    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...

    Alita: Battle Angel - Laptop Mod - Zapan Edition

    Next, I worked on some small detail. Therefore, I used a material called metal foam. It was cut to size, to make it fit in the left halft of the case. Perfect. Then all parts were primed. I ended up with applying another, darker grey tone, to give the following metalic color, a better contrast. Finished everything up with a layer of glossy clear coat. But after the weathering it will dulled down again.

    Now almost all parts are printed. Also made some tests to see if everything still fits together. After all parts were wet sanded, I applied couple layers of spray filler. After the filler, all spots that needed some more attention got visible and were filled with some spot putty. Then everything was was wet sanded again.

    Pass. I'm still reeling over the fact that some of my batshit crazy designs from the sketchup contests could be PRINTED.

    I think I'm off water for a while. This is the quietest this build has ever been and I can swap the CPU or GPU in a heartbeat. I'm digging it. Plus, water cooling is getting a little too common for me. The whole fawning over custom loop and sleeved cables builds that's going on over at builds.gg is annoying at best and the TT core whatever "mods" that could only be distinguished based on the color of the fluid and how many squiggles they had in the hardline have really turned me against water cooling and hardline as a go to feature. Though, I completely agree, the sides of the tray would really work well for a res setup, if they only made round radiators... And here is an idea for your next crazy custom project, reservoir core, circular radiator wrapped around it, fans in push-pull at the ends of the contraption. And go!

    There's room for water...some day. For now it's fine. I think a horizontal res nested in the round side mounted to the I/O would cap the 'stripe' nicely.

    Update! So it has been a couple of weeks since the last update and i have made some progress during this time and i have gotten all the components for the build aswell. As you can see i have started to put together the first version of the case to see if all the measurements lined up etc and there was some minor misses that i corrected in the cad later on but it was mostly fine. I have started to print the final version of the parts so in the next update you will see that and perhaps some cable making. As always, if you have any question feel free to ask me either in a DM or in the comments. Thanks to my sponsors for making this possible ASUS TeamGroup - Global Silver Stone

    😄 Thanks Last week, I finished the work on the 3D model. Always interresting to see the difference between the finished model and the first sketch. Then the printing started. I put the first parts into place, to see it they will fit. While the remaining parts are printing, I started to sand down the printed ones and prepare them for painting.

    Mom's Mod - Everquest Themed Pay it Forward Build

    PCPartPicker Link: https://pcpartpicker.com/list/zn9Zw6 Good morning all my lovely people! I’m pleased to announce that #MomsMod is COMPLETE!! So let’s begin….. We start off first with the Gamdias peripherals, the Ares Keyboard and the Hades Mouse. Mask and paint time. Switching over to the Nanoxia CoolForce 140mm fans, we mask the frame off so we can get the fans painted purple! After a day of letting the paint dry, we are ready to start assembling the case. So far so good! That vinyl looks awesome! But now we need the hardware…. Let’s look at the tragic tower she has been using…… all that dust! YUCK! Rip the hardware out, salvage what’s acceptable, then get that Intel motherboard installed in the Nanoxia CoolForce1 case. Now it’s time to drop in an upgraded air cooler that might just do a bit better than her other one… That cable management……. Just don’t look at the backside I told you not to look! But…. we can fix it with these lovely Nanoxia CoolForce combs!!! Boom! Build is complete! One Lavender Everquest case mod complete!! Now what…….?!?! Oh right, need to address that old desk mess situation…. And ta-da! Now she not only has a setup worth showing off, but she’s got some extra organization for all her craft business And here’s an obligatory photo of me training the next generation of modders! My 3 year old diligently putting screws into the motherboard tray while watching YouTube on her tablet. As always, thanks for joining us on this journey and keep modding!!

    LOL. I've looked at it. I'm sorta hosed on the whole deal. Can't do anything above the I/O cause the hardware and wire get out in front of it. I wish the sides weren't such large gaps but filling them might make them look like a jet engine. The only place I can fit stuff is under the I/O, and it's the spot I'm happiest with cause of the floating. All in all, I wish my tray was wider and got into the open areas on the sides so it filled them a bit. But I've already got an idea of it's replacement so I'm not gonna worry about it too much.

    Just teasing you, to be honest. There's still the floaty aspect of your mobo tray to display too.

    Polishing billet grills

    Hi all,just treated my self to some of bills billet fan grills,whats the best way to get a nice polished finish. Thanks for looking.
  23. More work on the handles. I made grooves in the handles using the big router in previous picture. Now just cut both of those in half and I will have my four handels. And a few pictures without tape.
  24. Yes, spent something like 7 hours a day for 3 weeks getting the frame done.

    Thanks! What are you thinking, a fan of blades starting at the I/O plate going out to the CF?

    Back to faceplate pestering over multiple forums: :D You can come back at a later date to make one. For now think about the horizontal banding in the ply, and the dominant stripe made by the deep-seated horizontal I/O, and how you would need to make the whole thing bevel inwards to meet the I/O. (No Jedi mind tricks were employed in the composition of this post.)
