    I always love a custom reservoir, and the plexi stripes look amazing :)

    @B[x] ..... yeah i know what you mean...it looks like cream.....but it smells like hell so i don´t want to taste it :D

    @darkened we also thought of this other foam....but it´s harder to get so we decided to use this one instead....for our purposes their is no really difference

    in the last days we put on the first layer of bondo

    then we drilled all holes in the water reservoir and make them perfect for use with G1/4" waterplugs

    [​IMG]

    and we decided where we´re going to mount the SD Card Reader....

    today we just build a few water reservoirs...:D

    a good friends was in need of a new reservoir, because his old was cracked in the middle and he couldn´t use it anymore....
    so we built him a new one out of some plexi pipe.....beside the rez for our friend....we also prepared a few for us and finished the first one

    It's going to very interesting to see what the final design of this case will be, looks promising already. I love the u-channel grilles! That res looks sweet... makes me want to sit in the sun and drink drinks with a curly straw. =)

    thanks a lot guys!! :D:thumb::rock:

    yesterday we have started to cut out the lower sidepanels so that they fit on the frame without getting in touch with the optical drives....
    so we made a fast sketch of the cutout....

    [​IMG]


    .... and then started to cut it out

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    after that we started to finish the main reservoir, therefore we drilled some big holes with the same dia the inner pipe has and put everything in place so that we can glue it together step by step....

    Thank you guys!

    today we used the pre cutted wood parts and build a small framework out of it....it will be placed under the case so that the radiator on the bottom can catch enough fresh air....

    beside that we glued the water reservoir together and made a small test if everything stays dry :D:thumb:

    In the last couple of days we´re working on the PSU....after we test installed it, we wasn´t happy to see that there is not much room between the water reservoir and the PSU....

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    so we thought why not put the PSU half outside of the case half inside....
    therefore we made a bigger Cutout then the Standard PSU Cutout...so that the PSU can now be moved through the hole .....

    after that we needed a new mounting for our PSU, so we did a little bit recycling and reused the parts we cutted out from the side panels. We cutted them in shape and bend some 90° Angles out of it....they are screwed to the mainframe of the case....
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    then we bended some alloy stripes in a U-Shape so that we can attach them to the PSU and the 90° angles we already attached to the cage.....

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    as next we´re going to finish the new PSU mounting and then we want to start the building process of the opening mechanism for the lower sidepanels.....

    like i promised we started the building process of the sidepanel opening mechanism.....

    [​IMG]

    then we attached the first parts to the case...

    [​IMG]

    ...just to see where we have to make the next cuts....so that the sidepanel can be opened completely

    thanks a lot guys!!!

    in the last days we were busy on planning another gimmick we want to place inside the front.....

    therefore we made a rectangle hole inside the backside of the front....inside the hole we want to mount a small webcam....

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]


    then we quick draw on the otherside....
    [​IMG]

    and put on a bit more bondo....
    [​IMG]


    and we cutted the raw video material we shooted up to now....so here are the first 2 parts of the video worklog....:clap::clap:

    @xQlusive thanks a lot! and i promise!!! in the next vid there will be better music!!!:thumb::D:rock:

    in the last days we made some progress on the Holder for the Water Reservoir...

    at first we bended the 2 Plexi Holders for the rez into a 90° angle

    [​IMG]

    then we drill out some plexi circles....

    [​IMG]
    and cutted them into 2 halfs
    [​IMG]
    .......at least we drilled 3 holes in all of them......then we put 3 plexi rods through the half circles so that we got an element which will be placed between the bended Plexi Holders for the rez....
