“Zodiac” ~ An OverClocked PC
An out of this world overclocked PC modification featuring fiber optic stars.
I cut a piece of thin plywood to size with the band saw, and made cutouts for the sata connectors and power cable, then smoothed them with this little drum sander.
Here I marked and drilled a few notable constellations.
Got my fiber optic filament from The Fiber Optic Store.com of course!
Wig making, case modding, it’s all the same ~ am i right?
Here’s all the fibers glued in place and tied down. You can see the white LED illuminator bundle I made on the left. I filled up a piece of heatshrink with epoxy, and then jammed the LED’s and fiber optic bundle into each end, then heat cured it.

Also known as: A Ping Pong Ball and round beads painted with UV paint
I will attach them to the star panel using some epoxy and .035″ welding wire, here’s the supports for the Earth and the Moon.
I glued the wire in with epoxy.Painted it black with some flat black spray paint and a q-tip.
The following are a few shots with the shroud in place and the planets attached…
Truly an out of this world mod!
Awesome job Ian!
