    I'm still not sure how I'd suspend the orb (which is essentially the case) but in its current state it would just collapse. I found this article on Tom's Hardware about water cooling so that should help (only read one or two of the eleven pages). The "water cooling box" in my diagrams is the reservoir (I think).

    Tomorrow I might be able to get some better drawings down. Rough ones like I've posted helped me get a good idea of the form. For anyone whose used UnrealEd they might know about the tool that blurs everything so you can see the flow of colours in the map, it's a bit like that.

    The base is attached to the head through the pipes, which are mainly metal pipes (like those in the ORAC case mod, don't know what they're actual name is) and a few water cooling pipes. The water cooling pipes would need to be extended somehow to reach from the base to the body. If you look at those pictures of sentinels I posted before, it might better explain my design.

    Update
    I've done a couple of cleaner drawings, which I'll try and upload tomorrow, along with some more if I can.

    if you win you'll see it when you come back =P

    I actually like this date push-back cuz I'm currently on an inferior computer at home with a 6600 that just can't handle anything beyond a rectangle in google sketchup. I go back to my gaming desktop this sunday, which gives me a fighting chance =D sweet.

    is it too late to enter? :S






    2x120mm Intake Fans on the bottom (not shown in picture)
    2xRadiators with fans pushing are out of case at the top rear.
    Case is roughly 40cm x 60cm in dimensions.
    The center cirlce will light up, and its brightness intensity will increase as the computer uses more power.
    When it hits the max, it will blink repeatedly indicating that the pc is completely stressed out. (at least thats the idea). The insides will illuminate to a dim blue.

    Unique thing about the case design is that it resembles that of a car, with the exterior that can come apart from the mobo tray base. So all you have to do is lift up the shell and then you can work with the insides with relative ease, as opposed to working with side panels.

    Design is inspired by many things, including Batman, Gundam, amongst other techno stuff.

    The above was actually one of my concepts for a case I was going to work on, but due to my limited hands-on experience with modding, this is a concept that probably will never materialize just because of the complexity in geometries.
