The more I see of this case the more I like it :dude:
Thats some nice work there kong .... respect
What a difference it made with the window installed. Looks more and more pro for each update
Are you going to add aluminium knobs to all the potentiometers?
thanks for the additional pics...its beautiful
about the hd - the windowed one is disabbled in the bios, correct? if so, i can see how the hdd lights work, but does the spindle in in the hd itself still spin and everything?
and, of course, nice case!
Nearly finnished, I have nicked another one of macro's ideas for the pot-knobs. I have bought some translucent blue door knobs that I will turn on the lathe to the correct size.
As for the hard drive, it spins up and looks as though it's working, but just can't be written to. The main light is controlled by the rotary switch to the right of the lcd.
Awesome work man.
One small suggestion if I may, you might want to put some filters on those intake fans seeing as though they're on teh bottom.
Um, is the window done in a macroblack style or is it just very dark in there when the light's off? I'm a big fan of err 'stealth-windowing' is that a term I can use?
Anyway, this is looking great man!
It looks like there are fan guards on them, but not filters. Rather expensive Vacuum cleaner
I see your point about the intakes at the bottom, but they do not suck straight off of the floor. The base is made from two pieces of acrylic, with the fans mounted on the upper piece. The lower piece has no holes in it, so the air is drawn in from the gap between the two, thus reducing dust intake. i do have a couple of filters that could be fitted if I get a lot of dust but I find that this method is actually pretty effective.
As for the window Mr.DT, yeah, it's a macro black rip-off, but I love it!
Ah right, i see now damn good idea!
Where did the little chrome feet come from? cos they look sweet.
Lol, they are actually door knobs bought from Homebase, about £3 each! I had to drill them out to accept a nut which was glued in place so the threaded rods screw straight into them to hold everything together.
Hmm. Wouldn't have guessed that. Think ill be going to homebase then
thanks for the new pics... real smart looking case with the black window face on it... brings it all together real nicely!
how long did it take you to make it? its a really nice case!
Started the project in April, but I am not the fastest worker in the world! Just did a couple of hours at the weekends on it. I am so close to finnishing, but turning plastic on the lathe is not easy, especialy when it melts, so give it another week or so and I should be done.
don't forget to post some pictures
that is one hell of a SEXY BEAST.
now im guna have to build a case simular to it. dam you, im broke enuf as it is. ARGH, now you got me wanting to build a new case.
but first order is to finish my External LCD mount
That is by far the coolest front I have ever seen. Makes me think of some of the "ricer" cars that I've seen around town, only significantly cooler! Only 1 question though: Is that front done Macro-Black style or just a really dark smoked glass?
Didnt read all the posts did you?
There you go...
