    While I wait on parts for my Epic A380 case I am designing a case for my younger brothers PC and I want to do an industrial, PowerMac G5 style case. I want to keep it relatively simple. The PSU already has blue LED fans so I am planning on either black and blue or silver aluminum and blue. These are just some concept designs so any and all feedback is appreciated!


    1st concept

    I prefer second one personally, only because im not a lover of garish fans in the front of cases. I do like the hex mesh but just not with all the fans.

    as for an anti mac logo how about an apple with 'bites' from both sides so you only have the core?

    Cool design! I also like the 2nd one, with the 3rd right after. If you are going for maximum cooling, I'd add the top from number 3, to 2.

    No optical drive? No front USB?

    Oh, and #2 all the way.

    i'd say the 2nd and the 3rd are the best. i don't think using mesh would be that good

    lol I like both of those logo ideas. Ill have to make some tomorrow.

    Thanks, I think you will like Rev 8

    The back?

    lol. I must stress that these are strictly concepts just to get a rough idea of what I want to go for. There will be USB ports as well as an optical drive. If I decide to do the mesh I will hide the front of the optical drive with the mesh so I didn't bother putting it in for the concepts.

    I the only PC guy in a family of mac users so I have to stand up for myself :D. I don't really have anything against apple users, I just prefer my PC. I LOVE the powermac G5 case that this is based off of.


    OK revised designs!

    Rev 5: Gear with bite logo
    [​IMG]

    Rev 6: Silver Aluminum, Circular mesh, 3D Gear logo with bite and small gear
    [​IMG]

    Rev 7: Brushed metal, Hex mesh front panel, Large top chamfer with screws
    [​IMG]

    Rev 8: Blue/silver with, 240 front grill

    Suggestions for color? logo?

    Try the 8th with hex mex on the front.

    I have another idea for your logo. Just use the Apple logo but use a hand grenade instead of an apple.

    First of all a BIG thank you to Bill Owen, helping me out with this Lian-Li PC7 plus chassis and one of his awesome 3x120 fan grill. I love these grills and the quality is fantastic! This also helps me a lot in that I don't have to buy a whole case just to use the chassis. Now I begin the process of measuring and transferring the chassis into solidworks to begin the final planning. Oh and we got a 3d printer at work so I had to test it out!

    Thanks for looking! It might be a while before I make some physical progress but having a full, accurate model in solidworks will help me a lot.

    Let me know what you think!


    Once again Big Thanks to Bill of MNPCTECH

    I have to say, those renders look so good, it seems superfluous to make the case. :hehe::lol:

    But I have to, I can't let Jobs WIN! :hehe:

    Some one found this online and Im thinking of adopting it as the Ant-Mac Logo. What do you think? I could use a little photoshop help making an outline if anyone is willing?
