    mmmmmmm 192mm goodness!!!!!
    thats an 80mm right next to them mwahahahaha

    again, i will not be using all of those fans....just a few.


    the theme of the case will be very dark and powerfull.as if its creating its own lifeforce...
    youll see. :D
    the mod's will consist of the following.


    paint chassis black.....gloss black....realy gloss black
    paint fans uv purple.(all will be black with the uv paint from pc toys that you cant see till it's all lit up.)
    custom acrylic hard drive and cdrom cage's with black mirror accents and UV lit edges.
    LOTS of UV led lighting...i have 500 uv leds....hehehe
    full custom paint,with image on mobo side.pic will be posted later....
    an acrylic window with a lil twist.....to show off my acrylic expertise
    paint job colors will be hi gloss black base with purple and green in the case and in the pic on the side.


    will update with cuts on window when i get done

    this window will be VERY difficult to pull off.but i think i have my technique near ready....lol

    When I saw the first pics of the case, I thought to myself "just another Server Case mod... so common here in Brazil." Then I saw the pic of a table with big Fans and Blowers and went "Whoa! Guess I was wrong! Gotta subscribe now!" :D

    Those pics show a lot of potential... what kind of hardware is going inside of it when finished?

    I'm looking forward to the next update... good luck!

    IMO those look like used. I have about 30 fans and I've stolen them from old AT-PSU's and copiers etc. Those radial blowers are nice :) And allso those 192mm. use them!

    The guy says he is not going to put in all the fans that you see in the picture. I think some people only watch the pictures instead of reading the post.

    planned cuts

    rough drawing of window.no its not suppose to be even.
    you will see why when the window done.
    [​IMG]

    drive cages
    [​IMG]

    drive cages planed cuts
    [​IMG]
    areas with xxxxx to be removed and replaced with plexi.

    drive cages will be black with purple uv paint on them.

    and this will be the pic on the other side.
    [​IMG]
    as soon as i deside if i want to have it airbrushed on or use the paper under paint method like they use to do on motorcycle tanks.
    (you would sand panel,glue picture on,feather in edge with bondo and paint your base color around the pic,then clear,clear,clear,clear...lol)

    i also have an atx mobo tray i will be integrating into the case as the mount points are way wrong..but the back panel where it will sit is perfect less a custom mother board I/O shield holder as the hole there is to big.

    ill probibly do that in plexi to.
    :rolleyes:

    changed window...the more i looked at it the more it didnt go with what i wanted.
    [​IMG]

    looots of work there.... :rolleyes:

    ok this is the front
    [​IMG]


    this is the inside front.it has this thing in it...for the original hd lights to shine through.
    [​IMG]

    i took it off and mounted led's along it
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    leds will shine out like this.(crappy paint example...lol)
    [​IMG]

    also will put leds here.
    [​IMG]

    that will light these
    [​IMG]
    nice and bright.

    as soon as i figure out how to wire all these up..ill take some more pics of it actualy lit...lol

    the way im going to do it is put a resistor on each led and hook them up along one long wire.correct??
