    Now, that I have some time to do it finally. I need to get a poll going on what I have thought wise... 4 designs that will be basing the build..


    [​IMG]


    Straight forward on how it is.. there will be "case feet" that make the case "not connect" the rad box.. Allowing myself to use the "rad box" to be placed on different cases and so forth..

    Rad Box:
    will have a single 480 rad, Danger Den Monsoon res, and house the PSU. Allowing it to be a complete all in one. The front of the rad box, will house the Monsoon in the middle, and two Rad cover (140mm) on both sides.. the back side will house the PSU, allowing for the fan to grab air and blow out from the back.

    All cases are different:


    1. Raven type look. With the twist of the mobo being at the front. Top, will be set just like how Silverstone has done their cases like the Raven, Fortress.

    2. Old style TV type look. Small cubed case.

    3. Tall "Front Speaker" look. Allowing for the right side/ or even the left side to house the computer it self..

    4. 24"x24" case. Allowing for the computer to be in the middle of the case, and even having "more design" on the sides.


    All designs are not in the "complete" form.. I just got TOO many idea's that I need to finally get a spot to be at..


    All votes are welcome. Just gotta get a hold of where I should take it to..

    the old TV idea would be cool as hell. Make it look like an older style black and white set with a retro look with the knobs and such. Not sure if thats what you meant by "old style". But would be sweeeeeeet. :rockout:
    Im subin for this one. Cant wait to see what you decide.

    The TV style one looks the most unique and has the most potential.

    Thanks for the votes so far guys. The "TV" thing was thinking of being a "Upside/down" T... But, after watching "Pickers" it came to me that it could be a old style TV.. lol

    If you can get it to look like an old TV that would be pretty awesome. I mean REALLY old. Maybe even some wicker insets.I would contact Cyber Druid. He might be able to help you. You could even put the knobs as fan controls. F#$king epic!

    The TV show.. Pickers.. One episode had the old style TV. I think he said it was one of the first "tube" tv's ever made.. That's where I came up with that design...

    I don't know if I'd do it retro like that.. I'm more of a Modern day person.. I will throw CD a pm and see what he thinks..

    I voted for the Tv box, I miss the times when I had to watch b&w tv with the entire family in a room. Tv's have come so cheap nowadays that everyone can have it in his own room. Eh I'm too nostalgic!

    The Rad box is the MM Pedestal box that they use.. I did have a Pinnacle 24 that was the main focus before I said, f it, and tore it to pieces..


    So, the Material that I'm using now for the case it self, If I do ether 2/3 is Aluminum 5052. I'll make my own frame and stick it together.. If, I do 1/4 I'll use the frame from the Pinnacle 24, just have it modded more onto what I want it..

    i'm caught between 1 and 4.
    1 would be cool to see since not many cases have the upright connections like the raven, and you would have a lot of room in the back of the case for cable management/tubing/whatever.
    4 would be cool because of the simplicity of the design and, once again, the extra room.

    The TV idea is taking over the polls.. Remember, it's not going to be retro.. Just a "modern" look.. It's got ideas flowing for it.. But, We got til the 13 of next month to finish the poll.

    Thanks JR.

    When the 13th happens, I'm going to do the top two for the final result. They'll have everything set forward on how it'll be built.

    I voted for option 3, but it would be cool if you can get like a speaker enclosure to do it and get like the speaker hole and put a big fan on it. Like if it's a 12" speaker, try to fill in that hole with a fan, and then you know, work around that. So that it still looks like a speaker but it's not. :)

    I think the the raven style one would be cool, as someone else mentioned, so all the connections and stuff are on the top. My second choice would be the T.V.
