  1. It's Alive !!!

    The Structural and Hardware are in place and running...
    The Lament Configuration Puzzle Box LIVES !!!

    The Case is 100% Custom and hand made by me of Pine. The PC components are as follows

    Shuttle AK39N Motherboard
    AMD XP 2000 1.67 GHz CPU Chip
    Evercool Aluminum & Copper CPU Cooler
    256MB of SDRAM DDR PC1600
    24" Red Round IDE Cables
    Custom Made LED light system
    ATX Power Supply Extension Cable
    NVidea MX 400 64 MB AGP Video Card
    Generic DVD ROM
    40 Gig Hard Drive (do not remember the maker)
    480W Dual fan ATX Power Supply

    Oh, and to answer the #1 question or comment (Airflow/Heat) There is a very large in-take fan under

    the motherboard, the PSU has a flow-thru dual fan system and there is an out-put fan in the upper

    back left corner

    Now comes the fun part, the artistic insides... I will post the 100% complete version as soon as it

    is done !!!

    Quite nice indeed.

    I'm wondering if chains jump out of it once you figure out the puzzle...:dead:

    Take a picture of the side with the PSU sticking out. I'd like to see how you disguised the cable and generally kept that under wraps (if at all).

    The CDROM drives too, if you would...

    PSU Cables

    The PSU cables were all extened in order to be able to hide them. and to protect the equipment, I sleeved all of it with black expandable sleeving... I will get a pic soon...

    very nice design, Mod_Man_1; you must have some interest in the far east, and it's nice to make something come alive! One bit of advice (very optional) would be to recess the ceiling of the case creating room between the outside of the top of your case and the gold design plate. This way your could hide outflow fans in the top of the case and create a low-to-high flow system making better use of the fan you installing under your MB. And the gold designs on the outside would conceal your fans in the top of the case. Very cool looking though!!! Excellent design!
