    07/11/2005 Update... Finished for real this time.
    The longer it sits here the more ideas I get... but enough is enough and it is now good and finished. I swapped in a Geforce 6200 for the Radeon 9250 and also replaced the broken slim line cdrw/dvd drive. Here he is hooked up to my monitor, sitting next to the mod it looks smaller than 21". It is hard to capture the lighting and effects on camera as good as they look in person...

    Looking through the belly window you can see the GPU block and nothbridge chipset block, all the tubing was spring covered (21 springs). The following picture shows the CPU water block and connections... not shown is the HDD water cooling block as it resides beneath the removable motherboard tray.

    The areas around the arms were difficult to make fit together let alone make look good, but they do.

    I had to make a trap door in the arm to access the power and volume buttons for the speakers as well as the headphone plug

    A cut piece of a milk jug, leather scraps, velcro and liquid electrical tape make for a pretty spiffy door.

    It is a shame when an awsome mod gets flamed by a...well a nobody.

    Keep up the good work Troy. I look forward to seeing this beast in person and quakecon. I am sure it is even more impressive "in the flesh" so to speak.

    Do you have any pets or children? I bet that would scare the hell outta 'em. Looks good though, I'm a little scared.

    08/06/2005 Update... OK, I finally hear the song of the fat lady... done.

    Well, good enough never is and the "mod it til it bleeds" mentality made me mod more. I now have a modded two wheel hand truck to make transporting the mod easier, and the finishing touch to round out the mod... a custom mousepad. I had a broken puzzle box that was crying to become something, so I sanded all the sides of each piece of the box to the edge of the pattern and lined them up. Together the six pieces were not quite large enough to provide a decent mousing surface so I decided to use plexi glass to fill in the rest of the mouse pad and black Krylon fusion (I was out of vinyl dye) to make it all match up.

    [​IMG]

    I like to use folded paper to help me get a center line and measure stuff out, paper also makes for good templates once everything is measured. After I got the size of the mousepad figured out I used a soda cap and a small plate to add the needed curves onto the piece of paper and then cut out a template.

    [​IMG]

    If you are a serious modder and don't own a plexi cutter you need to update your mod toolbox, I cut a piece of plexi big enough for the wrist rest section and also a piece for the base.

    [​IMG]

    Leap of faith time (as Sheldog23 would say) no pictures of the next couple steps. I used a Dremel with a ripsaw blade to cut everything to shape, glued it all down, then filed and sanded everything to fit. I rough sanded then sprayed the black Krylon Fusion onto the wrist rest section and also the back of the mouse pad. I added some non slip black crap to the back of it and this mod is DONE. Below is the finished product.

    [​IMG]

    If you are wondering if an optical mouse will track on the surface of the puzzle box mousepad the answer is yes, it works surprisingly well with my Logitech MX510.

    Thanks Tech-Daddy, I did not even realize that Corsair had posted it. Hitting the stage at QuakeCon would be awesome, but if not it will still be great to game for four days and exchange ideas with other kick ass modders, I look forward to meeting you there.
