I WANT A 3960K! ... Will they sponsor my "100% Legit Starcraft 2 Case Mod"?

But seriously, nice work on this! The etching is amazing and it looks like everything is coming together nicely.

First off I would like to thanks the current sponsors, some of which came on board before I even touched a screwdriver, thank you guys!

I will of course show pictures of products as they arrive wink.gif
Anyways lets kick off with my rough plan of the mod I wanted to do, basically I wanted to make a nice Battlefield 3 mod, this involved one of my misses hand etched master pieces. Being battlefield 3 themed I also wanted to get the camo effect on the case, I also wanted to have some sort of realism into and that’s when I came up with this idea.
image007.jpg
This was to be my starting block, although I am not quite sold on which camo route to go down, but it will be a desert style one.
The basic idea was simple, strip the level 10 GT side panel down to rework the side panel and rebuild it flush to the top grill to take a full length window with an etch in it, now I know a few will say the green does not look that right with the tan, but green UV is chosen simply because it is best at making the etchings stand out.
Oh the magazine in the side, I should mention that I plan to make this the security key and without it sitting in the slot, the PC power button won’t work.
Ok now we got the basic design out the way, I can start thinking about add-ons and other things to tie in with the battlefield 3 theme, but first I would like to start off with the etch. This process has taken weeks and is created using 1000s of dots to create the shading effects.
Original art work.
image008.jpg
So here is how far we got.
image009.jpgimage010.jpg
image011.jpgimage012.jpg

One of the best etches she has done yet I think, although it has taken some time, once finished completely I will post up some more pictures of the etching, but next instalment will be the start of the rework of the side panel wink.gif

Is there any WAY i can get this panel with BF3 etched sold to me? Do you know anyone who could do this? Cuz i really want one made so i can get it on my panel window as a mod.

I Do know someone that can do it, but the issue is you probably wont be able to afford it (no offence) I lost count of the amount of hours put into that etch at 40 and would say its about 50-60 hours worth at a guess. The fact it is art and done by hand means it should cost a lot more than 5 bucks or 5 pounds or 5 euros per hour, putting it 300+. Which makes it not really viable I think as an artist would feel like they are getting ripped off.. Imagine going into a tattooist and saying can i have a tattoo as big as this, but I am only going to give you 300 bucks... tongue.gif

Just call up a company that has a laser etcher like Danger Den .. send them a picture and they will etch it on for cheap..er

Personally one done like that by hand is worth more than $300 but think Richie123 is being nice thumb.gif

Yes it was a nice way of saying way to much smile.gif, when i eventually get onto another mod (cant help myself since BMW Mpower) I will try to borrow some equipment to film the etch being done and then speed it up.

Been a while since I updated, as I thought I would hang for the radiator to do another update, sadly still not here, but it is due to hit me this week, anyway here is what I have been upto meanwhile.

After being let down with my fans for this mod I quickly reached out and overclockersuk stepped in and supplied me the fans I needed, Originally I had wanted orange bladed fans but when my contact suggested I use the Alpenfohn fans that have a hint of orange I thought no way until I saw the link. As the build is black and orange (with only hints of orange inside).

image001.jpg

So Thank you to OCUK

image003.jpgimage004.jpg

I was pleasently surprised with the build quality of these fans, especially with the rubber like coating on the frame and blades. And up close they look very well made. The fans themselves come with PWM connectors as standard, but come with this inside the box.

image006.jpg

What yo basically have is a 4 pin to 3 pin adptor, a molex adaptor and 4 silent fan grommets in the same colour as the orange hint on the fans, A nice touch if you ask me.

Mod wise I put the mouse back together, but not before I re hacked away and the mouse base to get the orange to bounce out of the worn trigger finger button.

image007.jpg

Ok so first attempt at filling down the base to bounce the light down almost worked, so it was back to the drawing board with this.

( yes my hands are really that big and yes they are covered by modders tattoos (tattoos in this case means loads of little scratches and nicks lol)

image008.jpg

Second attempt worked out a lot better with the glow finally reaching the bottom and having the bright spot in the middle instead of all the way to the back of it, this was done using a bit of foil stuck to the back of electrical tape inside the main body (only stuck to the back of tape so it was no longer conductive).

So here is how it looks in the dark

image009.jpg
image010.jpg
image011.jpg

Next up was the headset, after wearing it down a bit I took the camo wrap to them

image012.jpg

Funny thing happened just before I went to post this the radiator turned up!! So I went to town installing it and took some more pictures for you guys. So here are some pics, these were rushed so I could post this before trotting off to work.

That’s all for now folks, I am hoping to have some final shots done by next week fully assembled and up and running.

Mouse is epic, everything is epic. When you finish the build, should get ahold of a nice camera and take some really good shots of everything.

Messing around with different colour lighting one the window, made something wierd happen when you walk past the panel (sorry could not help myself and had to show this.

As you can see the colour changes as you move from side to side, but the amazing side effect makes it look like he is watching you and turning body to follow you too..
