Default Project HELIOS - Invocation Begins 10.01.10

HELIOS, the Titan god of the sun. Tireless is he who is like the deathless gods.
As he rides his chariot, he shines upon men, and piercingly he gazes with his eyes from his golden helmet.
Bright rays beam dazzlingly from him, and his bright locks streaming from the temples of his head gracefully enclose his far-seen face.
A rich, fine-spun garment glows upon his body and flutters in the wind: and stallions carry him.
Then, when he has stayed his golden-yoked chariot and horses, he rests there upon the highest point of heaven, until he marvellously drives them down again through heaven down to the lasting earth.


Design Features:
- Crafted from the worlds highest grades of composite materials and carbon fiber.
- Showcasing some of the finest watercooling components and computer hardware.
- Designed to hide every fastener, nut and bolt.
- A lack of case windows leave the motherboard bare and exposed.
- High-tech and specially engineered ceramic foam filters and stainless steel mesh keep out dust.
- Made from virtually indestructible panels over 8MM thick.
- Taking advantage of air pressure zones to keep hardware dust-free.
- Fully removable motherboard tray without disconnect or power-down.
- Highly modular design makes part-swapping as simple as possible.
- Sleek minimalist design is a call back to swiss modernism and bauhaus principals.
- Design and fabrication methods tailored to an extreme rapid fabrication cycle.
- HELIOS is to be a scratch build mod, truly, like no other.
