Here's some examples of what rust looks like

this one looks especially cool, and could be done in a number of ways such as peeling up dried paint and spraying glue on it to "freeze" it.

This would be great for a HL2 look.

If you wanted the sci-fi look, mos deff take Zero's advice about Giger. You could probably mould that stuff, rather than looking like mud, to make pipes going everywhere. eg:


Also, the front of the case has no modding which looks very inconsistent and unfinished... just saying, if you wanted something really nice, you gotta put the effort in. Hope I didn't come across as harsh, but I think you could do better.

LOL no harsh feelings man. i know what ya mean with the front. i didnt want to spend any more tiem because i wanted to get my rig up and running. i had all the parts so i wanted them in there. if i would have done something to the front, it might look all weird or weirder than it all ready is. i like the hammered steel paint look on the front. that bondo took forever to do,along with painting it. any way yeah some people dont like it and some do. no biggie. those rust pics are tight, but im no artist. but my cousin did paint the XPS dell pc's for them. there are only a few of them from dell with his paint job.

Just wait for the day when you knock your drink into the computer. :lol:

Finaly got a decent looking setup, and a descent cpu/etc..


Thats the full case shot.


The guts of the machine.

Heres one final shot of the system with a little longer exposure/no-flash

Greasy Jun 23, 2007 05:31 PM

Just put this together yesterday. I need some cable extenders, so the wiring is crap for now. Also need to shorten one of the lines in my loop, so that I can install the graphics cooling adapter that came with the case.

The radiator cut turned out pretty well I guess. My first time cutting anything other than a circle in a case. :p

One nice thing about being tall, I can reach them comfortably.

Anyway, Im still on the lookout for a nice desk. This one is from my apartment where I had limited room. I'd like to find one with a nice wide and large keyboard and mouse pullout thing, because I cant stand it when my mouse and keyboard are on different levels of the desk.

Otherwise. Thanks. :up:

Actually no, I don't know. How exactly do you go about accidentally burning a CD?

Honestly, I've never had a problem with it. I don't burn a ton of CD's. When I do, and I know I will be burning a ton in a row...I take the door off the hinges and place it next to the desk. Takes literally less than 2 seconds. I really prefer the clean look of a case with a door on the front, it's so much better looking. All the drive bays, fan controllers, floppy drives or whatever else is too busy for me. It need to look simple and clean.

I feel the same way. I eventually found the desk I'm using now, and it's absolutely perfect. Honestly, there is not one single thing I would change about it. It's huge (L-shaped), sturdy, and has a TON of space for anything.

Considering the lack of ribbon cables, I don't think you'll have to sweat it too much, I don't see much in the way of airflow disruption going on there. I think you'll be just fine as is. Looks good btw :D

CR2500 Jul 12, 2007 08:53 AM

what happened to your G5 in that first pic?

Dr Gonzo Jul 12, 2007 09:34 AM

^^ HAHA, that's an MX518 and for whatever damn reason, logitech chose that kind of finish for it.

moshpit Jul 12, 2007 01:13 PM

Yeah, they look damaged. It's on purpose tho. They're supposed to look that way...

TRD Supra Jul 12, 2007 03:25 PM

Logitech sent it to me for free when my MX510 right click started messing up.:)

Except for the hard drive. Why not mount it in the lower compartment? It is blocking a lot of airflow going to 8800 installed where it is.

Also, those power cable are all jammed right behind the video card. (Right where it brings air in).

Hard drive blocking airflow, or being cooled directly? You have such a glass is half empty way of looking at things...

And your wrong actually. The intake for his 8800 is at the bottom of the heatsink the way it's sitting, putting the HD in the lowest cage section would put it right in line with that intake. Right now it's sitting above that intake by a couple of inches, and actually above the card itself. I say it's better where it's at then it would be if lowered.

I meant in the lower cage not on a lower mount in the same cage. The lower cage is the one that is directly across from the power supply in its own separate compartment. (See the second pull ring?) This compartment usually has a fan in it too.
