Hi all!!! ok ive been planning this project for about a month or two now. one thing i have always wanted was a test bench style pc, as i love to swap out hardware and lets be honest cases can be a damn pain sometimes. so while i was looking at some amazing lookin benches from dimastech i thought...i can do that really! so i have gone about on the planning off this. inspiration comes in many forms...firstly my love of the resident evil series... so a few t virus strains will no doubt pop up here and there... and water cooling, i want to utilise something that is really quick at swapping out.. ok a few sketch up ideas... as you can see the whole motherboard and it i/o ports are contained inside the glas cassing. i will be making a part on the side which will plug into these and will be wired to the case side......alot off work i know but worth it all the same.. most off the case will be made out off aluminium to keep it as light as poss and have 3 seperate cooling loops this project will not be a quick fix done in a few weeks job, after costing i think its a good 9month job but it will be updated whenever something new happen to it! i will transfer all off this over to work logs next month when materials have been bought. Hardware wise i will most likely be using all my current equipment so thats asus P5e, 4 gb ozc reaper, intel e8200 (might up it q6600?) water equipment will be bought around what type of graphics i can pick up... and im hoping to use the koolance quick disconects to make life simple for swapping out hardware in the future.. the helix or t-virus if you will im most likely going to be using uv tinted plexi rod.... will be making custom resevoirs to but havent decided on the style off these as yet. and now for a quick render! the side panels will all be quick release style to allow access in the double layer in side... bottom is for power and rads, pumps etc while the middle will be hdd sliding tray and dvd. this is where most off the wires will be also which i intend to hide in small boxed trunking. With the side panels im hoping to find a really good airbrush artist who's willing to take on this momoth project as will be wanting a complete custom design with inspiration taken from the films and games of resident evil with this im also looking at placing a slide out, flip up keyboard and a 6-8inch moniter as well so can be used away from home. at events and displays like these http://images.maplin.co.uk/full/a56fb_with-hand.jpg http://www.flyonthewall.uk.com/erol.html?373x1525 as i said i will be purchasing materials in few weeks to get started and get this project really on the go.
