Franklin has yet to learn the way of the Dremel
Project: Evolutionary



Hi guys. Some of you will remember me of the casemod AlumaxX.



I won the Dutch casemod championship with it. Today I will start with something new, not a casemod but a custom build case. Some people told me they thought it was easier to mod an existing case then to build one yourself. I think it is easier to build it yourself and to prove it I will start building one

I found some sponsors for this project, so that's why I can already start a new project.

Bill Donnelly from Sapphire gave me a very nice white motherboard





Thanks Bill



Alex Chen from A.C. Ryan send me a huge box with casemod materials





Thanks Alex Chen from A.C. Ryan



Powersupply was a price at the Dutch casemod championship



Also think about using a PSone screen. It is not an original thing to do but it still is something that looks very cool. The screen itself is nothing special anymore, but the way I want to use it will be



I will use alumium profiles (25mm x 25mm.) to build a skeleton for the case.



and these profiles will be attached to each other with this sort of things ( don't know what the english name is )



The aluminium skeleton/ frame will look something like this



The aluminium has arrived today, so that's why I start this worklog today. I ordered the aluminium one month ago, so I had more then enough time to work the plans out. Started thinking and sketching three months ago.



My trip to Australia last summer gave me some inspiration. In Sydney I saw the Oprah House and I think everyone knows what it looks like. This is what the outtakes on top of the case will look like.



It's a sideview and a topview. What is my goal for this mod?
First of all I want to spend much time on all the details. I'm going to watercool the videocard(s) and the CPU. The radiator will be mounted inside the case, but the airflow will be seperated from the airflow within the case. The motherboard and videocard will be in a seperated compartment from the powersupply and the harddisks. The cooling will be very important in this mod, more important than silence. I think I will not use the small bore stuff from Aquacomputer this time. Everything will be controlled with an Aquacomputer Aquaero



The colors I will use are black ( lots of it) white, grey and a touch of orange.

Started with the frame tonight. First I had to saw the aluminium profiles to the needed sizes. Just like in the previous mod I will use a lot of handtools.



The first step is to saw the profiles for the horizontal layers of the frame and connect the pieces with these parts. These things can be pushed into the aluminium profiles. Very easy and it looks clean, no parts or screws sticking out.





At the bottom of the photograph from the frame you can see four sketches, these are the horizontal layers I will need. The first three layers are ready now and can be seen in the picture above. Tomorrow I will finish the fourth layer and after that I'll have to cut the profiles that will connect these four pieces, so that it will look like this

I loved AlumaxX, good luck making it all work out, I'm subscribing!

Maybe watching you build yours will give me ideas on how to build by own case

Also, does anyone else think that's a sexy mobo?

Almost finished the frame. This is what it looks like right now.





As I got further with the frame I noticed that I was short of one piece, I had ordered 12 of these pieces



but there only 11 of them in the box So I will have to contact the webshop for that. Don't know how long it will take for that thing to arrive here. I also will have to cut one more aluminium profile. So I only will need these things to finish the frame.
