Thank you

I have a small update for you.
I've agglutinated the three plates. It doesn look perfect but for me its more than enough because there will be an aluminium sheet mounted on it. However I have to grind and polish it.




On top I made a scre thread. I'm so happy that it works, one fail and the whole work was for nothing. But it works





Here you can see some air pockets, next time I have to use more glue to avoid that.



Thanks for reading

I have a "small" update for you

I bought a hole saw, very usefull tool.



works great:




Filed down the metal sheet.




After that, I continued with the inside fan grill for the upper side of the case.
At first marking -> center punshing -> drilling



At first with a 3,5mm drill and final with a 10mm one




After I've drilled all holes I have to connect them. I took my jigsaw an began to cut.




filed and grinded















The metall sheet for the front inside must be bended, so this was my bending mashine ^^ :



This was the result:



I think: big fail

Next try becomes much better. I milled a dent into the sheet. I used a Dremel and file.






I was very happy with the result so I want to make the final sheet. The bending looks nice but the holes I drilled before were at a wrong positions.





Next try:







Finished that and make a side panel for that.
assambled everything again:














Hope you like it

@saltire35: I actually dont know If I will powder coating this case. There are some reasons that prevents my doing that. I can do it on my one. I filled some parts with normal filler. I already have some cans of varnish here.
But I know... powder coating would by nicer... I'm still undetermined.

Small Update for you

Maybe you allready have noticed that I aspire a clean look. So I want to hide all cables.
I decided to make a 90° connector.
This is how I have done this:

original state:




drilled some wholes and cut down the overlaying pieces:







organised some flat cables, cut and crimped them:










The first cables in the connector:








Cut out this piece of aluminium:




and glued it on the connector by using 2K glue. need to file it down a little bit.




The cables should disappear behind the aluminium plate:




Besides that I bought some self made circuit boards, I will use it to make the connectors for the GPUs.




At first I cutted a small sheet to have the PCB. Cutting this smells like hell






I have to the crimps and soldered in some whires:










And nearly finished, just the cables are missing:










Gpu connector finished on the side of the gpu. My soldering skill aren't very good, but I will make a cover for it.











Thats it for now

I really like what you're doing with the cables, I think it's an awesome idea! Really looking forward to seeing how this shapes up! Keep up the good work.

Lately I dont have the time to work a lot on this project, but I've done some small mods to on the hardware.

I've opened the Laing D5 to change the cables:








Besides that I decided to change some parts on the mainboard, it was too colorful...







... and I cleaned the caps and removed some decals:





Some more pictues:

Yes its true, it goes on

The power Connector for the VGAs and Mobo seems to work, but the hardware in general seem to have some problems... even with some original cables...

At the moment I think I will change the whole hardware... at first this was just a fun project, but now I think I will use this system as my main system.
The problem is, that the tubing routes are defined by the acryl plate with the pumps. I need a mainboard which has an PCI-E Slot at the second and sixth position on a normal ATX Mainboard. I couldnt find a fitting board with a Z77 or Z87 chipset. Hmm... If I want to change, I need to upgrade on a X79 System.

Thinking about this problem I want to do some metal work.
I cutted and bended an aluminium sheet for the front.

This is the current status:

That's certainly a nice front panel. Planning to polish it/brush it/bead blast it?
