    When you open the article, it shows there are 14 comments, but all of those belong to the last months rig. While if you just click on the 0 comments on the front page, it gets you here. Strange....

    I dont like the color combination kinda looks like cheap car tunning, but other than that the rig is solid and i have much respect for the work done there.

    Congrats on winning, and the Titanfall series are my favourite games! For me the highlights of this rig are the bullet holes in the back panel and the seperate white & orange reservoirs that somehow remind me of some kind of a charging system or maybe the hydraulics of a titan!

    Very cool, one of the best ROTMs in a while. Though, I feel like this is begging for another GPU - so much room for activities next to the other one! Might as well considering how you have 2 massive reservoirs.

    Wonder if....

    Say "Hil'Be'H", have you ever thought about having the winner stay around for a short QnA? There are a couple of questions that come up with such a different mod. Like how did he make the clear see through scuplted panel with the orange and white coolant flow channels. Looks like he used a router to create the channels in plastic, but its soo clear that the how's would be cool to know.

    And how did he manage to hide the IO panel? Gotta be something different. What are the lil oled/lcd displays? Not huge on the color scheme but major prop's to the build. How about it? Get the winners to devote a little time to the guys that would like a bit more information. Or just maybe a personal congrats.

    thanx.

    I was wondering this too. I figured he took 2 acrylic panels, used a CNC machine to create the channels on each side, did a lot of polishing. Since the liquid is opaque, he probably didn't have to make it perfect, as it would fill in the imperfections anyway.
    As another option, perhaps he just took 1 acrylic panel and cut the channels all the way through. Then used some laminate to hold the now 3 separate pieces together, where the gaps in between is where the liquid flows. With the the rigidity and funky shape of the case, the 3 pieces should hold together just fine.

    It isn't totally hidden. If you haven't noticed, the motherboard is rotated 90 degrees. The IO ports are at the top of the tower, and there's a pretty thick buffer between the top of the chassis and the motherboard. It's hard to tell because the chassis is a lot bigger than it appears in the photos. Here's the photo of the top, where you can sort of see the IO, or at least how deep it goes:

    Hello guys. How are you.
    I'm Douglas Alves.
    I live in Brazil.
    I am grateful to see my Casemod TitanFall project, chosen in the 3d guru, thank you.

    This Casemod, as answered in the questionnaire, every process of personalization and construction, I did it myself, and everything manually, I did not use any machinery, I did not use CNC and did not use laser cutting machine.
    I leave here my worklog of my Facebook page to see how it was done step by step. OK.

    Can you look for me on my facebook that there has any project worklog
