    "The world has achieved brilliance without conscience. Ours is a world of nuclear giants and ethical infants."
    -General Omar Bradley, United States Army

    In 1939, world renowned scientist Albert Einstein, wrote a letter to President Roosevelt, warning americans of a possible threat involving large scale bombs made from uranium. Because of this the Manhattan Project was born, and the atomic bomb put in the forefront of US government research.

    In 1948 a US subcontracted secret corporation, wavEData, developed a top secret computer for the use of nuclear simulations. As a continuation of the Manhattan Project, this computer would be the most incredible for decades to come. Long hidden from public view, these machines were state of the art, using technology not seen anywhere before. These models were called FRAMEstor, and 124 prototypes were developed by wavEData.

    Extensive research continued until the end of the cold war in the late 1980's. Secretly all the machines were dismantled and destroyed as nuclear research dwindled. But recently we have discovered pictures of what could be the last working FRAMEstor prototype, Node 23. We are investigating the source of these photos, but present them to you for further evaluation:

    wow... I can tell a lot of thought and planning has gone into this. It has a very retro feel to it. :thumb:

    Are those 4 pipes serving a purpose WC res's maybe?

    if you read the rules to project logs, you will see that you shouldnt post in there until a actual project has begun to take shape

    once some pics go up and mods get started ill move it back to project logs

    If those two holes at the top are designated to airflow, you probably will obstruct it with you board/HDD. Also, I don't see a PSU or ROM device. I'm not even really sure if this is a computer mod, but if it is, those would help.

    Loved the story line for this and the sketchups blew me away!
    Looks superb! Love the placement of the radiators at the back ( for other folk its the purple things with the pipes coming off them inbetween the 2 fans )
    Now, go out and build this machine so we can drool over it, and seeing as 124 were built do you think maybe i could order one? :D

    Little question, what do those fans do, are they just for looks? or are they mounted on radiators?

    Excellent design - very secret government computer :D

    I'm sure you've thought of this but the opening flat looks like it might be very flimsy - especially when you open it. Perhaps you could use hydrolic pistons, like you see on car boots to reinforce it - they would also open it for you!

    I like it :thumb: we want more pics though ;)

    He did these rendering in sketchup and I guess it was too painful to do the tubing with this prog...

    Wow! What a great design! I hope you're planning on having it open by itself.

    Slowly...

    with steam...

    and bright flashing red lights with klaxxons blaring... :D

    Nice, but two comments:

    1.) Fans on the top/back - just for appearance or do they have another function I'm not too sure about?
    2.) Why are you HDD's upside down?

    Oh, and will it have some fancy WaterCooling system? :rolleyes:

    Otherwise it's quite unique, and I like the unique ideas as opposed to the same things but modified slightly differently.

    P.S.
    I hope that the word "FRAMEstor" isn't copywritten :thumb:.

    damn i like that a *lot*

    very origonal, and the little backstory makes all the difference.

    i have to ask, why are the hdd's upside down? my first guess is that your going to polish them up and have them mirrored or something, but it will be interesting to see why regardless.

    1) Those fans on the back are either side of a radiator for watercooling you can see the pipes coming of from them, but no tubes becasue there a pain to model in sketchup.
    2) I can only guess because it looks good and they will probably be polished up nicely.

    Love the storyline for the mod, and if it turns out anything like the renders it will surely be a thing to behold!

    I agree with darkhunter though, a fingerprint scanner thing would be nice. It would contribute to the whole "Secret Government Project" thing. You can pick them up at Compusa I think :)

    Just a thought scopEDog hard drives don't like being upside down. Can't remember where, possibly HD manufacturer or laptop one, that the HD's can be almost any way but upside down. Just a thought.
    You could possibly get a similar effect if you had them pointing up and forward.

    You guys are sharp :) The idea was to have a fingerprint scanner in the blue "box" on the top of the case. Yes the back half of the case will open via 2 linear actuators. And yes there is no power supply in the case. I just received all the parts for this project (including some cool milled pieces) and will be taking pictures real soon :)
