Prometheus is a Titan known for his wily intelligence, who stole fire from Zeus and gave it to mortals for their use.
Zeus then punished him for his crime by having him bound to a rock while an eagle ate his liver every day only to have it grow back to be eaten again the next day.
His myth has been treated by a number of ancient sources, in which Prometheus is credited with playing a pivotal role in the early history of humankind.

On the Periodic table of elements the symbol for Copper is CU

In a light hearted way, and in the early phases of the design of this case I stated to friends and associates that this project will be better than the discovery of fire, eventually the name held.

I wanted the case to have the initials P and C, because the case I started with is a Lian-Li PC-a60c... so the case is called PrometheusCU-a60c.

In short:
PrometheusCU is a rebirth of the Titan Prometheus, and will usher us towards the next phase of mans evolution. hehe... I almost got that out with a straight face.

It was, it was very much fun indeed. i hope everything goes as planned as well... there have been SO MANY DELAYS. Initial target completion was August.

I found some batteries... I had a stash apparently (a stash of batteries, that is).
(Does anyone else here hide things on themselves and forget where?)

Many pics...

First up, G.Skill 64GB SSD - there are THREE more of these babies coming to me as soon as NCIX gets it's **** together.









Molex Connectors galore. I plan on using my own wiring throughout so I need custom plugs - I'm not looking forward to wiring this Beast TBH.
Internal 2x5pin USB header plugs:




3pin fan plugs:




6pin Molex plugs:





8pin Molex plugs:





24pin ATX Molex plugs:





A Bitspower "Q" fitting... that still isnt the right variety, I'll have to head over to Parker Fluidline to get what I want (I may have to make it myself):




Some cable clips, that will hold the GFX power lines parallel to the motherboard tray:




The clear tubing that will be used as "windows":




Four 6' black eSATA cables for my external drives:





A couple more bitspower fill stops:




Some 4pin floppy plugs:




The hose clamps that I ordered before discovering Evil-98's clamps:





50 black rivits, because my local SB Simpson had none:




4 Sata Molex connectors, punch down style - 2kinds - terminated end, and open end:





Two AC Ryan "backies" or whatever they called them. Sata > eSATA backplane adaptor:





4 Sata2 cables with 90degree ends:





Some 1" heatshrink, because I forgot to get some from CableOrganizer.com (probably for the best, because I don't need another 200' spool of the stuff)



And PINS! "Who knows how many... maybe a million... maybe more - nobody knows really" (slightly adapted Jeremy Clarkson circa Supercar Showdown... that tubo scene was funny):





Performance PC's did forget to pack my 10x female molex plugs, but can you blame them... there was over 200 items in that box afterall.

*PHEW* that's a lot of stuff... and I GET TO PUT IT ALL TOGETHER, jealous? I wouldn't be.. Hahaha.

That's all for today, I've been busy this evening fixing my Old Man's Laptop - and HP really really isn't bit on quick disassembly.

Thanks for reading, tune in this evening for some progress.
