    love what you are doing with the build, dont like the ssd idea in its curren form though. it looks like is is just a pcb sandwitched between 2 acrylic plates(looks cheap). i would suggest to make a pocket in the acrylic plates so they close on the side. so that way it would become a custom ssd casing.

    Thanks Justin! Guess it's vice versa :thumb:

    Thanks a lot guys! :clap:


    Thanks! Sorry don't have a CNC in my shed lol.
    Actually need them to be open, the chip on the ssd was attached to the aluminum housing with a thermalpad. So being open it will have some cooling.

    Thanks man! Watch out for the UV addiction lol .. it got me :dremel:

    Visa Versa? :D My Latin is rusty, but wouldn't that be the sight upon turning or the other/changed sight? (see changed, I changed, depending on whether you're using video, videre, etc.) I don't think the tense is right anyway, but I'd need to ask someone who knew more.

    Vice versa is what you were after. :p

    And a small update for the weekend.

    [​IMG]


    Little check how the cables would look like.

    [​IMG]


    And bad news :/
    I won't be able to use the prototype ShroudRes, at this point it's just to much of a risk, hours and adjustments to get it working right. Will be using a ShroudRes in a next project though.
    But .. found a way to have more cooling and in the same style as the other rads.

    [​IMG]


    Because the mainboard is on the left side of the desk I don't have the space for an extra Admiral + fans.
    So came up with something else :)

    [​IMG]


    A 45mm radiator + fans in an Admiral housing :)

    [​IMG]


    Also the acrylic SSD covers arrived from ModWithMe.

    [​IMG]


    Removed the laser dust as good as possible.

    [​IMG]


    After messing around for an hour with different pipes, spacers and nuts in different sizes I found something else. Rubber fan mounts from TFC.

    [​IMG]


    I love Friday evenings.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]


    Slide em in.

    [​IMG]


    Works perfectly with the rubber corners :)

    And some UV light from different corners.

    Thanks ModWithMe!

    Somehow I like them a lot in daylight.
    Corsair Neutrylic GTX :)

    Looks absolutely gorgeous Peter! Great mod with the SSDs. I tried the full plexi replacement box myself but in no way it came out as good as this. Top notch!

    Those SSD's look so good, I can see those as something Corsair would release to market :)

    Here an update of a little side project already running for 9 months :)
    It's a pretty long story with a lot of photos but will try to keep it short.

    For this project I wanted something else then the standard fangrills.
    Did see the MNPC Overkill guards a few time, but when you need 2x 360 and 2x 480, that's like $600.

    So .. Scott Bruins (Red Harbinger designer) and I decided to have some fun.
    This is what he came up with (Scott's awesome! :) )

    [​IMG]


    This is what came out after a lot of tweaking.

    [​IMG]


    Few tests in front.

    [​IMG]


    And, what we thought, a final design. Back then still with a closed front. About 7 months ago.

    [​IMG]


    But .. you still need to know someone with a CNC who is willing to do it.
    Off course Ivo (The guy that CNC-ed the MARSII block) loved the idea joined us, he could use a few himself too.
    And he also happen to have some nice 120x10mm bricks of aluminum.
    First he had to edit the design again since the current one didn't fit the 120x10mm.

    [​IMG]


    But no problem.

    [​IMG]


    And we're on the way for 5 months :D

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]


    Again no problem.

    [​IMG]


    Ivo is pretty happy with them himself too.
    If you look carefully you can see a pretty weird GPU in his pc ;)

    [​IMG]


    Once at my place .. totally love them!

    [​IMG]


    First fit.

    [​IMG]


    Wanted to see them on the 'Raz3rator' too. Also added a small UV ledstrip.

    [​IMG]


    And quickly polished the 360
    Hmm ... all I need now is acrylic.

    [​IMG]


    ModWithMe still had a piece from my last order ... perfect fit!
    Now all I need is a nice design.

    [​IMG]


    I found this background online ... sold!
    So, brainstorming again

    Scott had it translated to solidworks in no-time.
    But before Sander was able to cut it the design had a long way to go.
    Design went from Scott > me > Ivo > me > Sander > Ivo > Sander > Scott > me/Sander before they would actually fit the edited design :D

    [​IMG]


    And so, 8 months later.
    It became a design with 2 layers.

    [​IMG]


    And this Saturday ..

    [​IMG]


    First a quick fit again :)

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]


    Very nice work Sander!
    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]


    Need to know how it would look on a radiator :)

    [​IMG]


    Frames still nice and rough.

    [​IMG]


    Lets change that first. (last night)

    [​IMG]


    And a little polishing.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]


    Perfect fit!

    [​IMG]


    And with just UV

    [​IMG]


    And black.

    [​IMG]


    Small amount of glue on the corners.

    [​IMG]


    I'm very happy with the end result.
    And ... I can always re-use them ... the acrylic is easy to replace for a different design/color.

    [​IMG]

    That's an awfully wasteful way to make those. :p Extruding and machining would probably waste less material, though you'd need to be making an awful lot of them to justify extruding.

    Aluminium 3D printers would be fun.

    Still, that's some sexy billet porn.

    Thanks man! Yep .. I love aluminum and acrylic :rock:

    Thanks from all of us :)

    We did look into a design so you can assemble them together with bolts.
    But when Ivo said he had some spare 120x10 ... why not :)
    Thanks Primum Agmen!

    Still the weirdest comment I read sometimes ..
    Lol thanks James :D
