TY guys :)

The final "fit up stages" are here!!!!!


The power supplies for the RED and BLUE side blade EL wires are secured just below the mini atx board! power is sourced from the base of the case and plugs are left to attach to the side panel.

A start can now be made on the plumbing!...

The previously pearl painted pump rad and rear fan can also be added to the cae.

06-12-2006, 07:47 PM
sniff sniff... its so beautiful! :p By the way, covering up the barbs was a good idea, I was hoping youd do something about that cause the blue clashed with the rest of the color scheme.

Excuse me while I clean my pants.

This is so amazing. In fact, i cannot even begin to think of the words needed to describe this... so i will make up a new one.

Hey defyant, i found somthing that would look cool on your mod

http://www.bit-tech.net/modding/2002/06/22/knight_rider/1.html


Imagine those front blades doing the back and forth knightrider thing! that would look so sweet :D

Defyant
06-26-2006, 09:15 PM
Cheers again guys!!

Yer!!this was actually mentioned over @ twisted forums by Angel in the very very early stages of the mod!!

The thing was, i didnt want the case to become too "modernised" i actually wanted it to look very very simple kinda classic... much like a modern day audio gear!

I did buy the Jaycar kit :P for 19 au.... and even changed the LED's for a better result.... but it just looked tooooo cylon :)

Today I worked with bondo. Making a blowhole. Kinda like defyant's, but more bondo. And it's damned hard.

Of course, He's been modding for at least ten years...

I wouldn't either! I read an article that showed that sand method, it's pretty ingenious. I was gonna make a pvp cannon and wanted one part ot be curved, filling the tube with sand prevents kinking and collapsing when you are bending it.

Now to read some tutorials on bondo... doesn't LOOK too bad, but... well, read the beginning of this post again.:D

Wow. That's all I can really say though it doesn't do this mod justice. Simply amazing work defyant. I really learned a lot reading your worklog. The paper clip for the rom plug was brilliant an I think I'll have to steal that from ya for my mod :p.

Defyant, I've been watching your mods on various sites, and I gotta say, I agree with MDCS in her log when she said that you are the mod god. The whoel series of HP mods that you've completed and the attention to detail, I am truly awed. I've taken a couple of ideas from your logs, and the level of talent it takes is truly inspring. Thanks from a new guy.

BTW, HP RES 3 MEGA is my fav of them all. The dual screens is what does it. :D

Oh you magnificent bastard.

Using the word beauty is an insult to this case, in all the languages in the known world there is no word, no sound, no utterance of praise that would be worthy of this case.

I've been experimenting with plexiglass myself, just a small sheet I picked up after work down the street.

Have you ever thought about frosting a design into your glass?

I'm having trouble frosting flames into my sheet and I'm afraid if I try anymore the entire thing will be useless, on a budget so experimentation is so-so, the less materials I lose the better.

Vertigo
09-18-2006, 03:32 PM
Simple amazing work bro, the points that get me are the inventive use of plexi inside the case, and the muted lighting, which I find to be especially nice. Also, the finish on outside of the case, great choice of colors, and the finish looks smooth as butter.

Fan freakin tastic work.

purdy
09-18-2006, 07:07 PM
Wow, that's amazing; it doesn't even look like the same case at all! Major kudos Defyant! Don't even get me started on that Bondo-job; my case mod has quite a bit of Bondo involved, and the work you've done to that case is just inspirational. Thanks for helpin' me not give up and settle for second-class work!

Hey Defyant. Had some of your mods in my bookmarks for a while now, always checking up on them every here and then. So I've just joined to say a big well done of ALL of your mods, they all stand out from the rest.

Can't wait to see your next HPRES project, Dave!

First thing to do is cut what will be the new CDROM door! Using a "thingamajig" the shape of the front panel is copied to the plex.


That "thingamajig" is called a profile guage (LOL). But I really am enjoying your work. That is some skill you have and I love the paint.

The wiring is excellant. It really is clean on the inside and it shows pride in your work.

I love that eject button on the CD. Thats what a modder can really do. My hat is off to you sir.

The water res is fantastic. Love where you mounted it, and its easy to fill.

Overall a incredible job. The glamour shots really show off your work. Bravo Zulu to you!

you sir are going to modder heaven, there are old pc cases up there singing in joy seeing one of their own become truely beautiful, ive thrown out more than my fair share of old cases in my life and never would i have thought that one could become something so amazing.


also... Perfectionist much?

No offenses meant but WAY TOOO MUCH BLUE. I realize that the industry thinks everybody loves blue in there fans and peripherals but there is an entire color spectrum to choose from. Maybe its just me but all the blue is driving me nuts.

That was my original thought until i saw the finished product.:redface:

now its more like :banana: somebody used blue LED's without abusing them wooo hooo. Loved your use of acrylic and even when it seemed it went to far with the frosting I realized I had missed the bigger picture in how it would look in the final product. You sir are very good at keeping the bigger picture in mind and how things will end up. I applaud you for that. Best mod I have seen yet.
