    There's a thing here. Somehow it moved to the top of the page, but I didn't do it. No, really! But still, Cheaps is likely to blame...

  7. LED Case Feet Giveaway

    I'm working on some upgrades so I'll post some pictures soon. Bringing some life back into the MONSTER build. And by Fire Ice case is getting new guts for my daughter (well, my old amd 8120 cpu, MB and 16gig ram) With my new guts, some new case feet would be awesome. But, My daughters may talk me out of them if I win. LOL

  12. Starwars X-Wing by RandomDesign

    So here is another randering of the 3D model. Still not 100% finished. But you can see were it is going. Cant make any update on the hardware yet, but believe my it will arrive soon :D Let the printing begin. For this model I am just starting at the front and make my way all the way to the back. So the first two parts were printed. Each took roughly 10-12 hours to print but I am sure some other parts will need longer, cause I still got some room on my heatbed. After sanding, I glued both parts together. As you can see in the picture, I used small metal rods to strenghten up the connection. I just don trust crazy glue alone for such a big model. To hide the gaps and smoothen out some rough spots, I used some Miliput, a two part expoy putty. After sanding it down, I continued with some more bondo to really smooth out the surface. While bondo on the first parts dried, I printed out the next pieces. And sanding again. I really want to get the sufrace as smooth as possible, before priming. That way I have to use much less filler to fill in the deep spots.
  13. G-Frame - Scratch Build (updated Mar 6, 2018)

    No curves and no side panels. Gotta show off both sides! Probably the only other blue veneer panel will be the keyboard deck when I get around to it. I do have a few more mounting panels to make for the case but it's looking like they might be bare aluminum. I am however thinking about making a Parvum style box out of the scraps and using up some of my extra veneer on it. Thought that would be a good way to get rid of scrap and also a simple scratch build that I could do a tutorial on. Don't know what color it's going to be yet. I'm out of blue dye so that leaves me with black, coffee, and vintage maple. So probably one of those, or maybe something totally different if I do order some more.
  14. DDCM Desk Project: Unique. Simple. Powerful

    https://pcpartpicker.com/list/jBy4r7 Good morning DDCM fans and followers! How about another DDCM desk PC update? We left off last time with a completed watercooling loop…. but still had to paint. So we start off by stripping it down to the bare wood. While I waited for some wood filler to dry, I went ahead and painted our Alphacool NexXxos radiators, PSU mount bracket, GSkill RAM heatspreaders, and the fan grills for our rear intake fans. Once the filler was dry, I wasted no time sanding it down. Then just testing a theory I checked the fit of the InWin RGB LED strips and how I was going to run the cable. After the cable test, I brought the desk inside to be wiped down with a damp cloth. Once it was clean and dry we started painting it black by cutting in the corners and angles first. Then we broke out the 3” brush and filled in all the big areas. If you’re still reading this far, the next update will be the components installed and the loop set back up and hopefully filled! Leak testing here I come! Until next time, Happy Modding!
  15. Turns out programming isn't as easy as I had hoped. I have a friend or two giving me a hand. In the meanwhile, I picked up 2 more sponsors! This is greatly appreciated and welcomed. First off is GEIL with supplied 2x8gb SUPER LUCE 2400 DDR4 RGB Ram Next is ThermalTake who graciously supplied RGB fans, PSU, and a sweet CPU cooler Engine 27 CPU cooler (first time for me seeing an all metal fan, looks awesome!) Thermaltake Toughpower Series PSU SFW 600W Thermaltake Riing Plus 12 RGB Fans + TT Sync Controller
  16. perplexed?

    I think I have all the changes made. Disassemble and prepare to paint is next on the list.

    Now... where's the curved bits? I'd really love to see a side panel with the blue stuff on it.
  20. Hi everyone, RandomDesign again. Although, I still got another project to finish, the WOPR, I already have started with a new project. This mod will be my entry for this years Cooler Master World Series. The concept: I am a huge fan of the Starwars films (Yes, including the prequels and the new ones) and for a long time now I got the idea stuck in my head to build a case mod related to that universe. There are many iconic machines out there in the Starwars universe like the Milenium Falcon, the Death Star or the AT-ATs and AT-STs, but I think the X-Wing is just above them all. Looking at some pictures, I thought it is totally doable to build one as a case mod. I think many people also noticed, that the X-Wing from the new movies (Force Awakins and Last Jedi) are a bit different in design then the old ones, not only in color. The new turbines are only on at each side split into two parts and not two on each side like in the old movies. I went for the new design, cause I think it looks more bad ass. Mentioning all this, the question was were to start. Cause I make a detailed 3D model for all my case mods, I got the idea to use my 3D printers to help me with some of the work here. So here is my progress so far for the 3D model. Its about 90% done, and I am splitting it up right now to make the parts ready for printing. Details are also important, so I also tried to included them into my model. You can see in the next two pictures, how I added more structure to the main body and the weapons. Thats it so far. Next, I will take a look at the final 3D rendering, the hardware for this project and also the first parts should be printed. If you are interrested in my work you can find more projects here: https://www.facebook.com/random2k4design

    Update! So now its time to mount the pump to the reservoir and then choose the perfect spot for them. When i had decided where to put the reservoir i turned the case upside down and marked and drilled out the holes for it. The mounting of the pump was really easy and as with the gpu block the fit and finish was very good. Before i mounted the pump though i had to switch out the connectors for black ones and ofc sleeve the cables ( and i know that the led strip is the wrong way in the photo, i flipped it before the mount ). As allways feel free to ask any questions you have and i will try to answer them as best i can. Cya!

    Had a great productive weekend! Made an extra webbing insert for the back light panel so it matches the double layers of the top panel. With the lights on, it creates some really cool shadow effects. Got started on the front light panel as well.. With the reservoir mounted directly in front of it, I needed to make some pass-thru holes for the in/out ports. Fortunately, the frosted 1/8" panel is transparent enough for me to see exactly where the fittings are. The view from the res side, and my markings seem to line up nicely. I used a 3/4" spade bit to start the hole, then finished it off with the dremel. With the Primochill flex compression fittings.. ..and a view from the other side.. Once that was done, I figured I'd make the pass-thru holes on the top panel as well. After marking the holes and seeing how close they were to the webbing, I decided to work them into the design, rather than having just perfectly round holes like the front panel. So I free-handed some random shaped holes to blend it in to the overall web pattern. ..and cut! I also added a couple smaller holes next to the main ones, but didn't go all the way through, just to enhance the effect. ..and with the white fittings.. Lastly, I of course just had to see what it looked like with some black LRT flex tubing! Only thing left is to add the led strip to the front panel, and then all the light panels will be done!

    I need a house for my dog and I saw this dog house which has different styles and designs. Some of the houses are beautiful, spacious and looks comfortable to live. What do you think about the dog houses? I'm open for more suggestions, though.
