Specs:

AMD 1090T X6
MSI 880G-E45
4GB DDR3-1333
Radeon 6850
80GB Intel SSD
700 Watt PSU


I saw this skull on eBay and knew I had to have it on a wicked new build

Image

I chose a black Raidmax case as the canvas. I knew it needed to be plain because I would be ratically changing it and didn't want any snazzy features poking through

Image

It came with a cheap PSU, but I'm not using it

Image

Every evil case starts with red

Image

A 120mm intake fan is essential when using heat trapping expanding foam

Image

And another 120mm fan on top. Yes, it is off center on purpose

Image

Image

Remember this boney hand? I pulled it off my GreatSatan mod

Image

Here's a small intake fan for the right side

Image

I took this intake fan from my Clowned mod that my Mom never used

Image

I'm adding mounts for the spine I took from TheGreatSatan as well

Image

Here's where I break out the metal wire

Image

Image

I guess this is supposedly used to clean paint brushes, or store them, or something. To me, I see a cool grill

Image

The arm also came from my GreatSatan mod. I originally thought this would be a terminator mod, since it's literally terminating some of my past projects

Image

Time to finally move on to the expanding foam. I have a bit of experience with this stuff and will make it look better than ever

Image

I had to carefully add foam to the DVD door without making it stick shut

Image

Then I added more to the top around the top exhaust that I purposely cut off center

Image

Image

Image

Then I got to painting

Image

Image

Image

Next comes the skull

I used a wire mesh frame that I slid the skull over and forgot to take a picture of it. Then I filled it with tons of foam.

Image

Here's where this mod will differ from many others. I will spend a lot of time with a small brush making it absolutely perfect

Image

Image

Image

Image

I made sure the drive worked. Guess what? It didn't. I had to tear the old one away from the foam and put this one in. Then I had to refoam and paint...

Annoying

Image

The USB ports are actually part of a hub that is plugged into the real front panel ports. I put it on an angle because it looked better that way

Image

Here's my motherboard

Image

And my spare 1090T

Image

I even had a spare Radeon 6850 reference card laying around

Image

All the parts are in and the system does start up. The motherboard is kind of cool because it has the power button right on the PCB

Image

I'm using an 80GB Dane Elec SSD. It says it's actually a (1st generation) Intel X25 that was made by Dane Elec. They read at about 150MBps, which is slow for an SSD, but still quicker than a mechanical drive

Image

Image

I dropped in 6 gigs of RAM in a 2, 1, 2, 1 configuration and the BIOS reported that I had 12 gigs installed...?

Then a changed the locations of the sticks within the channels and it still said I had 12 gigs installed

Image

Then I pulled out the two 1GB sticks and it reported the four remaining gigs correctly

And that's where it'll stay

Image

An eyeball arrived

Image

I drilled out a little hole and added some foam

Image

I tied up the veins into a screw to anchor the eye in the skull

Image

Image

I got out the paint brush again and made the eyeball socket bloody again

Image

Kind of...it's built for the sole purpose of being displayed at the Micro Center where I work
.................................................................
So I got this bag of goodies in the mail. The chocolate bunny is a different kind of goodie

Image

Now I start the assembly. The instructions are garbage so I'm going to wing it

Image

Image

Image

Any ideas?

Image

I attached the arm to the hand and started integrating foam too

Image

Once the parts are all holding together with a little bit of epoxy, I fill in all the rest with more fleshy foam

Image

And now to add the silver

Image

Image

Bloody stuff coming up next!

Where'd you order the T-800 arm kit from?

Ebay. Shipped from Taaiwan

I started putting in the red flesh

Image

I added more foam and attached the arm

Image

Then I painted it

Image

I have these flames from when I made El Diablo

Image

I just had to make them red

Image

And then I mounted them to the Video card with some epoxy, leaving the vents clear

Image

Image

And now it looks really hot!

Wow GreatSatan, you really do move fast. Great work!
Coming from an old person, such as I, I would call it fascinatingly gross. It hard to look away from your intense creation. Thanks for showing us.
