    :D

    Well, the camera i use as usual is not mine, my mother bought it. And she is on holyday this week. So i had to make pictures with my 5jears old 1MP camera whitout any focus or zoom options.
    And i hav'nt got much time the past few day's. I only polished the zalman CPU block, made a hole on top for the radiator, and mounted the 2 alu sheets on top and below the mother board tray to hide the right sidepanel.
    I will first do some more modding before i will do an update. Or do you realy can't wait :hehe:

    oh, stu_69, do you have other cases in mind? Compared with a lian-li with the same price, i think this case has much more modding potential.

    update

    I've "borrowed" the digicam from my sister, and made some pics today. So i hav'nt got pics while modding (sorry :p )



    [​IMG]
    This is the eheim cap (realy? :duh: ) the sponge inside is just for holding the mesh, because i need to glue it one of these day's.

    [​IMG]
    The polished zalman cooler

    [​IMG]
    Here you can see 2 brake cable's being mounted.

    [​IMG]
    And a close up. My fingerprint is visible on the polished alu ;)

    [​IMG]
    A test fit (needs to be polished and mounted on the right way) of the mesh witch is also used at the bottom of the case, i don't wanna see the fan's. do you?

    [​IMG]
    The rad mounted on top. I'm working on a cover for it.

    [​IMG]
    1 of the metal sheets i made to prevent seeing the sidepanel beyond the mobo tray.

    Tomorrow my stickers are ready :rock:
    I hope you like the pics, not a realy big update, but i had the chance to make some foto's so i did.

    I hope you can say "I'm lovin' it" again after this: :dremel:

    [​IMG]
    The PSU

    [​IMG]
    The molex connector

    [​IMG]
    And the ATX connector. The cable is nicely moved away, no folded atx cable anymore.

    This was the small secret i had. I wanted to get them in production, but it's way too expansive when i want to sell them for a nice price.

    Nope, can't say the McDonald's thing anymore. But I can say 'So fresh, so clean' as the Outkast song goes.

    love the molex and atx connector covers - great idea.
    I guess that's a SCART cable on the ATX, but what's on the molexes?

    update

    Back from the cebit, so i had some time for modding:

    I forgotten to make some pics of the fangrill and a overall view of the case, you will see them next time ;)

    [​IMG]
    The parts i need for the fan.

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    And this is how it looks like with a test-fit, it needs to be polished, lightened, and the red thing should be painted.

    [​IMG]
    The pump.

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    The finished sheet, polished and a logo sandblasted in it.

    ATM i'm looking for the hardware and other stuff, so some things witch i were modding (like the watercooling) are on hold. Because i first need to know witch hardware will be in it.

    So, that's it for now, hope to do a next update on sunday, comments and thread ratings are welcome :dremel:

    Dont know how I missed this one, there is some killer modding going on in this thread :dremel:

    I also must say congratulations, I think you are the only modder in history to make webbing look good on a computer case. Cant wait to see this finished :rock:

    small update

    *insert your own comment

    There are 2 led's in the middle, a white one and a blue one, on the pics it isn't very good visible, but the plexi ring in the middle has an nice blue-white junction.

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    Mounted in the case

    I'm not 100% shure about the fanguard, because it's quite noisy, i can hear the fan over my other 2 pc's. And those are not silent ;) Maybe a wire grill like the 80mm fan witch is placed above it (left on the last picture).

    update

    [​IMG]
    I've made a piece of aluminium, made 4 holes in it and sanded it down. For what would this be? Lets see....

    [​IMG]
    Adding a piece of plexi with 5 white led's

    [​IMG]

    It's going to be some kind of panel where i fit in those brake cable's. Because the tiny cables inside have a maximum lengt because i made them from a IDE cable, i need a place where i can extend them. On the back i can solder them to another cable, to continue my way.

    Offcourse i could yust simply hide my signal cable's beyond the mobo tray, but i like it on this way.

    [​IMG]
    The place where it should be.

    [​IMG]

    The white color isn't white at the pictures, the camera doesn't like white light :( Also the 2 cable's at the lower right side should be mounted. And the plastic clips on the lower left side are screwed on the backplate by now. Doesn't mather for the pictures.

    Next thing to do is finishing the PSU, comments and so are welcome :)
