F/A 18 HORNET Blue Angels / U.S. Navy Tribute to our military *UNAUTHORIZED (I'll explain later)... Inspiration for this project in addition to paying tribute to our finest was having some POWERFUL fun with a MOD/Build project. Purple Heart ~ MERIT and Screaming Eagle ~ Medals of Valor were solemn and serious, I need to have some fun so here it is. The BUILD LIST is as follows: Thermaltake Technology Inc Armor Plus Case Thermaltake BigWater 760 Pro Cooler Master Silent Pro 1300W Hybrid PSU ECS Z77H2-A2X Deluxe Golden Board Sapphire Technology HD 7970 Dual X GPU Corsair Dominator Platinum 16GB DDR3 SDRAM 1866 Corsair Dominator Platinum Light Bar Upgrade Kit Intel Labs / Intel CORE I7 3770K Intel Quad Core 3.9 Ghz 8Mb cache Junpus DX1 Nano Diamond Paste ADATA SX900 128Gb SSD X 2 Corsair FORCE GT 240Gb SSD EKWB EK-KIT L240 Cooling Kit 1 x Masterkleer Tubing PVC 13/10mm (3/8"ID) UV-reactive Black 3,3m (10ft) 2 x EK G1/4 plug with O-ring 2 x EK-CSQ Adapter 45° G1/4 Nickel 2 x EK-CSQ Adapter 90° G1/4 Nickel 1 x EK-VGA Supremacy - Nickel (EK-VGA-SUPREMACY-NP) Fitting Size 1/2" Barb for 1/2" ID tube AeroCool Touch-2000 Controller AlphaCool NexXxos Monsta Full Copper 240 radiator Enermax: 3 X T.B.

Very few had the foundation for this project and modable to the concept. BEFORE: ~ The Case MOD ~ Sanding the plastic before primer Every piece is rubbed with a Wet Sand of 400 then 800 before prime I'm working on a AirBrush and Paint Shop for help but until that is accomplished it's rattle cans Even in the summer time I like tree decorations of the MOD Type: I discovered the hard way you MUST let your paint rest for 2 days before final clear work: Next up for MOD is the RAZER Keyboard and Mouse: After I finished here I signed up for school at TECHSPOT. CAD Autodesk Inventor, Sand Blasting, Powder Coating, Laser and Water Jet plus a MAJOR Giant CNC bed Machine. Future builds will be so much better. However, this rattle can job isn't too bad. ~ CASE ~ After primer I did 3 coats of color, wet sanded 1000 then 2000 grit between coats and cleared 2 coats with very fine wool between ~ Keyboard and Mouse ~ After primer I did 3 coats of color, wet sanded 1000 then 2000 grit between coats and cleared 3 coats with very fine wool between added an extra clear coat to items that will be handled Some "MOD" fun. Not sure I like this much so I'm making these elements easily removable. This is not finished as I play around with ideas TAIL FINS I made them from Foam Board, Vellum paper (like a plastic paper). I plan to use body filler for finer detail elements in the wings. Added some Missles to the tips of the wings as in the pictures. Added a RC Jet Canopy to the slide back tray cover. Lutro0 Customs donated a Customized U.S. Power Cord Very simple Pin Stripe Details added

The Build/MOD begins: What do you mean I wasn't supposed to start the build??? I did a test layout and found a problem: Now this is debatable, to do apush pull set up 3 or 4 fans here's the problem, what do you think? Using a ECS Z77 Golden COSMOS II and Thermaltake Water 2.0 Extreme The only place to put a closed loop Extreme is upper inside case because the hoses will not reach the cpu from the bay underneath nor will the 240 radiator fit on the back and the top cover does not allow enough clearance for push pull like I want here. It wont fit above the frame and will only allow fans on top of the radiator due to memory clearence. I think I can solve this problem with this slim scythe SL12H fan, I'll update when I know. I was playing with a concept idea of the Screaming Eagle Shredding out of the front case behind the drop down slide panel. so when you slide it down the eagle and talons actually come out at you with a sound effect of a eagle scream with it. Well when I showed a few friends they joked: "does it come out every hour?" I never thought of that imagery and decided not to do this, so go ahead and laugh, it's on me and my ideas: Tear down: I Plan to enhance the WING Image of the doors so the vents need to be on the upper not lower half of the doors. I call this the LEETOOL, Lee Hancock inspired me to experiment with the doors and I had to create this to work the tabs in the doors. The hinges and latches do not line up if you switch doors so I swapped the door backing and IT WORKS!!! The vent section of the door backing will be cut out and swapped. The door with 4 vents will be cut to match the 8 vents and Lee Harrington has a door backing section with the 8 vents so I can match up the vent look. The mesh will be taken out and replaced with acrylic with stars cut out for vent holes, edge lit with golden LEDS for Gold Stars.. Depending on the looks after the vent cutting and experimenting I may or may not FLIP/SWAP/MOD the doors. Clean the case with 91% Isopropyl Alchohol I also ran the heat gun on high over the case and wipe down as I did to remove any other MFG. Oils and such 1st coating is a Adhesion promoter called BULLDOG. It's $$$ The Paint is Rust-Oleum Universal Rubbed Copper I call it Titanium Gold Flake This is my kind of Tree decorations, one friend called it my COSMOS MOBILE: 2 coats, 48hrs, wet sand 200 grit, another coat, 48 hrs, wet sand, thin spray coat, 6 hours and VALSPAR clear coat: SOB!!! DAG NABBIT!!!
The beginning: AMD released their DTX and M-DTX form factors in 2004, to answer a need for a standardised form factor like Shuttle's dual slot SFF systems. Unfortunately, like Intel's BTX, the form factor never really took hold outside of OEMs. I've been a fan of the form factor since launch, admiring it's almost M-ITX size with the ability to have 2 expansion slots. When the opportunity came up to grab one of Elitegroup Computer System's new H61H2-MV boards, I jumped at the chance. DeToX - the name derived from DTX, and the organic, natural feel of the wood as a medium for chassis work - is designed to look like an older appliance, found in someone's attic and dusted off - maybe something from the late 40's/50's. I chose the flawed sides of the wood to accentuate this, bringing out the 'used and abused' aspect of the design. The cutouts are also designed to accentuate this, not quite perfect, as if it has taken damage over the years. I will be staining the pine a darker, cedar-like tone to help with the effect. The board features Intel Socket 1155, H61 chipset, and a couple of nifty features: Great socket placement compared to most M-ITX boards: And two expansion slots! The design work started by mocking up the proposed hardware in Sketchup and in reality: (missing is the cooler, drives and power supply :P/> ) And then I began cutting the parts. The wood here is 4 and 7mm thick, 3 ply, Pinus Radiata, grown in the largest planted forest in the Southern Hemisphere (Kaingaroa Forest, just a stone's throw from where I grew up) And now for some real work. Mocking up here: I attached the side panels with 'panel pins', little 15mm long nails well suited for working with such materials. The fan here has had 5mm shaved off the frame to enable the blades to sit within the hole provided for it Where I am at now: most of the cutting is done. Need to do some tidying up, then work on the aluminium struts for the corners. All in all, I've spent 6 hours on this so far! And off I go to complete more work.
