    It was a 3/32"=1foot scale model of this building:

    Kind of interesting..,but not really. I'll put some pics of it just for fun. The next project though, is a huge house right along the ocean with an unlimited budget :D

    I've been working quite a bit on this project recently and its finnally coming along quite nicely. I've been doing mostly aluminum but also some plexi/paper too and lots of designing, so here goes:

    As usual, i have a new workspace... in my bedroom:
    [​IMG]

    I have to give a special thanks to Dutchcedar for helping me out with the aluminum. He gave me some much needed advice on which tap to use and what to do. He also showed me the way of Mcmaster-Carr. Here is some stuff i got from them:
    [​IMG]

    That tap cost me 15 bucks but Dutchcedar compared it to a Fine Dozuki saw so i had to get it. Here it is at work:

    [​IMG]

    I assume most of you know how to drill holes so i didn't get too many pictures of the drilling, just pictures of what the parts look like after they're done.

    First was attaching two 3/8inch by 1/2in bars to the main side panel:
    [​IMG]

    Test fitting the middle floor panel:
    [​IMG]

    Next step was to attach the front and back panels:
    [​IMG]

    Oh, btw, all of the screws are 8-32 flat head socket screws and they look like this when countersunk:
    [​IMG]

    The back:
    [​IMG]

    With both panels:
    [​IMG]

    Does the wood fit over the alu still? Yes it does :rock:
    [​IMG]

    Then came more supports for the middle floor panel. This also helps support the bottom panel:
    [​IMG]

    With them both installed and countersunk:
    [​IMG]

    Then the top:
    [​IMG]

    This is what i'm working on now:
    [​IMG]

    My tripple core radiator and 70 bucks worth of fans come tomorrow so i can get the shroud started then.

    I also did some plexi/paper stuff with the top panel:

    First i cut out the plexi... It fits, woo.
    [​IMG]
    This is the same plexi that is a joy to work with that i got from delviesplastics. I'm not sponsored by them, i'm just really happy i don't have to work with crap plastic that melts.

    then i needed a hole for a top exhaust fan:
    [​IMG]

    After sanding:
    [​IMG]

    I still can't decide weather i'm using a 120mm or 92mm fan here. the 92mm is about the size of the whole but the 120mm is huge. this is with a 120mm fan:
    [​IMG]

    And with paper:
    [​IMG]

    I need to glue the paper on in order to fit properly but i still have more work to do on the top before i can do that but here is a sneak peak of what it will look like.
    [​IMG]

    Thats it for now. I'm spec-ing out my hardware though and for my psu, i'm probly going for a Silverstone strider 750w, any thoughts on this?

    Stay tuned.

    Hey guys, since you're asking, i'll just post my whole prize list.

    For the case mod contest, i won an IZ3D Monitor, retails at 1300 bucks, this thing:
    http://www.iz3d.com/

    For the first raffle, i won a G15 keyboard and a G7 mouse by logitech.

    For the second raffle, i won a set of Logitech Z 5450 speakers, a G5 mouse, 600w Cooler master psu and a Danger den watercooling kit.

    Pretty much, i won everything that i didn't really need (besides the keyboard, speakers, and one of the mice) so i still get to buy all of the components.

    If anyone is interested in the monitor, pm me and we'll talk about it.

    Stay tuned

    Really nice work. If you need an advice, go with the 120mm fan, but maybe paint it :)

    some good progress there mate. looks great!

    i'd go with a 92mm fan. whilst it would be easier to say yeah 120 will be quieter, for the hole size you have there you want to be efficient with the fan. the outer edge of a fan blade is where the most air is moved, so you want it to be able to move air. Stick with a 92mm and get the best bang for your buck.

    if you still wanted to use the 120, you would just need to make a shroud. basically the same thing as those 120~92/80 mm adapters..

    fan's are cheap though, you may as well get the 92mm :rolleyes:

    Thank you very much guys.

    For your viewing pleasure, i have a small after thanksgiving update.

    Before i left, i got a few goodies:
    [​IMG]
    I got more fans than actually, they're just not in the picture.

    When i went to put everything together though, that darn fans didn't fit since apparently they're a little bigger than normal fans. No worries though, i bought that aluminum blade a while back and i intend to utilize it.

    The fans getting ready for surgery:
    [​IMG]

    It cuts pretty nice for 25mm aluminum:
    [​IMG]

    They fit!:
    [​IMG]

    Thats it for now. I'll be doing a lot of alu cutting while i'm home and things should start picking up in a few days. stay tuned

    make sure you put a shroud in there so you aren't getting a pressure drop as opposed to having the fans flush against the rad ;)

    why, what a large radiator you have there :hehe:
