  1. Cubic Inches is complete, here are the pictures -
  2. Lair of Grievous is complete, here's the final pics. Thanks for checking out my entry.
  3. For the feet - I have used the accessories that were removed from the case. Chop them up and glue bits together to make toes... Two big toes, and two little toes per foot. Paint, then attach to the existing case feet.
  4. Here's the current state of build. . The lights look quite good when lit, but I'm finding it difficult to take a good photo of them when lit. Will keep trying! A few bits and pieces to tidy up, and I will probably do something with the feet.... but it is nearing completion.
  5. So, this is what a few old mortice locks look like when you pull them apart. Some of those pieces look like letters.... Which led to this.. Which ended up like this, mounted to top of case
  6. Here's the case stripped back. Drive bays were also removed - though I seem to have misplaced a couple of photos relevant to this post. Hardware installed in photos below. For cooling, Nepton 240m radiator mounted to top of case, configured as exhaust. 2 x 200mm fans mounted to front of case (intake) 140mm fan mounted in base (intake) 120mm fan mounted to rear (exhaust) (There is also a 200mm fan mounted to the side panel, intake airflow for GPUs) Purchased one of the MARS760 new approx 1 year ago. The other was purchased 2nd hand a few weeks ago. Turns out that they have consecutive serial numbers! I guess they were always meant to be together
  7. Hardware: Motherboard - Asus X99 Sabertooth CPU - Intel Core i7-5820k GPU - 2 x Asus ROG MARS760-4GD5 RAM - G.Skills Ripjaws 4 DDR4 2400Mhz (4 x 4gb) PSU - EVGA Supernova 1200 P2 SSD - 256GB Samsung 950 Pro M2 CPU Cooler - Coolermaster Nepton 240M As General Grevious has four arms and fights with four lightsabers, one would assume quad sli to be an appropriate setup for his lair.
  8. Front Lower section is removable for access to dust filter
  9. Left hand side The 3 'balls' on either side are made from clear casting resin. I've used an ice cube tray as a mold. Coat the mold with a thin layer of olive oil to stop the resin from sticking. Once resin has cured, remove from mold and wash the oil off. Paint with a translucent paint to act as a diffuser - I have used Montana Gold "Magic White" I have drilled a small hole into the back of these, as small LED lamps will be inserted.
  10. Ok, so it seems this works better if you upload the pictures elsewhere, and use the image button to embed them? Right hand side. The tubing is done with 3mm diameter polyurethane tube. Thread some wire into the tube, then bend it into shape. Use a lighter to heat the tube for tighter bends. Prime with plastic primer, then paint. When paint is dry, glue into position.
  11. Right side panel Using a sheet of 2mm thick foam rubber, mark out design, then cut Glue the pieces onto case panel Paint, and add more pieces More paint, more pieces
  12. This is a case mod based on an episode of Star Wars - The Clone Wars. Series one, episode 10. "Lair of Grievous" . The case I am modding is the CM Storm Sniper Black Edition
  13. Left side panel- Right side panel- Couple of gifs to demo the internal light show
