    looks good to me!

    any more info? like what materials do the different colours mean?

    check out pc-max for some hardcore shuttle customisation!

    btw, the 'VOTING' thread and then 'Klick mich' takes you to some, but not all of the finished shots.

    Yeah ive been to pc-max ;) the mods are indeed very nice

    Right color guide is as followed

    Grey - brushed alui
    Black/sides/top - Window (might be black tinted unsure ATM)
    Blue - Blue plexi transparent
    black on front edges - New custom front spry'd black

    The skirt around the bottom will be custom made from probably wood with plexi lining it lighted blue via leds - the added base will also provide space for the shuttle PSU as it is to be relocated under the chassis.
    Also i might add another PSU as im thinking along the lines of overclocking this sucker - which means watercooling

    Im thinking along the lines of, Black ice micro Radiator - and a Res made th same shape as the PSU that will sit as if it was the PSU
    Not sure on a pump?? or waterblock ATM but all this will follow after the design change

    Looks like a very nice design! :thumb: Good work.

    As for the watercooling setup: if you can live with small diameter tubing I'd go with Aqua-Computer and/or Innovatek stuff all the way, as it is space-efficient. Use the Swiftech MCP600 for a pump. Small, powerful, quiet, 12V. If you are tempted by larger diameter tubing (harder to accomodate in such a small space however, I would consider the Cathar's White Water block (the two-barb version; you have no space to mess with Y splitters).

    that looks really cool Jack,

    i like the sort of plexi 'shell' around the aluminium (i hope im interpreting the picture right!)

    Cheers for the reply's guys

    Nexxo - Not really fused regarding tube size, but can you get a small rad with that type of barb??

    Anyone know where to get blue transparent plexi/acrylic from?
    Glow shop sells it but only in 250mm square i need just over 300mm square!
    i dont really fancy paying £60 for a 1m?? HELP

    The Black Ice Micro has 9.5mm OD barbs, which according to Innovatek can still be used with their 8mm ID x 1mm wall thickness tubing. However I'm sure you can get adapters also.

    For plexi, also look at sign manufacturers.
