    To view this case mod, go here.

    [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Specs:
    * QX9650 *
    * DFI Lanparty DK *
    * Geil Esoteria rev.2 8gb *
    * Powercolor LCS 5870 *
    * 500 gb seagate 7.200rpm sata2 *
    * 1500 gb seagate 7.200rpm sata2 *
    * NEC DVDRW *
    * Tagan 900watt *

    Mods:
    * Revision of my first case construction. The material used is MDF (Medium Density Fiber Wood Compound), mainly due to its' superb noise and vibration reduction properties. 1) Designed it from scratch having in mind that I need room for two reservoirs, and four radiators, about 14 fans, and room to hide all drives and psu from view! Details about the case construction you can read in the worklog. 2) The WC consists of one EHEIM 1250 (1200 lt/h) pump, heatkiller cpu block,EK 5870 waterblock 2 reservoirs,4 radiators. 3)Bullseye reservoir placed in custom side holder 4)Every cage and fan controller was painted black, as well as the mobo tray and front fan grills. 5) Applied speaker type features. Installed sub-woofer grills to the rear of the case, as well as retractable handles and anti-vibration feet. 6)replaced transparent and black tubing with white and used compression fittings (just so that Steelkane will like this...lol)

    thanks guys!

    took about 7 hours to take all part out, clean them and setup again!

    I have to thank @Jason (thelab.gr) for the inspiration!

    Nice custom work man, definately 10/10. Three questions:

    1) How heavy is it? Specifically the case, but also w/the internals.

    2) Do you have a loop diagram? With that many rads I'm curious how it all fits.

    3) Will it blend? :toast:
    Great job man.

    White Stripes.

    Brilliant modification !

    The color pattern reminds me of the ending sequence of Aliens (Alien Queen vs Ripley & Bishop) and gives unprecedented glory to the guts of "Starcruiser", hence the title ;)

    10/10.

    Keep up the good work m8.
