    Hi,

    When I saw the Blackmesa I wanted to make my case like it. But today I prefer to start more simple than this case. It's my first mod, so my objectives are simple. I want to do a clean case (if it possible :D ) and I want to find it cool.

    First the electronic part, I never brazed something, and my material is not, how to say ... Look at the photos ;) I wanted to do a little case in aluminium, with 5 swiches for the 5V-12V.

    My case ;)

    Ok let's cut and braze !

    My IDE cabel, nobody in France like it :waah:

    My workplace :

    It's finished !

    Ok today I made box to range my cables, it's inspired by piloux, I started with this :

    I put tho cabels because it will be Molex cables in the box.

    After a paint (with Boltgun Metal ;) and black Ink) :

    Equally for my fan :

    That's all for today, what do you think about it ?

    Sorry for my english, it sucks ...

    Ok, for today I have cutted my ancient radiator for my graphic card (waiting for hl² ;)). It's in aluminium, to cut it I use a hacksaw. I paint the 8 blocks with undercoat (Games Wokrshop :D), because it reacts with my UV neon (photo tonight ;)). The based are polished with P600.

    [​IMG]

    We don't see the white paint, it's my camera :(
    [​IMG]

    The base polished

    Well, I take two photos but the result is bad, my camera doesn't want to see, it's bad, look at this :

    No reaction ? :waah:

    I am sure the paint will have a slight effect but nothing major. As long as the coat of paint is one thin coat there should be no adverse effects.

    I think too, there isn't a lot of paint on the blocks, and only on the exterior faces, so it's cool. But I don't like the UV effect, I will paint the blocks with fluo, orange, yellow or green I don't know.

    Is that paint you're using to create the glow primered before it's applied? You'll find that priming whatever you're going to paint, will adhere the paint much better.

    As he said, he did this using a stabilo. As far as I know it's a pen with UV active ink (stabilo boss). My guess is you should have used real UV active paint for this. The pens really come in handy for doing the lines on your motherboard, graphics card, etcetera. :)
