    Update 17 – The backplate @ Friday the 29th Mach 2007.

    Intro
    Now the backplate is milled. It’s looking even better in real life than on the pictures, så I’m happy ;)
    I’ll polish the PSU, because I think it’ll be a good contrast to the black and orange.
    But I’m really tied, so I wont commentate the pictures, just let them talk ;)

    The funny part

    This is turning out to be one very heavy case. Very nice work, thus far.

    Nice ! The original case looks a lot like a ancient aptiva. Maybe with a laptop dvd burner hooked to a JAE-IDE converter, you could avoid the semi external PSU.

    Godly modding to you.

    Update 19 – Different stuff ;) @ Thursday the 5th April 2007.

    Intro
    Some more work done :D
    When I have some more time for modding, I’ll mill the waterblock for the peltierlement, cause I want to see how it’ll look with the outside tubing ;)

    But lets take a look.

    The funny part

    [​IMG]
    The first thing to do today was to drill holes.

    [​IMG]
    Yep, to make the plate fit on those :)

    [​IMG]
    Now that’s good.

    [​IMG]
    So..

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    And the two parts glued together.

    [​IMG]
    Now it’s only the holes that’s left.

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    Thos screws will hold the bars for the psu.

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    It does just fit perfect ;)

    The next few pictures is how NLM looks right now ;) Enjoy.

    Next thing to do was to fit the fridge into the case.

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    Cool.

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    And then I installed the LCD screen.

    [​IMG]
    Not much space, but it’s good enough ;)

    [​IMG]
    And a little teaser from the sleeving, I’ll show more later.


    Cya!

    My only critique, why not use screws that will sit flush or even a bit of a "button" look?

    Personally, while the Hex type screws are very functional, I feel that they ruin the other wise "minimalistic" and smooth look of this case.

    Other than that, it looks fantastic! :rock:

    I want a mill :waah:

    I gotta agree. This project is so clean. I normally like the hex screws (I use them on my rack-mount stereo), but here, I think they detract.

    Keep on modding! It's really looking great!
