Nice model there though by the way, I see you're going to have a 5.25" bay reservoir

Hey guys!


So, today I got a bit of stuff going (well it really wasn't me...)
Today I brought my powersupply frosted box pieces to the tech works room at school today and I got my nice teacher (who is sponsoring me) to assist me in accurately cutting the pieces of acrylic.

The end result:



Pretty clean cuts, I haven't got to sanding the edges of the pieces.



Mock-set up before installation





That gap there is for the cables to run through.



Pretty snazzy so far?



Peeling time!





Very very sharp accented edges right here.



Installed!









The tab to install it:



Inserts into a slot above the powersupply:





I will be applying the frosted effect onto the acrylic



Comparison





So for now I can just sit back and relax



So that's it for now guys!

Stay tuned for more!

And a big thanks to Mr Forsyth for his assistance in my Case Mod!!

Hey guys!

Okay, so today I got quite a bit of stuff done!

Well first of all I finished the frosting of the Powersupply acrylic box, here's the side wall:

MMM, Frosty (:



The frosted effect demonstrated:





Compared to clear acrylic





Now, I'd like to show you guys how I will be lighting up the Powersupply frosted box using some faulty 19cm white cathodes I have:



Here they go!



As you can see they have dimmed in brightness over time:



Okay, now put together and put behind the frosted box:



Illuminated!









SO totally happy with this result!

That was last night, I got the top panel of the frosted box complete today in the afternoon and here are the results:





Okay! The pictures aren't very good as I took them in a hurry.





All I can say is that I am 100% satisfied with my PSU frosted box results!

I'm fired up with this mod, I am looking forward to doing more on my case mod (if school allows it that is)

Well that's it for now!

Stay tuned for more!

And always remember to comment!

And darnit, I didn't win the School art Prize so that's a shame.

Hey Guys!

Long time ever since I visited the Overclock.net (laid off the internet for school yearly examinations) and now I'm slowly getting used to the lazier side of my life and I remembered I had a case mod to finish off (:


For starters, I will be constantly looking for a part-time job to raise sufficient funds to continue this case modification. I realised I cannot rely on my parents forever rolleyes.gif

I have quite a shopping list which definitely includes more acrylic and a 360mm radiator, preferrably a second hand Thermochill PA radiator.

For the meanwhile, I have finished my Power Supply Fr0sted Box, using some Epoxy-Adhesive which did a perfect job.

img0925hi.jpg

Pinning it against my bedroom wall I tried not to get the epoxy (which is extremely strong once its dry) on the walls so I used paper to cover it.

img0926k.jpg

The Frosted effect is once again shown.

img0927y.jpg

The bits of paper that got stuck to it. A bit of wet/dry abrasive paper will get it off.

img0928rt.jpg

img0929lp.jpg

So that's just a kick-off for this mod's revival. I will head out to Bunnings THIS AFTERNOON to get some metal-cutting discs to hack some more metal (:

Stay tuned guys!
