Batman : Arkham City Finished Pictures 01/06/2012

Happy Holidays,

My oringinal Idea for the case mod, was to re mod this NZXT Vulcan micro-atz case all i was going to do was Batman etching on the window for my 7 year old son, Just a little weekend project, the ultimate goal was to make a nice little Lan case ,but when i started getting a few more ideas came to mind .

I very thankful for Biostar, Intel and NZXT . With out there support these are just visions on paper. I showed my friend at Boistar the progress of teh case and he ask to showcase it in Vegas for CES.









I started working on the side panel first to replace it with plexi.





making the window opening bigger with a dremal tool





all is left is to is a few places to File.

Next up to see how it look on the case



removing the rivots and the disassemblyhas begun



6 differnt grades of sand paper for the finish

Decided to change the front panel a bit and add a little Batman touch to it.



Fan Cut out



I will be re-using the orginal mesh from the side panel for the front




I had some left over anodized aluminium from my other super secret project


With a scroll Saw and a file you can do amaizing things



all thats is left is have the Rez cut out and add power button and a little polishing


Alot more too do




Thank you again for checking the project out.

JJ you have a PM.

For the rest of you, I cleaned the thread! Constructive criticism is welcomed, but the disrespect to new members for whatever they bring to TPU will not be tolerated.

Isn't that rad a bit insufficient for both CPU and GPU?

That depends if you're doing extreme OC'ing or not. A 120 rad can cool a CPU+GPU, but it isn't going to do 5GHz and gpu overclocking with great temps lol. However, with a light OC on the CPU it should work fine for both. They make a gtx 580 with a built in 120 rad that cools the CPU too, and those use weak little pumps and barely any liquid.
