oh wow damn thats sexy!!
Its a Range Rover, I dont think its factory, if it is im buying one
Duh, I should have looked closer, it says "Range Rover" on the gear shift
Red CF will look tight with the red accents of the build.
That is what I was thinking, Black case, black PCB mobo and GPUs and red/black mobo tray and red accents...
whatever you decide, I know it's gonna look great
In the car? Yuck.
In a PC case? Will most definitely look sweet!
that looks great MK, i cant wait for pics
Thanks for stopping by Odin...
I am working with the PSs to see what I like better (750HX and 510 with the external voltage controles)
Also working on how to be able to easily swap the hardware between this case and the Tribute water cooled one.
To my "eye" the Rovers dash is to busy (too many buttons and the the CF would have looked better if it was a finer pattern. Its just that gives the basic idea of the color and finish (still gives me goosebumps looking at it)
Dam I wish this stuff would hurry up and get here...
Waiting on deliveries SUCKS! This is usually the part where I come up with a better idea that renders some/most/all of the parts I am waiting on useless. :shadedshu
Exactly what I mean, it's just too much on the dashboard, combined with the plethora of buttons. But in an elegant and sleek design it certainly has the potential to look sweet.
I just picked up a Vic-20 off eBay (it was $15, my first VIC-20 I think I paid like $1500 for it back in 81) gonna stuff my Intel Atom inside it (maybe a nvidia 9500gt as well we will see)
this modding is like crack...
The last few days I have been working on how to make the PS casing modular so it too can be switched between the SFF and tribute case (as well as the hardware) when I come up with a workable solution il show it...
I decided to go with the Corsair 750HX, its just too new and $$ to be relegated to the closet (poor ol 510 will just have to wait till the next mod)
Hell yeah, 80s computer ITX mods FTW
lol, I have been using Legos for quite a while, basically I did it for my bro (a lego freak).
Now its my turn to do what I want and the vic 20 brings back all kinds of cool memories so I am thinking if I can shoehorn in the 9500GT it will play COD4 (making it a useful mod as opposed to just something just for fun)
I've always wanted to put a modern build in a C64.
I remember when I bought the Commodore 64.. it was such a huge jump over the Vic 20...(+ the gray was cooler looking than the white Vic 20)
The vic 20 I got comes with the cassette recorder as well, I may mod it and make it an external DVD/Hdd but still look like a Cassette. Il have to see it all when it gets here
Commodore 64 times were good times. Ahh, the 15 minute wait until you could start a game
lol, back in those days there wasent anything to compare them to....The Vic 20 is on the way, I cant wait to plug it in and compare it to this comp...(should be close)
I picked up one of these the other day and am really glad I did (very clean look)
They come in Right hand and left hand mounting (this one is the left hand one)
combo cables are always useful! and I am sure they 'll be put to good use, by you...
anyway, just popped in to say hi, as I just came home to check on bills etc, and off, back to enjoy the last three days of my vacation.....
I can see you 've been busy as always (blowing psus up and such), so I am looking forward to go through all the log posts I missed over the last three weeks....
Talk to u monday!
Great link for those cables Mark!
Ur welcome Craig, they really shipped fast and cheap too.
And glad ur back Tzi too.... Im heading back to Calif (my grandmas 99th bday, its insane as she still lives alone)
Il be back tues and will resume this build 24/7 till done so there will be a lot of progress. Im still waiting for the red CF to get here (hopefully today or tomorrow) so when I get back I will be making a mold out of glass panels (leaves an insane good surface of the CF)
I figured a way to get the PS to be swappable between this and the tribute case so I am prety psyched to show my plan later on.
I'm looking forward to the red CF Mark. I just had some orange show up on my doorstep yesterday... It's really amazing to see in person.
how long did it take for you to get it Craig? Normally I order from Tapplastics and the stuff gets here the next day, But they dont carry the colors.
I ordered the red from Composite and they waited a few days before letting me know they were out (pissed) so I got some off eBay and they say its been shipped but it has been a few days (I am so fricken impatient)
There are a few guys really into orange here at TPU, I bet they will freak when they see your case take shape..
