    Default Victorian Renaissance

    Another year…

    As some of you know. I quit my project Fallout 2.1, and told back then that I was planning something new. A project I call: Victorian renaissance. This isn’t the name this modification will get when I finish it. I am still debating on a name that suits a project like this.
    Let’s start revealing some things I have so far. Some of you have probably noticed I had a link in my signature. This linked to a Wikipedia page, for those who have missed it here is the link again--here--. Since I have changed it to link to this thread. But I could have linked it to this Wiki page just as easy--here--.

    Now we know what I seem to have in mind, let me tell you some facts.
    I Have an Antec P182 case and I have disassembled it completely. With this done I could Reassemble it again using Google Sketch Up to the mm accurate. This helped me a lot in my design. Since I could undo designs that didn’t work for me. Here is a very early render and it has changed since. Ill post newer versions later this week.


    Rendered with the open source rendering program Kerkythea.

    Hardware,
    It won’t be revolutionary since I won’t be upgrading my current pc as I see no need to do so.
    My current hardware:
    • CPU: AMD phenomII 940 Black Edition
    • GPU: Nvidia XFX GTX260 Black Edition
    • Mem: 4x 2Gig. DDR2 1066 GEIL Black Dragon
    • HD1: 80 Gig. Intel Postville G2 SSD
    • HD2: 320 Gig. WD Scorpio Black 2,5 Inch or maybe I’ll be able to include my 300 Gig WD Velociraptor
    • PSU: 750 watt Corsair HX750W (which is modular)

    There is one upgrade possibility, and that is in the GPU department I would love to add a twin of my GTX260.

    Cooling,
    As seen on the render I made, I plan on water cooling I think it’s a must for any modified case out there. But that is just my opinion.
    I’ll be using:
    • CPU Block: D-TEK FuZion v2
    • Rad1: Black Ice GT Stealth 120
    • Rad2: Black Ice GT Stealth 360
    • Pump: Laing D5 Revision 2 Variable Speed with Ek Top (As seen in the render)
    • Res: EK-Multioption reservoir 250

    Also I’d like to add scythe copper memory heat spreaders (more for looks).

    Design,
    You are probably brainstorming as to what I am planning, I will not let you wait any longer. let me give you 5 points I will be working around.
    1. Copper, brass and flat black.
    2. Motherboard cover. One that will pull eyes to the parts I would like to be seen.
    3. Overkill Water cooling. (yes its only for the CPU, it got a little hot past summer had to clock it down from 3.8 GHz way back to stock 3.0 GHz. It won’t happen again when this is finished.)
    4. Clean look, No visible HD (Ok maybe one) and as far as possible no wires shown(and where they are visible still nice and tidy)
    5. And yes you could have guessed, it will be Steampunk.


    So far so good, I say thanks for reading.
    Yours Cheron.

    I hope you all see what I am up to... and as you can see I'll wont be starting
    on the actual case till I truly sure where to cut the holes. all sugestions are welcome and ill try some out if I like them.

    and before I forget. I like to credit: Ronski for the pump model for sketchup and Legoman666 for the radiators.

    Yours
    Cheron.

    @billygoat333 Thanks for pointing out the spelling error. Ill chance it, but I cant change the thread name. if someone who can change the name reads this, would you please change it. Thanks in advance.

    now we have seen the renders we all know the basics of what I am up to.
    now let us move to the real thing. as I mentioned earlier I had taken it apart so I could make an exact copy of the case in sketch-up. Now I have reassembled it for the moment. have a look.





    Just some pictures the cutting will start soon.
    there are more pictures you can find em here-->my flickr<--
    stay close
    yours Cheron
