    that should be it spammed to page 2... sorry, but the 100 of image on the other page was annoing xD... now for the update:

    the finished milling result... will have to do some more about this... but you get the idea...

    (sorry for blurry pics...)

    [​IMG]

    and the other side... i might do something about the milling traces, sand it or something... might paint it on one side... still thinking.. any suggestions?

    [​IMG]

    it looks sooo cool under UV:D.. i have a m8 thats foto freak and hope to maybe give him the challenge to take a photoshoot of the thing when its done xD.. would be nice

    comments?

    From what I've read... don't remember where, but I think it was in a comment thread to some extensive fan test.. perhaps over at scilentpcreview.com... anyway, those Noctua fans don't handle back pressure well, and thus they are not well suited for pushing/sucking air through a radiator.. especially not with that restricting hole mesh on it. Another fan with less steep angle on the fan blades might give you more cooling at the same noise level. The Nexxus D12SL-12 fan for example, is very quiet and handles the back pressure better. I bet there are other fans that would work better as well.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    and got the spare plates cut off the main parts, made the whole thing look twice as small xD:bunny:
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    and them both... it still looks very non finished:p... but i hope itl soon change! just have some hardware i need :/
    [​IMG]

    i couldnt resist!.. a little teaser and need som help from you guys:D
    masking tape... gonna be removed soon tatadaaaa
    [​IMG]

    blurry pic sry for that xD
    [​IMG]

    NOW!... should it look like this:
    [​IMG]

    or this:
    [​IMG]

    i think im gonna go for the brushed look and i might paint it black... will have to try this on some scrap piece.

    also made my own home made round IDE cables because i was bored:D this is very easy to do and they work fine afterwords, just get a little knife and cut a tine whole between the wires and then just use force to seperate the rest from the rest of the big wire:D
    [​IMG]

    thats all i got for now:)... happy newyear and comments to everybody!

    Looks interesting, but: Would you please resize your pictures? They take almost 30 MB on the first page and more than 15 MB on the second page. That's way too much. Loading takes ages and scrolling is less smooth than usually.

    The pics are huge! I can tell you need to clean under your fingernails!:D
    Seriously, you will run out of bandwidth soon if you don't resize them.

    update about the raddy:D

    finally got some spare time to play with the computer again

    and cleaned my desktop:p
    [​IMG]

    at school i made this for fun and to see how the text would turn out, it was just a quick skecth but i like it
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    look how thich this plate is:D 10mm xD took a lot of time to mill
    [​IMG]

    for the raddy mount this was what i made first
    [​IMG]

    i then decided to just make 2 plates that would hold each end
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    no chance of the mobo suffering of air need:D
    [​IMG]

    from the rear
    [​IMG]

    again
    [​IMG]

    mounted with theese
    [​IMG]

    and this was a little idea i had, gonna think a bit more about that heh
    [​IMG]

    just playing with the design for the top, take a look:)

    scanning the drawing in and making it a texture
    [​IMG]

    making splines above the text
    [​IMG]

    correcting measures of splines
    [​IMG]

    extruding the splines to get the text
    [​IMG]

    applying text to a plate
    [​IMG]

    the finished result with a glass plate on the back:
    [​IMG]

    thats what i just got made:) im thinking of something in the middle under and above the text but didnt get that made today:) so now im going home:D


    thats all for now, im wating on reply on how to get the missing parts and hopefully ill soon make enough money to buy em if i cant get something sponsored:D

    ey thx man ill considder that:) right now im working on whats its gonna cost me to get the same on my website:p but its a nice offer takker så meget:D

    finally got the parts done!... my group mate came 2 hours late so suddenly we had alot to do:/.. but i managed to make a little of my own once in a while:)

    the results (no wip sorry... but guess you know the drill:p):

    [​IMG]

    and this is how they are to be placed:

    [​IMG]

    the wholes i countersunk

    [​IMG]

    so it would look like this

    [​IMG]

    you can really see the milling traces xD... looks kinda cool actually so i think ill keep it this way

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    and the fun part! tapping:bunny: dont know why but i love this part

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    there is only one little problem, you would notice that on the first picture there is a gab between the bar and the plexi... this is why:

    [​IMG]

    ... have to countersink this mofo:).. but then everything should fit like a glove:D

    and you may have noticed all the closeups:p... i "borrowed" my sisters cam and went mental... this was what came from that:

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    that was what i had to offer

    comments are highly recommended or else the dog is gonna eat you! xD
