    Sleeved cables are art, I am glad you are showing them in your mod. I hate how people hide them away.

    This project is my favourite W.I.P atm. I really like the color-scheme, design of it all and incredible attention to details. Breathtaking pretty much sums it up :) Keep it up Franklin!

    very nice. i especially like what you did with the cable brackets for the psu cable management. gives a really clean look without jamming it all behind the motherboard tray like many do.

    Haven't had much time to work on this mod lately :(
    But that doesn't mean there is no progress. Been working on the leds that will light up the windows. First I needed to make something to mount the leds. I took some acrylic sheets, one 5mm. and one 3mm. plate, glued these together and made small pieces of it. Drilled a 5mm. hole in every piece and glued all these pieces onto the frosted ring.This is the result.

    [​IMG]

    I needed quite a lot of these acrylic pieces because I have got four windows.
    One of the rings completed and ready for the leds.

    [​IMG]

    A led in every acrylic piece and connecting the wires.

    [​IMG]

    Time to test the leds.

    The endresult will be very different of course. The glass fiber sidepanels will be painted black so you won't see the strange "dots" of light anymore.

    I also received all my watercooling stuff. Again changed the original plans, will not watercool the harddisks, these are in a seperate compartment of the case anyway. I will watercool the CPU, GPU ( full cover block) the mosfets and the North and Southbridge. All EKwaterblocks except the CPU block, that's a D-tek Fuzion v2 block.

    Oh great, now I have another huge project log of incredible work to start reading from the beginning! :) :thumb:

    I like that led mounting idea! and that side panel looks wild, have to read back to see what the bowl shapes are all about (as well as to see what you've been doing to this thing since 06!)

    Hey Are the photos not showing for anyone else?
    I was able to see pics yesterday from the first post, but now I can't even see the most recent ones.

    I did just start from the beginning... And Franklin, I blame you for forcing me to put off breakfast... until 3 in the afternoon... cursed long thread. It was however completely worth the read... insanity I say!

    Quick question though, how are you drawing air in through the side vents? I can see that you are pushing air out the top vents off your radiator fans, but I don't see anywhere to mount the fans in the side ducts... I guess I will see..

    It's like a dorito!

    Must've been the slow work connection that prevented the pics for me earlier, I can see them now.
    I just finished a good night of modding and updating, and was gonna check this out more but it's midnight, and I need to catch up on some sleep...

    maybe I'll read just one page... ;)

    Ok, just finished... Stunning! This is some finely detailed plexi work. What's this deadline you're talking about? Imposed by your sponsers, or an event, or self-imposed?

    I don't think I will use it much for this casebuild, because I will need to learn a lot before I can use it.

    That tool will come in handy. In the end it might be a bit easier to use than a scroll saw :)
    Have to say that your work is absolutely awesome! I mean c'mon, your attention to detail is stunning. And I love the fact that you are molding your own polyester parts.
