    RAVENTON?


    Hello guys, i'm new here. I've been watching great modders here for a while now, and just thought i wanna share my personal modded PC too. So here we go.



    What Started it All

    I've always wanted to mod my pc. But unfortunately my first attempt was an epic fail.
    Due to lack of nice PC parts and modding experience it was a failure.


    from this:

    tho this:

    So ever since that day I wanted to try it again one more time. And there was the Lamborghini Reventon Car appeared.

    The first time i saw this, i was inlove and wanted to create a PC based from it's concept. But unfortunately, the right Case was not yet there. Until i saw the release of the Silverstone Raven RV01.

    I knew it was the "Perfect" for the Reventon style PC Case.



    My Initial Design

    So after thinking and playing through Adobe Photoshop. I finally came up with my design for the Reventon PC Case Project.

    So it Begins

    As much about the work logs. I wasnt able to take more photos for the work logs since i wasnt thinking of posting it anywhere that time. It was late when i realized i should have.
    Sorry...

    I started painting it using 5 cans of 1k Auto Acrylic paint with UV Protection.

    color- CastingIRON


    here im showing the front panel with the paint and added grooving

    here's the lower part of the front with the intake like the Reventon's front bumper.

    here's the top panel placing all the laser-cut acrylic to check if its good to go.

    and with the paint

    Looking good, but I don't understand how the first mod you tried was a failure?

    Anyway It would be sick (or maybe a little corny I don't know) if you got some coasters and made them look like the wheels, shrouded up and all.

    The 5870 Mod

    After buying and installing my new ATI Radeon 5870 i felt like it needs some modding too. So i started designing using Adobe Illustrator and this what came out after going to my friend for some acrylic laser cutting and bending.

    it was, because I wasn't able to make it clean and neat. (not balanced side panels, scratches, dent parts, etc) ^^ it was hard to do since I didn't use fiberglass, instead I used metal sheets

    Wow that's just beautiful.

    And the GPU shroud reminds me of the Asus cards of yesteryear..namely the Dual 7800GT..

    Aside from awesome craftsmanship, there's the fact that the photography is pretty damn good as well! + rep for sure.

    that is a truly sexy mod, even though I'm not such a fan of the Reventon.

    oh yeah sure!, i'll show you that till my next photoshoot^^

    me murdermod sleeves, haha i can't afford that^^. I'm from the Philippines, and usually shipping cost a lot more than the item itself. I just used the sleeves i bought from frozencpu. I was inspired by the murdermod sleeving style so I try to mimic that as much as I could^^
