Hi guys! Happy Easter!
Thank you all for comments - and waiting!
I've been busy in last couple of weeks, again...
Did some work on my little Tower so it was time for an update.
I have installed slim dvd in the front, using thin aluminium strips and some velcro pads. As you can see those mounting I made are suppressed on rubber washers, so vibrations from dvd drive won't go on Tower.
Also after a week of painting all parts, I put together pump stand. I left few bits unpainted to make a nice contrast.
Also braided led cables in side panels and attached 2-pin connector for easy disconnect.
After that move I was able to install front and left side panel.
Here's how the Tower looks right now All braided wires waiting for connection junction.
Also braided wires on that reservoir ring cover, added 2-pin connector for thermometer that will be plugged with Bitspower plug, also braided on photo.
Another thing I did was I finished right side panel, added "led modules"
Look what mess I made on my desk!!!
After that it was time to finally finish front panel. Before i attached leds to the back of it, I had to glue all 14 hex shapes on the front.
First I had to drill 12mm holes in each of those acrylic hex shapes.
Then I had to paint all aluminium hex shapes.
I used matches to stick them with masking tape.
Put them all up and spray painted, satin black.
Then I glued them all together with acrylic shapes.
Here is front panel and glued hex shapes. I decided to glue them to main panel using double side tape.
...and finished front panel. ALL DONE! FINALLY!
I like the look of it in the sunlight. Pretty
Then I spent 100s of hours on soldering leds behind it. I pushed in one led in each of those holes through the panel and to the acrylic hex shape, where each head of leds were angled 90 degrees to light up acrylic edge. Lot of work, but it was worth it.
I tried it and plugged front panel to PSU... It was breathtaking....
Unfortunately you guys going to see this on the final update and final presentation of the Tower.
Soon.. pretty soon About 3 weeks from now
Thats just to much niceness. Looks superb . Has to be a MOTY contender once it's finished. Top modding dude
Very nice build Phinix
Everything fits so nicely together cant wait when u will finish it.
I love the size of that superb build, been planning a similar build - nowhere as awesome as yours though!
Beautiful. It's your attention to detail that makes this so wonderful to look at! This mod has never failed to impress me throughout. Well done phinx.
