    NEXT! was to put those LED's to good use!! and i gotta say......its great to see somethings just work to plan!


    the first shot was under almost full light....and still i was impressed.

    Next was with one light on in the workshop


    [​IMG]



    Finally lights out!!!!!!! the MEGA res looks so classy really catches the light off thr back panel.......

    Next was to try the MEGA res with the "bondo'd" custom side panel......the effect is more than i'd had hoped for... thelight that comes thru is very even and intense.

    You all knew that HPR3 was going to have a motherboard cover :) just like HP2 and Heveyplex SLB i wanted to carry the tradition into this mod as well.

    But knew i had to come up with something new....something or an idea that hasnt been seen before.

    The hole internal frosted plex theme was goin to be the biggest bonus for this next mod and would allow me to do something that was a little more "out-there"


    Of course the material of choice is plex!! a pretty much freehand pattern is cut using the good o'l jigsaw....


    [​IMG]



    Next was to bend the edges to make the" Cage"


    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]



    The paper is stripped off and the cage is layed in for a test fit :)


    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]



    I picked abunch of these little fans up,while i dont think the cage needs any extra cooling i just thought the frosted look of the mini fan would make a geat looking addition.


    [​IMG]



    A hole is meaured, marked and cut


    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]


    Another is added for the AGP card and allows for the water cooling.

    With the 2 main holes cut with only the CPU cooling holes to be added later the cage is taken inside and frost sanded, with 800g wet and dry.



    [​IMG]

    A back wall that was previously cut was also sanded.

    [​IMG]


    the new panels are slotted in and again checked for fit.

    [​IMG]


    The cage will allow for plenty of airflow to pass thru its large claw type arches


    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]


    The previously modded DD-TDX block is bolted in, holes are marked and drilled for the the water lines to pass thru.

    All thats left to at this stage is to see how the cage works with the rest of the lighting.

    with all blue lighting , the cage only needs 2 extra lights for a full effect.

    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]



    With the backbard lit red and blue lights in the cage

    [​IMG]



    [​IMG]



    and again using both red and blue lights to produce a purple effect on the back board.
