    Sometimes when everything seems to suck the most something happens to reaffirm my hope in humanity.

    So im sitting around yesterday chatting with a neighbor when a huge box of computer parts showed up with no note/info I really had no clue what to think, all there was on the shipping label was "BadBoys of TPU"

    So to those that had a hand in it Thank you from the bottom of my heart:respect:

    What I would like to do is make a case/log and dedicate to all of you.

    I would like to make a completely new case just for us so I need your help with suggestions on what it should house, what it should look like, and what size (big tower, small tower, cube etc)
    I noticed in the Bad Boys modding thread the TJ 07 is popular...well here is your chance to contribute to making an even better one.

    So please post your thoughts/ideas...

    Dude, as much as I would like to help, i'm sure that whoever was part of it will appreciate even if you just thanked them, which you have done in a very kind way :toast:

    I mean unless others can give you ideas, just do what you think its best for you and easier to do. TPU will appreciate anything!!!! Regardless of what it is.

    I would still like to see a case made of modders mesh...but hey that's an idea. I know its not very practical but i think it would look good. However I'm sure anything you do will be awesome!

    Ok what if you did a red and white TJ07 build. On the side opposite the window a giant red TPU logo would look sweet. Also the front below the power button would have to have a logo as well. The top and side mesh grilles would look awesome done in red. A murder mod style solid mid floor with Tech Power Up written on it in the same style as the site header would be cool as well. Of course you would have to use red video cards ;)

    I have a ton of ideas for this mod so I will help out for sure.

    Oh, I just noticed that you wanted to make a new case but the theme would have to be red, white and black.

    That would look pretty crazy. Especially with Red fans with white shrouds.

    well the club is the Bad Boys of Modding so lets make a case so good the case companies will need a 10' ladder to be able to kiss our asses.
    I really like that idea SK, but imagine it in the front like I did Steevos case with my custom fans and the PA 120.3 rad that was in the mystery box. Its important to me to keep airflow going 1 direction with the least resistance.

    I will make the back panel like I did my Rosewill II mod from mesh for you jbunch.

    I noticed there are a lot of TJ 07 fans and rather than copy their case (and murderbox's stuff :respect:) I want to make a case that will never be compared to anything. I like your color/logo ideas.

    of course thats just an idea i know you want to make a case but im not that good with the case/hardware side of things but paint/design wise i have a few ideas.

    o and as for size full tower specs or how are you going to fit all that cool stuff?

    /will not fit in midtower atx design

    oh yee of little faith...
    Here is what I was thinking of the logo. I was thinking of cutting the logo out, using mesh and making it a vent.

    I just went and had myself an awesome idea.

    How about a completely custom case.

    A cylinder lying on its side with the TPU logo on the end. It could have long rectangular side pieces below the centerline to act as feet that would contain triple or quad rads. It would have a curved window on the top of the cylinder and house the Motherboard lying flat with the HDDs, PSU and WC gear underneath.

    It is hard to explain in words so I will keep developing some sketches and see about getting some cad models up on here.

    All I can say is wait and see what else I come up with because the idea looks sweet on paper and in my mind :D

    If I can get these ideas put into a good set of blueprints I am going to need lots of support from fellow TPUers to get this thing built.

    By the way I can easily fit this stuff in a mid tower but would you guys rather a full tower case?

    Solaris, make the power button of the logo the actual power button?

    Whilhelm, get a pict or 2 of ur idea.

    Now that just made my morning :roll:, nearly choked on my coffee.


    Definitely want to see some of your fans and alot of other custom parts in there.




    Yeah I like the idea of making a completely different case than has never been done before, we will then be unique in the world of modders.(also my TJ-07 will not look like crap compared to yours then :respect:)

    I really like your carbon fibre mods, there is something just different with carbon and would be nice if you could incorporate it somewhere in the build.

    Also would like to give the red/white colour theme a +1, really like those two colours together and maybe a wee bit of blue and we are good to go :D

    Forgive the horrendous drawing lol, but this may better illustrate my point. Don't worry I will see about getting some real cad renders up here once I get solidworks up and running again.

    [​IMG]

    That back part is supposed to be round haha

    Oh and my cad skills completely destroy my ms paint skills :laugh:

    Every Bad Boy of Moddings opinion is in high regard here! And you are the one that made OCing interesting to me.

    Thanks SteelKane for the offer. this one is gonna be completely scratch built from alum and CF.
