This looks awesome!
This I like! Someone who doesn't use the same placement design as me or Laine when working in a Fractal-Design Array. It's a really nice and creative build you've there. Keep it up!
your praise means a lot to me since I came through your array mod on the amazing case.
It's a cool and hellishly gorgeous stock case. But it's equally hellish to build with and the anodized black scratches really easily. But I have faith in you ability and you've already done stuff I'd never thinked off. You build it thinking 3-dimensional and I think that it's the absolutely right approach to make everything fit and look nicely composed.
The stock PSU is not really mod-able from what I've heard so I wouldn't add any connectors to it. I added some on my be-quiet 350w SFX and it has worked properly in about a year with my i5 750 and HD5870.
Thanks for the tip
I always wanted to replace the PSU with a stronger one because I'm installing a GTX260 and the power supply have not enough watt.
Perhaps i use the Newton R2 650W from Fractal Design ;-)
No problem, good luck bro.
Some news for you
i decided to make a new blog called Project aurora on blogspot
if you are interestet please read it
It is exactly the same as here in the worklog just made clearer
Here it is: project-aurora.blogspot.com
Nice work m8
and interesting colors
I'm curious how it will look when it's done!
nice work but when i first saw this thread i thought confusis had started his latest build because he has been using the aurora name for so long, like well over 2 years and a few builds / designs / etc under it.

also the startup: Aurora Creative Studios NZ is owned by confusis
i only mention these because you asked confusis if there were any link to his work because you hadn't seen it.
That aside i really like this build, the use of felt is great, does it ain in reducing vibrations / sound dampening at all? are you planning on orange hoses for the loop and what colors are you sleeving the cables. The quality of work so far is great, definitively a mod i plan to follow as it progresses.
Very nice work from confusis
But i investet a lot of time to find the right name for my mod.
I didn´t now that confusis had the same idea.
I don't know yet if it reduces vibrations or sound but when i finished my casemod i can tell you
I will use clear hoses with orange cooling liquid. The cables should be sleeved in black with some orange in it.
And thanks at all for the links and the great comment
Can't recommend orange liquid. It looks green against black backgrounds.
Thanks for the information...
what do you think, should i take orange hoses or sleeving the hoses black?
orange hoses would be best, the colored coolant can gunk up your blocks / rad / etc and sleeving the hoses meant u wont see easily if one collapses
just my $0.02
What he said
Looking very interesting, very unique idea with the felt. Design looks awesome too.
Some new ideas
Since my uncle kindly makes available his CNC machine for me, I can now very accurately engrave a logo in the front.
Here I have prepared a few sketches...
But I don't know which one I should take. That with the rounded or squared edges.
Only the rounded edges:
At the left side the one with the rounded edges and at the right side the other one.
I'm curious about your opinions
Number 1. is the hands down winner for me, why? The combination of straight lines and curved corners is reminiscent of the design of the case
Keep up the great work, looking forward to seeing what you come up with next.
the first text concept compliments the case well with the curved corners so personally this is the font type to be using, only thing I'd work On further is the letter 'O'. The placement of the gap make it difficult to decipher even though I know what it says. If you were to write a full alphabet with this type face then I'd presume D would look similar maybe try the gap in the O at the middle bottom of the character.
Nice work by the way looking forward to see the progress!
number 1 is my favorite too but i wasn't 100% sure.
Number 1. Rounded corners.
Separate names with a comma.
