    Ok guys i got my ram today, and also i wanted to fit the radiator and mobo gfx card. To see how it looked, I'm probably gonna make a new cover, but i will see, as you can see in the shots below, I dont know if i should have the cover in front of the card kinda or half between the gfx card.

    Some of the panels yes, im also thinking of using vinyl on others pieces. At least then if i were to spray some of the panels there is less chance of scratching , which i dont really want.

    Anyhow here is an Update.

    I've made a new motherboard cover for my case. And done some refurnishing on some of the panels for them to all fit in. (PSU Cover, I/O Cover)

    And i also had to cut two new lengths of threaded rod for the motherboard cover. You will see ive gone with something different. I intend to make a detail piece for the motherboard cover aswell. (tomorrow yea)

    You can also see becoz of my OCZ Reaper's I've done this cover like this, gives the case a sense of depth and life, than the plain flatness like some cheap art that created.

    So as you can see, my new motherboard cover cut. Also holes made for fitment

    [​IMG]

    Next i made 3 of these brackets for the cover that will be fitted onto the mother tray where the watercooling holes are.

    [​IMG]

    How it will bend....

    [​IMG]

    As you can see, the really cool curve ive given the panel...and you can see the 3 lil brackets that are in place, and are holding the panel by dome nuts.

    [​IMG]

    Next was to cut thread bar for the other side of the cover. And as you can see fitted all good. Will need to make a new one for the very bottom one becoz its like angled wrong and not directly hole to hole.

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    Now to get onto the I/O cover, all i wanted to do here was extended a piece of the cover. As you can see below

    For those that wondered how the GFX card and sound card are mounted, here's a back pic of the custom man PCI slots.

    [​IMG]

    And then some shots of the case etc.

    [​IMG]

    So some things i want to do to this case, is get UV green liquid for my watercooling i rate. Get a UV light. I'm gonna make a custom res soon. Tomorrow i will also probably get the side panel window done. Maybe... I'm gonna be going with something else but PVC tubing, you'll see.

    Until tomorrow yea.....DoOb's

    Its coming on really well, i'm liking the motherboard cover. I was wondering how you were going to attach your sound and gfx cards, as this was something i've been pondering with my case mod.
    Keep up the great work, can't wait for your next update

    Thanks CS, yea its gonna look wicked with the detailed piece on. Until then

    Most casemods become a mission when installing or changing hardware. I this time dont intended changing the motherboard which is the main bother. Vinyl will look super sweet, and alot netter than paint if apply properly.

    Thanks man, welcome to Bit-tech man.

    So i promised you guys a nice looking Detailed cover well here it is. i must say my jigsaw skills are really improving with each insane cut that ive done.

    So here are some pics and angle shots of my cover detail piece. Still need to think of a side panel window. hmmm....

    Nicely cut detailed piece. Jigsaw Cheesecake yea.

    After drilling the respectable holes to be held on by dome nuts and bolts to the main cover ,here it is fitted in the case.

    I think if you reversed the cut and had the pointy bits point out( and by out i meant point to the left.) because when I look at it I focus on the curves and not the pointy bits.
    If you reversed the 3rd one that would be the best. Or even the second one.

    I have to agree with 500mph, you should definately point them outwards. When I saw the designs, my first reaction was: "huh, why is he putting bubbles on the outside and not spikes" :p
