Am really impressed with the level of detail on the epoxy work
Crazy skill and perfect execution man, love what you are doing!
thanks guys, I really appreciate so don't stop to post : any comments are welcome
I'll try to post in the day some pictures of my new prolimatech's fans
see you soon !!
Quoted for truth! Very nice how the new parts aren't noticable at all, keep it up!
This is too good! I'll sure be following this mod!!
Hi everybody !! It's Christmas !!! I wish you plenty of gifts and a lot of food !!
It's also the time for a little update !!
UPdate !! Fans received !!
(warning, it's not snow on the box )
We start the unboxing with the Ultra Sleek Vortex 12 (aka: [#0000FF]USV12[/#0000FF] )
and then little shooting of the big brother, the [#0000FF]USV14[/#0000FF]
As I have unboxing this fans, I can tell you that the quality is really impressive, and the look will fit so perfectly with my project !!
The next update will probably be on the integration of these USV14 on the front of the case, this work take me a lot of time
What you did w/ that front panel is mind blowing.
Top quality work there fella!
Damn... that seemless incorporation of your custom made parts is mind blowing man!!
Looking forward to the rest!! Subbed!
The work on that front panel is amazing.
Hello guys, thanks a lot for yours kind comments,
It's time for a little :
UPdate !! This is how I fix the USV14 fans on the front of the case
I decided to reuse the existants holes :
je suis parti d'une plaque de plexi de 50x25cm que j'ai recoupé sur la largeur
after, I need to cut the place for the frontpanel
and I bended the other side
to fix this plate, I use some M4 screws
when the plate is inside the case
then, the cuts for the 2 fans
and this is the finished part !
with fans mounted
and, again some pictures inside the case
That's all for the front of the case !!
Next update, will probably be on the ingregation of the PSU or the MB tray !
Ah dude! Very nice! Love the project so far!

Stunning work. Just, stunning. I absolutely love working with acrylic now it's one of my favourite pastimes.
I remember the days where all you had was perspex and it used to shatter and crack all the time /mumble grumble aspirin and piss.
Are you going to paint the fans silver or grey?
Wow! Very nice!
A humble suggestion: The ultra sleek fans are a real beauty and I think they deserve more pictures, just twenty or thirty more to begin (Hint: also some with sandy beach, palm trees and gals on the background will be a marvel. Sweating gals better...)
You're like the master of jigsaw. Seriously, how do you make your sawing look so clean? Whenever I use my jigsaw it results in marvelous cracks, dents and scratches despite of any taken measures against such and regardless of used material. Aaargh. Good work, man.
Thanks for your kinds words, I know perfectly what you say about cracking !!
It's a good idea to paint the fans in silver, I hadn't thought of. So Maybe !
and thanks a lot too !!
when I use my jigsaw, I use a little speed (I have 6 differents speed, and I use the number 2) and my blade is small to let me do the curve as well as I can.
The latest pictures don't show the result just after the jigsaw's cuts, after all the cuts needs to be sand (P80-120-240-500)
See you soon !!
Hi here !
Just a short message to talk about The Laser Hive, a company of laser cutting who create for example some kit to integrate motherboards inside Powermac cases (G4, G5, etc !)
David Chugg is a passionnate too of PowerMac 'cases modifications, and he spend a lot of time to help me realise my idea for this project.
It's time for an Update !!
This is how I mount inside the case my PSU Seasonic P-760 Hybrid
Here too, I started thinking on this part first on AutoCAD to have a little idea of where I'm going !
and the last one
then some cuts
to finally get this part
I also cut a little an aluminum frame for my PSU to make it look like her big sisters
Once the psu is mounted on her support
and inside the case
That's it !
Hope you like it and please feel free to comment !
just another one picture with the PSU, fans and HDD rack mounted to check
see you soon !
