    ::UPDATE:: NEW SKETCHES => 29/05/2005

    Hi there!

    Thank you for all the positive replies!
    I've been brainstorming a bit further. Especially on how to set up the PSU.
    It was a friend of mine who came up with an ingenious idea...
    He told me it may be nice to put the XLR power cons at the back of the case.
    I found this idea very great and that's why I started sketching again.

    This is the result:

    A little explanation:
    It's a drawing of the back of the case and you can see there are 4 XLR plugs drawn at the back of the case. At the left side of the plugs you can distinguisch a sort of 'canal' through which all power cables from the PSU go.
    This canal goes underneath the case a bit and ends up right at the PSU. Before the fan there is a metal plate (coloured blue), which helps sucking up cold air from beneath the case (the case's baseplate is a drilled plate with holes). The cables on the exterior plugs then go back into the case (which has a nice effect, I think).
    P.S. At the left beside the spare place where the ccfl-cylinder should come, there will be a thick acryl-plate.

    Next design:

    Basically, this is an early design for my 2 SATA HDD's mounting. Again, the same cooling concept but this time drawn without anything else :D !

    That's it for today. I hope you enjoy these ones as much as the past designs. If not, you can always comment on how it would have been better. That way I can adjust my design if I AGREE with the adjustments of course. :thumb:

    greets,
    Dries

    Hi there again,

    I've just finished my resizing work and put the pictures of my XLR's AND aluminium sleeving online!
    On the pictures you can see the male and female XLR connectors (and some crappy coloured rings that go with them but I won't use them). I remobved the rubber from the male connectors because otherwise I can't mount the alu sleeving on it.

    I notice that you are using the AC plugs with protruding pins. This is not a good idea as it opens the posibility for electrocution.

    I would suggest that you find a diferent method or at least be VERY careful.

    There is a reason AC cables always have the pins hidden.

    The way he has it set up, the power is in the female end, and the male end hooks into it to transfer power. Its just as safe as using rca jacks.

    It's as scifi3018 puts it! Not any risk (or at least not worth mentioning) for electrocution!
    By the way, work on the casemod should continue very soon as I get my 1 square meter plexiglass!
    So next week things should be happening...

    Ever considered water cooling this beast? I wouldn't mind betting most of those tubes are water proof OR could hole a waterproof tube in them... and those pipes would look sweet with coloured liquid going through them (or maybe get two 1/2 sized tubes (as in half of the size of the big tube) and spiral them through it? :D

    OR clear liquid with a coloured twirly straw (or something?) in it... and turn all those tubes into Res's? :D

    Have fun! Well done so far!

    Hi,

    I have considered watercooling but found out it took too much of the casemods precious space, so I'll have to skip that.
    Also it would cause my casemod dispenses to raise severely, which ain't that funny :worried: .
    So, I'll keep my sweet looking ordinary old skool air coolers :thumb: !

    Btw, STMC, I think your modding fantasy is way over the top :idea: !

    From what i've seen so far it looks like it will turn out very well. I really like the feel (for lack of a better word) of your sketches, and the overall look of what you've done so far. Your lathe skills are very apparent. Great work!

    Good luck.
