  8. sorry for not really advanced in the project, i hurted me saturday durin my surfing it's seems to be ok, so i might begin the front work of the casemod ( i though to make it sunday but i really can't walk or move my foot....)
  9. thanks, effectively, i use photoshop to adjust some contrast, colors,etc..
  10. i just have received some hardware, i have to go to take them to the post office, then i have until june 2 to do the maximum of work, because since the 3rd june i work as lifeguard in hossegor until 17 september. so i have to make the case ready ( without hardware inside and WC ) at least the 2nd of june ...
  11. i say that my pics wasn't pro because i'm not a professional ! ^^ however, i want to make good pics for each part of the mod, piece of hardware,etc... in this thread. for the rad, yes, it's a 3x120mm and it will be on the front of case ( not on the back, i such love his blue color that i think in front it would give a good style to the case )
  12. my toy for those pics : PANASONIC FZ30 what the case is today...before i give it some hardware, plexi, aluminium,etc... other pics : specially for the CM forum that's all for today..not so professional isn't it ?
  13. hi! the display is an alphamnumeric NORITAKE ITRON, bougt 20$ on a french luck !! it will serve me , for the T° ( CPU,HDD, and GC ) then for the winamp/ media player information, and to detail all my config inside durin some LAN ( with that display i don't have to answer people asking me " What sort of CPU do you have ? how many ram ? what's your grafic card, etC... " - now they just have to read the display to know ! ^^ ) the new hardware : BE CARREFULL ... piece of art ! , i just have received my "home made " reservoir, ( made by pierreg60 ) , i need a special reservoir with a spécifical size for this project ... just married ! the next hardware part will be pator74gb and a 250Go samsung spinpoint and a cooldrive 3 from coolermaster ( paid 5$ on a french forum )
  14. yep, i started the case design, i will receive a custom reservoir, and i wait it to get the general case design at final. so it might be in a flat position on the top : or on the bottom of case, like my first scketches...i don't know... my newVFD display , a noritake : whatthis displayu can do
