Nice project Bill.
And I have since got into star trek, extremely late fan.
Awesome Waynio! and I'm betting you were already Star Wars fan?! I recruited Cheaps to design a limited handful of our Overkill machined aluminum fan grills in anticipation of "The Force Awakens"
Been a star wars fan since I was in diapers, force awakens has been a lifetime coming.
They are,I would consider an Empire one if it was hollowed out more.
Awesome Grills Buddy!
I like how you work on metal! (y)
I need my own CNC
yeah, "Heavy metal" is good description...haha and Top panel and bezel, finished for the Phanteks Luxe. Nest step is wet sanding the clearcoat on the side panels this Thursday.
airbrush looks great
Need to illuminate them next We should have the side panels finished today.
PSU chassis side shroud is finished.
I'll be adding darkside RGB LED kit with power invertor and remote to illuminate the top panel, http://mnpctech.com/pc-led-lights/rgb-colored-custom-gaming-pc-case-mod-light-package.html
You got me curious now. More airflow, a more dramatic taper to the center, or cut like the Rebel?
Bigger vents. btw, Did anyone else see The Martian this weekend? I'm calling it Ridley's Redemption for Prometheus
Steps in painting Koolance Rp-452x2 Reservoir faceplate
1. Medium grit sand paper to promote adhesion on face. (Not necessary to remove anodized surface)
2. Clear off surfaces with Tack Cloth, and Tape Off inside portion of plate
3. Apply SEM Self Etching White primer, allow cure for 30 minutes
4. Apply 5 coats in 5 min intervals of Rustoleum brand Gloss White Enamel paint from Home Depot
5. Allow Rustoelum Enamel paint to air dry cure for 24 hours before handling
6. (Optional) Apply Gloss Clear coat finish to paint (next step this weekend)
I use 3M 233+ auto body tape. Great adhesion, no glue residue
I used a small touch-up brush on portions that didn't get fully covered with the tape.
Tomorrow I'll clear coat it.
amazing work as always.
Thanks for tuning in and commening! RGB lighting installed in top panel. Very EASY and effective mod for accenting the "16 BIT Spock" airbrushed mural by Brad
Had few minutes to work on this project over the weekend. Received Koolance 90 fittings, got the Koolance dual res installed. Also, for anyone interested in the Phanteks Enthoo Luxe tower, you can fit Darkside's 240/360 27.5mm slim radiators under the top cover. I'll try and remember to measure the total space under the cover when I return to the shop this week.
Thanks for waiting gang! Finished my Computex 2016 build obligations and back on this project, so yesterday I installed Bitspower's VG-980TIZEX VGA Block Acrylic (Clear) on the ZOTAC GTX980Ti AMP Extreme 6GB Video cards. I hope to start and finish the liquid loop layout this week.
While working on the PETG water loop, I recorded and uploaded a quick guide on cutting & bending PETG tubing for your PC Water Cooling
hey gang, I'm still alive, and the build is finally finished, I'll be taking and posting posting final pics this weekend
I just need to add the clear panel and it's ready to ship. I ordered a shipping crate from OriginPC, to save myself time. It includes foam and inner cardboard shell. Scale USS Enterprise was added to the photos for fun for mod zoo staffer, Graham
Fantastic...as usual...like all mods coming out from your magic workshop Mr Owen...thanks to share
Thank you kim! I'm excited to get back to my own build which will be excuse to finally my desk, too!
