Ok guys, plexi is cut and in place
Will mount motherboard and video card tomorrow night and take picture so you guys can see the progress so far. Many pictures to come.
I have made changes to the power supply as well, hope you like the new look
So clean.... If you do put text, etc on it please don't use that font... and the logos etc would be more tolerable if you could find a minimal unobtrusive way to include them...*gears in brain whir loudly*
All Hardware is installed, that is all the hardware I have purchased so far. Plexi is in place and I have decided not to put ANY stickers on the plexi. I will have another way to list sponsors, but you will have to wait and see in the end. It will be removable so nothing permanent.
I have some cutting left on the plexi where the 24-pin mobo / 6-pin GPU / SATA and so on cables will come out. This will be done once I have all of the cables sleeved. I also wrapped the power supply in carbon fiber, but you cannot see that until I have some light coming from under the plexi.
The green is a little off in some of the pictures, so just imagine a bright green that hits you in the face with color.
Let me know what you guys think, and please subscribe to my thread so you can get all of the updates as they come!
Thanks for looking /MC9615
See that smoked plexi so works
Looks great in the light lets see how you can make it look in the dark eh
Agreed. That plexi looks lovely just as it is
If you have a skilled enough hand, use a dremel, or a local sign maker or something will have a laser cutter.
Nice work, nice poison color . Is it easy to get the plexi off when accesing hdd cage and so? And yeah, subbed.
Thanks. As of right now, the plexi will only come off is the Mobo is removed but with a few small modifications that will all be changed!
Thanks for the nice comments guys, glad you like it so far. After I receive some $$$ for Christmas, I will have enough to buy the processor and bring this thing to life. On the first of the month, I will be ordering the watercooling kit from CoolIT!!!
Keep an eye on my project log over the weekend. I have been working on the PSU and will have updated pictures to come. Total time spent sleeving PSU so far = 4.5 hours.
So here are a few pictures of the PSU with the carbon fiber wrap:
But now what to do with these cables:
First thing is to remove this 20+4 adapter. I hate these things. Will be replaced with a 24-pin.
3 Hours later:
Every single cable will come out of a different hole in the plexi so the adapter wont be going on until the holes are marked and drilled.
carbon fiber psu cheescake
Just wanted to let everyone know that I have changed this project name! Already have 1000 idea's running through my head!
Ordered CPU yesterday and the Watercooling kit will be on its way soon!
Update. Watercooling is in the mail
Very nice, but may I make a suggestion. Remove the CoolerMaster badge from the front of the case.
How come you changed the project name?
I think I am going to make a Green Lantern Logo to go on the Front
I had nothing to inspire the build. Was just a name I thought of and I wasn't really getting any creative ideas from it. So, I am now building a theme PC. My mind is full of idea's now!
Green Lantern logo inside glowing green
Custom logo on the vantage cooler
Plus, it will hopefully draw more attention to the build now that it has a theme
I find a theme isn't always necessary as long as the build is interesting. You've achieved that already and it's getting plenty of attention, but I can understand you looking for inspiration.
Thanks for the complement
Just want the end product to have an overall theme. Something people will remember
