    AMD's Bulldozer Tribute PC - FINISHED!

    Sponsored by:








    I've been running this through my head since the begining of the year. I knew that AMD would soon be releasing an eight core CPU code-named: Bulldozer. I knew I also had to do a tribute mod as well.

    I hoping to get with the stores' AMD rep and maybe acquire a sponsorship from AMD once the chip is released. Then I can fill it with components and display it in the store for customers to gawk at.

    My very first sketches have always started with the Cooler Master HAF 912.





    Within a few minutes I quickly stripped the whole thing down



    My choice of paint just has to be John Deere Yellow



    And it goes on easy and looks incredible





    I always love to have strong contrasting colors within the case



    I also strive for color consistency with matching bay drive covers too



    Then I stack two Cooler Master 120mm fans for the intake



    I didn't recolor the black plastic because it was already perfect







    I'll be customizing the right panel next



    More to Come

    Nice color choice.
    Reminds me of the 80's group Stryper.

    I'm not using the Noctua for this. Plus it'll be a while before the bulldozer pieces arrive

    Thanks!

    Time to work on the right panel. I'm going to be adding a couple of intake fans. The first is a slim 120mm behind the processor



    I cut from the inside out as to not damage the paint if I lose control of the hole saw



    My fan of choice is usually made by Scythe



    Here it is mounted. Because I went with a larger 120mm fan, I'll need to put the panel on first then screw it in place. The size of the fan interferes with the panels' slide latch



    I'll dress up the outside soon enough



    But first I'll need to cut out a spot for a 92mm fan behind the hard drive cage. Unfortunately, I don't have a hole saw that size available just yet...

    I was thinking....

    I've asked this question to some people that I work with and they all have the same answer. When you see a bulldozer how does it look? Everyone says that it looks terrible. Rusted, dirty, chipping paint, and abused. Why would I make this case appear as anything different than how a real bulldozer looks?

    I've decided to roughen it up a bit. I'll sand the paint off in some areas, and I'll be adding some stripes to break up the plain yellow patterns too
