Hi Guys, Welkom to my first project here on bit-tech! As you can read above my project is called Radical Fusion, the cases i'm going to use are 2 CM Stackers (STC-01) they are going to house my current system (that will be converted to surfing & file storage) and a new gaming system. The mod is going to get a industrial feel to it so the main color will be black (matt) and it's going to get some features like a keypad and a "ignition" key. I'll just do a little fast forward with some photo's and explanation to point were i'm now cause you have to show some modding in your first post, the first pictures are a little bit low quality but they will be better as you can see further below. Also all suggestions and comments are welcome The design A part of the sketchup model i'm working on: Don't mind the colors, all that black made it confusing The hardware System 1 (gaming) MOBO: Asus... CPU: AMD... GPU: Asus... in SLI RAM: Corsair... HDD 1: WD 36gb Raptor (os) HDD 2: WD 74gb Raptor (programs) System 2 (file storage and surfing) MOBO: Asus A8N32-SLI Deluxe CPU: AMD 4800 X2 GPU: Asus EAX1800XT 512mb RAM: Corsair TWINX1024-3200XLPRO HDD 1: WD 36gb Raptor (os) HDD 2: Maxtor 160gb (programs) (will be replaced later on by a raptor) HDD 3+4: 2x WD 500gb in raid 1 (file storage) This is one of the stackers fresh out of the box: Nothing special just waiting for some action. A first mockup: Just simple cardboard gives a nice idea how it's going to look before any real modding, and also the huge stacker box got a new life. And here are they stacked for testing: They don't sit as flat on each other as they are going to be but this was just a test, so there are still some rivets that will be drilled out. One case took apart being rebuild on the other to get it completely flush: Rebuild and as you can see no gap between As seen on the panel at first the project was going to be called Red Fusion (and it would have been one stacker) but the design of the letters is going to be used again. I'll leave the cases alone for now, after i recieved the second PSU for this mod (Realpower 850W) I switched it with the one in my current rig for testing and so i could start modding the first PSU. Some of the photo's below are made in a lightbox that i'll be using for the rest of the mod for the smaller parts. It's a Realpower 550W a good PSU that has done it's job well in my current rig: The Watt meter is a real nice feature the will return. Took it apart to the bare chasis: The strange holes in the back are from the first time it got modded but those will be covered up. Also i got the Watt meter out of it's casing: Ready to recieve a green LED instead of the standard blue one: These boxes are going to be used for the wiring: All of them taped up for easy marking. But offcourse the one i needed now couldn't be taped complete because i ran out of it The first cut for the hole were the wiring will pass through from out of the PSU. And the second hole that will house the Watt meter: After some filing it looked like this: Meter back in place: Sitting really snug so no glue or anything needed to hold it in place. Replaced the blue LED fan for a much quieter Papst fan, also the stickers of the fan were removed, the black grill replaced with a chrome one and some nice hexhead bolts: Here put together for a overall look the chrome hexheads will probably be replaced with with the same kind as used on the grill. So that was the first part off the mod the PSU unit is going to be painted and and the wiring has to be resolderd and sleeved but first i have to see wich wiring is going to be needed and how long they have to be. Later this day i will post another (small) update because some components arrived today. Regards, Bas van der Werff.
