    Modders Unite!

    Here is my concept as it stands right now..... subject to change before deadline cutoff. Currently, I only have Powerpoint mashups. I hope to get some 3D models done up for everyone to enjoy. Let me know what you like/dislike about my concept. Would love this opportunity to compete.

    This will be a reverse ATX mod utilizing a very budget conscious DIYPC Solo-T1-BK Black case (link)

    I already have some of the parts needed to complete the concept build kit. Main pieces I'd have to purchase is the case and CPU.

    Parts List - Remember.... budget friendly

    Mobo: GIGABYTE GA-MA785GM-US2H (Stolen from my PFSense router)
    CPU: Athlon II X2 220 Dual Core 2.8Ghz (Stolen from my PFSense router)
    RAM: SAMSUNG 8GB 2x4GB PC2-6400 DDR2-800 240pin DIMM (Stolen from my PFSense router)
    RAM: Corsair XMS3 DHX 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 (Stolen from my PFSense router)
    GPU: Gigabyte Radeon HD 7970 3GB Video Card (Borrowing from another local PC enthusiest
    PSU: Corsair TX650 (Leftover from latest Night Shark upgrade)
    SSD: Corsair Force 120 (Leftover from latest Night Shark upgrade)

    Thanks Chief! I think the hardest part about creating the model in Sketchup will be getting the case front designed right. So many angles.

    I found a little time to play around in Sketchup. The case isn't perfect but I'm still learning how to make complex polygons. Kudos to all the people who meticulously make PC components.

    So here's some 3D goodness for all to enjoy. As always, let me know what you think.

    Happy to see such a variety of entries. I updated the 3D models to include the EK badge on the front, and dropped the color to the true black. Also whipped up a design for sleeving the cables. Additionally added the back wall design that sits behind the SSD.

    Thanks chief. Fingers crossed that I can snag one of those concept kits so the build can begin

    One more small change. Swapped out the "30th Anniversary" on front badge for their 30 logo.

    So small update, I've been able to scrounge some Gigabyte parts together. They are nothing fancy but should be enough to meet the requirements. If I can scrape together the money to buy the case, expect updates almost every day once I receive the case.

    So I went through my parts to take inventory of what I have to put toward this build, so far it looks good. Not sure about the blue paint though.... it's a little more sky blue than I'd like. I might have to pick up some new blue paint that matches my electric blue of my sleeving. Speaking of sleeving, still have several feet left over from my Night Shark build that I can use to spice things up.

    I went back and cleaned up the 24 pin, and am supergluing the 4 to the 20 pin. I have older power supplies if I find a motherboard that only has 20pins.
