  1. This is my biggest project for the Raspberry Pi. Spent MONTHS designing this, and over 100 test prints of various parts. This is essentially the final product. I may or may not add more to it later. If you have any questions, let me know. If you have ideas or suggestions for the next version, I'd love to hear them! Parts list below the video: This project wouldn't have been possible without the help of ModMyMods.com and their perfect little Raspberry Pi Cooling Kit. Stop by their website and find the parts to keep your next project cool!

  2. I wanted to create a PC that utilized water in a way I had not seen before. I've seen Bubble Walls in stores (Fry's Electronics), aquariums, and shopping malls, but never a desktop PC. The idea was to combine the two elements to make the Bubble Wall PC. The focus would not be on the PC inside (older system I had lying around) but rather a proof of concept to be revised in the future. If the system should fail, i'm not concerned about it in the least. The biggest challenge will be not allowing the system to leak. WATER = BAD FOR ELECTRONICS and that is what makes this project risky and exciting (It's distilled water, but potentially dangerous nonetheless). The power supply in the NZXT S340 is elevated so should a leak occur there will be no shorting of power (great unintentional design, NZXT). PARTS LIST: NZXT S340 case w/ system Sunbeamtech Rheosmart 6 channel fan controller 20 x 1/8" to 1/4" polycarbonate barbed reducing couplings 1/16" acrylic sheet 1/8" acrylic sheet 12ft 1" square extruded acrylic tubing 50ft 1/8" ID PVC tubing WELD ON 3 acrylic adhesive Super Glue
  3. Dark Matter Scratch Build: Who am I? A bit about me; a few years ago I suffered a traumatic brain injury that caused my brain to hemorrhage. After spending a long time in intensive care I kept thinking about case modding. Before long, its all I could think about. After recovering from my injury I was left with epilepsy and brain that no longer functioned like before. I started to look at things differently. Inspiration for mods began to pop up in the oddest places. I eventually became overthrown with modding ideas and designs. Soon I decided it was time to start. Theres nothing quite like being in the grocery store and yelling, “thats it, 45 degree angles” and then running out of the store like a mad man. No matter what I was doing, it all kept coming back to case modding. Today case modding is my life and it allows me to be truly happy. For some case modding is a hobby but, for me its a lifestyle. And So It Begins: Why: I decided to do this scratch build, “Dark Matter” for several reasons. I was tired of limiting my mods to the confines of a mass manufactured case. There are a ton of great cases out there but, I wanted to do something my style from the ground up. The design phase began once I started getting close to completing the StarCraft Day Zero case. However, a lot of the main features for this build have been planned over the last year. During the scratch build I will be using new modding techniques as well as using materials that aren't always associated with case modding. If you like seeing original creations and have a love for the truest form of modding; you're in the right place.

  4. Victorian Desktop My wife’s laptop is no longer working happily, so she’s asked for a desktop. Well, I can’t leave well enough alone, so why would I build her one in a stock case (of which I have several laying around), when I could do another scratch build project?! This case will be another wooden scratch build, as many of my projects are. I have some old cast iron pieces that will be incorporated into this project as well. It’s going to be built out using solid mahogany, and will be finished in a way to emulate a lifetime of use. I don’t really want it to look brand new, as the cast iron parts are not, and we like the look of them as they are. A special thanks to G.Skill for sponsoring the memory for this project!
  5. We all have different kinds of desk setups and workstations, often determined by what we do with our PC's. What does your setup look like? What do you use it for? What do you like/dislike? Post your pics!
