[Scratch Build] Project BlackBird

Hey guys,

First of all, my name is Sagar and I am from India

This is my very first mod.


Project !dea,
Basically I have been fascinated by the LOCKHEED SR-71 BLACKBIRD jet (holds the record for the fastest speed). That is where the name comes from as well as the color scheme.





The parts that I will be using are:
Intel i7 4770
Gigabyte B85m D3H-A
Kingston HyperX Fury 1866Mhz 8Gb(4*2) stick [4gb still to come]
DeepCool DQ750 80+ Gold Semi-Modular power supply
Gigabyte GTX970 G1 Gaming or Zotac GTX 970 AMP! Extreme Edition [Still to buy]
Cryorig C1 or Raijintek Pallas [Still to buy]
LED strips [Still to buy]

Side quest 1

Couldn't afford the Sabertooth mobo from Asus, so will try and build one if I get the right material to build it


Right now am making a template out of paper





A test fit on the motherboard, haven't cut the slots for the 24pin, 8pin, SATA, etc.



It actually fits, just gotta get a few mm here and there and it's done

Forgot to upload the diagram of the angles that would be connecting everything together




Also wanted to clarify that all the parts that I am going to be building would be handmade.
None of them machined just the cuts would be made using power tools, none automated

Update 5

New update.
Had to go to anther city for the aluminum support angles

Here they are cut









They are not same in length due to the 45 degree angles that i cut.


Removing the excess metal using pliers



Removed as much as i could




A sample of the base







Filing and getting them to equal lengths is a work for tomorrow.

Update 6

Finally after 2.5hours of cutting and sanding got all the lengths equal as well as the edges smooth



This is what the system will look like when assembled



The mobo and PSU that i will be using are a bit longer on breadth as these are the spare and broken PSU and mobo respectively

A tough decision to make

3D carbon fiber vinyl or paint

After all the cutting and sanding the final dimensions of the aluminum angles are

Length = 488mm

Depth = 166mm

Height = 514mm

I tried a coat of black paint on an extra aluminum
angle and the finish with the paint is very satisfying
So I'm going to go with paint



Officially scrapping the carbon fiber idea

Looks promising.
Don't forget to leave room for your HDMI.DVI cable.

Thank you sir.
I already have enough space for the HDMI and dvi cables to fit properly without getting in the way of the fans on the top.
It is just now visible in the 3d renders

Update 7

Got the holes drilled and the only things left on aluminum are counter punching the holes, sanding and painting

Update 8

So finally found a drill to counter-sink the drilled holes




This is how the angles look like after drilling





After about 30mins of sanding and a broken nail the hands look like this



But the final result was well worth the pain




Now the only thing left is painting these angles orange
