  1. I've always liked the CM mod competitions, always bringing new people in the world of modding resulting to some fresh, inspiring designs. I'm currently checking out the builds and work-logs... there are lots of them, with load of pictures.... really some great builds this year. I won't be able to post a comment on each of them, but that wouldn't mean anything about me liking one more then another. I've wished I could have participated along this year, but I sadly wouldn't have the time on it. So at least, every build I'd see, will be better then my non-existing one! Well, good luck to all participants.
  2. I can still find myself surprised of the designs that people sometimes can come up with. Are those the final colors? I'd add some red to it, like at where the fans are connected to and the tail fins. Lol, the red is actually like it was in the game after googling some pictures of it. Must still have been far far away in my memory since I played it... ^^ If you're finished, don't forget to take a small video with it spinning (and flying away?)!
  3. I must say, when I first heard/read about wooden cases, they were just plain, basic square boxes... Then since a couple years, there have been more and more great designs in wood. Just by thinking about the CM mod contest participants who used wood to show incredible results. And I must say, you're well on your way, the design is there, and the build is already going quite well. The design is well thought out, you've made it yourself difficult for some parts, but it will increase the overall strength (for the weight) and it's resulting looks for sure. So let me just say, keep on going.
  4. Nice to see all these mods coming along together! I'm not able to be on the forum much to post comments, so I usually quickly look at the pictures ^^, and I've seen some very nice things! Everybody can be proud of his/her creation, heck, you make me feel like having 2 left hands... My votes are in, well, we'll know soon enough who the big winners!
  5. Motherboard BIOS may have a setting to shutdown at a certain temperature.
  6. This comparison might help you, they tested 80 greases and categorized them on performance, so you can check out what's worth it to get or not.
  7. Links are there, but I think the website where the pictures are hosted doesn't allows pictures to be used on other forums...?
  8. Never look at just 1 review, I always usually check at 2 or more of decent websites to have a good idea of the quality of a product. For example; HW secrets gives it their gold award and it performs very well if you take a look at their tests.
  9. Here's a pic of how to assemble it. The knob should be easily pulled of / slid back on, no need to turn or anything.
  10. It's looking very nice in the dark! Merry xmas!
  11. Starting to look better and better! Gota say it again, nice colors! Front panel looks great with the fan behind! Gonna place a filter behind it?If so, paint it white! lol
  12. I've seen the movie yesterday (it's superb!), so I finally understand what your mod is about. Love the paintjob, the white and orange gona look great.
  13. Lol, I saw the pic with the drill and thought, "A drill ! Better be careful not making any cracks!"...then I saw the other pictures... lol
  14. Intake, so the hot air will leave your PC by the back.
  15. That cooler was presented at CeBit and CES in 2008...and this model will not be released for the market. Those pictures are even stolen from Anandtech...so fake for sure.
  16. I'd suggest the Silent Pro M850, very good PSU and has all the cables you'd need.
  17. No, it will not work. The touch-sensitive power button can only work when it is connected on the 24pin connector as it only there can draw power of the PSU when the system is powered off. You could try modding your own 24pin connector with the extra cables (check if the rest of the cables are the same)...on your own risk.
  18. I think it isn't bad at all, this type of effect can even really occur FrenkieNL; http://www.pebblescience.org/pebble_min ... inage.html

    PSU Installation

    In both cases you can choose how you want to place the PSU inside, fan facing top, or fan facing down. In the Stacker 830, the PSU is at the top, so I'd suggest fan facing down. In the cosmos 1000, the PSU is at the bottom, and as there's a hole with dust filter under it, I'd also place the fan facing down here. (I did)
  20. Ow, I actually forgot about that stand of yours, well, should look quite good as well, and it's in acrylic, so that will give it a nice effect. greetz.
  21. Nice work, you've realy got it done! I'm also glad to see, that with the extension, you'll continue working on some extras. I was also thinking, how about a foot stand to elivate it up in the air, giving it the idea to really be flying... I quickly (very quick lol) made a model in sketchup...
  22. Finally....! Well, you've done an incredible job, very nice!
