Good job, it will make a nice side light for reading :)

i know its the manipulation of light and photography to make it look so nice in those pics, but it has to be one of my favourite case mods i've seen on bittech, tidy, well put together and looks outstanding. I wonder what it looks like in a normally lit environment and not one that suits the case lighting :P

peace

Fantastic work!

wow! nice. The part I like the most is that such great work was done with few basic tools. It is encouraging to see that you do not need a $2000 workshop. Now I will go to the work log to see the details.

Hope to see your next project soon!

I'm hanging on to my old beige square case so I have it yet once it becomes retro :D

Nice work on the mod. Very well crafted.

Off Topic: I sometimes wonder what a beige Lian Li'd look like..

Really pretty case, damn fine work.

this might be nitpicking but why did you decide on 80mm fans for the rear and not a single or even dual 120mm? you have more than enough space...

great job, congrats : )

The level of quality and attention to detail you show here, as well as your creativity is awesome. The clean lines and the perfectly finished look make this a superb mod. This is up there with the likes of ORAC3 and sanganku.

Simply beatiful!!

I love the PSU design!!!

For those of you who love the mod, please be sure to digg it and help share Design_Master's creation with the rest of the world!

Hey folks!

I have no words to express how grateful I am so far! :D
A BIG Thanks for all commendations and for all who has appreciated my project! ;)
A BIG Thanks for supporting me, Brett Thomas, Tim Smalley and all the Bit-Tech staff!
I am sure I just needed two ingredients for reaching the front page: very hard work and passion for modding! ;)

All the best!

Macroblack and Orac3 are both acrylic cases too, very good jobs but in different conceptions.

Hi my friend mrb no1!

In fact, the pictures are part of the project and everything from Lumina is planned to artistic purpose. For taking pictures, I sought for the best lighting background which would be able to show the most of Lumina details, and the horizon linking a perfect blue sky and sea was my choice. I didn’t use any lighting manipulation for daylight pictures, just my camera. Believe me, although the pictures are great, at live is much better! If you could see Lumina with your own eyes you would get what I mean. The camera lens even couldn’t capture the real lightning and bright of the project, unfortunately, but I think the quality of pictures is enough.

Thanks! ;)

In fact, the problem is the thickness. The heatsink of my old PSU doesn’t allow any 20mm thickness Fan installed on UNDER face, being 120mm or not. Therefore, as I planned to keep up the original heatsink (liked its design), I chose a 80mm fan for the FRONT face. In the future, I can change for a new PSU featuring 120mm fan. Thanks!

That is fantastic. Amazingly well thought out, no shortcuts taken, and the attention to detail is amazing. It looks sublime, astonishing work!

Hi cnvrt! Well, I planned this array of cables on purpose to enhance lighting effects. Have you seen “the light of night” pictures already? Can you notice how the cables fill the environment and increase harmonious lines to the overall lighting look? ;)
