Case got back from Powder Coaters yesterday! So here it goes...


The case came out exactly the colour i wanted, but unfortunately, some parts of the powdercoating wasnt great. The were a few discrepancies, enar the areas where he needed to bolt the case down, but luckily for me, none of those areas show!

I cut out the bottom of the HDD support so that my GPU+Block could fit.

The white Pop Rivets were horrible to work with, they kept flaking, and i ahd to keep redoing them :/ must of gone through like 100! eventually i got them all in place and with minimum destruction.

where can i admire youre other work logs?
I dont have any hosted on here, but i can guide you to them if you send me a pm.

Nice update :p.
Really like your colors.
Skydrone said (translated)
Thanks for the kind words, and the translation!

I can see that you've chosen these fan purely for the looks, i just can't imagine that they will work perfectly on a radiator. Because the sides are open, i think they won't produce good static pressure.
they produce around 2.9mm h20, which is quite high! i got them for functionality. The pen sides, should pull in more air than a normal fan in this case, reason for this, is because, the case has an extra opening on the bottom in the front. and with normal fans that is pretty much blocked!

Looking great allready

[COLOR="#Purple"]So... Update time :D (Warning!!! PICTURE HEAVY UPDATE!!!!)

Just want to say Thanks to my Sponsors for making this project a reality :D


I finally got some time to work on the build and take some pics. Sleeving and RL took over the past few days, hence why this update is so delayed :D

So i went ahead and bought a small 3.5" fan controller, nothing fancy, just something to do the job and make this machine run quietly :D Ofcourse it was custome painted to match the build (although the colour is SLIGHTLY off and i got a smudge of my finger print on it :/ (i am already curretnly repainting :(), 1 tone lighter, i dont think it will be annoying, anyways, this is going to be on the side of the case that is up against the wall)

Rear Side: (for some reason i like this picture)
5742310495_3891a80271_b.jpg


Next up, i went ahead and painted the fans according to my theme. (I didnt paint the actual blades, because i was afraid of getting paint unevenly sprayed and resuklting in vibrations)

Next, i placed them on my radiator (which was also painted the same colour as the fans) and set up the stand. Looks beefy eh?

(Can Anyone figure out what i did to the picture above? :p)

Next Up: The Motherboard!

The motherboard tray has been painted white, and the back apnel is Beige to match the entire case. (Tubing is only for testing purposes, and will be replaced with the same colour tubing.)

And one with the GPU installed aswell. I think the contrast of the purple tubing on the white backplate is nice :D

I really like the idea of using a backplate as "frontplate". Was it hard to mount it at the frontside of the gpu?
Edit: Clearly your fuckin with my brains :p.

Further, those colours... personally i wouldn't use any of those colours. But when joined together, they look freaking nice.

Splendid job!
