My first post didn't seem "meaty" enough for my taste, so I decided to throw more stuff on here. Maybe this will give a better picture.
We revisited our right hand door design, and didn't like it. So we re-cut it.
Then I went on to put Plexi in it, then moved into the making of the 1 3/4 extension on lower half. I put in the CD-Rom so you can see wher eit will be placed, facing the front of the case, vertical.
As you see,, I started on the housing also. I have something VERY cool in mind for that.
Then while the glue was drying I started on the top. Let me know what you think about this. I really like it.
YEAH MADE IN USA!
This next one is just a mock up. It's not in place and I have to go get the M8 bolts I want for it in chrome tomorrow. All the bolts will be M8's
So, as I said, small update.
See you guys soon!
Well here we go, I may have to put this into 2 threads. First I wanted to show you just how beautiful EKWB products are. And what makes them even more impressive is how GOOD they are. I am very lucky to have a sponsor like EKWB. So without further a due.
Keep in mind that everything I am listing today is only for the video cards. The CPU loop will come at a later date.
This is everything in a nut shell.
3x 6950/70 Water blocks... now I have to find video cards for them lol. These are going to look absolutely beautiful with Mahems Dye in it.
VERY thick 360 radiator. This is just for the 3 video cards.
Check out this giant Reservoir.
This thing just barely fits inside the case. Just how I wanted it.
EK-DCP 4.0 is the pump in the picture. This thing is plenty to push the liquid all through those cards. I'm not sure there is one more powerful. And then we have a ton of fittings to hook it all up. This should be good.
Ok, now back to the mod. We have gotten a lot done, were pretty happy.
Look at our little friend-
He's just at home with Thermaltake. He is just a teaser, you'll see soon what we do with him.
We finally got the 7 inch LCD in, this shouls where we're putting it, but it's not in yet.
We managed to get the sliders on the right door today. I'm totally stoked about this. Looks great.
It opens 100% to the top.
With the body putty drying, I moved on to the front, cut out the little squares. I'll be putting blue plexy in.
I managed to squeeze in cutting the rest of the aluminum to be put on the front of the case also.
I also got the right door panel made, this is the housing that will hold the DVD recorder and the 200MM fan
Welp, this should be enough for today guys. I hope the forums will accept so many pictures.
I'll have substantially more in a couple days, so stay tuned.
Big thanks to mnpctech for their sponsorship. They sent us some fantastic stuff I want to show you.
First off, check out this fan. I just HAD to have one!
it's just awesome, and completely matches our mod. Wait till you see where we put it.
Nest, I always wanted a professional tool for sleeving cables. It was just one of those small purchases that I never remembered to make. Thanks to Bill I now have a set! They are smaller than they look, but very solid quality. I am not afraid at all of breaking these.
And lastly, I asked for some U-Molding. I have a lot of cuts in this case I would feel better covering for safety. This stuff is very small, perfect. It does not stand out like a sore thumb.
Thanks again Bill, we owe you one.
Now, as far as the mod. Believe it or not we have a LOT done. This mod is insane amount of work. Were working on packing all the stuff into this beast. The case is a bit smaller than I had hoped.
When I managed to get done today was the plexi mount for the 2 Kingston SSD's.
The center hole is for the light blue LED were putting in it. The SSD's will mount on top of the plexy, which in turn mounts on a piece of aluminum. And THAT then mounts on the side of the 5.25 bays, inside the case. You'll see soon. We can't start assembling until it's painted and we can't paint it until all the cuts are done. You know how it goes.
We also have the front ready for paint. That took some work. I hate to keep saying "wait and see" as I know the mod does not look very good so far. I really have not given you guys much to look at. But when it starts to come together, it will be done fast. It's the manufacturing of parts, mounts etc that's taking so long. So please, bear with me a bit.
Till next time...
Well, this update took longer than I anticipated. Using a new kind of paint, that requires a long drying time, but it's SUPER durable, almost as strong as powder coat.
Also, we have a new sponsor. Big thanks to Glenn and Quiet PC
They came to my rescue and provided me with the Aerocool Touch 2000 Controller, 7 Fans, and the Blu-Ray player we're putting in the mod. Should see these in soon.
So, as I said, the case is painted. Well, just the metal. Still modding the plastic parts at the moment.
I got the EKWB radiator finished and mounted in the case. I love this radiator. Huge and very well built. Should cool 3 video cards just fine.
I polished the sides of the radiator so it would match the aluminum throughout the mod. Seems to match perfectly.
Now you can see the square hole on the right side. That will be housing the Blu-Ray player. I am exposing the inside of the player, showing the disc. Should add a nice color show when spinning.
Starting to get exciting, things coming together now. Hopefully soon we'll have a motherboard, processor and video cards to show you. We're still not set on which ones to get yet.
I can not end a update without some sort of teaser! Who shot JR?
ok well gander at this..
Any guesses on what that's for?
Well see you guys soon. Alot is happening now!
Here we go again! We have started assembling this monster. Still a lot of work to do but we're getting their. Were still trying to find mobo/processor/graphics cards but I imagine we'll find them eventually.
On with the pictures!!!
This is the left side. I have not even started on the left door yet. I still need to source the CPU to decide which way I need to do it. But it's a pretty look anyway.
That's the hinges I put in to hold the left door. It will be a giant reservoir so it needed support.
The right side as it stands now. Look at them gorgeous SSD's!
The power supply isn't mounted in their yet, I just put it in their so you could get an idea of the massive size of Thermaltakes 1500W PSU!
The CD-Rom is in their, with a window so you can watch it spin
I polished the sides of EK's big ass radiator. If this thing does not cool 3 video cards, nothing will!
Here are some misc shots, hope you enjoy it.
Things have been going slow guys, for that I am sorry. But the company has been slave driving me!
So here we go with a small update.
The top with the lights. really cool effect. Yes I know some bolts are missing, I ran out lol
I love this part, it's my favorite. Since the mod is for Thermaltake, I figured I would.. well.. hook'em up!
Now here is the front.
I hacked the heck out of it, but i wanted it to look different. I still have a couple things to add to it, plus the top isn't on. So obviously that's not the finished product, but a good idea.
So umm yeah, small update. Hopefully soon we'll start adding hardware. And don't forget. Check out http;//www.deviceunknown.com for new modding reviews. We have a contest coming up for a free SSD anytime now. so get signed up today.
