Wow, if the logo is anything like the final product, it will be astounding! Time is tight but it will be worth it, so lots of luck and hope all comes out as it should.

Cheers and Saludos

P.D. Think Jeffrey will compete?

Been working in Sketchup for the last week, building a mockup of the lightcycle suitable for housing a full ATX system with watercooling. It ended up being 40" long, but relatively short. As for the design, I didn't want to make a spot-on replica of the bike, so I went with my layered acrylic method, with just a few skinned areas around the wheels and top. This allows me to hide more components inside as well. Anyway, on with the mockups:

Upon removing some layers, you can see the initial motherboard placement and other components.
Image

To give you a better idea of size, I placed a Cooler Master Cosmos case next to it.
Image

PRELIMINARY PARTS LIST

EVGA X58 Motherboard
Intel i7 965 processor
EVGA GTX570 video cards in SLI
Crucial SSD
Crucial Ballistix memory
Pioneer Slimline slot load DVD drive
Cooler Master Silent Gold 850W Power Supply (qualifying product)
Dual bay reservoir by Primochill
Other watercooling parts TBD

I'm planning something special for the front radiator, more on that later. ;-)

So that's the basic plan, I'll be adding more detail as I go along. Good luck to everyone, this is going to be a great contest with many amazing entries! :D

If it is watercooled, it's a keeper!

Ok, got the acrylic parts list finalized, but before I send it off to the laser, I figured I should double check my measurements by making a 1/2-size model. I went back and rearranged some things to make room for fans and to facilitate better airflow.

Here's an overall look at the main acrylic parts. There are many more smaller pieces, spacers, and tubes that I didn't bother itemizing for the mockup.
Image

First I thought I would print out a full-size outline of the bike with a picture of the motherboard in place.
Image

Then I tested the 1:1 scale with an actual ATX board, and my qualifying product, a Cooler Master Silent Pro 850w power supply. :)
Image

Final overall length is 38".

After getting a glimpse of the actual size, I proceeded to make the 1/2 size model. I only cut out the more important layers surrounding the components.
Image

Peering down into the component area, you can see the lower IO plate.
Image

The 1/2 size motherboard with two GTX580's in SLI: :D
Image

The mobo and cards in place:
Image

Image

Image

So far so good. Looks like things might actually fit as hoped. I'll go through the parts one more time and add some cable pass-through's and tubing holes, then I can finally send it off. Next update will show the acrylic parts when I get them in. 'Til then!

An old-school mockup! My, my, as goof-proof as it gets and its looks great!
