    .:istrict 9::. PRAWN PC 2010 CES mention with M-I&qu

    Cool, glad you dig it Sniper

    There will be an MNU logo painted on this optical drive. Christopher likely traded something towards it, so he could view cd rom archived files from MNU perhaps?



    More rust effects occur..

    The new 600W Cooler Master Silent PRO didn't look right in a POS computer, it was treated to "rust lovin" as well.

        Thanks Bro!

        Intel Core 2 Duo 3.16 GHz Processor in Intel DX48BT2 Motherboard sent from Cooler Master.



        I'm looking at this Cooler Master HYPER N620 and wondering ""What Christopher do differently with it?"

          Bill you should venture into water-cooling in some of these projects. Things like the canister really would lend themselves well to it. Come get wet!!

            Yes, I told Cooler Master that already. They want it air cooled for CES.

            I wanted to direct the cooler air entering the front of the case to the cpu cooler. The 5.25 bay covers were removed to highlight the canister movie prop we made. It dawned on me that a fan duct could be mounted to a 120mm fan by modifying a 120mm round mesh fan grill. In the past, I would mold the fan duct into the front bezel with body filler, but this method is much easier and more versatile.

            This method can be combined with 4.5" flexible tubing to isolate cool airflow. Imagine one end of the tube attached to a 120mm cooling fan in front of your case.
            The 4.5" Flexible tubing can be found at Mcmaster, http://www.mcmaster.com/#duct-hose/=4zltce or you can "try" the "Heating & Cooling" department at hardware or home improvement stores like Home Depot or Lowes.

            Using a paint pen to trace the duct onto the round mesh grill.


            a small wire cutter and Tin snips used to cut the 4.5" opening in the 120mm Modder's Mesh Round fan grill


            You'll need to use the small wire cutter first, to make the initial cut before you can use the Tin Snips to cut the 4.5" hole.


            Using Tin ship to cut the round mesh grill.


            The result of you cutting should look like this.




            120mm cooling fan. This fan has enclosed corners, you will need longer fan screws if you're mounting the fan onto something like a cpu cooler.

                    Here is the Prawn canister installed, I've added a 4" White cold cathode light between the front intake plate and bezel.

                          The lighting needs to be dimmed down a bit,for a more eerie looking feel

                            MERRY CHRISTMAS!

                            I've gotta keep plugging away at this, so it's finished in time to be shipped to Vegas for the 2010 CES.

                            Whats this? It's a cannibalized Mitron Interlink, 3.5" bay fan controller

                              Mnpctech Painter, Brad Galvin starts the transformation from pristine to weathered and dilapidated. He starts by creating the illusion of a scratched-up exterior, imagine Christopher dragged his computer in the gravel. Did he have to wrestle it away from somebody at one time?

                              The Orange & White exterior finish has been scratched done to the bare metal. This is done by hand using enamel "One Shot" Silver paint and a paint brush.







                              Notice the paint is chipped around the bullet holes.

                                Brad has painted a variety of Prawn insignia, language and graphics by hand. The bolts are given weathered effects. Christopher left his PC out in the rain. ....Acid rain perhaps?



                                There was an expolsion in the right side panel at one time.
