Gallifreyan, Its bigger on the inside. Pics of Finished Airbrushed Case on pg 3

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Was going to wait until I had the case painted but little excited, I have built way to many computers, but never did one as a theme.

 

I have been watching Doctor Who since I was 5 in the mid 1980s I am a huge fan of the show. This build will showcase that. This is most likely a 4 month process to complete, sooner if I get this promotion at work.

The case is the first part I have purchased, I chose the NZXT S340. I picked this case because it was the perfect blank canvas and well its compact enough and will be like a Tardis "bigger on the inside". The case once it arrives is going straight to my airbrush artist, who is giving me one hell of a deal on painting it because he is excited about this concept. It will have a blue space them with help from handy dandy gallifreyan translater some words/sentences in gallifreyan over the space theme with a celestial look. The PSU shroud will have the crack in time painted on it, and the cable management bar will have the DW logo painted on.

So the first update to this will be the photos of that.

 

Here is a pic the paint around case will be based off of to get the idea but in blue

Purchased

MOBO - Asrock z97 extreme6

CPU - Xeon 1231v3, why for if watercooling..because though watercooling, that is just for looks, I have zero care to overclock, so rather save money

PSU - EVGA Supernova G2 750w

GPU - 2x Asus Strix 970s

Ram -Gskil Ripjaws 16gb kit in blue

SSD - Won a kingston SSD going to use that, already painted blue waiting on ordering stickers to go on it. Also will be getting a 1tb laptop hdd 

 

To be purchased

Cooling - Custom watercooled loop with Primochill CTR phase 2 and EK blocks for CPU and GPU. Rads in front and one in back. Rigged tubing

 

 

 

and of Course, I will use a Sonic Screwdriver, Real Screwdriver to put it together.

Looks like a great build and can't wait to see it done. I am a doctor who fan as well so this will be awesome.

Can you change your text to automatic color though? For use on the dark/night theme it is very difficult to read.

You could use mirrors to make the inside look bigger.


I cannot be held responsible for any bad advice given.

I've no idea why the world is afraid of 3D-printed guns when clearly 3D-printed crossbows would be more practical for now.

My rig: The StealthRay. Plans for a newer, better version of its mufflers are already being made.

Computer's don't make errors. What they do, they do on purpose. By now your name and particulars have been fed into every laptop, desktop, mainframe and supermarket scanner that collectively make up the global information conspiracy, otherwise known as The Beast.

 

You just be careful. Computers have already beaten the Communists at chess. Next thing you know, they'll be beating humans.

Glad I am not the only Doctor Who nut..I am going to figure a way to incorporate the 4th doctors scarf into the build somehow

I really don't get the deal with the scarf lol. Then again I don't like any of the doctors before number 9

 

My favorite Dr. Who moment.

I need this in my life...

 

Also, I do some Circular Gallifreyan writing with my girlfriend, and she made a small business out of it. Here's a few pictures of our stuff-

Case arrived on Friday. 

Sunday it is going in for paint. The airbrush artist is very excited to get started on this..

Should have a week or so turn around he said...

 

The centerpiece of this build is the artwork and it will be Fantastic!

 

I do like how I got Linus to mention this build on #mod24, and I could have sworn I heard Luke say that "it is on the forums"
