I did add this to the concept part of the op.
-edit- And.... in typical fashion as I have gotten deeper into this project it has become more that what is was intended. I now plan on making a custom front plate as well as modding the GPUs and some special internal goodies.

But right now I have some of the hardware running on a tech bench and it works fine for my work, so I decided if I am going to do this I will do it right, granted the ideas have bloomed a tad, but thats what makes it fun!
Well, I certainly wasn't trying to call your truthfulness into question, just making with the jokes. And when you're doing the work, who cares about mission creep, it's just more to enjoy!

I'm starting to wish you were working with a different case, though. I'm looking at mine and getting the urge to sleeve things. It's a scary feeling. Is this how it is all the time for you?

LOL Why do you wish I had a diff case?

Yea, during and after the Katharos Mod I learned allot of this really fast; but I've always enjoyed drawing and painting and most creative things like web graphics and such.

There is something about case modding that I can't explain. I enjoy smooth angles and tight color schemes, and nice heatshrink, and well the simple small details are what always catch my eyes. So the urge to create those and transform something from boring to a work of art is sometimes comes out of nowhere because an idea hits me. It makes it hard at times to fit the time into my schedule as I am a full time minister, but I find the time here and there. Allot of it is relaxing and I have a buddy that skypes with me most of the time while I mod so it's a fun time of just kicking back laughing.

In my research, I've read that the NZXT 200mm's are actually 192mm and don't fit any case except their own. Just FYI.

I was looking at those also, until I found that out. What's wrong with your painted fans? The Corsairs are actually good, same as the Xigmateks.

Really? Hmm. I’m on vaca right now, but I already have the nzxt fans at home including a 200mm fan sitting at home. When I get home I will let you know if it fits.

The painted fans work fine, but the more I worked on them the more I did not want so many different blade configs, like all fans have a diff fin shape so they would look a little off, well I didn’t have enough fans of anytype on me and If I was going to go get some I might as well just get black and white in the first place. So that’s how the nzxt fans came about. That and ive always been partial to alot of the nzxt products.

I'm not sure if the plan is to hook up all the fans to the built-in controller, but if so be careful with the 200mm NZXT fans especially. IIRC those are the fans someone in the 600T Club was using and pretty much knocked their fan controller out.

Thanks for the heads up. I wasnt planning on it, I was only going to use the controller for the rad fans, so it should work out.

Well so you guys dont think im doing nothing... LOL

I tryed my hand at a cad program to save some money on the lazer for the front plate. I will be posting them as I mess around with them untill I can settle on an idea. I will have a 200mm fan right behind the front bottom and the dvd drive will be slot loading. (not the one I made)



So any ideas let me know. =) And these will def look poor at first untill I can get the hang of this.

This looks pretty good for a first attempt man. Love the work.
