    Well guys the time has come for my big reveal of what I have been working towards for the past few months!

    I know some/most of you are familiar with my build, PermaFrost, which was awarded a spot on the Million Dollar PC. Well that build I accomplished two goals, one to be recognized by the aforementioned website and two to achieve a build that would allow me to seek sponsors and make a passion that drained my bank account into one that is sustainable and able to flourish (read: sponsorship)

    So first I will introduce my initial sponsors (list to grow, haven't even begun to seek my hardware sponsors,yet)

    [​IMG] [​IMG]


    Lamptron will be sponsoring a Custom made FC-3 controller and lighting for this build!

    Lian-Li has sponsored me with this Wonderful PC V-2110b case that I should be receiving in the next several days.

    Gilgamesh will be supplying me with some things, namely a radiator ;) more to come on that later in the log :up:

    I hope you guys are as excited as I am about this, I have some cool concepts that I will be implementing into this one and hopefully some partnerships with some of the other top modders to make it outstanding.

    cheers,

    -Ian

    Initial Concept Render, youll see some inspiration here from the WCG logo and from a waterfall, and some hints about who I will be working with for some parts of this one ;) (5.25"bay plate looks like what?)

    Nice PermaFrost, bet that was a backbreaker, especially that sweet wire management,.

    thanks man, yeah it was a killer to figure out the wire managment but when you spend as many hours as I do imagining the possible configurations for lack of sleep it gets easier :rolleyes:


    got a tip from loop over at OCN, thoughts?

    ok, my opinion for what it's worth is there are to many swooshes and it needs to be squared off a bit,
    i think i over did it but i bel;ieve in throwuing mud o nthe walls fast and furious,,
    so here a little spitballing...


    with the black being mesh, or the same treatment as the dark front or jsut a variation in color, don't know...

    I agree, I have had similar criticisms in other places and I especially like the squared corners down at the bottom :D

    I too agree that the squared corners look alot better... also I'm really diggn SysV's FLOW in the sidepanel as well :toast:

    I have an idea... use a lighter shade of blue for the interior and maybe some white tubes or purple?

    I don't like the squared corners.

    Also if this is project flow, sharp corners sort of don't fit the name.

    Ok so I got two criticisms: 1) square it off, 2) no DONT square it off, this is what I came up with after messing with the look. I didn't want it to look like I had gone a scribbled all over my case door and I didn't want it to look hard sharp and angular.

    (The holes represent the mesh that will be powdercoated blue but it doesnt look very mesh-y right now)

    The Lian-Li cases are fabulous V1110 V2110 (I have one), except for three points:

    1./ The black coating on the aluminium is too soft/thin and scratches way too easily. I have taken very good care of the case, but it is covered in very fine scratches... it seems that dust caught between the case and a piece of paper is enough to scratch it

    2./ The power supply at the bottom is a great idea... nice and tidy and improves the centre of gravity, BUT, no cables on a standard PSU are long enough to reach. The case really needs to come with cable extenders of the PSU (24pin, 4 pin and 8pin power cables).

    3./ The HDD rack at the bottom (the one closest to the PSU) is too close to the PSU, esp. a pro PSU with 8pin, and needs to be removed just to let the PSU fit. Silly. IMO, they should dump the second 3.5" rack and replace it with a 2.5" rack for new format HDD and SSD drives :)
