Looking great. Fantastic work so far.
Got the replacement Kama Meter installed, in this shot you can see the unfinished slot loading DVD drive cover made out of a cut down 5.25" blank.
Crystal Clear LCD but its very fragile to touch!
I like the ACRyan fans!
Good bondo work too!
this is look goodie mankz only the yankz and candians call it bondo get to terms with english products so thats somr good body filling or good work with the p38
I start to love those Flip DVD Drives Awesome work dude can't wait to see more.
I'm very interested in µ-ATX mod, I recently bought an Aerocube from Aerocool with a similar chassis of your and I plan to put inside a whole liquid cooling system (excepted the rad ). Why don't you put a liquid cooling system too
By the way you did a great work until now
ryan...bro...Great work!!! I love what you have done with this mod...very simple ideas and your work is very thorough. You've inspired me to do a micro mod!
Thanks for all your comments! I enjoy reading them and make posting worth wile!
ive been very busy recently and recovering from a 24h LAN party yesterday but the plan is to get the case ready for paint over the next two weeks then im going back of holiday the week after that soooo it should be in paint the week after that. Hopefully
Watercooling is a future possibility 330td but first I want a new card to replace my 7900 now that I have Crysis hehe
Right on!! in England bondo is a brand of super glue and I will admit I was a little confused when I first joined this forum and people were using that particular term
Nice bondo work! (had to look it up the first time to ) The three fans looks massive in that tiny case, that's cool
I know, I know.. no updates in ages! im going on holiday again tomorrow so no updates for another week or so
Picked the colour for this case, its a dark grey/silver and the reason I went for such colour rather than a bright green or blue is that the case has a lot of colourful lights and UV effects so I think a bright colour outside would have been too much really.
1. Cut all three windows bigger
2. Fit new window perspex and apply dark window tint (or buy pre-tinted perspex)
3. Finish filler work on the front bezel and wet and dry etc
5. Buy and fit matching illuminated reset/HDD activity switch
6. Make a single piece cover for the two 5.25" bays and slot loading drive out of tinted perspex
Wise choice of colour there.
i got the same cube, so cant wait to see the finished thing. keep up the good work.
That LCD is really brittle. I think putting a piece of perspex over it would look cool, and protect it.
Still haven't finished this case It will be done by xmas.. promise!
all ive done since the last update is shorten lots of cables and just general cable management really.
Got hold of some nose cones for the front three fans, after removing they bottom ring they have the perfect base diameter for the hubs of my 80mm AC Ryan fans.
Cool nose cones.
looking good there mate, sweet colour!
One question: what brand DVD-drive is that, and how can i get my hands on one?
I'm really looking for a slot-loader for my own project!
Thanks for your comments!
Slot loaders are awesome and make friends and family go "woah!!"
Mine was from here: http://www.ebuyer.com/product/128258 and the IDE adapter was from Kustompcs.co.uk
stripped the cube of its dignity :O
A strangely relaxing part of the paint process
its seriously smooth now and ready to be shot with a coat of primer to show up blemishes and pin holes so it can be spot filled and sanded etc
Out to get some primer now so I will post another mini update tonight or tomorrow.
The primer has dried and has showed up around 10 or so pin holes which need to be filled.. much better than I expected actually
marked the larger windows to be cut on all three of the case panels
Lots of work to be done later to neaten up those edges
