


    [​IMG]

    I've been out for a few days but I am back! Here is an update to make up for lost time!


    [​IMG]
    The case, washed and empty. It looks spacious atm but as we all know, that doesnt tend to last long once the components are in.


    [​IMG]
    An inverter that won't light itself on fire, it's a nice change :)


    [​IMG]
    The last of the NB-12's came in and I was able to complete my radiator.


    [​IMG]
    I got my gloves on and went to work on removing heatsinks!


    [​IMG]
    It's impossible not to make a mess and that heatsink weighs some as well!


    [​IMG]
    Another one down, it's still sexy :) Only my second ROG board but I am pretty hooked.


    [​IMG]
    Plenty of room for the watercooling, looking to be an easy install so far!


    [​IMG]
    Think I might change the two reds I have for white cold cathodes, theres just TOO much red atm.


    [​IMG]
    A ram block with no ram. Yet.


    [​IMG]
    Full EK and Mayhem dye, what a combo!


    [​IMG]
    See the top left? Thats a temperature inline and after the two radiators I have a temperature inline as well.

    The loop IS NOT an equilibrium, the in and out temperatures differ up to 5 degrees when overclocking and GPU burning.

    [​IMG]
    Bottom right, the temperature inline coming out of the radiators.


    Thats all I have for you today! There is more coming and I will be setting up somewhat of a photoshoot when the white cold cathodes come in!

    I am really liking this slightly smaller case, very well laid out.

    I am looking at that same Lamptron fan controller for my project and after seeing that video I think I am about to hit 'buy' :D.

    Also, where did you get those stress balls from? They are soooo cool haha.

    I have only good things to say about that controller, it has kept my water temperature constant and I can keep the computer folding whilst I go to uni without any worry that it will overheat.

    The stress balls are from deviant art, I don't know why I click on their junk emails but I did and I saw them and was like MUST...RESIST URGE TO BUY....

    But I failed and here they are!

    wow, this case is really spectacular. If I am truly honest, I am more of a fan of hidden away PCs, with no side windows; This case however makes me think side windows really can be awesome too. Great Work!

    Also I love the 4 stages of modding shot. Me wantz some of those stress balls too!

    wow..this one, just like the carbide, is full of WIN

    A quick question, will it be up for sale @ your store at some point, and if so ball park figure on price?

    I want one if their going to go up for sale, but would have to save so knowing price would be cool for down the track. :)
