    LOL, "Replicator Tech" that would be so cool.

    I took a bit of a break (waiting for the CF) I finally got some regular red CF (lol, it seems funny to say regular CF) It seems that all the holographic stuff is out of stock so I continue to wait..

    All you guys in the UK I think I heard its made over there, if so and you can find it I would really appreciate a PM as to who makes it.

    Here is a shot of the red, it looks so nice in person I cant wait to make the mobo tray if the Holographic stuff dosent show up within the next week or 2

    nope just slow:laugh:

    This red stuff is CF/Kevlar, Im pretty sure the red part is the kevlar. Also this is the 2X2 twill, as opposed to the regular checkerboard version (of the black/gray mobo tray). The twill is easier for compound curves, Il be using it to make brackets as well.

    one other mod to the mod is I am moving the mobo over a bit (so the I/O side is more countersunk. I am also trying to figure out if making the mobo tray U shaped instead of like an L is better.(would eliminate the separate 80mm fan plate)

    Regardless of what you do to it, it's still hot damn gorgeous...

    Can't you make something ugly for a change? Or is that physically impossible for you to do? :D

    LOL, Im sure most would rather that I actually "complete" one rather than move on to the next project before completion for a change.:roll:

    Thanks Thrackan:toast:

    This mold is a bit more tricky as I am using glass to make it (the surface of the mobo tray is amazing when pressed between glass sheets + it dosent stick as much)

    If that mattered, I'd have removed my more-than-a-year-old project a long time ago...
    Actually, I'm currently sleeving a 24-pin extender cable I got, expect a very small update there soon ;)

    Thanks Panther I appreciate it:toast:

    For many of those younger this probably sounds a bit retarded, but the recent addition of anime to my life has improved my general outlook quite a bit:respect:CS

    I haven't watched much anime since violence jack. That screwed up my perception of the world.

    Just reading this now. Makes me feel like shit because both the bios chips on my mobo are gone. I also think the caps in the PSU was the bang...was there smoke?

    Hi MK! :D

    no smoke, just a loud pop. (one of the reasons for the Bloodrage mobo is it has 2 completely separate/replaceable bios chips in case you mess one up which I have been known to do, lol)

    The replacement Seasonic 500 has been running it fine for the last couple weeks (I have the BloodRage, W3503 and a pair of 4770s in a junk case)

    I was really Bummed with Newegg though as they offered me $ + the PS. I declined the $ and asked them just to correct the prob but they never bothered to respond to my request.

    I am in the middle of designing a mold of glass for the mobo tray (lol, not as easy as I thought it was gonna be) I am hoping to make it so I can make a few of these.

    And while I like the Black PCBs and red details of the 4770s I REALLY wished I had kept my original passive cooled ECS 9600GTs (I sold a few sets so if you ever get tired of them feel free to PM me guys ;))

    I have learned a lot with this build and am starting to focus a bit more on energy efficiency, If I knew what I know now when I started this I would have done quite a bit differently (as to picking hardware)

    glad to see you are trying (oncemore) new things....

    and I quote....
    "I have learned a lot with this build and am starting to focus a bit more on energy efficiency, If I knew what I know now when I started this I would have done quite a bit differently (as to picking hardware) "....

    but then again you would never have learnt all this if it wasnt for this build! have no regrets on this, as we all learnt something through this build!:cool:

    I have been sidetracked quite a bit lately and thing next week I may do a re-design of this mod.

    What do you think of keeping the 4770s and water cooling the comp like the last Crossflo I did?
    [​IMG]

    I would make the mobo tray Red CF, but move the rad to the right side of the comp (exhaust) so I could keep the plug in PS. So the hoses would be on the back side (not really seen)

    Damn it that looks factory (if the factory was on a different planet than Earth). Raising the bar...as usual.

    To me MK, I think it should stay air cooled.. your throwing in the fact that it can be switched out in matter of seconds.. adding water, would make it to where you have to make sure you have the right block, worry about water... To me, it would be a design change but almost going away from what you said you wanted it to be of..
