gratz on the nomination bill.
Any info on temps for the graphics cards due to the location of the power supply?
That is something we will analyze when we get to the installation portion of this. But, I think it is safe to say there is a possibility that it will affect the GPU some. Fortunately, the case has great airflow in general, so it may not be that bad.
Congratulations on getting my vote.
Thanks for the votes everybody
Stay Tuned, this project has many more cool updates coming soon!
k, looking forward to it, I wasn't sure if you did a test install before the modding began.
I really doubt there's going to be a major difference in performance with the GPUs and the PSU oriented like that. The case is really friendly to airflow just by looking at the layout and specs, so I don't see there being any issues.
Kick some aysh, Bill!
Congratz on the nomination Bill, really is amazing work.
Love the theme. Nice project and good ideas.
This is a very nice mod indeed!
Congratulation on the Mod of the Month Nomination, you must feel proud
Needs MOAR updates!
Naw, he's used to that by now.
More updates on the way. We're painting the machined aluminum bullet thumbscrews to look more authentic.
The surface is first prepped, using red scotch brite pad to scuff the bare aluminum
Is that a "cribbage board" for thumbscrews?, drilling holes in a piece of wood, works great for holding thumbscrews for paint. The threads were taped off.
For maximum paint adhesion, we use SEM brand self etching primer for the base coat
A couple coats of grey self etching primer
Oh, sweet. That's cool, Bill. I take it you're going for a weathered bullet look?
I do something similar with screws being painted with the 'peg board holes'; it's cool seeing others doing it!
yeah they are cool thumbscrews... nice painting so far. and a great mod
Yes, and painting these is a must, it's all about those small details we all crave
Brad prefers to tape the bullet thumbscrews to paint stick
Paint entire bullet first copper color first, mask off the tip after cured, then paint the shell brass color.
O mai. naice!
Here are a few shots I took of the sound card that Creative Labs were kind enough to provide for this project. The styling of the cover on the card and breakout box is a perfect fit for this theme.
It is a Sound Blaster X-fi Titanium Fatal1ty Championship Series.
Fantastic idea with painting the thumbscrews, they will go perfectly.
LOL, even the Fatal1ty logo resembles the Wolfenstein theme!
I'll have the bullets posted today, I'll also have to get that Titanium from you sometime soon Nate.
