2. what computer is so slow? surely we are not talking about diablo... :>

the scheme of the build is based around the suits and buildings in the new version of TRON and the lighting that they have on them. more specifically i am focusing on Clu and the color and designs from his costumes in the movie.

The finished color scheme will be a gloss black with accents of amber & smoked acrylics. these acrylics will be used to make the digital designs on the outside of the LianLi chassis.

here is a picture of clu and the color i am trying to achieve:


and no diablo isnt slo..she just is busy folding. my sony all-in-1 is a slowbie but reliable to the bitter end.biggrin.gif

no im still working on that. i really kind of set that thought off to the side for the last couple days....it does need to be addressed tho. Bay res is out of the question so im looking at either using my 250mm xspc Finned reservoir or picking up something new when i get around to designing the water loop more.

I would like to take a moment to thank my new "sponsor" for the build.

SUNSET1


tho he is not really sponsoring me...i feel his generosity needs to be shared with everyone

Sunset1 a member here @ Overclock.net has donated to me a PC Power&Cooling 1k watt PSU and a CLC kit from asetek for me to mod onto one of my gtx460s.

We have been in "kahootz" for a while now concerning modding the pre-built cooling kits that are available on the market these days and Sunset seems dead set on making me see this build through to the end and win the case mod competition for LianLi. way to put the pressure on dude!

i can not thank him enough for the Goodies and i have promised him that they will see GOOD use in this build.

Please give him a thank you for me and share the mod love if you get the chance. you never know what poor schmucks life you may change! (ok...life may be to excesive but yal knows what i mean)


Sunset is one awesome guy thumb.gifTHANK YOU BUDDY

finalizing the design in sketchup... i hid the new top to save some eye candy for later. thumb.gif

**note the red on the window'd side panel needs to be slimmed down ALOT The proportions are way out of whack. front is all slim and pretty while side is all big and chuncky... will revise more**



my first several concept sketches turned out way to "Ricey". i was getting to caught up in trying to make it super flashy. I feel this design is more refined and tho the window panel is a bit crazy the overall appearance will be "Monolithic".

my first several concept sketches turned out way to "Ricey". i was getting to caught up in trying to make it super flashy. I feel this design is more refined and tho the window panel is a bit crazy the overall appearance will be "Monolithic".
the designs will be done in a layered effect consisting of two different acrylics. The bottom acrylic being an amber yellow colored UV acrylic. The "circuitry" designs will be masked off and then the acrylic will be painted to prevent light from showing through other then where the design is. i will also be using two shades of silver to paint more circuitry desings on top of the paint.
the second.(top) layer will be a Smoked black acrylic that is about as dark as limo tinted windows. When i lay this over the painted UV acrylic it will give the outside a nice SEXY glass finish and with it being a smoked acrylic the painted circuitry on the underside will only be visible @ certain angles.
so when the case is off it will look like a black glass box. but when you hit that pwr button the UV acrylic will light up and shine through the Smoked acrylic top.
holy cow i hope you guys understood that...if not...ill have to just wait and show you cuz i suck at trying to describe things.

You had me at hello

I think the idea of black glass block and then bam turn the circuits on is awesome.

Yea...i just chucked half of my days work (pretty much one side panel lol...22 dif revisions and all fails now) to go back to drawing board. plan is to get it as sleek and Ninja as possible.. that side panel was way to mech-punk. so everything is getting stream lined even more. I went from having a case that looked almost nothing like the original...to pretty much semi-stock looking chassis but with a CRAP load of acrylic replacing the aluminium panels.

one big thing i need to desing is a way for the front 2x 120 fans to get air (since im blocking the inlet off with acrylics.) i think the easiest way to do this would be to make in inlet duct on one of the side panels and have it suck air from the side. I would need to make a proper path for the air to flow but i think its easily done.
