Wow, lots of comments :p I saw this hit digg and the gadget blogs (I love how the servers just laugh at them) but still got a chuckle out of some higher than normal activity

I think that's probably related to the 30-or-so comments I removed (the song from Portal, post by post)... then Jamie physically removed after I'd soft-deleted. :p

Yeah, I was in the middle of PMing you the link when I refreshed the page and it fixed itself.

I did get a good laugh out of that too. Nothing prepares me for a Monday like Aperture Science. Is it a bad thing that I've got that song on my phone?

He started his first, but since you actually finished yours... Good job!

i'll sure be the one at the bottom of the flaming pit, waiting for this to be thrown in.

I love it.-But I REALLY loved it as a clear green. (In case you haven't noticed...I like plexi builds.:D)
The pop-top design is a simple solution to construction. You still have a functional system with the case apart.

Wow, quite a switch in themes from your last build. How many of those Epia boards have you got and what do you do with the finished builds? I'd say you're a lucky man to have such sponsors but I suspect luck had less to do with it than talent, versatility, ...

Since the only exit that I see for hot air is at the connector opening I have to ask how are the temps inside the case?

;) for speed build.
[WP@]WOLVERINE 21st January 2008, 20:28 Quote
i have no idea what the temps are but after running the system för 48 hours the case didnt even feel slightly warm to the touch so i dont think that heat will be an issue. The via board doesnt prodce much heat at all.

Looks great! Photo "20" incorrectly links to "18".

I noticed it b/c I wanted to see the AC Ryan corner cubes.

Finally, a January modding feature!

Yeah. I'd really like to see that panel stealthed as much as possible. That being said, I'm a HUGE fan of Portal, and I love it.
Makes me wish my concept of a WCC end table wasn't so expensive...

Im actually working on one of the Preassure pads in the game to have as a display stand for it :)

Now you just need to get BootSkin on there and get this one...

Then it's all Portal.

Great looking mod.

I have a question about construction. In picture 28 (top right) with the lid off. I can see screw holes in the corners of the top cover but no screw heads in the bottom corner pieces? Does the top attach to the bottom? I am looking to hide all screws, rivets on a build i have going and am just wondering how you did this.

I am probably over thinking this too much but I like the look of the solid construction without screws, bolts, or rivets everywhere.

I don't know exactly what a break out box is, but... Would it be possibly to hinge one of the panels with the heart on, and hide it beneath?

Wow.
And I thought companion cube fuzzy dice were amazing...

This is utterly amazing.

I was wondering though: is it possible to post a tutorial with measurements etc for those of us who would like to replicate this? Or a link?

Thanks, and great job!

Do you freehand the corners and heart or use a template? I love this mod. My son got me portal for Fathers day and I would like to do a mod for him.
