    The mod is not dead, relax, man :)
    I know, it's long time that I don't post update, but RL need attenction and my free time was near to zero for long time for the last months...
    BUT now I have some free time, let's take a look at what I've done :)

    I've managed to put in place the three buttons for the power on, reset and dvd eject, from top to bottom :

    [​IMG]

    To find the correct place to solder the wires for the button I've used a tester, it's an easy mod :)

    [​IMG]

    Ok, it's ready!

    The integration of the dvd in the case :

    Now I can work with the left panel, the last one :

    Soo boring job, but it's coming out nice, IMHO.
    I've even worked in the inside, it's totally linked now, all the cables goes to the psu, someone said "stealth" ? :)

    Little eye candy shot for you :

    ASAP I'll return with more update, but in the meantime I would like to know your opinion...
    Good bye, boys :)

    YAY, I'm glad to see that this mod isn't dead.

    You have made some good progress. The power buttons go perfectly with the mod, the drive stealthing looks...well really stealth lol and the side panel looks amazing.

    I can't wait for more updates.

    Dangit... with this epic revival, I now have ANOTHER exciting looking mod to read from the beginning and ooh and ah over!
    Just from the last update, this is looking sweet with the plexi and lighting, and especially the metal work!

    Tnx a lot boys!
    the drive is really stealth, in pics don't show well, but, trust in me, seems invisible :)
    The metal work took me lots of time, but now it's near to my expetation...
    More up soon, I hope :)

    Just a little update...
    The server where I usually host the pics have some trouble....
    Anyway, let's work on the liquid loop, the begin is the GPU waterblock, an Ati HD3870X2.

    [​IMG]

    On the top of the case I've placed the rads and the fans, using some screws and some double sided tape to be sure to have no vibrations at all :

    [​IMG]

    Some eyecandy shot of the liquid loop :

    To cut down the loop, i've modded the pump so now she act as a pump and as a reservoir :

    [​IMG]

    And to finish this post, some test of light positioning :

    The lighting looks very smooth, compliments the details perfectly. The loop is looking very good, nice work.
