Hey,

Sorry for the lack of updates but here is the update.

I have had to cut these little tabs so I can add my custom fan intake grills.



Custom fan grills.





I have also drilled out the rivets to make my own custom motherboard.




I have mark out the new motherboard and add the Res.


I have added the pass through fittings and a few bits of tubing I had spare to see what it would look like.




I have cut down the PCIE covers to fit the new motherboard tray.


I want to have both pumps, res and drains in the bassment part of the case so I have test fitted a pump and res I am using a old pump and old res.



Like I said at the start of this post I have been really busy I am fitting the temper glass front panel this weekend and I need to pick a colour theme I am thinking pink and blue or purple and green the basement cover and motherboard tray are going to be white.

if you have any question or feedback please leave below but here is one last photo of the front temper glass panel.

Update

Here is a little update I have been really busy with work so found it hard to work on the build

You can see where the weld is on the front grill, I have painted it but need to sand it down and paint again.

I have had a lot of issues with the tempered glass, I need longer screws. The build is really take shape not long left to do.



I really like the look of the front grill with tempered.





I really like how good the perplex look after I have painted it white.



I have added the pass through on to the mid plate I am looking at adding a custom res where the mid plate is but if I can not get this to work I will stick with this I have also painted this white



Going to get my fluid from Mayhem thinking of getting the dyes and mixing the colours myself.

Thanks for taken the time to read my post any feedback would be great.

Hi Guy's here is a small update.

I have added a hidden power button under my case near the front left leg. Its dead simple to do I just drilled the hole and drop it in I had some older power switch from a corsair build I did before xmas and just cut it down to size and sleeved it black. I have added some photos below.

I have turned the pump tops around so all the cables go out to the back of my case and sleeve them black I have a few photos below but once I am happy and made the partition I will make sure I take more photos so you can see where everything is placed and why.

Like I said just a small update will have more for you at the weekend.

Here is this weeks update,

I want to welcome a new sponsor to this project Nanoxia, They are going to supply the fluids to this build I am getting Opaque Green UV and the have mix me a custom Opaque purple these and going to pop.

Last weekend I added the fans to rads to check spacing, cable route and watercooling loop for the basement and added my drain port to the pump(photos below).

I redone the front fan intakes made them 10mm wider because I was having issues with the way the tempered glass was sitting on the old ones. I ran out of perplex to finish the front off but you can see how far I have got(photos below).

With me doing a custom res in the mid plate, I have had to re do the motherboard tray as I added holes for the pass throughs which are not going to line up with the new res. I have drawing a loop on the back of the motherboard tray to make sure I had room for the fitting and to check that I can run my cables.

I have place the motherboard and res on to the perplex to mark out all the holes and where I need to run the cables. I also added the motherboard stand off.

All photos below.

Once I get the fluid I will post some photos of the colours.

I do need some help I am not sure if I should go hard tube in the basement or stick to soft, feel free to leave a comment below.

I am hoping to get the custom res back this week and I will do a test fit, I also need to add a pass through from the basement to the back of motherboard tray. Once this is done the case will be off to paint then the fun starts with all the componets and doing the loop.

Thanks for checking out the post.

Hey guy’s,

This weeks update.

I have got the fluid from Nanoxia it looks great, I got the UV green and they did me a custom purple colour I have some photos below.

I had some bad news this week having a issues with the custom res so I have made a new simple design this weekend and hopefully it will be cut in the next few days I have found this hard as I am using a friends CNC. I am looking at getting one myself which will help for future builds.

I have took the ek waterblock off the 980ti and put the Alphacool Nexxos 980ti block on, this was so simple to do (one of the easiest installs ever)and the instruction are very simple to follow and all the thermal pads already cut to size I have added some photos below.

I went and got the ram on friday 16gb corsair RGB, these are going to really suit the build they are matt black. I test these at the weekend photos below

I ended the day putting window 10 on the system.

Next update I am hoping for a big one, have a few more bits of perplex to cut and paint then one more pass through hole from the basement to the top rad then it’s off to paint.

Thanks for checking out my build log any question or feedback leave below.
