Something exploded in Christopher's computer at one time. He never bothered fixing the hole.

1/4" thick White acrylic sheet with District 9 sign will be the grill for 2x 200mm top fans

We cnc milled the grill, but If you have custom laser cutting needs, I suggest contacting http://www.vintagelaser.com

Today I worked on the acrylic plates for the right hand side panel. I used the barrel engraving bit to create cracks around the hole.

Here is some screen shots taken from the movie trailer on Youtube. I think it's important to have the prawn canister implemented into the case. If Cooler Master had requested watercooling, it would been fun to make a reservoir based on the canister, but the system will be air cooled. We have some 2" diameter solid rod on hand we could use to re-create something close to it. I have some ideas, but want to have it my hands first before I commit to them.

These are the diamond knurl machined aluminum case feet shown in the original concept. The 840 comes with feet, but these fit the industrial theme. The only modding necessary was drilling out the existing threaded holes with 3/16 drill bit for 8/32 screws included with diamond knurl feet.

Started on the paint last night, White and Orange segments, Thanks for the keys to the shop from Brad

Image

Image

The "Pumpkin" Orange color was done first. The perimeter of the " exploded hole" will be airbrushed with a burned surface effect

Once everything is assembled, all of the details like weathering, graphics, and effects can be airbrushed on the exterior like the concept drawing.

Image

Left side panel, the hole will have burned effect airbrushed on later
Image

Right side panel
Image

Cooler Master sent over 3x 230mm red led fans, 1x for front intake, 2x top exhaust
Image

Image

Image

The 840 normally comes with Black frame 230mm fans, no leds.

I wonder...

How well would a fan go in that huge hole? Black, unlit should be best.


As for the canister? Perhaps using it as an external LCD display case.

maybe wires hanging out would be fun. I've had this .5" x 25" flexible conduit lying around, I've always wanted to use it for routing cables. It fits the industrial theme. I've also got .25" i.d. flexible conduit.
