    I've paid particular attention to the usb port bit as I will be using this for an import part of the project:


    I've got a graphics vfd for the project from noritake :
    If you want more info on this vfd check it out here ( http://www.bit-tech.net/review/120/ )






    A quick piccy to show you what I have planned for the fan and grill

    Those watercooled PSU's are very very sexy, are they still an arm and a leg?

    £229 which is why I'm hesitating about going down that route .

    You know you want it.

    You could also go for the 350W version in a normal ATX enclosure with a slightly lower pricetag.

    Ooh mashie stop tempting me!

    I need a small psu really as I am doing away with the stock psu bay as it is where the rad is going to go. I've got a spare shuttle one which I will use to get it up and running then decide. I could just water cool the shuttle one that should be a bit cheaper to do than buying and off the shelf item.

    I look forward to this too, I love the CM 500. I am seriously tempted to buy one also as they are discontinued now.

    Hope it all goes well gordy, from your other mods I don't think you willl need it anyway.

    Its been a while since I've updated this project, and this isnt going to show much I'm afriad. I've been snowed under and haven't got all the parts in order to start the project yet.

    I have got a few things which should show you what I intend to do:

    First up is my new hard disc , its a SATA seagate drive:




    The advantage of the tiny sata cables is great. With the sata adapter I used in project silicon I won't need any nasty big ide cables.


    Next up , I can't justify the 230 ish pounds needed for a AC watercooled psu at the moment so I've gone with my trusty Shuttle ickle psu. I've also managed to source some tasty looking silver wire with which I am going to replace all the cables with. It wasnt cheap at £2.50 a meter but it looks ace. I think I may have gone a touch over board by getting 10meters of the stuff but it will do for my next project hehe .

    Hehe I cant deny it influenced me . But I've got some other sata cables that match so it made sense

    TBH I like his cabling but there is waaay too much of it I prefer the less is more approach
