BORG COSMOS II - Reboot: Borg Cube Panel Part 01 - Page 8

post #71 of 260
Had to come post here after seeing the pictures on Facebook. Awesome, totally awesome...

That front of the case mount of the PSU is great. I think since you have it pushing the warm air down into the shroud that the fan can stay factory.

I also really like the split loom. I just finished wiring up a bunch of Qualcomm units in some Peterbuilts at work and that split loom is everywhere under the dash and hood. Very industrial looking. That is something a Borg would use.

top right short tube looks like he might have done just that??

I also like the tubing look.

The top right one thats more of a random cut looks best.

I have to say I like the top left one the best but the top right is good too.

Also if you are looking for more colors the borg also use a off white color with their greens. You can see it in most of the lighting they have.

Thanks ! Actually the fan is gonna be turned around. So i got a 120mm sucking air in just under the psu that sucks it through the psu and pushes it out the front.

This is done with a tubing cutter and tooke exactly 10 minutes. I am researching right now what would be a more natural tearing of the tubes. I will use a dremel to make maybe more and less wide cuts. That will melt the edges also a bit. I might use my airbrush to paint some silver on the edges
to make it look like torn metal. But that is just an idea.

Yeah, i made as much different cuts, sometimes two, to see how the material would behave.

I say off-white but it could be a copper, dirty light, it is part of the background mainly on borg ships.

Example 1

Example 2

Example 3

Hope that helps
