[Sponsored] Temple of Fusion - All Your Transistors Will Bow to Me

post #1 of 250
Thread Starter 
I started this project four months ago. I had an idea about a custom computer case with high performance and superior liquid cooling. Where I put the radiators in front, instead of stuffing them into a case. I wanted to go big. Here are some pics of the 3D model in Sketch-up.




From the beginning I wanted to get sponsored. I wanted to see how the process worked. Since I work at AMD, I had an advantage. I got to talk to the marketing department and learned what was needed. I came up with a game plan and wrote out a proposal. This process took a long time, a lot longer than I thought. I took my time and researched on writing a proposal. Got the website up and running at www.templeoffusion.com. And it paid off, big time. I got sponsored by two companies. The first being AMD, for the computer part of the build. The second, EK Water Blocks, for the liquid cooling part of the project.




Now the sponsoring part is over, time to start building. I started out by laying out the base.



Then got the walls of the Temple cut out. This case is going to be huge. But I like to say, “Go big, or go home.”




I will use this thread as my worklog. I will try to updated it every week with my progress.

Thanks, I worked really on getting sponsored. Even EK said I had the best proposal they have ever seen.

I didn't get too much done this week, besides running to and from the store. For the wood working I got some new toys, I mean tools I got a cordless planer and circular saw. This made my life a little easier.




Got the case sides all lined up and level.




Used some clamps and the sander to even things out.

That looks like one hell of a rig. I'm hoping the finished product comes out well.
