Thread: NZXT KHAOS CASE MOD BIO-MECHANICAL

    NZXT KHAOS CASE MOD BIO-MECHANICAL

    Mnpctech.com is doing a new project, a bio-mechanical theme with the NZXT Khaos. I ordered this medical model skull as my starting point.

    I ordered this medical model skull as my starting point




    I contacted NZXT about getting another HD cage (shown here)


    Heres the entire bay assembly removed from the chassis.




    Everything will grow out from the skull, it's my starting point for everything morphing out. This is the housing from a small motor I found. I love the design. The skull will be hosting the system Power & Reset switches (22mm & 16mm lamptron vandal switches, w/orange leds) The mounting plate I made (below) attaches to the upper half of the skull.





    I'll be implementing a lot of plastic wire loom, heres 1" loom inserted up the nose, HR GIGER style


    Adding more mechanical details to the skull, 1/8" Black opaque acrylic will serve as skull plate


    Holding over heat gun


    After the acrylic is flexible, I can bend it to follow the curvature of it's forehead


    8/32 socket head screws fasten on the skull plate

    Thanks dudes! the plate is a motor housing, as i stated in the post.. :lol: This was a preview of how the front air intakes will look, but 10 times bigger, minus the dimples and claws in the base. This was a prototype for computer case feet I made last year.



    GIGER has been my biggest influence since I was a kid, but I don't wanna copy his work entirely, that wouldn't be fun... I just wanna draw influence from it, mix it up a bit, ya know?

    The new 120mm intakes are finished, cnc milled from 1-1/4" thick, 6061 aluminum. 6.5" O.D.
