    Very nice, the use of scrap parts is wonderful and really fits well with the general theme of the project!

    OMG dat front :jawdrop:

    I'd like to congratulate you on meeting your brief amazingly well. This looks like something you would craft in Fallout 3.

    All it needs is a dart gun rested on the top :clap:

    Next "victim" will be a 20cm fan I gained from a swap with other smaller fans I had.

    sorry for the blurry picture I took 3 and for some reason it wouldn't focus

    [​IMG]

    now I told you that the PSU won't be modded,unfortunatelly I opened it for inspection after 4 years of use and found a capacitor about to fail (I'll fix it when I have time for a job like that),I bought a used one in mint condition,old model but used for about 6 months and then in storage for 4 years,so with no warranty I modded it.

    Wasteland sleeve,Junkyard sleeve,poor man's sleeve,all titles fit :D
    I used waxed string that found in the company I work,was used by the old timers for lacing the cables.
    Black duct tape the 2nd "ingredient "

    tight fit for the cables,there's almost no space to hide them,that was the best allowed to do.

    [​IMG]

    another problem I solved was the power socket orientation of the new PSU,need it to be inverted because of the custom cable,

    [​IMG]

    The first stage filtering of the psu was replaced with a right orientation one (pic shows the removed) that was found in a burnt corsair 650 psu.Unfortunately i forgot to take a picture but it wouldn't make any difference i think.

    My PC is up and running with great temps,room 28c,idle cpu 29,P95x64 load 38c,average on heavy gaming or use 33c.

    It's functionality is 95% finished,I have to do some minor changes and fine tuning it.
    Aesthetics aren't,some damage,weathering,rust will pop up!
    Next update will be some good pics in good light condition of the whole case without "damage".
