MOTHER OF GAWD!

I want that psu! I think I just may try that. That looks freaking amazing!

And yes, "wood" be amazing is the correct term tongue.gif

Get down to your local decoration/diy shop and look for light wood vynils, then wrap your psu with and using a couple of tones of brown ink and dry brush (soak the small brush in ink and then dry it out with toilet paper), the remnants of ink in the brush should give you a basic effect on the wood vynil.

Some updates

Decided to redo the Sketchup model I made, and actually make components for the panels like it is in real life. I'll probably make an exploded view tomorrow and post it. Here is the front panel and motherboard tray being joined together. This is without the top panel on.


I finally made the edges on the trim pieces rounded, so they look like they do in person.



Here is an overall picture. Here you can see the lines and where everything joins together.


I should have a small update coming tomorrow. Probably getting the motherboard tray and I/O panel painted, and maybe doing some work to the top panel so it has the slots cut in it like the bottom. I'm also getting applications for jobs this weekend too biggrin.gif

Awesome, I was awaiting moar from you...I stumbled upon some cheap chinese wc parts lol
Some guy posted a build log using them, and they are REALLY good for the cheap pricing, up to par with Magicool bought from Sidewinder or ppcs.
So tempted to make a wc loop and mod my cm 690 or make a test bench. tongue.gif
