    [​IMG]


    the L.I.S…. first version of integration….


    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]


    but I did not like the apparent screws.... Then..... I manufactured, or rather "moulded", of the parts specifically made for the LIS!!!
    I used a second mask-bay, identical to the one used for the LIS...

    let's go, time to the pictures!.... for understanding, it is very easierwith pics....

    the LIS, with the "parts" home-made with bondo.... and the blue pane which f***ing me largely because it don't remained convex! after a small treatment the thermal decapor, it was shown much more flexible!!!:
    [​IMG]

    the bondo job and sandpapered frontage........ it is better without the holes and the screws!!!
    [​IMG]

    detail of a home-made parts!!!

    one again!

    the original PSU became really powerless for the system, I changed it for a thermaltake butterfly 480 watts
    so, some modding on it:

    normally it looks like that, at the origin without modifications.... [​IMG]


    pics !:

    i really like, there's a lot of attention to little details. that's why i like it so much. too bad you're not proud enough of your AMD64 3400+, i have 2 of them, a NewCastle and a Clawhammer. i really like your LIS VFD as well. i have an LIS2 BlueEye LCD, wish i had the extra cash to get the VFD, it's sooo much nicer. but you have another LCD on there. what kind is that?

    well well well..... :blush:

    many questions and congrats!!!! great thanks to all of you!! :rock: :rock:

    so... time to answer.

    --->firefox90: the butterfly 480w is a good PSU. good voltage and they are really stable on full charge. (i buy this second hand one for only 60€.... so i modded it the same day than the postman give ite to me!!! lol)

    --->RegularChaos: i sanded the plexi with P400, P600 and P1000 wet sand-paper. but you must sand gently and smoothly in straigth line. mot in circle.

    --->horgboy: well.... i feel this the last stages of this mod... i hope... because... i have ordered this case... in november 2000...... and i begining the mod in january 2001... 5 final version at this time.... lol :D

    --->Jokkocze: ihave thinkinh about that... but, it is not planned for now. maybe in th e near future :hip:

    --->B.Psycho8, white modder, deiol: really thanks!

    --->J-Nonymous: well done. indeed, it's metal tubing used for bath hose. it's not very dangerous. simply, it should be paid attention that it don't have there a contact with the mobo or other electrical parts. ;)

    --->kaotic504: yes! i'm proud of my AMD64 3400+ (newcastle for the mine!).... why not??? its a powerfull processor! but.......but, it heats much... very much. but now... with watercooling, it's not a problem!
    the second LCD is a Crystalfontz 634 usb series, with 4*20 display capabilities.

    --->tetleyex: all details are made with dremel the tools called "high speed cutter" for dremel.....
    erf... the correct sentence is "I am a French modder of computer".... isn't it?
