    Not a huge modding update but I got a bit of cool gear in.

    I got a Technofront water cooling test bench and 2x new Koolance flow meter displays. Can't wait to use em!

    This build is simply amazing. The attention to detail is impeccable. I've seen quite a few different builds, but this one easily tops them all hands down. I love the leather on the backplates and the leather-covered SLI bridge. The copper tubing is seriously epic. Can't wait to see the whole thing complete. Keep up the excellent work.

    Fuganater must have more patience than earth's got humans. Simply wonderful work. Keep thinking, "I hope it fires up properly!"

    ya the white is quite bright... idk yet.

    Only waiting for the new nixie tube for the FC10.

    Thanks!


    Thanks to everyone that voted! I'm sorry there hasn't been an update lately. The hurricane really messed up our mail here but I finally got my gears last night. I'm started painting them right away but that will be in my next big update in the next day or 2.

    I also got myself a Caselabs case for a project next year. M8 + Pedestal

    More soon!

    Final Update

    Here it is. The final build update.

    All the gears neatly packed by Thomas.

    [​IMG]

    I got quite a few.

    [​IMG]

    Took me about an hour to peel off all the paper from the MDF... fingers were killing me.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Once that was done I painted them all gold and started putting them on.

    Back panel.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Window side

    [​IMG]

    Midplate

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    And that's a wrap! Here is a teaser for the final photos. Those will be posted tomorrow.

    Someday I might 3D print some stylish minimalistic (else too difficult to make) cases of whatever form factor is the norm then (probably miniITX or μATX). I will never be a real modder but who knows I might make something interessting someday.

    Indeed. Photos took about 14 hours to upload. I'm about to post a huge image dump so get ready.

    Thanks! Do it!

    My first project was rather primitive. We all have to start somewhere.

    Indeed. I might start a project some day.
    Albeit the 3D printing thing still fascinates me a bit.

    As someone already said, you really should consider posting that on Million Dollar PC. It definitely is up there with the best of them. I love the amber glow and the fact that it looks like an old furniture-style radio. I think it's fair to say that everyone here wishes we owned that masterpiece.

    The end result is just AMAZING! Truly a unique rig. Seeing the finished product it instantly made me think of this.(Xenturion twigged on it as well ;) ) Can't wait to see your next project but it's gonna be tough outdoing this one me thinks :rockout::respect:

    Edit: Do you intend to put this up in the Case Mod Gallery? Give us all here a chance to vote on it at least.
