Well, the wife wants me to mod her rig.  It's a Corsair 600T with a I7 4770 on a Gigabyte Sniper board, 16gb Corsair Vengeance ram, Gigabyte 780ti, and RM 650 psu.  I will be adding water cooling and some mods ;) 

ENERMAX was kind enough to support this project with their LEPA Chopper Advance fans!  Thank you ENERMAX!

mounting them was tricky.  i used tape to hold them in place while i drilled oles and screwed them in.  I used plastic spacers i got from home depot.

I decided the front of the tree needed some modification.  I was wishing I cut it before I bent it, but it worked out and I think it looks great.  I used some nice white pearl cast acrylic from TAP plastics.

Ha! You acetone'd plexi. I bet the paint is on that shroud REALLY GOOD now.

What do you have planned for the bottom of the tree trunk? The way it just kind of 'ends' doesn't look right to me. It might look better if you cut it to match the lines of the case edge. (on second thought. I think you may have already done that.) The way the branches wrap around worked really well, BTW.

-And you made me check Delvie's for pearl plexi AGAIN! :laugh:

Edit: Even worse, I found one of the old sites that I tried before finally set up a web store.

lol thanks guys.  ya i am not a huge fan of how the trunk ends either but at this point I am just trying to get it together enough to take to PDXLAN in a few weeks.  Seems like every time I am modding up until i put the rig in the car to leave for lan lol.  I got the pearl acrylic from TAP plastics.

duuuuude, shes gonna LOVE it...  and that Citrus Green paint looks awesome

it looks so good because I used a green pearl on top of it.  I am really lovin having an airbrush.  Ron Lee Christianson is suppose to come over soon to give me some pointers.

That came out great. I don't know how to feminine, so that part may be up to debate. Mentally, I compare these things to the trinkets you made in Kindergarten for Mother's Day: They probably look hideous to a woman, but it's the giving that counts.

-Make her something out of Play-Doh for your anniversary, and she'll probably strangle you though. :laugh:
