    Finally my next build :)
    This time not a scratch build, but a "normal" casemod.

    Before i came in touch with the world of modding and watercooling i played a lot with HTPC's
    Back then i fell in love with all the cases of Origen AE.
    Every time i was on their site, i just had to watch the topmodel.
    I knew it was just too expensive for me, also personally i think the 12" touchscreen is useless for an htpc.
    But still ... it looks so nice....

    Because i won some prizes with "L3p D3sk" in the Coolermaster compo,
    and because it was time to prepare my next build i took the step to go for the Origen S21T.
    Also because i wanted to build something that is more easy to take to lans then my previous build ^^
    Off course this all wouldn't have been possible without the help of Freddy from Highflow.nl
    I have also chosen this case because i didn't see it being modded much yet.

    So it won't become an Htpc but a real watercooled gamer pc :)

    Having watch the desk go together it'll be interesting to see what you come up with for this one. It's not a case I've seen modded much either, i like the big screen on the front, it opens up a few options, but could possible be a hinderence for the cooling.
    I shall be watching this one...

    WOOOOOOO!!!!! Another L3p mod :D

    Loving the idea of a LAN case with a motorised touchscreen on the front.. My question though is what will you do with the touchscreen? In-game stats or something else?

    My only criticism is TWO GTX 580's?! Surely this is overkill?

    Subb'd to another great build :)

    Thanks for the replies guys !

    I had so many idea's for the screen, one of them is:

    When the build is almost finished, disassemble the screen.
    Make o movie or photo of the inside while running.
    Build back the screen.
    Set it as a background, so it looks like a window :)

    About the 580's, maybe it's an overkill, but it's a challenge to build them in and get them cool for me :)
    Since the cards are 29.5 cm and the case is only 35 cm on the inside.

    Here all the first unpacking photo's.

    So first of all i want to thank Freddy from Highflow.nl
    He will be the main sponsor of this project again.

    [​IMG]


    I want to use the grey plexi for the top window.
    The other plexi is just for playing with it and to find out about different colors.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]


    And the rest of the stuff.

    [​IMG]


    Enermax Vegas fans @ 800 RPM, i hope they will do.
    At least they are very silent.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]


    The Koolance stuff still in plastic.

    [​IMG]


    The Koolance Reservoir/Pump/Fancontroller/Pumpcontroller.
    Will be completely disassembled later on.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]


    And the Koolance Top + Heat sink (For the looks :p )

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Again, thanks Freddy !

    [​IMG]


    Bought these from colleague Kier aka Richard 2 x 1 Meter RGB led with controller
    Wonderful stuff for modders, also if you want to find out what colours would be best

    [​IMG]

    The idea was to make a complete red theme, but im in doubt now.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]


    To be one step ahead :p

    Till the next update

    I just looked up that case and my jaw literally dropped when I saw the price.
    If I ever have an abundance of money it'll definitely be on the list of things to get, but for now I'll have to settle for regular cases.

    Loved L3p D3sk, can't wait to see the final product of this venture... it sounds very promising.

    Good to see you putting your prizes to good use though Pete, subbed :thumb:.

    If this were being done by anyone else other than l3p I'd say: "please stop right now, don't you dare hurt that piece of art of a case"... But somehow I am at peace knowing that you will find a way to make an amazing looking case look even better. I don't think I'd have the "brass" to take any kind of tools to that Origen... I'd be afraid of putting even the tiniest scratch on that gorgeously brushed metal. :D

    I'll watch this mod like a hawk... This is going to end up being an amazing HTPC/LanBox when you're done with it.

    :)

    Here you go... I'm sure you can also source them locally in Australia if you look hard enough.

    Thanks, all of you !
    Well that price was also holding me for 4-5 years.
    But with the prizes from the CM compo i could realize it :lol:


    There are so many colors available, and you can dim the light.
    Also disco flickering and glowing up and down etc, but personally don't like that :p
