    True... I just was thinking of the CF/Black/red sort of thing.. But, straight black would look good.


    Now, that I'm one a computer and not a celly... Love the last update mk! Made the backend look do-able!!

    Ok I went with Black/red, I found a red color that resembles the CF.

    Thx guys. I am almost tempted to cut a hole in the mobo tray and use a bit of mirror to show the Hdd while running..

    I just noticed the Sata cables will be in the way. So I may invert the Hdd mount and look at it from underneath.

    I reversed the Enzo cooler after reading ur post DD (thanks) and it now receives much more airflow.(this is now the third way the Enzo cooler has been mounted:laugh:) I have to make a new mount out of the ed CF for it.
    Scrizz says thanks.

    LOL, neiner neiner neiner....(Guess what)

    Ok there are a couple days left till the comp needs to be done for Intel so I figured what the hell I would make a new shell/design....:wtf:

    this shell is 3/8" taller(so the GPUs will fit under the window) and the Silenx fan fits on the Enzo CPU cooler. Here are a couple shots showing the DVD and LCD mounted
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    The reason for the larger cage around the LCD is I am gonna back light the edge of the LCD (time for me to be a bit flashy)

    Hey Wile E, the new GPUs show up tomorrow...:toast:
    Scrizz says thanks.

    I picked up a pair of XFX 5770s (just for you):toast:
    (they will be here tomorrow)

    I wanted to use NV, but I got impatient waiting and the 5770s finally dropped a bit(im a sucker for price drops)

    OH yea, the real reason, the thought of me looking through the top of my comp and seeing those red side panels $300 alone...

    Normally I build stuff just to show ideas/concepts and pay little attention to aesthetics.

    I mean if it dosent make it more efficient, run cooler its no biggie to me.

    But I realized I now have hardware that will easily last through the next year. (my family is so fricken happy I wont have to buy any more stuff) So I am gonna have to look at this comp for more than a couple of days,
    May as well have something cool to look at...


    (Im not that Artsy Fartsy but il do my best:laugh:)

    Just showed up

    He's a Mod god.. Doesn't have to havae a job.. Just like CD.. He's another mod god that just builds things for everyone..

    Once you get to going and throw a few bucks here and there... Stuff become nothing... For instance.. Sold my old set up, and spent nothing on my new.. Plus had enough left over for other things.. Just gotta know how to keep your stuff in shape, and start willing and dealing..

    Go into my project log. EnergyFX made a nice little post for all us modders.
    MKmods says thanks.

    Mark goes without food so he can buy this stuff. He lives on dry-wall and sawdust. That's commitment for you.

    Oh Mark that is a nice set of twins you got there!

    I think you need an assistant that can make your posts for you so you never have to stop.

    False hope. You are a computer nerd. You will buy parts whether you actually need them or not. After all, nv's new cards will be releasing ina couple of months. :D
