Dark Side Machine – Project by tankian

Hello everyone the project is finish and I’m really happy with
the result, is true that the project could be finish sometime
ago but sometimes stuff dont go was planned, in the end everything
went donne and finish like I wanted.

General Conclusion

The project received a new name given to the subject I decided
to opt already in the final part of the project now being named
“Dark Side Machine”.

At the beginning I had the following ideas: simplicity,
mobility, color and functionality.

Simplicity – project through materials and tools available to all people.

Mobility – project with identical dimensions and weight of an ATX tower,
almost every weekend walk with her in the car and for now I didn’t face
any problem, 5 *.

Color – red, white and black are the predominant colors in the project
since i have followed the theme “Dark Side” of Star Wars.

Functionality – allows excellent temperatures, cable management and
easy access to inside components.

Materials used for the project were essentially:
– Square Aluminum Tube
– Corner Aluminum pieces
– Square Iron Tube
– Plates Acrylic White
– Plates Acrylic Transparent
– Rivets and “L” corners
– White and Black Paint
– Vinyl Black

In the end I used easy materials to find and use, was also one of
the main points of the project, so you can bring other people motivated
to create their own projects ate home, of course it is necessary to
spend some money, but the satisfaction of doing something ours and
overcome all of the dificultys you have is fantastic!

I want to thank Cooler Master Portugal and SilverStone Technology for
their support, without them the project would never have gotten to this point.

I want to thank especially the Sofia Mota (Cooler Master) and Karin Lee
(SilverStone) for being great people, my girlfriend Janete Lopes for
the patience and help, to Hugo Matias for help in photo shootting,
Steve Santos for patience in parts stores and all others who have
followed and supported the project a big thank you!
