Thanks guys! I am extremly happy with the fine texture of the paint, it kind has an oem finish on it. Much better than gloss or matte, tried a satin on too but that just turned out to be horrible

Back with a new update!

Finally decided to go with circular mesh, the hex mesh i got was only 1mm thick aluminum and was not stable enough. This is the color i went with, gun metal gray. Will make a slight contrast to the black powder coating.


For quite a while I've been thinking about what to do for GPU supports, I've seen a few versions out there but nothing that would fit my mod. The biggest problem has been production time of something more complicated that i would have to mill or grind from aluminum. So when I finished another project of mine (homebuilt CNC router) I decided to put it into its first good use (haven't had time to use it since all my time has been spent on the case).

This is what i wanted but wouldn't have had time to complete without the router.

Test mount straight after milling all three parts.


Glass blasted and painted. Also countersunk one side and threaded M5 threads into the rear of the aluminum.


Close up of the support


Now you are probably wondering how i will physically attach the gpu's to the support. Haven't had time to see if it works but there is no reason this shouldn't. You mount it from the rear of the support so the tab from the GPU go between the support and the "extra bit" Then you just turn the screws to pinch the tab from the GPU to the support.


Also tried some engraving, my gf wasn't happy with the font, placement, size and basically everything, but I like it, It's about 0.5mm deep


Also covers a extra hole in the case, although this won't be visible when the motherboard is installed but still a nice touch Still needs a bit of filing to make it fit perfect.


More updates coming very soon seeing that the mod competition ends in about a weeks time.

Had to assemble the case in order to figure out where to drill holes in the mesh, so figured i would try to take a photo of the leds going at the same time, took around a 100photos before my gf snapped these two. It still doesn't show off the real red but it is awesome in my eyes This is as low as it goes, if i crank it up all the way u won't see the case. Gonna check with some ppl if there is a solution to get this right for the final shots.





Let me know what you think!

Looking great, Ace! Tried to bump rating up with five stars but no help..

Oh, and I'm a bit jealous for your machinery.
