Hello again.

Today I fitted a flow indicator into one of the back pillars so it can be seen from the inside of the case, I also added 2 micro switchers to the bottom front of the case, One switch has a green LED, and the other is blue, One switch will be for the power and the other will be the reset, the blue LED will be the HDD drive light, and the green will be the power light.

Hello again everyone, Just a small update I have made a dust filter for the GPU as well, That slides out for the side of the pillar for cleaning. And added the mesh. I have done more to the GPU mount. But will have some updates on the weekend.
 
I have also change the logo it needed redoing the old one was bugging the crap out of me, and the new logo can now be easily made on a CNC or laser cutter if need be. :)

Hello Again,

 Still progressing on the Power Cell. I have been adding more details to the outer rims of the case, Still a lot more to do there. I have now also added the lower I-beam arms.  As well as the outlet for the GPU. I will be doing all the side covers for the top and bottom base over the next week. Getting much closer to having it ready for paint.

Thank you enRodjavel, I'm glad your liking the build process, I would love to add more step by step pics and give more info but time has it's limits for me at the moment, And I'm not able to work on it full time. But I am looking at build custom PC cases full time later on. :)

Hello again.

Starting to add some lighting to parts of the case. before I start looking at the painting things I need to make sure it's all working and fits. And once all the painting is done. I will fit all the light FX to it again.

 This bit is for any one that likes playing with electronics. I have not done this for some time my self. But it's time to do some soldering again. The top dish of the case will have a ring around the outside edge. The plastic around the outside is a translucent white. So the light can be seen the rest of the case is made of a solid white, and will be backed with black paint. This part of the case will pulsate with light behind it.

Power Cell light test.

 

 I ended up changing out the PCB's to RGB  LED tape. I just made up a inner ring to run the tape.

Still need to blacken out the inside to stop any light bleeding out.

Hello again time for a new update,

Below is the curving process I used to get the sides done, I placed the inside a thin sheet of alloy that will hold the curve that's needed and heat it up with a heat gun till it forms the same shape then let it cool. After this I have cut a window out and added mesh to it. Still work in progress.

Its so nice! You make custom fabrication look easy! (Don't you dare say that it is )

Is the covering over the mobo something you did or a monoblock type deal?

Edit: I looked back to answer my own question.  SO nice!!!!
