Project: Night Sky
100% Complete




Alrighty, i finally finished building my pwn rig yesterday [aka my b-day] and it was also nice to find a nice email from OCN congratulating me on my 14th birthday. thanks guys

anyways, now that i have a pwn rig, its time to clean it up, which means, somecase moding and cable hiding, my PSU cables are sleaved so its cool, however i need a nice black interior, and a big window to show off my i7 and 5830, im also planning to cut some cable management holes, so yeh,

for my first mod, i am going to fabricate a side panel with a fan slot out of plexiglass on one of the most mod-able cases available, the antec 300, i want this to go as smooth as possible, so no screw-ups while cutting. i am rather bad with a blade

also just painting the inside black, so i need to rip some rivets out, meaning im gunna have to find a way to put it back together.

and im gunna have to find the tools.... in Canada.... [<- werent expecting that now were you? ]

so basically to summerize it all...

-Need to find black paint to match my antec 300 [also how many cans i will need]
*Found it

-need to find plexiglass
-need to find cheap blue cold cathode [blue]
*nvm i found one.
tell me how it is: http://infonec.com/site/main.php?mod...tail&id=451563

-need a list of appropriate tools, so i dont need to buy them just need to grab em at my dads work place.

-all stores must be within 1hour of Richmond Hill, Ontario, Canada

Pictures as soon as i get started, i have like 50 bucks on me, so i can probably buy the paint and clear panel now, and start the mod in like 2 weeks during the summer break, and finally try gaming caseless

also note that i wont be ordering anything, im actually going to the store

Sub Project: Foot Long

 

Well i got an ATI Radeon HD 5970 just for the heck of it, knowing full well it doesn't fit in my case, but hey... 250 bucks? who could complain? so here is Project foot long, where i cut into the Antec 300.

 

THE PLANS:

ASSEMBLY 

Ok so here is the In progress assembly 
 
IMG_0331.jpg
 
[B]Moved the rig into a nice comfy room, since its gunna be a while[/B]
 
IMG_0334.jpg
 
[B]Hard Drives[/B]

IMG_0337.jpg
 
[B]It doesnt look like i did much more, but this is where i spent the most time... with the bloody fan controller and managing the PSU cables[/B]
 
IMG_0339.jpg
 
[B]Finally finished[/B]
 
 

FINAL

Some final pictures of the rig on my desk and with the little lights it has.  im only going to buy 1 cathode for the top, since this is project "night sky" its going to be a little darker than most lit cases
 
 
[B]LIGHTS ON!!![/B] (smudges are on plexiglass)
 
 
[B]LIGHTS OFF!!!   (yeh its really dark, so 1 more cathode across the top)[/B]
 
YA lights are in an installed, 
 
 
Here it is in the car along with a micro SD card for my phone.
 
 
blue 1M cord
 
 
It works! Woohoo!
 
 
Waiting for final shots in the night.  Little more work to do, paint touchups and wiping down the plexiglass with some alcohol
 
Alrighty Some final pictures, its basically the same, even after the paint touches im going to do, so yep its finally done =P  hopefully ill have enough paint left in the end for both the touch ups and some other little projects of mine.
 
 
Here is the LED kit controller card installed.  this was the only spot that it would go in.  The slot under the Graphics card was a PCI slot, which the PCB of the controller card bumped into, the next one is PCI-E, so it fit, the next one down is another PCI, and the last one bumped into some capacitors... the only other available slot ran across the top of my graphics card, and i dont like that.
 
 
not bad, its painted black already for me :P
 
 
Another one of my off topic projects =P
 
 
almost dark, the lighting effect still isnt what i want it to be on camera, it looks real different in person, the camera takes the lights too brightly and too concentrated.
 
 
Here is the basic shot i was going for, although its a little dark, brighter front LED fans would have been better.
 
 
final shot with editing... ITS FINISHED!! :drunken:

I'm not sure where you might be able to get acrylic/plexiglass locally, try a Lowes/Home Depot. I know if you'll check our stickies here in the modding forum you'll find this thread that has a list of e-tailers for modding supplies (if you decided to order anything). There are a few Canada sites listed there for you.


Tools -
For a window you'll need either -
A) A dremel and some cut off wheels
Safety glasses

B) A jigsaw (also called a saber saw) with a bi-metal cutting blade on it
Safety glasses


Either of these tools will cut the window out. Be aware though if you use the jigsaw they usually cut straight lines and won't make a tight arc for a curved window. However, a compact disc is just about the right size for the radius a jigsaw will cut. I like to make the square outline of the cut and then use a cd to trace the rounded edges.

Paint -
I'd guesstimate and say you'll want 2 cans of primer and 2 cans of color if you're just doing the interior. I don't think you'll need more than that,maybe 3 cans of color if you want to be on the safe side. Search around, there are tons of painting threads here in the forum with tips and procedures.

The jigsaw will cut faster than the dremel. And primer goes on before paint.

Primer is a special paint that adheres to bare metal/plastic/etc and provides a strong foundation for the color paint to adhere to. It also helps to even out any imperfections like scratches. Failure to not use a primer could end with the paint job peeling or chipping prematurely.
