[Build Log] - The Big Budget Boomer Box (aka, the "BBBB") - Page 23

Sub'd. All I can say is wow!! Wish I had seen this log earlier. I kind of liked the white blades & crimson frame for the radiators, but the crimson blades & white frame for the case fans. Probably easier to do them all the same anyways.

You really are crazy for doing all this!! I totally approve & glad I get to watch!!!! biggrin.gifthumb.gif

Then I'll be done! More later.....

Seriously, where do you find the patients to do all of this! I would probably go nuts after doing it once or twice, let alone 42 times! The end result is looking great though - very curious to see what the fans will end up looking like once incorporated into the case.

Anyway, good luck with the (tedious) work! thumb.gif

Thanks for riding along Harvman! Ya know...I may find a way to work in a white on crimson some where. I kind of liked that one too.

Thanks Agshlee! I kind of find it fun. As long as you don't put pressure on yourself on a finish date....just tackle it and have fun with it! I will say that it was a tad frustrating tonight to get through the 33rd fan, with only 9 left to go, and then run out of sata heatshrink. Hope my MDPC-X package comes tomorrow!

You'll also notice my fondness for crimson extends outside of this computer build, as evidenced by the walls and entertainment console. And the blanket. smile.gif

That's an awesome blanket ! wheee.gif

I am a big fan of the B&W speakers as well & have them everywhere in my house.

I like your photo setup. Can we get some more details on it.

What kind of lights are you using with the umbrellas?

What kind of lights are you using with the umbrellas?

All my "faux" studio equipment is fairly inexpensive. The lighting set is this one from Interfit. Continuous lighting....not flashes or strobes. Uses 500 watt bulbs at 3,200 K. The bulbs don't last a long time, but they are only a few bucks each. The umbrellas pop off, and the stands collapse easily. Got the whole kit on sale for $85.

I don't remember the brand of the larger stands I'm using to hold the backgrounds. It was $99 at my local camera store. I use the white paper roll for most of the product photography. I just pull the paper down either to the floor, or to a little folding table I setup for smaller items. Once it gets too dirty...you just tear off a portion and throw it away. It rolls right back up also, and out of the way. I also have two larger sheets that I can drape over the rod. One white, and one green. I use those for people.

My girlfriend has been patient and accommodating with this hobby, and will pose for me if I buy her dinner. smile.gif Here is a recent shot with the white sheet as the background:

396

If I had it to do over again, ....or next time I upgrade....., I would probably get strobes instead of continuous lighting. The 500 watt bulbs heat up the room quickly. Unless I crank the air conditioner up, it gets too hot to be behind the lights after 10 minutes or so. But...it does make it easier to compose the shot and lighting when you can see in advance what your lighting is doing and move the lights around. Probably best to learn lighting techniques with continuous lighting, and the progress to strobes after you get more comfortable with with what light does.

Ahhhhh...I love to see the mailman. Except this week it has been 'mailgirl', as I guess my normal guy is on vacation. Today she brought me this:

400


Part 2 of my last order. Lets open her up:

400


Another family size roll of white sleeving, some more sata sleeving, lots of heatshrink, and some of that new "Shade 19" color that MDPC-X just released.

Here is the obligatory close-up of Nils doodle:

400


Need to do a collage of these sometime. Have a bunch at this point. Here is a close-up of "Shade 19". I'm not planning on using it, but wanted to compare it to some of the other grey's that they have. Lots of greys/blacks in the MDPC-X color arsenal at this point. Someone could probably do a pretty cool combination with them. This one is darker than the grey or the titanium grey.

400


And Nils usually throws in a couple of samples to get your creative juices flowing (or to try and move the slow sellers tongue.gif ). Today I got combat green and copper brown:

700


Now I can work on finishing the fans. Plus, I'm working on some pictures to post of the different fittings I'm considering. Look for that later today. Want some feedback on which of the sample fittings looks best with my color scheme.

Could you put Shade19 next to a RoG mobo please?
