Ok, i got few pics of progress and a question :D




The spoon will be simmilar to this but i will str18 it a bit, add some mesh on top, make it more robust with stirofoam and such... it will look really good with suspensions and all painted ;) trust me, i have it in my head!!!

Also there is a question regarding these two pictures below




Should i make mud protector on the 2nd pic, or should i leave it like it is on the 1st?
Please post coments on what you think i should do and what you like/dislike on it...

Tnx, Bax!

I know most of you will criticize my choice to go for wood instead of alu but i had my own good reasons :)

Also as you can see, my suspensions came and i am super happy about it :) Deatails almost complete and i hope that tomorrow i will finish complete body and start painting it hehe

I've got some stuff inside of the case just to check how everything fits and looks in the cabin :D












I hope you like the overall look inside the cabin :) its a bit tight but I like it like that :) only main ssd's will be inside the cabin, hard drives will go under the entire thing, and under that, radiators, pumps etc :D

Its nearing the end and the start of painting :) i cant show you enough how that makes me feel :D

Also a small adition to everything :) i fixed my speakers that i will be using and i will be also replacing the monitor with 40" 4k display :D

A few more days left, I will finish the mod before August :D

As i didnt want to post pictures that make no sence, posting pictures where only i could see the difference, i waited a bit and once i had done things i deem'd made a change, i made a little walktrough around what i have done and around the case...
The video is a bit on the longer side, and i got a bit confused with terminology i would be thrilled if you'd watch it :)


I will grab some batteries for my camera and that is one of the reasons i used camcorder now, and i will take some nice closeups tomorrow, also i will most likely put primer on the drawer piece :)

Also, question for moderators... What kind of an imrovement would be if i chose Dominator vs Vengance, but i wouldnt get it OC'd much as i'd love lower latency > higher clock...

UPDATE!!!, still not painting :( ran in to some work related issues :P but still sort of big update :)

1) The "Nose job":









2) FINALLY! Fan mount...







3) Polyester filler :


Hole for 24-pin done old fashion little plate style with |-type screws :D





It still needs sanding before painting, i corrected the edges and everything on the bodywork of the core part, i got fittings, and i did a hole for 24-pin

Here is one long overdue update.. bodywork is taking much longer than i anticipated

I ended up saving me the trouble with doors that open like this.. so the original idea --- to the water







Made my life allot easier when it came to cooling :D fans can now be securely mounted to the side pannel XD





Also, now everything seems to fit perfectly >.>



And some finishing bodywork, tiny air bubbles gave me allot of problems after sanding...




In the end it was worth it... Just perfect :D





Also, one more idea that took me, Idiot, almost entire day and it was complete bust!





Also, i figured that if i paint over the dry body kit, it will give it a bit of strength so i ended up doing that and it made my life easier, I paint it when i am done, and than, when i am back from work tomorrow its nice and solid, doing this saved me from allot of scratches :D



The back fan mounted ( the one that cools the back of the socket ), i must add that when i did measurements for the cuts, i wanted to make it octagonal, i kind of dig the lines.. i think i will pinstripe them on it... Also the fan is mounted to the plate, that is than mounted to the case...









Checking if the cables fit the hole i made, it will be awesome when i put the sleeved cables there with cable combs there :D






There, I hope you guys like the progress i made, i will take liberty to say that it the case as a case should be done in a week, and the water cooling components and components should be fixed inside few weeks after that total...

Been a while since i posted, and loads of things happened since than :)

Enjoy the slideshow XD

Top part still needs some minor adjustments, it now opens quite nicely with some support from suspensions :)







I dont know about you, but it looks more massive than it used to :)

Next in line is the finished front piece remaster!







next, experimenting with paint/foils :D




Here you can see how the roof holds with suspensions when open :)

And the last, i really think you will like it, 95% finished product XD







Bare in mind that the foil didnt set as it should have, and i will re-do it, the glue needs to be heated and i didnt have good dust free chamber, i redid it and the finished pictures will be out soon, only thing left for me to do now is fill it with components :), loads of little details finished as well, this is just a preview! Finished pics will come out when i have it all working!

So i have been doing what seems to be the biggest problem... how to make roof and still look sharp :)
i think this will be ok, and not make the roof stand off too much, the roof consists out of board and a U profile, the sides will go on the inside of a U profile, and also it will house a led strip that will illuminate interior, now, should i put yellow or red that is still something to decide.





This is another problem i have had. The waterblock came w/o a backplate, and i love backplates, keeps the board from bending and gives it stiffness, so i drilled the holes in my existing backplate to widen the screw holes that were there so the screws for my waterblock could go trough. it works, now i will need to reinstall it :)



till the next time, feel free to comment, good/bad, its all cool :)

Dry fitting the pipes to the current look, there will be another pipe that will go on the other side of the 24 pin that will go from GPU to res, but will go under than it will come back up, to res :)






I hope you like the progress so far, as i was unable to work on it for good few months due to some problems i have had :/
