Update!!!

It took a while but here is a new update of the Alienware Aurora. After some doubt what I would do, paint or powder coating I decided to do it myself.
purchased a number of cans primer and Black.

Put the primer on

DSC00934.jpg

DSC00937.jpg

DSC00932.jpg

Let it dry for a night and then applied several layers of black
And again, hung to dry. Looks good i think smile.gif

DSC08452.jpg

DSC08454.jpg

DSC08456.jpg

DSC08463.jpg

Internal also used some black for the heatsink and other small stuff ... still need to exchange the connectors

DSC09593.jpg

DSC09595.jpg

Always fun to play with Alien eyes;)

DSC09606.jpg

I also gave the midplate a black layer. This to get a illuminated green border using a CCFL. I first made the top ​​white, after that a black layer

DSC00286.jpg

Placed the CCFL

DSC00288.jpg

DSC00299.jpg

DSC00292.jpg

Time to place the PCB for the lighting etc. For this I have cut a aluminum plate

DSC09610.jpg

Placed like this

DSC09612.jpg

DSC09614.jpg

DSC09616.jpg

DSC09617.jpg

After extending some cables

DSC09586.jpg

DSC09589.jpg

DSC09622.jpg

Power on for testing

DSC09618.jpg

DSC09620.jpg

And it's working again

DSC09623.jpg

DSC09624.jpg

Always good to know before the cable management begins

DSC09635.jpg

DSC09638.jpg

DSC09632.jpg

DSC09634.jpg

DSC09631.jpg

Searched and found my sleeve stuff again smile.gif for sleeving the big bundle

DSC09579.jpg

DSC09572.jpg

DSC09576.jpg

I discovered that the pins of the big block are not so easily to remove. 've Tried al kind of tools, but it isnt possible without demolishing. I just miss the slots for the pin remover.

DSC09571.jpg

So change of plans ... going to use sleeved extenions now. Sorry no sleeve update this time wink.gif

I also did the lower back. Because I made ​​the Aurora a bit higher, I also need to extend the back.
For this cut, bent and drilled an aluminum plate

DSC09659.jpg

Cut and bent another aluminum plate

DSC09656.jpg

DSC09661.jpg

First plate mounted on the existing PSU cover

DSC09655.jpg

And made the other plate black and mounted it. Must still bend it a bit and still make some openings with mesh in it..I think, but this is how it fits.

DSC09663.jpg

DSC09666.jpg

DSC09667.jpg

DSC09669.jpg

DSC09672.jpg

DSC09675.jpg

DSC09676.jpg

DSC09677.jpg

Finally the choice of the fans for the rads. The Scythe SY1212SL12H ... pretty thin fans but very noisy.
definitely need some adjusments wink.gif

DSC09647.jpg

DSC09650.jpg

DSC09652.jpg

DSC09643.jpg

More coming up!!!

I see that in eight years Alienware's attention to interior detail hasn't improved a whole lot.. Keep this up, though, and soon the inside will go from mediocre to spectacular.
