    thanks its mdpc sleeving which is the pure best available only problem is i didnt order enough and its a pain in the but to order it in the first place since he is only open at random times in germany. Hoping i can order more and have it arrive before every thing else is done.

    yeah even getting to SEE the mdpc store has been a PITA xD

    I saw it once in the last two months and that was after me setting and alarm and viewing it through my phone on the bus !

    Can't wait to see this though and gl with getting your stuff soon o/

    Looking good there!

    Outstanding job there! cant wait to see the end result. Question? Did you custom paint the case yourself and if so what type of paint and process did you use , spray, brush or machine?

  7. #7
    thanks DG, i have not painted it yet the bottom pic is just a flash reflection its all still original till i work on paint this week. I spent my time sleeving all weekend

    This looks so advanced to someone like me who has never worked with metal. The cuts are so clean, the panels are so nicely put together.....Flcrew, you're keeping this log updated on OCN right? You better be!

    Exactly what is this? Im not bashing you or anything, but is that a computer where you build the case yourself?
    It certainly looks interesting, whatever it is

    Pretty much, yes. I'm assuming he'll be doing everything including the screw holes, fan mounts, hdd docks, front panel wiring, etc. With a custom case he can tailor-make it to his exact needs

    You should can find heaps of work logs like this on OCN:

    Everything from simple stuff like sleeving to ridiculous stuff like custom cases built into desks.

    Updated with case fans and power/reset switch + hdd activity LED for the front of the case

    also the case is now primed and base coat starts tomorrow morning was a bit of a pita to prime but going to look good when its done.
    hopefully i can add some pics from the paint booth tomorrow =)


    @Xuvial - no i am not posting on overclock yet... once i have it closer to completion ill post a thread there =) im just doing it here now cause i had a few people ask me to.

    @Deltrusdisc - thanks for the comments keep them coming and yea the plan is for this to be a work of art

    you have no idea how much i want to just wrap it up right now but i work a full 45-50 hour retail job as a store manager so its a inbetween that kinda job + i am currently over seeing 2 stores at the same time so kinda doing time and half right now

    on top of the the paint booth im using is a buddy of mines, *he owns his own paint/body shop* so i had to wait till his booth was open to get it in to prime and paint starts tomorrow with 2 coats then clear coat after =)

    after paint is done i should finish with in a week

    Updated with pictures of finished paint and partial assembly. got most of the fans installed and checked power supply for fitting with horizontal mobo

    sadly my friend that did the paint missed 4 small pieces that hold the fan controller/light switches and other drive bay parts together so i have to wait a few day for him to paint those

    also im 1 fan short due to a fan being bad and needing rma so a few days for that as well.

    more updates as i get time to work on it more its starting to come together though
