  1. Thank you so much man! I will say though, quite a few people placed the same bet as you hahaha
  2. Thank you so much dude and thank you for sharing my work, it's much appreciated!
  3. Haven't run a 3DMark in about six years, felt a bit nostalgic https://www.3dmark.com/spy/17983105
  4. Of course, a starship wouldn't work without its very own command center! For the peripherals mod, I decided to carry on the A.R.E.S. theme and create a dedicated command center for it. The worklog is obviously available in the Peripherals Mod section, but I also want to talk about it here, as there is a specific feature that I didn't talk about before, which is the I/O cables management. From the pics, you'll see the there are pass-throughs on each side, that can be used to connect corrugated tubes to the back of motherboard tray, in proximity of the I/O ports, allowing a perfectly t
  5. And here are some beauty shots of it controlling the A.R.E.S. starship Some pics also show the system I implemented on A.R.E.S. to hide the I/O cables and carry them towards the side of the case. That kind of pass-through is available on both sides to allow a tidy wiring in both left and right configurations. Enjoy! Full res photo gallery at: https://imgur.com/a/8FA7heQ
  6. Let's get it on with this very simple worklog. The goal here was to make something that looked super futuristic and completed the look of the A.R.E.S. build. To do that, I designed some sort of XL mousepad to be cut out of 10mm acrylic, with engravings and edge lighting. Other than the main piece, three feet were cut out, to set the whole thing to a slight angle and to hold in the chromed tube through which the LED wires will run. Those feet were welded on the main piece using acetone. Once cured, I went ahead and cut the chrom
  7. Project A.R.E.S. has landed. My entry for Case Mod World Series 2020 is a tower mod based on the C700M case. I wanted to tell a story with this project: the starship used for the space program ARES, comes in contact with some sort of organic alien technology, which starts to merge with the starship, covering the external structure and contaminating the propellant. This is visually identified in the colours used (blue and copper for the alien technology, aluminum and silver for the human technology), and the lines which are more curved for the alien technology, and straight for th
  8. Gotta save some of the juice for the worklog since it's here that the magic officially happens hahaha thank you so much dude, and thank you for following along this journey from the very start!
  9. Final update is here! This will be the last post before the final pics, so let's enjoy every single word of it! Going on with the paintjob, I finished up the side pieces and installed them, together with the white dimmable LED strips. Now time to start the works in the hidden section of the case, so all around the exposed internals. Top and bottom are populated by the two 360mm radiators, while I used front and back to route the cables for power, fans, lights and pump. Of course I made the soft tubing and
  10. Oh my, I fell behind on updates... I mean... I have like 60 WIP photos and just finished the project today. Guess a marathon is coming! So, the finish on aluminum I was talking about in the last update. Basically did a brushed finish as a base and then went on random patterns with a drill and a 75mm sanding disk. Then got part of the base painted in usual copper and blue, masking off the pockets for the acrylic pillars though, since they're already super tight and didn't want to mess around with the thickness of the paint later.

  11. Hey everyone! Finally a new update, and as promised we'll take a look at the painting progress, as well some other interesting stuff. First of all I'd like to show you the resin pour safe and sound out of the mold. The fibers catch the light super well but to enhance the effect, as well as all the sparkles from the mica dyes, I will paint the back black so no light shines through except from the fibers. Now to the paintjob. I had a bit of a hard time this time because I'm using a new brand of spray cans which are pretty different to what I'm used to. Used a
  12. Hello everyone, hope you had some great holidays and I wish you all a restoring 2021! I've been absent for a few weeks, but don't worry, I was just being too lazy to update, I actually went ahead with works Let's start slow with this simple radiator mount for the top 360mm rad, made out of 5mm aluminum Next something I had to experiment a bit on. These are "fittings" that will be used to fix the corrugated pipes which will carry the cables from the hardware panel to the insides of the case. I was initially going to make them out of 5mm aluminum
