    I don't think there is any word in the english language that can express how utterly awesome that is, so I'll leave it at that :p

    Go knock 'em dead at the modding contests :thumb:

    Hey... glad to see you used my version of the warning label. I did that pretty quick so it could have been a little better, but I wasn't sure if you would use it. Now I can say I contributed to a ZAPWIZARD project!!!!!!!!!!:rock: Anyways, does it look convincing in real life?

    Great job:clap:

    Very very nice zap and thats an undersatment.

    a suggestion tho. Couldnt you have attached all of the other parts to the facsia, so when you yank on the fascia all of the computer slides out?

    My brain came pre-overclocked.
    Really I have no idea, I just look at a piece of hardware and ideas come to me.
    (I also would like to take this time to say that I don't do drug, smoke, drink, or even take strong medications, I keep healthy to keep my head clear)

    The logo looks great in my opinion.
    The printer I printed it with has 2400 DPI, and the image is very sharp even under close view.
    And the orange is bright and stands out a lot.
    It really looks totaly authentic.
    Some people who see this project, (unfourtunently) think that most of the stuff came that way, or that I didn't mod it on my own.

    No, as the case is slimmer in the middle as it is on the outside.
    (Look at the inside shots on the first page)
    So the DVD and power supply prevent the case from being able to be removed out the front.

    Sweet jesus it's case-mod art! :rock:

    :jawdrop: I still can't believe you got to that level of complete-ness without any sort of ripping apart the insides of the case.

    Now, my man, temps? How stable is it during benchmarking and burn-in and stuff?

    Absolutely stunning mod Zap, been following this from when I first heard about it on the bit IRC channel. Unfortunately I have to say I think the look of the desktop is pretty awful IMHO.

    Top notch mods though :thumb:

    Zapwizard, are we ever going to see the Nightvision gogs case housing the monitor and cd's and such, 'cuz I was really wanting to see how you were going to implement that.

    uso now were just waiting for the redo of the text on the outside, and the NVG case for the monitor and accesories.

    Very nice, it would be very hard to top that, congrats Zap.

    Hard drives will run at any orientation you deicde to put them at. Only the very old ones liked to be upright.

    Now Zap, you can finish the Media PC :p

    I did have to rip apart quite a bit of the insides of the doors to make it all fit.
    But not any of the actual insides.

    The system is rock solid stable, running a Athlon XP 2700+ at 333mhz FSB.
    MBM shows the CPU at 172F (78C) and the NB at 136F (58C)
    That is after running 3D Mark 2001
    It's a Radeon 9200 so the benchmarks a pretty low, I will do some tweaking to get more out of it.
    But this isn't an overclocking PC, but a rugged portable computer.

    The air flow seems to work very well, and the case stays as cool as most normal PC's
    Also remember this is Texas, so the Ambient is around 75F (24C)

    The harddrive has no problem running at an angle.
    The harddrive is dead silent, but that doesn't matter the PC has 9 fans so it's not exactly quiet. (But it's not a vacuum either)

    In all reality the drive is only inches away from 8 very powerful magnets.
    But modern harddrives are not effected by magnets and angle nearly as much as they once were
    It's also my only choice, unless I use a laptop harddrive, but I don't need to dump any more money into this, and the current drive fits just fine.

    Well the desktop is just something I put together in a few minutes using existing skins.
    I will make my own as I get time later.
    But really the desktop won't be shown much at the LAN parties, I will either be gaming, or showing my website while explaining how I made the PC.

    Well the LCD will be the deciding factor on that.
    It's costs $300, and I got about four more projects before the end of the year to complete, so it will have to wait.
    (Paypal donations accepted to: zapwiz@NOSPAMnettaxi.com (Remove the NO SPAM)

    I will probably change the text later.
    But right now it really keeps the project authenic.
    Most people don't really read it, they are usually staring blindly into the green glow.

    The next projects in que:
    I hope to have them all done by the end of the year.

    -Build five new lightsabers for my four nephews, and one for me. (For Halloween, check my website for details)
    -Finish the Media PC (All hardware and case completed, software will wait)
    -Build the lighted chess set

    Projects I am already planning for next year?

    -Finish the LCD for the LAN PC before the next summer CPL
    -Re-build my main PC with desk integration, water cooling, and any other cool stuff I can think of.
    -Come up with even more totaly orignal advanced computer mods for you guys to google over :D
