    Default Star Trek Case Mod: "TRICORDER CHIC" ..Winner Listed on Ebay for $8,000

    Maximum PC has a presence at Comic-Con every year as an outreach opportunity—to let the hardcore comics and sci-fi fans know that PC enthusiasm goes hand-in-hand with that kind of fandom. This year we’re using our booth as an opportunity to show the fans at Comic-Con how awesome a great case-mod can be and how PC geekery and sci-fi enthusiasm can meet in a beautiful way. So we’ve hired the best guys in the business to design and build an awesome Star Trek-themed PC, and we’ll be giving one away at Comic-Con and the other one will go to David Gerrold in exchange for some writing he’s doing for us in relation to Comic-Con.





    Conceptual Designer: Mike Okuda is graphic designer who has worked on Star Trek series since the 1980s and is responsible for much of its visual style, including the LCARS interface as seen on Next Generation.




    Matt Jefferie's original design of the Tricorder served as Mike's inspiration for the "Tricorder Shiek" computer case
    design.




    3D design of "Tricorder Shiek" by Dave LaLopa



    Top panel and storage compartment



    Top panel will be milled from 2" thick 6061 aluminum



    This Lancool K-58, manufactured by Lian Li will sacrifice it's chassis to this project.



    Lancool K-58 chassis will be painted Matte Black Enamel.



    Using Rounded side hand file to smooth the cut edges.



    Using Red Scotch-Brite pad to scuff the surface in preparation for Primer base coat.



    Lancool K58 chassis painted Matte Black Enamel (1 for david, 1 for comic-con)
    Machined aluminum computer case feet, http://www.mnpctech.com/ITX_MATX_Com...Case_Feet.html






    Machined aluminum computer case feet with grooved edges.



    The aluminum feet are machined on CNC Lathe.



    The bare aluminum is nice contrast to the Matte Black.





    #10 x 5/8" Black Oxide Fan Screws, http://www.mnpctech.com/thumbscrew.html





    Screws will be used in conjunction with fan silencing rubber grommets, http://www.mnpctech.com/FanGrommet.html



    #10 x 5/8" Black Oxide Fan Screw inserted in rubber grommet



    Yate Loon Blue LED 140mm cooling fan (1 of 2)







    Lian Li Tool-Less PCI Card Holder, 7 x PCI Holder. Works with many Lian Li cases or other modified cases. Specifications: Tool-Less PCI Card Holder, 7 x PCI Holder. Designed for Most of Lian Li Cases. Dimension (W)70mm x (H)145mm x (D)30mm

    The K58 is one of my all time favorite cases. I love how you can pop off the bezel and top within seconds...

    Hi Bill
    When samples become available, I'll have to put in a request to review the 400R you helped design, thanks for the update!
