This is my first real desktop mod, and it's been long in planning. Now that most of my components have arrived and some progress has been made I've decided to share what I've created so far.

The concept behind this case is to design a simple elegant case jam packed with technology, toys, and a powerful watercooling setup.

The idea for the design was directly inspired by the case I started with, a 10th Anniversary Lian-Li PC-a60c: *click for big*

Greetings to one and all!

My apologies for the infrequency of updates. I have prior engagements that I shall be rid of by the end of the coming week. Very excited for this, and other projects to come.

Since my last update, I have worked out an arrangement with a local sheet metal shop. Bill Lawson and his boys from Metallica Mfg came highly recommended to me from various friends.

Without further adieu, here are some glory shots of the copper monstrosity:

Filing all the pieces. Rotary cutting, unsurprisingly, does not give as clean of an edge as waterjet.

Some printouts I made for the machinist to better understand the folds I am looking to achieve.

Picture of part of the shop. They sure have many goodies in here!

"What a machine!"

Clean bends, very little marks on the metal.

The metal itself clearly still needs a bit of work. Sanding, polishing, eventually laser engraving followed by a clear coat.

Front panel is still very much unfinished in terms of filing.

I just read this entire thread start to finish, this is an incredible project, it's sad to read that Langer will not be completing the project but it's great to see that his legacy lives on, this has has to be one of the best Mod threads in CPU history. it would be great to see an update

You had me at "Prometheus" (fan of the movie), but now that I've seen the content of your build, I'm intrigued. Consider me subbed.

I bet his sponsors are thrilled.
There is a long story as to why that is.
As much as I would love to see this finished, I hope SaibotC is okay

No,it would be better left as it is,a fitting tribute to an outstanding modder.
