Kzal hier is een poging wagen

eerst en vooral zou ik rode en blauw led fans hange. Een volcano 9 coolmod zou ook nie misstaan. Verder blauw ledjes vooraan ingewerkt (mor hoe da da gerealiseerd moet worde :s). Een blacklightje samen me wa fluoricenrende rounded cables zou ook schoon kunne zijn. De ledjes van de cdrom, hd, zou ik vervangen door rode. Verder nog een baybus met felle blauwe of rode ledjes en een blue lcd (4x20 of zo). De voeding en cdrom zou ik dan in een soort licht fluoricerende verf giete (iets da minder opvalt), oftewel gewoon zwart en dan nog een schoon logo gezandstraalt op de zijkant. Aan de achterkant van het moederbord zou ook nog iet moete kome maar da weet ik nog nie goe wa Ik hoop dak niks vergete zijn, kgon nu maffe

in this contest, we prefer creativity above photoshopping skillz

that's the challenge: make something good-looking with a crappy program everybody knows

Gonna participate this time, really could use a case with better airflow

Here we go :

(by the way, there's something wrong with the perspective of the drawing, I know I know :s )

1. MOD CDwriter, put in a plexi window, and some blue leds. Paint the front in silver or black, depending on the color of the rheobus (see below). Maybe paint the interiour as well, so that writer and DVD look alike...

2. DVD : pretty standard, same color as CDwriter

3. PSU => antec truepower480, blue led Dont think it's necessary to mod this thing, looks fancy as it is. Maybe paint it in the color of the writer/DVD, dno yet

4. Rheobus, with blue leds behind the buttons, as displayed right here :

or maybe some home-made goodies

5. Plexi Fanduct => 92=>92 mm, papst equipped

6. LCD in sidepanel, preferrably in blue, and with 4 lines display

7. Install Zallman heatpipe passive cooling over R9700 PRO, already ordered @ Maybe even put some ramsinks if possible...

8. 3 120mm fans
- 1 outtake in the ceiling
- 1 intake in the frontpanel
- 1 outtake in the rearpanel, if possible there's enough room, else 80/92mm will do fine
The one in the ceiling will get this fingerguard, nice and stylish :

doesnt protect your fingers very well though

The finishing touch on the other fans, I still have to decide... (all papst btw, already got 2, still one left to buy )

9. serial ATA hdd, no fancy shiny rounded cables, don't like that **** the thin serial ATA cable will pass nicely at the side of the mobo

10. all powercables etc will be put in a molding, allways gives a nice finishing touch

11. maybe put some ccfl's (blue) in the case, dont like the red & green stuff Have to look into that when the case gets here (*hint* )

Would look nice on my desk, nice/quiet/performant

Here's the drawing :

mot : I want to mention that if I win the case, it WILL get modded (after skoolwork, juli... ) maybe with some small changes/maybe even high end H˛O this summer If I find the time the H˛O will certainly be on my agenda !

ik moet de case niet hebben maar ik zou het als volgt doen:

- bovenaan in de case een hole snijden en met een fangrill naar keuze en enkele lazer/superbright LEDs een mooi "projectorke" maken -> fangrill vorm uitgebeeld op het plafond. (looks nice met die 'naked' fangrills

- vooraan in de case een 10cm CCFL (blauw) leggen

- lang de zijkant (op de gewone plaats dus) nog een blauwe 30 cm CCFL

- alle kabels zoveel mogelijk met cable mesh samenbinden (ik haat messy kabels)

- een plexi omhulsing voor mijn voeding kopen/maken
Edit: een felle blue led in die voeding (ik heb iets voor blauw )

- enkele silent coolermaster ledfans of zelf maken met behulp van aluminium fans (die zo blinken) en blue LEDs (moet mooi effect geven)

- zoveel mogelijk materialen met UV-reactive verf beschilderen en een UVlamp vanboven plaatsen

omdat ik de case niet wil hebben, ga ik geen moeite doen om een pic te maken...
