Next up to finish off the install and to do the final touches
And im done
Well finished off the wirering today did a bit of a tidy up not perfect but still, got the HDD in and instaled Media center.
Tested then put under the TV will get some Candy Shots of it under the TV later but here are the final pictures of it all together .
Damn morgan! absolutely top notch job youve done there, looks the mutts nutts!
really does look special the way its so perfectly made,
Looks absolutely superb. I am so unbelievably jealous, so quiet and so cool.
wow thats really nice
Very, very nice. Great job Have you thought of putting in a VFD display though ? It would serve some function as well as adding some flash.
Nice work Morgan, seriously, you should do more modding work. Its crazy good.
I actually don't know why I've missed this log this far, the mod is top notch!
The only thing might be that it'd need some sleevingwork, but otherwise it looks great.
A question about the tubing, what kind of tube is it, if you would be so kind as to give me the make and model, PM me if you don't want to reveal it here
Five stars from me.
Edit: Do you know if the tubing is UV-reactive? Answers to these questions would be much appreciated.
@ heero195 - Im not a huge fan of front displays they, I used to have an lcd in the front of my case but found that i never really looked at it so no point spoling the cleaness of the front display just to put one in .
@ Darkened - Its Innovatek Specal Tubing you can get Blue, green or clear and its really flexible and doesn't kink, I would put it down as the best 10mm tubing you can get.
@ mattthegamer463 - Custom built Cube is on its way .
Thanks to all for the comments
Very nice work!!!
I would add a fan in there, as the hd has no cooling at all, and so the psu. You could use a laptop hard disk: more silent and cool.
I fear that the temps will get pretty high in there...
Nice and well performed job, i especially love the cooling, and the front being so clean is a very nice touch.
Man i wish i could get hold of that countersinker tool u got there.
Very nice work ! the orange tubing against the black metal looks mint !
Thanks for the fast response M_D_K, keep up the good work (can't wait the final pics )
NICE, although I would try to fit a 120 fan so you can have a small air flow and don't over heat the components
Excuse the poor pictures its crazy dark in the living room and I am a poor Photographer.
but this is it on its argos stand rock on
It just about fits in the shelf there is only a few mm between the blades and the other shelf all is good.
And its done onwards to the next project.
dang that sweet! Nicest HTPC iv ever seen! Can i have one, with stand and the Sony LCD tv! lol
Beautiful set up. nuf said!
mental ! look so good. and you have such a nice flat screen.
Thanks its not bad for the money it servs a purpose hehe not had paint splated around my room yet im quite disapointed, unfortunatly it was the parents choice I would of had an LG.
Well your wish may come true watch this space as production on a modified version starts soon .
ooh! Same TV as I've got! (or well, it looks like mine.. might be more than one model with the same design..)
I really like this project. I'll be doing similar in the future but without all of the nice tools. I just have a few questions.
#1 How did you bend the metal? I'll be getting a bending break which works great for bending in one direction. For example I know I could bend the front and back with ease. Where I don't understand is how to bend the sides up after doing the front/back. Did you freehand it or do you have some sort of special tool that does the job?
#2 I guess I only had one question
