    NVIDIA ION CUBE by cheapskate and mnpctech

    Thanks from me too!
    I'll say it again... I hope they do this again, but make it international. I love the nerd porn these competitions generate.

                Thanks for the posts everybody!

                Man, I think it's hit every tech blog out there, including Maximum PC. I'm soo happy that I'm hosting the photos on mnpctech's server, my 3dpixel account where I normally host my photos would have an epic FAIL. I do plan to build another one for myself, an alien spaceship theme

                Today I'll be dismantling it so i can ship it to cheapskate safely

                    Enjoy the publicity and fame Bill, you deserve it. An excellent build, spot on execution, and amazing detail.

                    Kudos cannot be heaped on enough....

                      I got some stuff in late last night.
                      First, here was box one:

                      -Whee! Ion Motherboard!

                      -Oops! Scratch that. It's spare parts and install discs.

                      -Under that was the base with the power brick.

                      -Box two. This kills me. Bill packed the sh*******t out of this stuff. This is a full atx case box.

                      -Box two unpacked. There was a handy styrofoam carry tray in the box too.

                      -Inside box three, wrapped in 5 layers of bubble wrap, was another box.

                      -Inside that box was more bubble wrap. At this point I thought he had sent me an empty box to unwrap, just for a cruel laugh.

                      -I think the fan guard would have arrived safely even if it had been dropped from 50,000 feet.

                      -I'll figure out what to do with the three foot pile of bubble wrap in my rumpus room later. -Maybe an audio re-enactment of Pearl Harbor...

                      -Don't you hate that. The instructions are in Japanese! I may never get this back together.

                      -I don't think this part got enough fanfare. I essentially gave Bill a vague angle and said 'wing it !' What he ended up with is absolutely fantastic!

                      -Here's how far I got on it last night. Stuff got moved and tweaked. I'm going to add all the stuff that didn't make the deadline.

                      Thanks again, everyone!

                        ROFL!

                        Either Bill has a really sick sense of humor, or he's getting back at you for the insane design you made him build.

                            :lol: My first Thanksgiving present.
                            @Bod - I think his shipping it disassembled was the attempt at revenge. I have no clue how he got in there to disconnect the CCFLs. Thank God I have various surgical tools to do the wiring.

                              -I milled a few spacers and stuff that was missing. -Oh, and Modders-Inc. Say hello to Bananaman!:mrgreen:

                              -I widened the hole in the 2nd layer for the power switch, and made myself a ring in the process.

                              -I figured out if you polish the rough mill cuts, they match the laser cuts pretty close.

                              -I added some glue to the spacers. This was a problem area because of only one screw hole. -Who is the idiot that designed this thing? :roll:

                              -While I was on a roll, I got a crazy idea in my head. It was so crazy, I took this pic in anticipation of disaster. -Note the block of wood wedged in for support.

                              -Somehow, I managed to pull it off. Some of the holes are a little oblong...

                              -The green peeking through the paint looks really cool.
                              I'll let the thread sleep until the new batch of plexi ships.

                                I think a little of both...

                                Looks like you are putting on the final touches!
